Video meiner USA-Reise 2004 Es gibt Schluchten auf dieser Erde die tiefer oder enger sind - so grandios wie der Grand Canyon, so ehrfurchtgebietend, so faszinierend und so berühmt ist keine zweite. Im Nordwesten Arizonas gelegen, besteht der Grand Canyon aus einer 1800 Meter tiefen Schlucht, die eine Breite von bis zu 30 Kilometern erreicht und sich über rund 450 Kilometer Länge durch das bewaldete Kaibabplateau zieht. Geologen schätzen, daß sich das Gebiet in den vergangenen vierzig bis fünfzig Millionen Jahren herausgebildet hat. Für die europäischen Eroberer war der Canyon jahrhundertelang unbezwingbares Niemandsland. Erst 1869 erforschte Major John Wesley Powell auf einer legendären Befahrung des Colorado das Innere der großen Schlucht. Das Monument Valley ist ein Tal an der südlichen Grenze des US-Bundesstaates Utah zu Arizona. Es liegt innerhalb der Navajo Nation Reservation in der Nähe der Ortschaft Mexican Hat in Utah, wird von den Diné verwaltet und ist daher kein Nationalpark. Das Monument Valley besteht aus gewaltigen Tafelbergen aus Sandstein, die bis zu 300 m hoch über die Hochebene des Colorado Plateaus ragen. Die rötliche Farbe der Felsen kommt von dem im Stein enthaltenen Eisenoxid. Besonders stimmungsvoll wirkt der rotglühende Sandstein in der Abendsonne oder wenn sich die Silhouette der Felstürme bei Sonnenaufgang gegen den sich aufhellenden Himmel abzeichnet.

The Explore team takes you to the site of the Three Gorges Dam before it was completed and became the largest hydroelectric dam in the world - more than five times the size of the Hoover Dam. The dam's five-step system of locks raise and lower ships by as much as 371 feet, and 25 massive turbines power a city four times the size of Los Angeles. explore™ (*******explore****) is a multimedia organization that documents leaders around the world who have devoted their lives to extraordinary causes. Both educational and inspirational, explore creates a portal into the soul of humanity by championing the selfless acts of others. Distributed by TubeMogul.

Welcome To Earth. Population 0- Monday, January 21st 9pm/8pm What would happen to planet earth if the human race were to suddenly disappear forever? Would ecosystems thrive? What remnants of our industrialized world would survive? What would crumble fastest? From the ruins of ancient civilizations to present day cities devastated by natural disasters, history gives us clues to these questions and many more in the visually stunning and thought-provoking new special LIFE AFTER PEOPLE, premiering Monday, January 21st, 2008 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The History Channel®. Abandoned skyscrapers would after hundreds of years, become “vertical ecosystems” complete with birds, rodents and even plant life. A particular small animal might be responsible for bringing down the Hoover Dam hydroelectric plant. Swelled rivers, crumbling bridges and buildings, grizzly bears in California and herds of buffalo returning to the Great Western Plains: in a world without humans, these would be the visual hallmarks. Our cars would shrivel to piles of dust, our house pets would be overtaken by flourishing wildlife, and most of the records of our human story—books, photos, records—would fade quickly, leaving little record that we ever existed. Using feature film quality visual effects and top experts in the fields of engineering, botany, ecology, biology, geology, climatology, and archeology, Life After People provides an amazing visual journey through the ultimately hypothetical.

So let’s hypothetically say you’ve been in Sin City for a few days and you’re getting tired of all the themed casinos, hot nightclubs, Big ticket shows, easily accessed booze, and the opportunity to gamble your life savings away at every turn. I know, who would ever get sick of all that, right? But if you’re looking for something a bit off the beaten path, or at least a bit off the Las Vegas Boulevard Strip, I’ve got a few fun suggestions for you. First, try heading north of Vegas and checking out Fremont Street in Downtown Vegas. Some of the casinos on Fremont have been there for decades, and you can get a good sense of what the town was like before all the giant themed mega resorts started to open on the strip. And if you’re looking for something a little less casino-y, then why not head over to The Liberace museum? The only museum dedicated to the legendarily flamboyant singer, you can take marvel at his gaudy costumes, cars, and even a recreation of his bedroom. If you’re feeling like seeing a little bit of nature after spending so much time in giant manmade palaces of consumerism, then the awe inspiring Hoover Dam is only about 30 miles away from the strip, ...
