The Grand Canyon is carved by the Colorado River in the state of Arizona. The Grand Canyon is 277 miles long, about 18 miles wide and a depth of more than a mile. Any clues that scientis usually rely on have been sweap away by the rivers water or barried by landslides or destroyed by volcanos. Rocks give geologiest complete geological rocords of earth; as if each rocks told a story that was billions of years old. One clue is the "Black rocks" located at the end of this river.
Thought to be one of Australia’s best ceramic artists, Dr. Thancoupie Gloria Fletcher has had over twenty solo exhibitions, both in Australia and abroad. Dr. Thancoupie Fletcher spent her formative years near Napranum,
Dale Chihuly is an American glass blower (Dale Patrick Chihuly, 2015). The piece of art I’ll mainly be looking at is Citron and Cobalt Tower. This piece was located directly in the center of the museum as soon as you walked in to the show room. It caught my eye and I knew immediately what I wanted to do my paper on.
Little Cottonwood Canyon is a site bursting with geological history, rock formations earthquake potential on the fault, prehistoric glacial formations, landslides, and many hazards associated with it. The Wasatch fault is bound to have a enormous earthquake in the future and has left behind numerous scars. The mountains have been engraved by glacial formations dated back to the Ice Age (~14,000 years ago). Rock falls and landslides have left hefty boulders as indication of erosion and moisture in the rocks. The hazards on this mountain range are mass wasting, radon, earthquakes, and flooding of Little Cottonwood Creek.
Designed by Lee Schmidt and Brian Curley, this 18-hole championship golf course proves the perfect course for any player. Maintained to the highest of standards, the wide fairways and wavy greens prove to be easily playable, and have become a trademark at Copper Canyon. If this doesn't encourage you to play here, perhaps you will be indulged by the surrounding landscapes that prove to make Copper Canyon a truly special course. You will also find that the surrounding landscapes is not all that this golf course offers in regards to its beauty, as over 11 beautiful lakes are featured on the course itself, making an all round mesmerizing golf course.
Most people think that the Providence Canyon which is also known as "Little Grand Canyon" should stay a state park. Well, I believe that it should become a national park. There are so many things that the park would make better if it were a national park.
Los Angeles often gets a reputation for being an urban wasteland, disconnected and distant from the natural world. However, this isn’t the case at all and there are lots of great hiking opportunities close by. So, lace up your hiking boots and make a plan to get some exercise and take in the gorgeous scenery!
I am going to be going to attend Big Morongo Canyon Preserve to volunteer a day on September 30th. I am a 10th grade student that is currently going to Yucca Valley High School. First task I need to do is receive permission from my guardians to go to the preserve. I have discussed with my parents today September, 12 what I am doing and they are one hundred percent on board. My parents are willing to be my transportation there and back.
National Geographic’s American science journalist, Michelle Nijhuis published an article on August 27th, 2014 discussing the process of the removal of the Glines Canyon Dam on the Elwha River in Washington State. The removal of the Glines Canyon dam is the largest dam removal that has ever taken place thus far. The removal of the dam began in late 2011, 3 years later after the removal of the dam was complete the salmon began again migrating down river, trees and vegetation began to sprout in the reservoir bed, and sediment that was once trapped behind the dams walls are now rebuilding beaches at Elwha’s outlet to the sea. In the last 5 miles of the 45 mile Elwha river, where Olympic National Park now lies, the salmon run were world famous and
Two works of art that stood out to me are Dorthea Lange's "Migrant Mother", and Robert Smithson's "Spiral Jetty". "Migrant Mother" is a photograph of a single mom/ migrant worker with her two children during the great depression. "Spiral Jetty" is a colossal sculpture of a spiral in the Great Salt Lake. The Mediums used in these art pieces differ greatly. "Migrant Mother's" medium is simply a photograph. "Spiral Jetty", however, consists of over 12 million lbs of rock, salt, and earth.
On Tuesday, March 29, 2016 I attended a geography film event at Sykes called “Remembering Hells Canyon.” The creator of this film, Patricia Keith, attended this event. Patricia Keith teaches video production at a college level. Her production company, Buffalo Eddy Productions has created many films. They’re mostly known for making in-hand adventures films in places like South America, Southeast Asia, China, Canada and much more. Patricia explained how difficult it was to film these adventure films. Most of these films are constructed in a remote location. These remote locations are very hard to access by foot. Buffalo eddy used transportation like busses, trains, bush planes, carts, wagons, ferries, canoes, and land cursers to access the remote
The Honey Creek is a site where nature can truly be explored, but that is not what makes it so amazing. It's actually what has been learned and what can be learned from it! For example, later in the 1980's scientists were able to go more in depth in the study of how/why burned rock middens formed, but they hadn't yet completely gotten all the information they needed to understand the subject fully. The Honey Creek Site helped pull more pieces of information using the charred plant remains, field documentation, good dirt, and lots of soil samples. This is just one example of how Honey Creek has helped researchers and scientists find out more about nature and our
Hello, Chyler! I think my personal favorite work of Ando (Utagawa) Hiroshige is “Sanno Festival Procession at Kojimachi I-chome” (picture below). This woodblock print is just 1 of 118 different woodblock print making up Hiroshige’s “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo,” which is considered “one of the greatest achievements of Japanese art” by the Brooklyn Museum (“Hiroshige's One Hundred Famous Views of Edo”). “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo” is a collection of woodblock prints, created between the years of 1856-1858, that focused on the landscape of Tokyo, Japan. Hiroshige is famous for his landscape prints and this project did not disappoint (“ANDO HIROSHIGE BIOGRAPHY”). It is full of beautiful scenery and colorful pictures. I have left a link
Here we are going to talk about our two paintings in more detail and The First Landscape Painting for discussion is Uragami Shunkin, Spring landscape, 1821, Ink on silk. This large painting has many Japanese traits but also carries over numerous Chinese
The second sculpture I want to talk about today is “Campus Talk” by Dennis Smith. This is another permanent sculpture on Western Michigan University and is one that everyone usually sees when they are heading to the library. This sculpture is my third favorite one on campus at this point in time. The sculpture has two students talking to another student on a bike. Dennis Smith also did a superb job using the elements of art throughout this sculpture. When observing the sculpture, the first thing you notice is the contour lines in the sculpture such as the book cover, fingers, and the straps on the backpack. These lines help define the outside edges of the sculpture. The next element of art that one can see in this sculpture is shape. The wheel on the bike is a geometric shape because it is a circle. This a great example of this element and one that anyone who views it can find. The third element present in this sculpture is value. In the sculpture, there is a bit of a grey scale although the sculpture is mostly light green now due to the weather. The fourth element present in this sculpture is the texture. The sculpture has a simulated texture which means that it
