北极之王 Kings of the north

北极熊周

陆地上最大的食肉动物在冰冷的北方漫游。像这样的北极熊一生中大部分时间都在海冰上度过,而不是在陆地上,它们会跟踪自己最喜欢的猎物:海豹。北极熊极易御寒,特别适合在冰上生活,因此它们特别容易受到全球变暖的影响。他们的困境是北极熊周的焦点,每年11月的第一周,北极熊周将关注这些生活在大多数人看不见的地方的动物。

北极熊生活在格陵兰挪威俄罗斯阿拉斯加和加拿大的部分地区。加拿大的大多数北极熊生活在广阔的哈德逊湾附近,在这里可以看到海豹三角洲附近。随着夏季的结束,几个月来一直生活在脂肪储备区的饥饿熊聚集在哈德逊湾沿岸,等待结冰,以便它们能够重新开始捕猎。由于气候变化,夏季的无冰期变长了,缩短了熊的狩猎季节,使人类与熊相遇的可能性更大。虽然后者对熊观察者来说似乎是个好消息,但这些海兽最好从远处观看。

Polar Bear Week

The largest carnivore on land roams the icy north. Polar bears like this one spend much of their lives on sea ice rather than terra firma, stalking their favorite prey: seals. Superbly insulated against the cold, polar bears are uniquely suited for life on the ice—so they're especially vulnerable to a warming planet. Their plight is the focus of Polar Bear Week, observed the first week of every November, bringing attention to these creatures who live far out of sight of most humans.

Polar bears live in portions of Greenland, Norway, Russia, Alaska, and Canada. Most of Canada's polar bears live near the vast Hudson Bay, seen here near the delta of the Seal River. As summer ends, hungry bears who have been living on fat reserves for months gather on the shores of Hudson Bay, waiting for ice to form so they can return to the hunt. Due to climate change, the ice-free period of summer has grown longer, cutting short the bears' hunting season and making human-bear encounters more likely. And while the latter may seem like good news for bear-watchers, these maritime beasts are best viewed from afar.

一次偏远的旅途 A very remote journey

Trans-Taiga Road, Quebec

If you want to challenge your physical fitness on the go, or if you want to test your mental strength for a lonely journey. Consider coming to Trans-Taiga Road: a very remote journey in Canada. Trans-Taiga Road was built to access a series of hydroelectric dams in Quebec’s north country, it sees very few motorists and almost no tourists.

The Trans Taiga is the northernmost road in eastern North America, crossing some of the continent’s most isolated landscape stretches. The Trans-Taiga Road branches off from the James Bay Road (French: Route de la Baie James) at kilometer 544. It was built as an access road to the hydroelectric generating stations of Hydro-Québec along the La Grande River and Caniapiscau River.

For most of it, you’ll be treated to expansive views of low hills carpeted in spruce trees. There aren’t too many landmarks to delineate this lengthy road, though, with the most prominent ones being Robert-Bourassa Reservoir at mile 39 and Caniapiscau Reservoir at mile 362.

横贯泰加路,魁北克

如果你想在旅途中挑战你的体能,或者你想在孤独的旅途中测试你的精神力量。考虑来Trans Taiga路:加拿大的一次非常遥远的旅行。横贯泰加公路是为了连接魁北克北部的一系列水电站而修建的,公路上很少有汽车司机,几乎没有游客。

横贯泰加是北美洲东部最北端的公路,穿过该大陆一些最孤立的景观延伸。跨泰加公路在544公里处从詹姆斯公路(法语:Route de la Baie James)分出。该公路修建为通往魁北克水电站沿拉格兰德和卡尼阿皮斯卡河的水电站的通道。

在大部分时间里,你会看到覆盖着云杉的低的广阔景色。然而,没有太多的地标来描绘这条漫长的道路,其中最突出的是39英里处的罗伯特·布拉萨水库和362英里处的卡尼亚皮斯库水库。

奔腾不息的自然力量 Small but mighty

Athabasca Falls in Jasper National Park

Athabasca Falls is one of the most striking waterfalls on the Icefields Parkway, and a visit to Jasper National Park in Alberta wouldn't be complete without it. Despite its low height of just 23 meters, the incredible volume and intensity of the falls make it a renowned gem of the Canadian Rockies. The falls are fed with pristine water flowing from the Columbia Icefield glaciers and snowmelt from neighboring mountains. Mount Fryatt makes for the perfect backdrop with its horn-shaped summit; a result of being carved and sculpted by glaciers from all angles over the years. Mount Fryatt consists of sedimentary rocks deposited from the Precambrian to Jurassic eras.

