Initally, al-Qaeda considered targeting nuclear power plants on 9/11, but decided to go against it because they feared it would get too out of control. Four passenger airlines, all of which departed from airports in the northeastern United States bound for California, were hijacked by 19 al-Qaeda members. One plane hit the Pentagon just outside of Washington D.C., the second plane crashed in a field in Pennslyvania, and the last two planes crashed into the Twin Towers. Within one hour and 42 minutes both 110 story towers were completely on the ground, with debris filling the air and fires starting to spread. Numerous other buildings at the World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan were destroyed or badly damaged.
Sirmilik National Park is located in northeastern Nunavut and is one of the most isolated, yet marvelous national parks in Canada. It was officially established in 1999 and holds on to 22,250km2 of land. To begin, the word “sirmilik” means “place of glaciers” in Inuktitut. One form of these glaciers are cirque glaciers (bowl-like carves). They have influenced the mountainous areas of this park.
The attack on Pearl Harbor had the majority of US fighter planes destroyed by 0800 hours. They were lined up on the airfields to prevent damage, there were also torpedo planes that inflicted most of the damage to the battleships at Pearl Harbor. This attack from the torpedoes lasted for an estimated amount of 11 minutes and was followed by bombers. When Mitsuo Fuchida gave the order to attack Pearl Harbor which was at 0753 hours, he said “Tora Tora Tora” to give the order.
One thing that greatly affects change is, of course, seasons. In the winter, everything seems dead. Haskell writes: “Death juts from the snow: fallen, partially decayed maple branches and the frayed stubs of leafcup stems protrude, each stem ringed by a circle of sublimated snow that reveals the dark litter below.” On the contrary, in the spring everything is coming back to life: “My walk to the mandala has become fraught. Every footstep threatens to crush half a dozen wildflowers, and so I step slowly, trying to pick a way that does not leave a trail of crushed beauty.” Haskell is aware that beauty is fragile and does not want to take it away, however, it will naturally fade on its own no matter what. Haskell witnessed this happening and he describes it as so: “Springtimes perfect leaves have turned ragged.
Glacier National Park was the world 's first International Peace Park and is called the "Crown of the Continent."

According to the National Geographic, a bluff is a small, rounded cliff that usually overlooks a body of water, or where a body of water once stood. The reason Michigan has bluffs is because when Glaciers move they do not pick up their ‘feet’. Instead, they bulldoze the landscape picking up everything in their path. Including rocks, organic matter, and even possibly a sloth with a broken leg, the list is inexhaustible. When the glacier stops its advance these objects have been moved hundreds of miles over thousands of years.

After the two hour long attack had finished just about every battleship- USS Neveda, USS Tennessee, USS Pennsylvania, USS Maryland, USS Utah, USS West Virginia, USS California, USS Oklahoma, and USS Arizona- had dramatic damage. Every battleship beside USS Utah and USS Arizona were eventually repaired.
As we finally stepped off the plane and looked out the windows on the way into the airport, we saw the beautiful snow globe of Montana where we had planned our winter skiing trip. I was traveling with my family and my cousins who we often travels with. We would usually go a lot farther than within the United States, but for this particular trip we were more interested in the skiing than being tourists. The Bozeman, Montana airport was a farm. There were so many different animals all over the wall it might as well had been a hunting lodge; however, this in no way scared me off for this trip.
