View from Angel’s Landing, Zion National Park (Utah)

A strenuous, 8 kilometer hike will take you to this stunning view overlooking Zion Canyon atop Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park. Towering canyon cliffs stand around the valley, as the Virgin River winds itself through the canyon floor.

earthstory:

Natural arch

Puente del Inca is a natural rock bridge formed in the Andes Mountains of Argentina. It is made of travertine, a form of calcium carbonate that precipitates from flowing water. At this site, warmed water is being released from a nearby hot spring and as it flows over the River Las Cuevas, carbonate minerals come out of solution and grow the bridge. The deposit is thick enough that large groups of people have used the natural bridge as a route over the river valley for centuries.

Obama administration tells the Redskins: You want a new stadium in D.C.? How about you get a new name first?

Obama administration tells the Redskins: You want a new stadium in D.C.? How about you get a new name first?:

The Washington Post’s Jonathan O’Connell reports that the National Park Service will not allow the Washington Redskins to build a new stadium in D.C. if it insists on keeping its current name.

The Redskins currently play in FedEx Field, which is in Prince George’s County, but D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has been lobbying to have the team return to the city itself by building a new facility where Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium currently stands. That land, however, is owned by the National Park Service.

In order to convince the team to build a new stadium at that location, Bowser would need to extend the city’s lease of the 190 acres beneath RFK beyond the 22 years it currently has left. But Interior Secretary Sally Jewell has repeatedly stated that the Park Service would not agree to extend the lease unless the team ditched the “relic of the past” that is its name.

“Personally, I think we would never consider naming a team the ‘Blackskins’ or the ‘Brownskins’ or the ‘Whiteskins.’ So, personally, I find it surprising that in this day and age, the name is not different,” she told ABC News last year.

Vegans Also Need To Remember -- It's not about YOU -- It's About The ANIMALS

The issue: We’re in an era right now when we are finally starting to see celebrities converting to veganism and plant-based diets, and as a result, it’s finally becoming acceptable to even *mention* the word “Vegan” on TV. Yet quite a few loud and obnoxious “Vegans” can’t help but miss the grandness of the forest for the tiniest sprouts, focusing instead on a petty tabloid-level game of “let’s see which famous people are less perfect than me.”   

This is adapted from a comment I posted to Vegan.com’s Facebook Page regarding the video at the bottom from David Duchovny’s appearance on Bill Maher.

Hurray for both of them!
I’m 100% Vegan and 100% supportive of ANY mention of animal rights and veganism in the media that can EASILY result in hundreds of millions of animals saved from torture.   

In the end, it’s not about perfectionism — It’s 100% about saving the animals. If 20 million people switch to 50% vegan, how many animals does that save? You can do the math… But it’s way more than that! Because this is a MOVEMENT, and a mass conversion of millions of people even PARTIALLY to “vegetarian-ish” will change the media conversation — it will become a “trend” — and the market will respond to the trend — and it will become mainstream — and people will respond to the new industry push towards cheaper plant-based foods — and the market will respond to the new demand — and people will start becoming more open to changing their minds once their stomachs and tongues are satisfied — and guess what? ANIMALS WILL BE SAVED IN RECORD NUMBERS.   

So stop the petty tabloid-like fascination with imperfect people. This is about ANIMALS.  (…)

All in all, much quicker and more efficient than setting up a whole campfire just to boil some water!

How To Make Char Cloth To Light Your Campfire Faster Without Matches


Never worry about starting a campfire again! You can easily prepare your own quick lighting emergency “char cloth” with just a tuna can, T-shirt, and a your barbecue grill.

Essentially the video describes making a quick and dirty DIY gasification stove — like the ones many backpacking survivalists use to cook food — but the focus of this project is simply to get at the valuable leftover charcoal without the (slight) added complexity of designing an efficient camp stove.

But if you already have a gasifying camp stove — like the SoloStove or another homemade version — you can now add versions of “char cloth” to your emergency kit. (I love the cotton balls idea!) ...

How Does A Four Wheel Camper Roof Lift Work?


I love the clever way the roof lift is done on these pop-up campers.

No hydraulics or fancy expensive mechanisms — just simple mechanical elegance. Gotta love it.

It’d be great if I could see one up close so I can figure out the cheapest easiest way to duplicate this for my own DIY camper. I also wonder how it would change things if the popup was much taller, so the bars would have to cross. Hmm… Ideas, anyone?

In contrast, you can see the standard lifter system employed in Four Wheel Campers beginning at about 1:09 in this video.




…And in this video which gives a really nice explanation of the process beginning at 1:30.
