It started at the North Pole and it stretched to the 37th parallel which is along the southern edges of Virginia, Kentucky, and Missouri. The estimated area it covered was around five million square miles, and at parts it could reach up to ten thousand feet thick (Britannica). Even though the lakes in Michigan are proof that the Laurentide Ice Sheet melted, it did so very slowly, and there is even some proof that our ancestors lived in the area underneath where the great lakes are today (draining the great lakes). As it retreated, it carved, and under all of that weight compacted the crust enough to create at least five basins that are now the Great lakes. This created an area in where twenty percent of the world’s fresh surface water resides (TED ED).
Journal Entries of Hannah’s Journey through the Sierras Beginnings: The long journey starts in the Yosemite Village and ends in Whitney Portal (Map is on the last page). The average miles hiked per day are 10.5 miles out of 210 miles. The following course includes several divine places described by Muir. Day 1:
Some of these include wildlife viewing, wilderness exploration, cultural tourism, hiking and backpacking, and river floating. Many of the animals found here live only in the tundra and are a rare sight. Hiking is a popular way to view the tundra’s sweeping river flats, open foothills, and rolling treeless uplands. Dealing with the varied terrain requires that only experienced hikers go on these adventures. Many travelers use the tundra’s many rivers as travel routes.
The other type of river that resulted because of glaciation is the meandering river. Wisconsin has such a flat terrain where the glacier used to lie, that meandering rivers are very common. These rivers are characterized by their curviness, which sometimes curve so much that they form oxbow lakes: a u-shaped body of water (Ice age geology, n.d.). Meandering rivers and oxbow lakes are pictured
Minnesota also had the geology to support many fur bearing animals. The fur business is an important part of Minnesota history. For years, Native Americans and white settlers used Minnesota’s forests, lakes, and rivers to trap, trade, and transport valuable furs. Minnesota’s location on Lake Superior was and still is ideal for many trading and shipping

Chapter 8 Glaciers Shape The Land: The ice age is explored by the author in this chapter and he explains, how glaciers shaped geography. The strategies and tactics of warfare in different geographical land structure and elevation are explained by the author. Winters brought an example of the Alps mountain in WWI and its advantages for the warriors. He also writes on how glaciers shape the land in the different part of the world, such as the formation of the Baltic sea and great lake.

In “Down by the River”, by Rowan Jacobsen he says, snowmelt on the Rocky Mountain was swelling its size 40 times each spring, which caused the biggest deltas in the world due to the inundation of the floodplain, which runs 100 miles south from Yuma to the Gulf of California. He says, Lake Powell Reservoir had become a well-trained stream that never left the banks and overflowed by itself into the desert wetlands. Jacobsen says, the ocean-to-ocean bridge was the only direct connection between Yuma and the Quechan downtown reservation, but was allowed to fall to ruins. He says, like the tribes and city didn’t speak to one another Flynn attended the monthly tribal council meetings that the Quechan had because nothing could be done without their
According to a newly published review of decades of archaeological research, humans worldwide have been using psychoactive substances since prehistoric times. What started with the fermentation of wild berries and collecting mushrooms filled with psilocybin has now evolved to one of humanities biggest industries. Pharmaceutical companies spend millions of dollars each year on the research and development of pills, while at the same time a college student using household chemicals is making his own substance in his dorm room. Students, servers, doctors, soldiers, lawyers, politicians, parents, artists, teachers, police officers, fire fighters, and judges were all participants in Baker’s series. Showcasing the diversity of those who have the

The natural geologic area that I am choosing to do is The Yellowstone Caldera, which is located in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Yellowstone Caldera is also known as a “super volcano”. The population count for visitors Yellowstone National Park is 308,138,711 people; it was last updated in June of 2014 ( Chuck Raasch , 2013 ). Most of the things that attract people to Yellowstone Park are site seeing and beautiful trials.
This was to be done by digging a large tunnel from the lake to the neighboring river allowing the river to be navigable year round. A large gladiator arena was built and a big celebration was planned for the opening of the gates to the tunnel. Unfortunately, the tunnel was far too small and Claudius and many others had to flee for their life due to rapidly rising flood waters the tunnel created.
