考伊琴谷,温哥华岛

欢迎来到加拿大不列颠哥伦比亚省温哥华岛的考伊琴山谷。该山谷位于温哥华岛南部,其艺术和历史在普雷沃斯特山等郁郁青山中回荡。作为不列颠哥伦比亚省最大的原住民部落考伊琴部落的政府所在地,邓肯市拥有令人咋舌的原住民艺术收藏品,其中就包括了复杂的雕刻绘画作品。在这里,您一定要参观图腾柱收藏馆,这些高耸的图腾柱是原住民历史的象征,描绘了原住民祖先的传说和部族的族徽。

考伊琴山谷还因其繁荣的葡萄酒业、苹果酒业和酿酒厂而闻名。该地区温和的气候和肥沃的土壤为葡萄园和果园创造了理想的条件。游客们可以探索这些葡萄园,品尝当地的佳酿。在离开之前,您可能还想买一件由考伊琴部落成员编织的毛衣。

加拿大式的小憩和放松 A little Canadian rest and relaxation

路易斯湖,班夫国家公园阿尔伯塔

闪烁着海蓝色芒的路易斯湖坐落在阿尔伯塔省班夫国家公园的加拿大落基山脉中,原住民纳科达人将该湖称为“Ho-run-num-nay”,意为“小鱼之湖”。后来,移民们以英国王室的路易斯公主的名字为这个冰川湖以及一座毗邻的小镇命名。那座小镇的海拔高达5200英尺,是加拿大海拔最高的小镇。游客们一年四季都可以通过加拿大高速公路到达路易斯湖,参加这里的夏季徒步旅行和滑雪等活动。

Lake Louise, Banff National Park, Alberta

Glimmering in aquamarine tones, Lake Louise rests amid the Canadian Rockies in Alberta's Banff National Park. The Indigenous Nakoda people refer to the lake as Ho-run-num-nay, meaning 'lake of the little fishes.' It was later renamed by settlers, inspired by Britain's Princess Louise, whose husband was governor general of Canada between 1878 and 1883. The adjoining hamlet is also called Lake Louise and, at an elevation of almost 5,200 feet, is Canada's highest community.

This glacial lake is accessible throughout the year via the Trans-Canada Highway, and visitors enjoy hiking in the summer, skiing in the winter, and incredible mountain views at any time of the year.

璀璨

明尼汪卡湖,阿尔伯塔

明尼汪卡湖的星空已经被人类欣赏了几个世纪。纳科达人敬畏湖水,因为他们相信湖中住着神灵,他们满怀敬意地在湖中捕鱼并沿着湖岸狩猎。湖的名字来源于印第安斯通尼族,意思是“水之精灵”。随着加拿大落基山脉旅游业的发展,人们在湖岸边建立了一个定居点。然而,为了下游的水力发电厂保留水源,该湖在1895年和1912年两度筑起了水坝,明尼汪卡的定居点也随之被淹没,只能靠潜水进入。如今,这个冰川湖是班夫国家公园的第二大湖,全长约21公里。

冬日私语

阿西尼博因山省级公园,不列颠哥伦比亚省

阿西尼博因山坐落在不列颠哥伦比亚省的原始荒野中,与周围的省级公园形成了一个迷人的“高山仙境”。图中这座雄伟的山峰又被称作“落基山脉的马特洪峰”,其海拔高达3618米,以其粗犷雄伟的气势而备受瞩目。“阿西尼博因”这个名字是为了向曾经居住在这里的原住民阿西尼博因人致敬。据悉,阿西尼博因山省级公园是受保护区域,其占地面积超3.9万公顷,为探险者们提供了迷人壮丽景观。在这片荒野上,你还能邂逅不少野生动物,比如灰熊、美洲狮、山羊等。此外,网状般的小径遍布园区,也为游客们提供了便利。沿着小径行走,你可以在公园里徒步旅行、滑雪、露营。在大山的庇护下,这座公园体现了加拿大落基山脉中心地带的自然原始之美的精髓。

世界河川日

如果你是一个喜欢大自然的环保倡导者,喜欢听河流的轰鸣声,那么,今天的世界河川日一定不要错过。继2005年至2015年联合国“生命之水”
国际行动十年之后,加拿大保育生物学家马克·安杰洛(Mark
Angelo)提出了一项保护河流的全球性活动。自2005年起,联合国将每年9月的第四个星期日定为世界河川日,旨在关注和保护河流的环境、文化及生态。

今天图片的主角,弗雷泽河,是不列颠哥伦比亚省最长的河流,也是加拿大第11长的河流。这条河的源头位于落基山脉,蜿蜒穿越超过854英里的坡地和平原,最后汇入温哥华以南的乔治亚海峡

World Rivers Day

If you are a nature enthusiast, or simply enjoy listening to the sound of rumbling rivers, you might like to know that today is World Rivers Day. First held in 2005 during the United Nations' 'Water for Life’ campaign, it was proposed by Canadian river conservationist Mark Angelo, who founded BC Rivers Day in western Canada in 1980. World Rivers Day is held on the fourth Sunday of September to celebrate and raise awareness of the benefits that rivers provide to people and the planet.

