Naturally Curious Mundy Park by Lena UmezawaVancouver, British Columbia, CA
Mundy Park is a 178 hectare park and habitat in a suburb of Vancouver, British Columbia. Its temperate rainforest is home to a variety of plants, trees, and creatures, big and small. Over the years, I've enjoyed visiting this park to jog the Perimeter Trail -- nature inspires creativity.
Historic Lincoln Square, Chicago, Illinois by Kate OLearyChicago, IL, USA
This is my neighborhood and I love it here.
It's kind of got a European influence with a large German influence. I wanted to share the things I like to do and the unique feature in this little neighborhood.

The North American Monsoon by James OrndorfDurango, CO, US
The 2016 Monsoon has officially begun!
The North American Monsoon, otherwise known as the Mexican Monsoon or the Arizona Monsoon, is a pronounced weather pattern change over the Southwestern United States. It generally starts in early July and continues through mid-September.
This seasonal pattern change brings moisture up from the Gulfs of California and Mexico. This departure from the normal west to east flow decreases rain on the Great Plains and increases rain on the east coast. But most importantly, it brings the rains that bring the mountains and the deserts of the Southwest to life.
