Lower Antelope Canyon was once quiet. Now it seems that time restrictions have become crowded with tourists. Then, "Don't allow GoPros, tripods, monopods in the tour. Only one camera per person."


ロウアー・アンテロープ・キャニオンはかつては、静かでした。今は時間規制等ツーリストで混むようになったそう。それから、「ツアーでGoPros、三脚、一脚を許可しないでください。お一人様一台のカメラに限ります。」とのことです。

Lower Yellowstone River Falls


Cascading from the 590,000 year old Canyon Rhyolite lava flow, Lower Yellowstone Falls is the largest volume waterfall in the Rocky Mountains of the United States. These falls (44°43′05″N 110°29′46″W) are 308 feet (94 m) high, or nearly twice as high as Niagara Falls. The volume of water flowing over Lower Yellowstone Falls can vary from 680 cu ft/s (19 m3/s) in the autumn, to 8,400 cu ft/s (240 m3/s) at peak runoff in late springtime.[citation needed] The flow rate of Lower Yellowstone Falls is much less than that of Niagara Falls, as the Yellowstone River is only 70 feet (21 m) at the point at which it goes over the lower falls, whereas the Niagara River is 2,600 feet (790 m) in width as it approaches the crest line of Horseshoe Falls.

ローワー・イエローストーン・リバ-・フォール

59万年前のキャニオン流紋岩質溶岩流から流れ落ちるローワーイエローストーン滝は、アメリカ合衆国のロッキー山脈で最大の体積の滝です。これらの滝(44°43'05” N 110°29'46” W) 身長は308フィート(94 m)で、ナイアガラの滝の約2倍です。 イエローストーン滝下を流れる水の量は、秋の680立方フィート/秒(19 m3 /秒)から、春の終わりのピーク流出時の8,400立方フィート/秒(240 m3 /秒)までさまざまです。 ナイアガラ川は2,600フィート(790メートル)であるのに対し、イエローストーン川はより低い滝を通過する時点でわずか70フィート(21メートル)であるため、より低いイエローストーンフォールズの流量はナイアガラの滝のそれよりはるかに少ないです。 幅がホースシュー滝の頂上線に近づくにつれて幅が狭くなります。

ARIZONA: Saguaro National Park - 0004

Saguaro flowers

Nikon F3 / Fujichrome Velvia 50




フラワーズ

サグアロの花
白いワックス状の花は4月から6月にかけて現れ、日没後には大きく開いて午後の終わりには閉じます。彼らは日の出後も蜜を作り続けている。花は自家和合性ではないため、他家受粉が必要です。胚珠が多数存在するため、完全な受粉には大量の花粉が必要です。この花粉は、非常に多くの雄しべによって生産され、1つの注目に値するケースでは、1つの花に3,482個ありました。よく受粉した果実は数千の小さな種子を含んでいます。サグアロスは重複した受粉システムを持っている、すなわち、ほんの一部の受粉種が存在していても完全な結実が可能である。

主な受粉者はミツバチ、コウモリ、そして白い翼の鳩です。ほとんどの年、日中の訪問者、主にミツバチは果物の主な貢献者です。他の日周花粉媒介者は、コスタハチドリ、クロシハチドリ、アカハシハチドリ、フード付きオリオール、スコットのオリオール、ヒラキツツキ、金色のちらつき、ベルディン、および家のフィンチなどの鳥です。

主な夜間花粉媒介者は、蜜を食べている、長さの少ないコウモリです。花の夜間の開花、花粉の夜間の成熟、非常に豊かな蜜、コウモリの体重に耐えることができる耐久性のある花、および夜間に放出される香りのような、多くの花の特徴がコウモリ受粉に向けられています。さらに、花粉の中のアミノ酸はコウモリの泌乳を支えるのを助けるようです。




Flowers

Saguaro flowers
The white, waxy flowers appear in April through June, opening well after sunset and closing in mid-afternoon. They continue to produce nectar after sunrise.Flowers are self-incompatible, thus requiring cross-pollination. Large quantities of pollen are required for complete pollination because many ovules are present. This pollen is produced by the extremely numerous stamens, which in one notable case totaled 3,482 in a single flower. A well-pollinated fruit contains several thousand tiny seeds. Saguaros have a redundant pollination system, i.e. full fruit set is possible even if only a fraction of the pollinating species are present.

Main pollinators are honey bees, bats, and white-winged doves. In most years, diurnal visitors, mostly honey bees, are the main contributors for fruit. Other diurnal pollinators are birds such as Costa's hummingbird, the black-chinned hummingbird, the broad-billed hummingbird, the hooded oriole, Scott's oriole, the Gila woodpecker, the gilded flicker, the verdin, and the house finch.

The primary nocturnal pollinator is the lesser long-nosed bat, feeding on the nectar. A number of floral characteristics are geared toward bat pollination: nocturnal opening of the flowers, nocturnal maturation of pollen, very rich nectar, position high above ground, durable blooms that can withstand a bat's weight, and fragrance emitted at night. Further, the amino acids in the pollen appear to help sustain lactation in bats.

Grand Canyon Lodge


The entrance to the Grand Canyon National Park NORTH RIM is located 30 miles south of Jacob Lake on Highway 67; the actual rim of the canyon is an additional 14 miles south. Jacob Lake, AZ is located in northern Arizona on Highway 89A, not far from the Utah border. Grand Canyon lies entirely within the state of Arizona.

Here, at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, you can best experience the grandest of canyons. Here, you can experience the canyon's colors, shadows and formations in quiet reflection and repose. Settle into a western log cabin or a timbered guest room. Take an easy hike along the rim or ride a mule along steep trails into the canyon. Pause to watch the antics of a foraging squirrel. Head to the lodge and simply watch a summer storm roll up the canyon. And listen. Listen to the way a breeze blows through the pinions and ponderosas. It's true that the majority of Grand Canyon visitors miss the spectacular North Rim and miss all this - the canyon's lure of rugged solitude. Here, at the North Rim, you find the perfect balance of marvel and creature comforts. You settle in. The lodge's on-site restaurant doesn't just feature breathtaking views and great food, it has also been certified as a green restaurant since 2009. Feel free to enjoy your meal, take in the scenery, and rest easy knowing that we're doing everything we can to preserve the Grand Canyon Lodge for generations to come.
