Out for a hike today and visited the deadliest aviation disaster in Canadian history. It happen in 1985 after a US military plane with 248 troops and 8 crew members were coming home from a peace mission in Cairo Egypt. To this day there is still speculation that the plane had blown up after leaving the runway in gander. There were no survivors on board, may you all rest peacefully #aviation #history #canada #egypt #usa #planes #mystery #hiking #outdoors #nature #news

For all of you who wonder why I am the way I am, from mindset to individuals esthetic, it’s because of my hometown of #NewOrleans . The culture is much deeper than, #BourbonSt #MardiGras and #Partying there is a constant song left by our ancestors that you can hear in the street songs and in our dialect. It’s humbling and exciting to see a tiny bit of our culture displayed here in #Brooklyn . If you or anyone you know would like to discover a deeper side of New Orleans come out to the @mocada_museum tonight 7-10 to hear from artist @langstonallston and#BigChief !!!. . #NewOrleans . #Culture . #BlackIndians . #SuperSunday . #History . #MocAda

We headed out today within the Pueblo to have lunch and find some Mayan Ruins we read about. The ruins we found are blocked by lots of brush and looks like a snake haven. The ruins are from the Post Classic Period of Mayan History between 1200 and 1600 AD. We are loving the history around here... . . . #mayanruins #akumalpueblo #pueblolife #mexico #travellingfamily #nomadfamily #lovetravel #travel #history #mayanhistory #pueblo #familybikeride
I’ve heard finding oddly shaped tree like this could possibly old Indian trail markers, or just a natural formation 🤷‍♂️ what do you think? I read a while back that the land and large hill in my woods was a documented Mohegan Indian tribe traveling trail. First two photos are from my wood the last one is from google • • #mushrooms #wildmushrooms #fungi #fungus #outdoors #naturelovers #nature #newengland #fungiphotography #indian #indiantrail #indiantrailmarker #indiantrees #treemarker #mushroomhunting #naturehistory #mushroomhunter #wildlife #woods #naturephotography #mushi #fungusamongus #history #mushroomlover #mushroomspotting #mybackyard #fall #nativeamerican #mohegan #mohegantribe

Skorki to wieś w której zachował się chyba najpiękniejszy ze wszystkich w gminie parków. Należał on do rodziny Rakowieckich. Na terenie byłej posiadłości swoim urokiem zachwycają ogromne dęby. Widać pozostałość alejek prowadzących do dworu, który niestety już dziś nie istnieje. W środkowej części parku znajduje się obelisk, upamiętniający śmierć córki właściciela dworu z 1918 r.

Two norwegian volunteers from the 11th SS-Freiwilligen-Panzergrenadier-Division "Nordland". On the left is Per Kjölner (3./SS-Pz.Abt.11 "Hermann von Salza") and to the right is Thomas Hvistendahl (4./SS-Pz.Abt.11 "Hermann von Salza"). Photographed in Narva, Estonia, summer 1944. - Kjölner and Hvistendahl both served in the 11. SS-Freiwilligen-Panzergrenadier-Division “Nordland” (Panzer-Abteilung 11 “Hermann von Salza”). Kjølner first served in SS-Infanterie-Regiment ‘Germania’ of SS-Division Wiking. After graduating from Bad Tölz in 1943, he became platoon leader in “Hermann von Salza” and received the Iron Cross First Class and the Close Combat Clasp in Bronze for his actions in the Battle of Narva. After World War II, Kjølner was tried and sentenced to 5 years in prison for treason. He later took over as director of the family company in Norway. Per Kjølner is still alive today, now 97 years old! Thomas Hvistendahl got heavily wounded during the Battle of the Tannenberg Line, in 1944 and I unfortunately have no further information on his fate. 🇳🇴 ————————————————————— All copyrights belong to it’s respective owners #wehrmacht #luftwaffe #ww2 #germany #ss #history #education #original #picture #weapons #war #german #army #military #soldier #militaryhistory #blackandwhite #photograph norway #waffenss #narva

Funny how #photographers have to ‘spread their legs’ or squat down do dramatically when taking pictures. Like the 5cm lower makes all the difference.

I visit the different battle fields and absorb the stillness , peacefulness, and the beauty of nature. As well as the underlying sadness of past pains , death & destruction . Hoping we learn from those mistakes and realize this quote below before causing new ones . --- "We did not inherit the land from our fathers, we are borrowing it from our children.” -Chief Seattle -- -- - #historygeek #history #sharpsburg #antietam #naturephotography #civilwar #civilwarhistory #rememberthefallen #visitmaryland #learnhistory #civilwarmaryland #visithistoricoakpark #treemagic #civilwarbattlefield #castingshadows #md #nature_lovers #roadtripusa #buildabetterfuture #onlyinyourstate #nature_good
