WHERE WE WALK Map Challenge. Don't get me wrong, there are many more cats and lions in Venice, but relying on my memories I have chosen to represent those that have remained in my heart. The walk illustrated on the map goes from the Accademia Galleries (near the Academy of Fine Arts where I studied) to the wonderful San Marco square, in the heart of the city.
The San Pedro River flows north out of Mexico until it hits the Gila River, then heads west dumping into the Colorado River, ultimately draining into the Pacific Ocean.
Via the Bureau of Land Management:
The San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area (NCA) contains almost 57,000 acres of public land in Cochise County, Arizona, between the international border and St. David, Arizona. Congress designated the riparian area as a Riparian National Conservation Area on November 18, 1988. Some 40 miles of the upper San Pedro River meanders through the area.
The primary purpose for the special designation is to protect and enhance the desert riparian ecosystem, a rare remnant of what was once an extensive network of similar riparian systems throughout the American Southwest.
The San Pedro River runs through the Chihuahuan Desert and Sonoran Desert in southeastern Arizona. It contains one of the most important riparian areas in the United States.
More than 80 species of mammals, two native species and several introduced species of fish, more than 40 species of amphibians and reptiles, and 100 species of breeding birds call the river home. It also provides invaluable habitat for 250 species of migrant and wintering birds and contains archaeological sites showing remnants of human occupation from 13,000 years ago.
Here is my entry for the “Where We Walk” challenge. This map shows a family hike we love along the Mist Trail in beautiful Yosemite National Park. It features some picturesque landmarks that can be enjoyed along the way and my two favorite hiking buddies make an appearance as well. I love that daddy and daughter enjoy the outdoors together!
It was my dream to make a map of Verona. I had never drawn a map and I decided to challenge myself. I loved the whole process. Here we go - my 25 min walking map for the historical center of Verona. It's impossible to show every beautiful place and building, but I choose places that I love to see every time I pass by.
The map shows the central part of Hemus Mountain over The Rose Valley - Valley of Ancient thracian heroes. Shows Historical monuments as megaliths, fortress, mounds and sacred places, mineral baths near, rivers, villages, forests and roads there, and rock clmbing objects.
Death Valley was used as a background setting for the Tatooine desert of Star Wars. Many of the shooting locations remain unchanged, and an intrepid adventurer can match parts of the park to their favorite scenes!
