Canyon de Chelly long served as a home for Navajo people before it was invaded by forces led by future New Mexico governor Lt. Antonio Narbona in 1805. In 1863 Col. Kit Carson sent troops to either end of the canyon to defeat the Navajo population within. The resulting devastation led to the surrender of the Navajos and their removal to Bosque Redondo, New Mexico.[7]Canyon de Chelly National Monument (/dəˈʃeɪ/ də·shā′) was established on April 1, 1931 as a unit of the National Park Service. It is located in northeastern Arizona within the boundaries of the Navajo Nation. Reflecting one of the longest continuously inhabited landscapes of North America, it preserves ruins of the early indigenous tribes that lived in the area, including the Ancient Pueblo Peoples (also called Anasazi) and Navajo. The monument covers 83,840 acres (131.0 sq mi; 339.3 km2) and encompasses the floors and rims of the three major canyons: de Chelly, del Muerto, and Monument. These canyons were cut by streams with headwaters in the Chuska mountains just to the east of the monument. None of the land is federally owned.[5] In 2009 Canyon de Chelly National Monument was recognized as one of the most-visited national monuments in the United States.[6]

With the outbreak of frigid air across much of North America, it seemed like a good time for some warmth in this week’s Cliche Saturday image. Here’s a shot of a water lily taken just before sunset on a late September evening at Chicago Botanic Garden.

 

HCS!

Lake Ontario is one of the five Great Lakes of North America. It is bounded on the north and southwest by the Canadian province of Ontario, and on the south and east by the American state of New York. Ontario, Canada's most populous province, was named for the lake. In the Wyandot (Huron) language, ontarío means “Lake of Shining Waters”. It is the last in the Great Lakes chain and serves as the outlet to the Atlantic Ocean via the St. Lawrence River

We spent the weekend in Ashville NC and drove back home to Gastonia NC on the Blue Ridge Parkway. A wonderful drive along Americas longest linear park 469 miles (755 km) and part of the Appalachian Mountains. The upper elevations were past their prime color, cool and very windy, but I expected that and they were still beautiful. The best color was about 3,000 feet on the mountain road like the image above. This road is a National Treasure, beautifully maintained and well worth the time for the traveler to North Carolina and Virginia. There are a few brilliant small little towns alone the road, be sure and stop a while. :-)

Lilium columbianum is a lily native to western North America. It is also known as the Columbia lily or tiger lily.

A little change from all the winter captures yet to come ;-). Taken in 2015 and processed only recently. The birds have flown in from Flypaper. Just got back from the short "winter break" and will start catching up.

 

Hope you all had a peaceful week and will hang on in there until the weekend!

 

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to view, possibly commenting or faving. Very much appreciated.

Last week I was out on the Eastern Plains looking for something of merit to photograph. The view of the weather out there is magnificent. I could see the storm coming and before I knew it, I was in it. It was a downpour with violent lightning and thunder. When it passed I enjoyed the sounds of silence and the moist wet air that followed. The sunset that night was a celebration of yet another wonderful day's end.

Common Tern

 

A graceful, black-and-white waterbird, the Common Tern is the most widespread Tern in North America. It can be seen plunging from the air into water to catch small fish along rivers, lakes, and oceans.

I've just returned from a week in New Orleans, so will be busy processing photos.

In the meantime here is another photo from our Canadian Rockies trip last year - sunrise at Bow Lake.

Located by Torrey, Utah, this is the largest exposed monocline, or waterpocket fold in North America, extending from Thousand Lake Mountain to Lake Powell. Method of travel was extremely difficult prior to 1962 (new road access via route 24.) The dirt road on the lower part of this shot must have been the only way to get around. This area, although beautiful, is still somewhat isolated and desolate.

The first Greek amphitheater in North America was built on this site in 1901. It was used for sporting events and theatrical performances. The tessellated pavement and stoa were added in 1909. The theatre was the site of a number of productions of Greek and Shakespearean dramas.

A mix of dedicated bike trails and cycle paths, the 5,000km La Route Verte is North America’s longest cycling network, taking in Quebec’s cities, rivers, lakes and fjords.

There wasn't much colour, this was the best there was, for the sunrise at Bow Lake, Canadian Rockies.

One of the major attractions of Yosemite National Park is Yosemite Falls, the highest measured waterfall in North America with an altitude of 739 metres in total. The falls consist of three sections: the Upper Falls, which you can see here, the Middle Cascades, hidden behind that rock and the Lower Falls, which can barely be seen on this photo. Believe me: it is not only a very beautiful place but also a highly impressive one.

 

This capture is SOOC. I did use a circular polarizer here which worked well on the colors.

 

EXPLORED: highest position #351 (August 5, 2010)

The Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus), also called the sunroot, sunchoke, earth apple or topinambour, is a species of sunflower native to eastern North America, and found from Eastern Canada and Maine west to North Dakota, and south to northern Florida and Texas.[1] It is also cultivated widely across the temperate zone for its tuber, which is used as a root vegetable.

These are 15' to 18' tall.

Hubby and I went to Gatorland yesterday on a day with beautiful weather and among the many bird we saw was this Great Egret ~

 

Great Egret ~

 

Wikipedia

 

The Great Egret (Ardea alba) also known as Common Egret, Large Egret or Great White Heron, is a large, widely distributed egret. Distributed across most of the tropical and warmer temperate regions of the world, in southern Europe it is rather localized. In North America it is more widely distributed, and it is ubiquitous across the Sun Belt of the United States and in the Neotropics. The Old World population is often referred to as the Great White Egret. This species is sometimes confused with the Great White Heron of the Caribbean, which is a white morph of the closely related Great Blue Heron (A. herodias).

 

The deep green patch between the eye and the bill only appears during breeding season. The egret's eyes are normally flat yellow; the blood-shot look is also a sign of breeding season.

The flower was in purple color but when photographed it is more like a blue color. This is the flower of the bud in my previous post.

Can you help me with the id please?

Happy Canada Day!

 

"This special holiday celebrates the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the Constitution Act, 1867 (then called the British North America Act, 1867), which united the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada. The origin of the name "Canada" comes from the expedition of explorer Jacques Cartier up the St. Lawrence River in 1535. The Iroquois pointing out the route to the village of Stadacona, the future site of Quebec City, used the word "kanata," the Huron-Iroquois word for village."

The next morning I was up early and had the rockpile to myself for a good half hour. The sunrise over Moraine Lake was stunning. It was only when a slight breeze came up that I headed down and other photographers were heading up.

Luckily for them the breeze did stop but the amazing colour I saw was quickly disappearing.
