It has atrio of country stores; a cozy and delightful little hotel,nestling under the shade of a huge tree; an old woodenchurch perched on a hill, with a cemetery filled withancient tombs, where the early settlers he at rest, andan academy.

Day Trips from Las Vegas: A Guide to the Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is located in the United States of America in the State of Arizona and is a steep-sided gorge carved by the Colorado River. The Grand Canyon is 277miles long and ranges in width from 4 to 18miles and has a depth of more than a mile. The Grand Canyon is within the Grand Canyon National Park and is one of the world’s top natural attractions, reeling in a whooping five million visitors per year.

 

You can do many things at the Grand Canyon, even if you have just a few hours to explore it. You have to get out there to really be able to say you have seen the Grand Canyon. For starters and the casual sightseeing, head for the South Rim which is home to several historical buildings like the Kolb Studio, the Desert View Watchtower and the Grand Canyon Railway Depot. The Grand Canyon Skywalk is also another fantastic option for those who want to make the most out of their visit. The horse-shaped glass walkway stands at 1,200m in height above the floor of the canyon and allows you a great view into the main canyon.

 

Take a trip down to the floor of the valley by foot, mule back or by raft from upriver or take a hike throughout the Grand Canyon, a great way to see the park. Most visitors begin and end their hikes at the south rim. Long hikes await you with changes in elevation and terrain so be prepared and if you are really unsure but still want to hike nonetheless, get a professional guide to go with you to make sure your trip is a memorable one, instead of you hiking with the thought in your head swearing never to do this again.

 

For another way to see the Grand Canyon (Without much effort), Go on a Helicopter flight specially for tourists that flies over the Grand Canyon and gives you a remarkable birds eye view of this wonder. The Coconino Canyon Train is also another option for those who want a more laid-back leisurely view of the Canyon. A 90 minute train ride, it originates at the old Grand Canyon Depot and travels 24 miles throughout the landscapes of the canyon.

 

If you get hungry on your trip to the Grand Canyon, fret not for there are quite a few places to eat at from Bright Angel Restaurant and El Tovar Hotel Dining Room (think fine dining) on the South Rim and Café on the Rim and Coffee Saloon located on the North Rim.

 

Orson Johnson writes for Holiday Velvet, a website providing Las Vegas trips and rentals and USA vacation Rentals.

New York women like to make their phone calls from quiet spots

New York women like to make their phone calls from quiet spots
wonder women
Image by Ed Yourdon
This was taken on 7th Ave & We 10th St

***************

This set of photos is based on a very simple concept: walk every block of Manhattan with a camera, and see what happens. To avoid missing anything, walk both sides of the street.

That’s all there is to it …

Of course, if you wanted to be more ambitious, you could also walk the streets of Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the Bronx. But that’s more than I’m willing to commit to at this point, and I’ll leave the remaining boroughs of New York City to other, more adventurous photographers.

Oh, actually, there’s one more small detail: leave the photos alone for a month — unedited, untouched, and unviewed. By the time I actually focus on the first of these "every-block" photos, I will have taken more than 8,000 images on the nearby streets of the Upper West Side — plus another several thousand in Rome, Coney Island, and the various spots in NYC where I traditionally take photos. So I don’t expect to be emotionally attached to any of the "every-block" photos, and hope that I’ll be able to make an objective selection of the ones worth looking at.

As for the criteria that I’ve used to select the small subset of every-block photos that get uploaded to Flickr: there are three. First, I’ll upload any photo that I think is "great," and where I hope the reaction of my Flickr-friends will be, "I have no idea when or where that photo was taken, but it’s really a terrific picture!"

A second criterion has to do with place, and the third involves time. I’m hoping that I’ll take some photos that clearly say, "This is New York!" to anyone who looks at it. Obviously, certain landscape icons like the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty would satisfy that criterion; but I’m hoping that I’ll find other, more unexpected examples. I hope that I’ll be able to take some shots that will make a "local" viewer say, "Well, even if that’s not recognizable to someone from another part of the country, or another part of the world, I know that that’s New York!" And there might be some photos where a "non-local" viewer might say, "I had no idea that there was anyplace in New York City that was so interesting/beautiful/ugly/spectacular."

