Montana is a large and lovely state. It has a population of 1,005,141 people. The big sky of Montana covers more than 147,046 square miles. It is considered the fourth largest state in the nation. The size of Montana is equivalent to the combined size of Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New York. It is located in the North West of the United States. Granite Peak is the highest point in Montana.
The physical characteristics of the interior plains are spruce trees, pine trees, fir trees and its tundra landscape. Many know that spruce, pine and fir trees are used as a Christmas tree to hang up your ornaments during December 25th. But these trees are more important than that. Just like any other normal tree, these trees follow the photosynthesis cycle, and inhale carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen. People may not live in the Interior Plains, but they work there and need some oxygen to breathe!
Climate: The climate of the interior plains is continental, which basically means that the climate is relatively dry with extremely hot summers and cold winters. The weather is very diverse and may change quickly without warning. In the North of the physiographic region, the winters are long and the summers are short and cool whereas in the South, the the winters are harsh with little precipitation and long summers. Although the humid weather and the flat lands create an ideal place to grow crops like wheat and corn, the growing season itself is quite short, even in the southern region due to the lack of precipitation needed for diversified crops to flourish. The flat prairies east to the Rockies is a meeting ground for Arctic, Pacific and
The summers are warm and short. The winters are cold and long. Precipitation ranges from more than 500 mm per year in the north to less than 300 mm in the south of the Prairies. The winter mean temperatures for the coldest months vary from -9.4°C in Lethbridge and -18.3°C in Winnipeg. In contrast, the mean temperature for the warmest month in Winnipeg is 19.7°C. The grasses tend to have long roots which penetrate deep into the soil where they could find moisture. The northern edge of this ecozone marks the beginning of the transition into forest areas. Prior to agricultural settlement in the late 19th century, the Prairie ecozone was the home of millions of bison. Today, mammals of this ecozone include mule and white-tailed deer, coyote, pronghorn (south-central portion), badger, whitetail jackrabbit, Richardson's ground squirrel, northern pocket gopher and the prairie dog. Unique bird species include ferruginous hawk, greater prairie chicken, sharp-tailed grouse, American avocet, burrowing owl, great blue heron, black-billed magpie and Baltimore oriole. Plains grizzlies, swift fox and greater prairie chickens are a few of animals to disappear from the
Canada is a very large country, with areas of land in various climate regions, and land regions, thus having many ecozones that differentiate from another. The most populated ecozone in Canada is the Mixedwood Plains; the ecozone we are located in, named after the mixedwood forests that are native to the area. The Mixedwood Plains is one of the smallest of the Canadian ecozones, spanning only 175 963 kilometres squared. The Mixedwood Plains is bordered by three of the great lakes on the southern side of the ecozone, and comes up along the St Lawrence river to southern Quebec, and fills the tip of Ontario. It has rolling plains and small rock formations and escarpments. The Mixedwood Plains contains over half of the Canadian population as
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.
The Blackland Prairie is a very diverse ecoregion, despite its diminutive size. There are many unique types of animals in the Blackland Prairie; here are a few examples of animals in the Blackland Prairie. One example of one of these animals is the nine-banded armadillo. The nine-banded armadillo is a large, short and brown armadillo with a long tail and nine lines on its shell (therefore its name). They typically eat grubs, insects, berries, and eggs. This scaly critter lives in most of Texas besides the west, they typically live in woods, brush, grasslands and forests. Another one of the many examples of animals in this diverse ecoregion is the black-tailed prairie dog. These chubby, stubby, brown, and furry balls of cuteness live along the border of Mexico. It lives in dry, flat, sparsely vegetated grasslands. These rodents like to consume things like plants, insects, seeds, and grasses. These items make up most of their diet. They are habitat modifiers just like beavers, they build burrows underground close to each other. These are called towns.
Central Plains Central Plains is well known to be the “corn and wheat belt of the bread basket”, due to its numerous farms that produce amount of the nation supply. It has also create a gigantic amount of dairy in central plains, that helps wisconsin's becoming producing the most cheese of any state in the country. Central Plains have develop from many different cultures such as Native American tribes identify ways of harvesting and preparing crops, where the Native Americans demonstrate these technique to the Europeans. And many of these procedure can be seen in today’s Midwest society.
Appalachian Plateau: more like Appalachian platWOAH! The Appalachian plateau is the smallest and northern most region in Georgia as well as being home to many superb physical features. Its abundance of natural beauty attracts visitors far and wide to the peach state. It showcases many natural attractions including, infamous Lookout Mountain, Sand Mountain, Cloudland Canyon State Park, Pigeon Mountain, and many more throughout the area stretching from Alabama to New York. The expanse has many natural resources consisting mostly of sedimentary rock-limestone, sandstone, and shale. It also contains resources such as ironstone and is the only known source of coal in Georgia. The Plateau is of great economic significance due to the many coalfields
The Oregon Trail, was a pathway that led thousands of Americans in the east, through the continent to find more opportunity somewhere else. It was a long adventure, being 2,170 miles, add or take a little because people found shortcuts over the years. It was a dangerous journey, reaching from Independence, Missouri to Willamette Valley in Oregon, but it was also full of rivers, harsh deserts, and rough climate. Also, new diseases and wagon accidents ravaged the brave souls, around 400,000, making a successful trip across the continent, really something to be proud of. Over decades of wagons carving the ground, from soil to hard stone, it has left markings of wagon wheels across the lands that it crosses such as Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho, and Oregon, where the trail splits up north and south to Washington to California.
How might it feel to travel the Oregon Trail during the 1800s? Harsh weather, fear of hostile Indians, and maybe a tragic death? It would not be pleasant. Life on the trail would be full of many long days walking or riding in the wagon. Mary should not take the dangerous journey across the Oregon Trail for three reasons: it would be a six-month trip, Mary is scared, Mary does not really want to go.
Is hiking the Appalachian Trail right for you? Taking on a journey stretching well over 2,100 miles, covering fourteen states (from Maine to Georgia) by foot is no simple stroll where at the end of the day a comfortable bed and
Puget prairies are a type of ecosystem that can only be found in small areas in the Puget lowlands as well as in some places in British Columbia. The Puget prairies were created by retreating glaciers thousands of years ago (South Puget Sound Prairies, 2016). The prairies were then maintained by Native American tribes from the surrounding area ("South Puget Sound Prairies," 2016). The Salish tribe systematically burned trees growing into the prairies to maintain the intricate ecosystem, a strategy the prairieland relies on ("The Role of Fire," 2016). Coastal Salish natives lived in the Thurston County prairies long before the arrival of white settlers in 1792. The Salish tribe has since split into the Nisqually, Squaxin, and Chehalis tribes
There is no vanity on the AT (The Appalachian Trail) and more than some walk in the woods. Seems like it would be just an adventure. It started as a journey and a leap of faith to hike the entire Georgia section of the AT in less than 6 days. Day 4 it became a transformation. I saw less than 10 people hiking for 6 days and 90 miles. I hiked till 7pm each day (one hour prior to sunset) and wherever the spirit led me, I set up my tent, ate my food, journaled, slept and got up at 6 am in order to be back on the trail as soon as I could see it. Relentless steep climbs on all types of terrain and many painful descents that caused much knee pain. Several nights totally alone in the wilderness. Lots of praying and talking to God out loud.
Eastern Woodlands The name of my tribe is the Eastern Woodlands. The location of my tribe is in the Southeast portion of North America. The Eastern Woodlands have more than one tribe. Two of them were called the Mohawks and Huron. The Eastern Woodlands covered up the East Coast of North America from the Atlantic to the West of the Mississippi River. This is some of the information about my tribe called the Eastern
