Visit Arches and discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. This red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets.
A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
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. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.
DOINews: Upcoming Webinar: “Why Was Hurricane Sandy So Damaging? Sea-Level Rise and Geomorphic Dominance on Storm Impacts"
On Wednesday, February 26, at 3:30pm ET, Jonathan Woodruff of UMass Amherst will discuss how changes in storm climatology, relative sea level rise, and the form and behavior of shorelines have governed past changes in coastal flooding by storms in the northeast. A main point of the talk will be to highlight that rising sea level and associated shoreline change will likely become the two dominant drivers of increased periods of extreme coastal inundation, irrespective of changes in future storm climatology. To highlight this point he will present new observations of resulting sedimentation and shoreline impacts by Hurricane Sandy compared to past storm events.