As for the sense of time: I remember wandering around my neighborhood in 2005, photographing various shops, stores, restaurants, and business establishments — and then casually looking at the photos about five years later, and being stunned by how much had changed. Little by little, store by store, day by day, things change … and when you’ve been around as long as I have, it’s even more amazing to go back and look at the photos you took thirty or forty years ago, and ask yourself, "Was it really like that back then? Seriously, did people really wear bell-bottom jeans?"

So, with the expectation that I’ll be looking at these every-block photos five or ten years from now (and maybe you will be, too), I’m going to be doing my best to capture scenes that convey the sense that they were taken in the year 2013 … or at least sometime in the decade of the 2010’s (I have no idea what we’re calling this decade yet). Or maybe they’ll just say to us, "This is what it was like a dozen years after 9-11".

Movie posters are a trivial example of such a time-specific image; I’ve already taken a bunch, and I don’t know if I’ll ultimately decide that they’re worth uploading. Women’s fashion/styles are another obvious example of a time-specific phenomenon; and even though I’m definitely not a fashion expert, I suspected that I’ll be able to look at some images ten years from now and mutter to myself, "Did we really wear shirts like that? Did women really wear those weird skirts that are short in the front, and long in the back? Did everyone in New York have a tattoo?"

Another example: I’m fascinated by the interactions that people have with their cellphones out on the street. It seems that everyone has one, which certainly wasn’t true a decade ago; and it seems that everyone walks down the street with their eyes and their entire conscious attention riveted on this little box-like gadget, utterly oblivious about anything else that might be going on (among other things, that makes it very easy for me to photograph them without their even noticing, particularly if they’ve also got earphones so they can listen to music or carry on a phone conversation). But I can’t help wondering whether this kind of social behavior will seem bizarre a decade from now … especially if our cellphones have become so miniaturized that they’re incorporated into the glasses we wear, or implanted directly into our eyeballs.

Oh, one last thing: I’ve created a customized Google Map to show the precise details of each day’s photo-walk. I’ll be updating it each day, and the most recent part of my every-block journey will be marked in red, to differentiate it from all of the older segments of the journey, which will be shown in blue. You can see the map, and peek at it each day to see where I’ve been, by clicking on this link

URL link to Ed’s every-block progress through Manhattan

If you have any suggestions about places that I should definitely visit to get some good photos, or if you’d like me to photograph you in your little corner of New York City, please let me know. You can send me a Flickr-mail message, or you can email me directly at ed-at-yourdon-dot-com

Stay tuned as the photo-walk continues, block by block …

Grand Canyon Tours from Las Vegas

The city of Las Vegas is the main tourist center located near Arizona and California boundaries. It attracts thousands of visitors yearly for its fabulous casinos and of course, the Grand Canyon. The canyon is a gorge of the Colorado River located in the northwest Arizona. This is known as a natural wonder of the world and it is approximately 1.6 kilometer deep, around 6.4-29 kilometer wide and 349 kilometer long. It was said that around 1908 when the United States government declared the canyon a national monument and afterwards assigned a huge area as the Grand Canyon National Park.   

Today, there are a few Grand Canyon tours from Las Vegas offered giving different ways of transportation. Some of the available transportation means include the luxury travel buses or through air-conditioned six passengers VIP choppers having huge windows to see the spectacular views. Tourist buses provide pick and drop service for many tourists going to the canyon. These buses are safety and comfortable because they are complete with rest room, airline seats and huge windows to witness the spectacular views outside. They also stop at exclusive destinations for one-of-a-kind sceneries from the South Rim of the canyon. These tours as well offer free buffet lunch at one of the superb restaurants in the Grand Canyon. Contrary to bus tours, the helicopter tours are known to be adventurous and quick. Riding on a helicopter tour will give tourists the opportunity to see the cowboy adventures while admiring the amazing sceneries of the Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, Ice Berg Canyon and the Colorado plateau on top. Helicopter tours offer the superb energetic cowboy experience because the cowboys take tourists by horse drown wagons going through the ranch to enjoy the western exotic foods and live entertainments.

Tourists can also avail numerous special discounts on last minute winter bookings of the Grand Canyon tours from Las Vegas, in particular for helicopter tours. People who had experienced these tours truly consider it as a once in a lifetime encounter.

If you want to make the most of your Grand Canyon Tours From Las vegas, we can offer the most comfortable trip for you and your family! Grand Canyon Air Tours is another way to feel the excitement and having a great journey in Las Vegas.
