The moose (in North America) or elk (in Eurasia) (Alces alces) is a member of the New World deer subfamily and is the largest and heaviest extant species in the deer family. Most adult male moose have distinctive broad, palmate ("open-hand shaped") antlers; most other members of the deer family have antlers with a dendritic ("twig-like") configuration. Moose typically inhabit boreal forests and temperate broadleaf and mixed forests of the Northern Hemisphere in temperate to subarctic climates. Hunting and other human activities have caused a reduction in the size of the moose's range over time. It has been reintroduced to some of its former habitats. Currently, most moose occur in Canada, Alaska, New England (with Maine having the most of the lower 48 states), New York State, Fennoscandia, the Baltic states, Poland, Kazakhstan and Russia.
Its diet consists of both terrestrial and aquatic vegetation. The most common predators of the moose are wolves, bears, and humans. Unlike most other deer species, moose do not form herds and are solitary animals, aside from calves who remain with their mother until the cow begins estrus (typically at 18 months after birth of the calf), at which point the cow chases them away. Although generally slow-moving and sedentary, moose can become aggressive, and move quickly if angered or startled. Their mating season in the autumn features energetic fights between males competing for a female.
I drew a shadow over the scarred side of his face because:
1) I'm lazy
2) Sal's disfigurement is supposed to be kinda scary to look at (as canonically implied in chapter 4) and I'm not sure how to portray that
3) I wanna keep my art relatively simple (I'm still trying to find the right balance)
10. GLACIER: Rounding out the top ten most popular parks is Glacier National Park, which covers over a million acres in Montana and attracted 3.3 million people in 2017. The park's Going-to-the-Sun Road is considered by many to be one of the world's most spectacular drives.
9. GRAND TETON: The peaks of the Teton Range, regal and imposing as they stand nearly 7,000 feet above the Wyoming valley floor, make one of the boldest geological statements in the Rockies. The park's jewel-like lakes, blue and white glaciers, and naked granite pinnacles enticed more than 3.3million visitors last year.
8. OLYMPIC: More than three million people a year explore the unspoiled terrain of Olympic National Park in Washington State. No roads cross through the park, which contains three distinct ecosystems: temperate rain forest (seen here), subalpine forest and wildflower meadow, and rugged Pacific shore.
7. ACADIA: Sea and mountain meet at Acadia National Park in Maine. Most of the park is on Mount Desert Island, a patchwork of parkland, private property, and seaside villages.
6. YELLOWSTONE: The world's very first national park remains the showpiece of the National Park Service, visited by 4.1 million people last year. The vast reserve—covering 2.2 million acres in Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana—has craggy peaks, explosive geysers, alpine lakes, deep forests, and a wealth of wild animals. The stars are bison, bears, sheep, moose, and wolves.
5. YOSEMITE: "No temple made with human hands can compete with Yosemite," wrote John Muir, whose crusading led to the creation of the California park in 1890. Over four million visitors come to this temple annually, most of them spending time in the Yosemite Valley. This mile-wide, 7-mile-long canyon was cut by a river and then widened and deepened by glacial action.
4. ROCKY MOUNTAIN: Sweeping vistas are a main attraction at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. The park contains 150 lakes and 450 miles of streams, plus ecosystems ranging from wetlands to pine forests to montane areas to alpine tundra.
3. ZION: Rising in Utah’s high plateau country, the Virgin River carves its way through Zion Canyon to the desert below. The park’s striking vertical topography—rock towers, sandstone canyons, and sharp cliffs—attracted 4.5 million visitors in 2016.
2. GRAND CANYON: In 2017, 6.2 million people witnessed the wonders of one of the largest canyons on Earth. A mile deep and up to 18 miles wide at spots, the Grand Canyon is so vast that even from the best vantage point only a fraction of its 277 miles can be seen.
1. GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS: Ensconced at number one is Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which drew more than eleven million visitors last year—about twice the number of the second most popular park. Most visitors see the park from a mountain-skimming scenic highway; many take to the more than 800 miles of hiking trails across North Carolina and Tennessee.

Greenland is an autonomous territory within the Danish Realm. Though physiographically a part of the continent of North America, Greenland has been politically and culturally associated with Europe (specifically Norway and Denmark, the colonial powers) for more than a millennium, beginning in 986. The majority of its residents are Inuit, whose ancestors migrated from Alaska through Northern Canada, gradually settling across the island by the 13th century... She ended up visiting Justifiably Greenland's most visited area and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004, this amazing berg-strewn section of coast in Disko Bay is where huge glaciers "calve," an expression meaning that icebergs break off from the glaciers and float out into the coastal waters. This is a perfect place, if you're lucky enough to get the timing right, to witness this awe-inspiring natural spectacle, which-unlike other ice-fjords in Greenland-can be watched from land... Debatable the most interesting glacier she ever saw...
After Greenland they paid for the famous models boat to Canada – Iceland relations refer to international relations between Canada and Iceland.

The boundaries had been drawn in 1993. The creation of Nunavut resulted in the first major change to Canada's political map since the province of Newfoundland was admitted in 1949..in which she hiked all the way to Baffin Island ;With its breathtaking landscape, the warm hospitality of the Indigenous Inuit people, and the numerous opportunities for a unique holiday experience, Baffin Island is a strong draw for tourists. But it can hardly be said that it suffers from invasions of visitors, which is perfect for those who enjoy extremely remote, nature-inspired adventure travel...

Today was probably the most scenic day of the trail. Shortly into the day the CDT split from the CT, bringing me onto new trail. From there it was absolutely gorgeous.
I saw a baby moose. Thinking it looked young to be alone but not seeing Mama, I decided to hurry along.
Just before sunset I caught up with Scoops after leapfrogging all day. We split up when I decided to do an alternate to go through “The Window,” a break in the rocks you could see for miles. It looked too cool to skip. I had read it was an easy traverse. I must have done it wrong because it was not what I would call easy. I reached The Window at sunset, and it was stunning. The downside was wandering back down to the trail in the dark and then beginning a long descent without a flat spot for camping for way too long.
Finally I found a flat meadow with a neighbor, a German (?) girl I hadn’t met before. I was hangry and tired, so I didn’t chat too much. Frost formed on my tent almost immediately and I geared up with my cold weather routine for a freezing night.
Gambling - Gambling - History: Gambling is one of mankind’s oldest activities, as evidenced by writings and equipment found in tombs and other places. It was regulated, which as a rule meant severely curtailed, in the laws of ancient China and Rome as well as in the Jewish Talmud and by Islam and Buddhism, and in ancient Egypt inveterate gamblers could be sentenced to forced labour in the. Where did the word gambling originated. The Earliest Evidence of Gambling. While it is almost certain that some forms of betting have been taking place since the dawn of human history, the earliest concrete evidence comes from Ancient China where tiles were unearthed which appeared to have been used for a rudimentary game of chance. Why Does September Come From The Word “Seven”? For many, the month of September signals the end of summer, the beginning of autumn, and the start of a new school year. With respect to the calendar, September marks the beginning of the series of months named after their numerical position in the year. Riverboats and frontier towns sprung up in the new states of America with legal and illegal gambling dens that made many a legend. And although things calmed down a bit after Prohibition which drove drinking and gambling underground, things didn’t stay that way for long. In 1931, Nevada legalized gambling, and Las Vegas was born. Gambol comes from the Middle French word: Gambade. So now you know! It comes from the same roots as Games and Gaming. But you probably guessed that.