贾斯珀国家公园阿萨巴斯卡瀑布

阿萨巴斯卡瀑布是冰原公园路上最引人注目的瀑布之一,没有它,参观亚伯达省的贾斯珀国家公园就不算完整。尽管它的低高度只有23米,但令人难以置信的瀑布体积和强度使它成为加拿大落基山脉著名的宝石。这些瀑布由哥伦比亚冰原冰川流出的纯净水和邻近山脉的融补给。弗赖亚特以其喇叭形的山顶成为完美的背景;这是多年来冰川从各个角度雕刻的结果。Fryatt山由前寒武纪至侏罗纪沉积岩组成。

“瀑布之城”中的小瀑布 Cascade in the 'City of Waterfalls'

Albion Falls, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

The spectacular Albion Falls is just one of more than 130 waterfalls that give the city of Hamilton in Ontario, Canada, its sobriquet: Waterfall Capital of the World. The city eagerly welcomes visitors to share in its natural beauty, and there are hiking and biking trails around the waterfalls as well as guided tours. On the edge of Lake Ontario, Hamilton lies 54 miles northwest of Niagara.

As you can see here, Albion Falls is a stepped waterfall with cascading flows that fan out spectacularly. It's 62 feet high (and almost as wide), and there are two viewing platforms at the top for jaw-dropping photo ops. Just obey the signs and watch your footing: There is some fencing, but the ground can be unstable near the cliff edges.

加拿大安大略省汉密尔顿阿尔比恩瀑布

壮观的阿尔比恩瀑布只是加拿大安大略省汉密尔顿市130多个瀑布中的一个,它的绰号是:世界瀑布之都。该市热切欢迎游客分享其自然美景,瀑布周围有徒步旅行和骑自行车的小径,还有导游。汉密尔顿位于安大略边缘,尼亚加拉西北54英里处。

正如你在这里看到的,阿尔比恩瀑布是一个阶梯式瀑布,层叠的水流以惊人的扇形散开。它高62英尺(几乎和它一样宽),顶部有两个观景台,用于拍摄令人瞠目结舌的照片。只要遵守指示牌并注意脚下:有一些围栏,但悬崖边缘附近的地面可能不稳定。

一张来自春天的快照 A snapshot of Spring

Laburnum trees and purple alliums

This snapshot of Spring is from VanDusen Botanical Garden located in Vancouver, British Columbia. Approximately 7,500 species and varieties of plants can be spotted here. Visitors are encouraged to take self-guided tours which are updated almost every month, as new plants take centre stage. Pictured here are the laburnum trees in full bloom. Despite requiring little maintenance, these trees can grow fast, surpassing close to 40 centimeters of growth each year. Given their gorgeous golden arch and walkways, laburnums easily draw visitors to VanDusen Botanical Gardens this time of the year. And if you miss their narrow period of full bloom, you could likely take a stroll through the Rhododendron Walk or take in the numerous flowers in vibrant colors spread across the garden.

唇形树和紫色葱

这张春天的快照来自不列颠哥伦比亚省温哥华的范杜森植物园。这里可以看到大约7500种植物。随着新工厂占据中心舞台,游客们被鼓励参加几乎每个月都会更新的自助游。图中是盛开的唇瓣树。尽管几乎不需要维护,但这些树木生长速度很快,每年的生长量超过近40厘米。由于其华丽的金色拱门和人行道,每年的这个时候,拉布努姆很容易吸引游客来到范杜森植物园。如果你错过了杜鹃花盛开的短暂时期,你很可能会在杜鹃花道上漫步,或者欣赏花园里铺开的无数色彩鲜艳的花朵。