The star of today's image, the Fraser River, is the longest river in British Columbia and the 11th longest in Canada. The stream meanders from the Rocky Mountains, traveling more than 850 miles over slopes and flatlands before it merges with the Strait of Georgia, just south of Vancouver.

自内而外的彩 Glowing from within

加拿大的发现日

发现日是加拿大育空地区的一个年度节日,用来纪念1896年在富矿溪发现金矿,这个发现开启了克朗代克淘金热,进而推动了育空领地的建立。淘金热吸引了数以千计的淘金者来此寻找财富,推动了重大的经济和社会变革。

发现日是一个纪念和回顾育空地区丰富的遗产、历史和自然资源的好机会,我们今天在照片中看到的美丽的翡翠湖就是其中之一。发现日也是一个用来纪念参与了克朗代克淘金热的淘金者们的冒险精神和坚毅品格的日子。整个育空地区会在这天举办各式节庆活动,包括游行、历史情景重现、淘金比赛、演唱会等等。政府办公室、学校和很多商业机构也会在这一天关闭,以便居民们可以参与到节日活动中来。

Discovery Day in Yukon, Canada

It's Discovery Day in Yukon, Canada, a day to commemorate the 1896 discovery of gold at Bonanza Creek. The event set off the Klondike Gold Rush, which attracted thousands of prospectors to the region in search of gold, leading to significant economic and social changes. The population increase led to Yukon separating from the Northwest Territories and the formation of Yukon Territory in 1898.

Discovery Day celebrates Yukon's rich heritage, history, and natural resources—like Emerald Lake, seen in today's image, known for its deep green hues. You'll find it on the Klondike Highway, which roughly follows the route used by the prospectors more than a century ago. It is also a day to honor the spirit of adventure exhibited during the gold rush. Government offices, schools, and many businesses close to allow people to participate in the festivities, including parades, historical reenactments, gold panning competitions, and concerts.

罕肯瀑布,威尔斯格雷省立公园

罕肯瀑布 (Helmcken Falls) 坐落在威尔斯格雷省立公园 (Wells Gray Province Park) 内,是一处令人惊叹的自然奇观。 威尔斯格雷省立公园就是为了保护这座优美的瀑布而建立的。为政府工作的土地测量员罗伯特·亨利·李发现了这处大自然带给我们的天然珍宝。这座雄伟的瀑布是加拿大第五高的瀑布,从陡峭的大约有141米的高度火山悬崖上倾泻而下,释放出飘逸的气,在阳下翩翩起舞,也形成了彩虹与瀑布相互映衬的绝美景观。

草原国家公园,加拿大

萨斯喀彻温省位于加拿大中心地带,是加拿大仅有的两个内陆省份之一。

该公园有着丰富的历史和文化,曾经是黑脚人以及苏族人的家园,也是加拿大西部首次发现恐龙的地方。黑脚人是一个北美土著群体,19世纪初他们的势力达到鼎盛时期,疆土辽阔,北起萨斯喀彻温,南达密苏里源头。

Happy Independence Day!

Break out the BBQ and unfurl your flags, Independence Day is here! Founding Father John Adams wrote to his wife, Abigail, that he believed the holiday would be celebrated with parades, sports, shows, and illuminations. After 247 years, Americans are keeping those traditions alive, though not on the date that Adams anticipated. The Second Continental Congress voted to approve the independence of the United States of America on July 2, 1776, but formally adopted the Declaration of Independence on July 4. That date, enshrined on the Declaration document, became the one we observe today. If you're looking for a grand way to celebrate, journey to New York City for views of their annual fireworks show and the Empire State Building lit up to match in red, white, and blue.

工程学杰作 A masterpiece of engineering

魁北克大桥,加拿大

魁北克大桥是一座跨越圣劳伦斯河下游的公路铁路、行人三用桥,连接加拿大魁北克省的桑特富瓦和莱维斯。魁北克大桥是一个工程学杰作,两座桥墩之间有549米长的主跨。魁北克大桥是世界上最长的悬臂桥,比苏格兰的福斯桥还长了27米。

1907年8月29日,这座桥在建设过程中垮塌了。事故之后,政府接手了建设工程。1913年,大桥的建设重启。新的设计增加了大桥主要应力结构的横截面面积,几乎是之前的2倍。但是悲剧重演了。在经历了两次悲剧后,魁北克大桥最终在1917年完工通车。

Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

This stunning structure is the stone pavilion housing the massive Korean Bell of Friendship in Los Angeles, a city with a large Korean American population. It's ringing in Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, which starts today. The month was chosen in recognition of the first documented arrival of Japanese immigrants, on May 7, 1843, and the completion of the transcontinental railroad by more than 20,000 Asian immigrants on May 10, 1869.

Back to that intricately decorated bronze bell. It was a gift to the city from South Korea to mark the US bicentennial in 1976 and is modeled on the largest bell cast in Korean history, the Divine Bell of King Seongdeok, made in 771. Both versions are among the largest bells in the world.
