Hello Twitter Friends,
Quick Poll: Did you go hiking or nature walks in the northeast or upper Midwest of the U.S. this summer? #nature #hiking #ph260720
If you answered yes, did you happen to meet my friend, Ticky? And did you know that ticks (specifically blacklegged ticks) are the main transmitters for Lyme Disease? #ticky #lymedisease #ph260720
Lyme Disease is caused primarily by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi. Lyme disease can be very unpredictable in the symptoms it can cause. Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a skin rash that can look like a bulls eye or “target” rash. #lymedisease #ph260720

1. Firefighters in California are in a desperate battle to defend giant sequoias

Like glaciers or coral reefs, it is another example where climate change threatens some of the most beautiful sights on our planet.

2. The changing climate changes the planet, including some of the most beautiful sights that you may see in your lives.

From the magnificent glaciers in the mountains to the coral reefs in the oceans, we destroy the most iconic examples of nature.

3. I remember how amazed I was in the 1990s when seeing some of these enormous trees in California.

Standing on the forest floor and looking up, they seemed to grow into infinity.

Braşov's train station on an early morning. Time for another short #railway trip! This time I'm on the IR366, which starts in Braşov, loops through Romania via Miercurea Ciuc, Dej and Cluj to Oradea, where it crosses into Hungary and trundles on to Budapest.
This area is called #Székely Land, and is where most of the Hungarian minority in Romania lives. In fact, in many places here they might even consist up to a full 100% of the local population. In Harghita province where I'm heading to, 85% of the population is Hungarian.
I'm getting off at Băile Tușnad, or Tusnádfürdő as it is called by the Hungarian majority of this small spa town. It's also officially #Romania's smallest town ("oraş"), having only 1,641 inhabitants!

Lately, I have been very disturbed with the whole #climatecrisis. Every day some new naturally unnatural calamity looms over our head.
The ice caps are turning in cold rocks and I end up in a rabbit hole feeling helpless.

It just sucks to imagine a #future where the only way people can enjoy nature as you and I did via #hiking etc is to read blogs and watch videos.
That sucks on so many levels.
2/n
And when I think about the reasons for this situation. I can't seem to go any further but to pin it on #consumption.
Not just fashion or lifestyle consumption. But any damn product.
From the smallest sewing pin to the giant #spaceships.

Tamsui-Kavalan Trails (Thread)

This has been a year in the making. A year of walking, exploring, writing, learning about and falling further in love with this beautiful land that I am lucky to call home. I hope my writing helps others to enjoy these trails as much as I have. ImageImageImageImage
Part 1 - PINGXI TOU to WAI’AO

👉 bit.ly/3k864DM 👈

This was the first section of the Tamsui Kavalan Trails that I walked and my word it’s a good one to get you hooked. Whether you like streams, forests, mountains or beaches you’ll find something to enjoy here. ImageImageImageImage
Part 2 - RUIFANG(ish) to FULONG via JIUFEN

👉 bit.ly/3kw3ZSi 👈

This section of the TKT is nothing if not varied. It takes you through the old mining/tourist town of Jiufen, past long abandoned houses and guard posts, then finishes in the relaxed beach town of Fulong. ImageImageImageImage

2/ Day 1:#chouwen river.

The drive is amazing through the mountains. The 45 min #Hike through forest to get to the river is rewarding.

The whole area is the birthplace of the #legend of Adonis & Astarte.

@Jabal_Moussa thank you for taking care of this piece of heaven. ImageImage
3/ Day 1: @EhdenHorsh

The beautiful mountainous city of Ehden offered wonderful scenic views and elaborate trails through pine trees.

Super diverse ecosystem of fauna and flora.

ஆகச்ட்டு இரண்டாவது வாரம் தொடங்கி செப்டம்பர் இரண்டாவது வாரம் முடிய ஒருமாத தனிமைப் பயணம் #AT_HIKE_2020 திட்டமிட்டுள்ளேன். #Covid_19 காலத்தில் மூன்று மாநிலங்களின் காடுகள் வழியே தனிப்பயணம். Planning is challenging than actual hike.

தனிமைப் பயணங்கள் காடுகள் கரடிகள் பாம்புகள் கயோட்டிகள்(coyote)புதிய மனிதர்கள் என்று அது ஒரு தனி உலகம்

நினைத்தாலே ஒருவித வெறுமையும் ,பயமும் மிகிழ்ச்சியும் ஒருசேர வந்துபோகும் திகல்😁

Thread: I spent a year digging into a story about a hiker who was found dead in a tent in Florida for @adventurevida thanks to editors @jeffmoag and @stevecasimiro. The mystery has kept me awake many nights, scouring the web. Here's how my story begins. Image
"Sometimes I imagine him falling through space, drifting like dust from dead stars in the vast nowhere above us. I see him take shape in the soft light of a forest before dawn. First a fog, then ephemeral form, then living flesh."
Brief synopsis: he was found dead in tent in July 2018. Weighed 83 pounds. No phone. No wallet. No ID. $3,600 in cash on him, along with notebooks filled with computer code. @CollierSheriff @kristine_gill put out a composite and people immediately recognize the man.

@SiNiel1 Sekali-kalinya ke Putussibau saat KKN '94 dulu. Masuk dusun keluar dusun jalan kaki manjat gunung, bukit berlumut, masuk hutan keluar hutan. Penduduk masih menyebar dipelosok. 9 dusun yg kita sambangi utk baksos selama 2 bulan.
@SiNiel1 Pengalaman berharga bisa KKN 2 bulan belajar secara langsung tentang kehidupan warga asli dayak di desa Belikai, kecamatan Seberuang, Putussibau.

Teman mahasiswa banyak yg menghindari lokasi ini saking jauhnya. Kurleb 2 hari dg bus baru tiba dilokasi.
@SiNiel1 Pos KKN dipinggir jalan, tidak ada listrik, genset hanya sampai jam 9 malam. Penerangan berikutnya dg lampu badai minyak tanah.

Masak dengan kayu bakar, mandi/mck di kali.

Rumah warga berpencar, jaraknya kiloan meter.

Ini baru di desanya.

About climbing my 1st 14er, campaigning for @PeteButtigieg at 14,000ft, finding community with strangers, an electrifying moment, and the biggest surprise of my life!
We arrived at the #MtEvans trailhead around 7:30am, the peak was lost in fast moving clouds. #14er
Mt Evans magnets & shirts don't lie, the GOATS! So awesome.
We had goats greet us at the trailhead, we kept our distance &
ogled them with delight. #14ers
#OhWhataBeautifulMorning
#TeamPete, I brought my @playmobil #minime & a #Pete2020 banner for some inspiring photos exploring #AmericatheBeautiful.
#SummitLake parking lot, with another 2,00-odd ft to ascend to the peak of #MtEvans, a #14er that I can see from my house, SE of Denver!

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
#RandomThoughts
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH
