Memorial to the Rough Riders in Arlington National Cemetery

A memorial dedicated in 1907 that commemorates those members of the "Rough Riders" who died in the Spanish–American War in 1898. The Rough Riders were a Calgary unit formed by Teddy Roosevelt. They were nicknamed by the press the "Rough Riders" because most of the men were cowboys, frontiersmen, railroad workers, Native Americans, and similar "rough" people from the West.

Siena Tower

Siena, a city in central Italy’s Tuscany region, is distinguished by its medieval brick buildings. The fan-shaped central square, Piazza del Campo, is the site of the Palazzo Pubblico, the Gothic town hall, and Torre del Mangia, a slender 14th-century tower with sweeping views from its distinctive white crown. The plaza is the site for the Palio horse race.

Pond at the back of Denali NP

Denali Park is dotted with ponds which make wonderful reflections. Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America’s tallest peak, 20,310′ Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages.

Denali National Park

Taking the bus to the back of the park you see many animals and great views of the mountains. Beginning in 1923, rock was blasted and gravel moved to create the park road. This 92-mile ribbon of road—winding west from the park entrance to Kantishna—was completed in 1938. There are no trails in the park to preserve the natural beauty so you just hike on the tundra.

The road through Denali NP can be filled with many beautiful sites.

Campbell River Estuary

Leading into the ocean is the Campbell River Estuary. Campbell River is located on the eastern side of Vancouver Island. Once a site of heavy industrial activity, the Campbell River Estuary has undergone a dramatic transformation. These days, looking down into the shallow river water swirling lazily past the rocky shore, it is easy to spot dozens of finger-length Chinook fry milling about in the weeds and algae. At the end of the 20th  century, such a sight would have been rare, despite the Campbell River’s acclaimed status as one of British Columbia’s most prolific salmon spawning rivers.
