I took this picture in Los Angeles, California Sciencenter. Sea urchins are typically spiny, globular animals, echinoderms in the class Echinoidea. About 950 species live on the seabed, inhabiting all oceans and depth zones from the intertidal to 5,000 metres (16,000 ft; 2,700 fathoms). Their tests (hard shells) are round and spiny, typically from 3 to 10 cm (1 to 4 in) across. Sea urchins move slowly, crawling with their tube feet, and sometimes pushing themselves with their spines. They feed primarily on algae but also eat slow-moving or sessile animals. Their predators include sea otters, starfish, wolf eels, and triggerfish.
Pumpkins Art is a exhibition of Yayoi Kusama of Pumpkins at the Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, Texas. Yayoi has an eternal love for pumpkins. This exhibition was inside the closed room, where there were many pumpkins exposed in an entire room covered with mirrors reflecting the pampkins. The time was controlled only 45 seconds for each person inside the room. The time was super short, not giving to admire the art and take photos at the same time. It was like entering the room and leaving the room. I was really frustrated because we were not warned of the time we would be inside the room .... it was a big surprise.
Mono Lake is a large, shallow saline soda lake in Mono County, California, formed at least 760,000 years ago as a terminal lake in an endorheic basin. The lack of an outlet causes high levels of salts to accumulate in the lake. These salts also make the lake water alkaline. This desert lake has an unusually productive ecosystem based on brine shrimp that thrive in its waters, and provides critical habitat for two million annual migratory birds that feed on the shrimp and alkali flies.
First Place on Antelope Valley Fair and Alfalfa Festival, Lancaster, California. Rising Up is from Cedar Breaks National Monument in the South of Utah, close the Brian Head City. Beautiful!
The eroded rock of the amphitheater is more eroded, but otherwise similar to formations at Bryce Canyon National Park, Red Canyon in Dixie National Forest and select areas of Cedar Mountain (SR-14). Because of its elevation, snow often makes parts of the park inaccessible to vehicles from October through May.

Just to be clear, no body whom ever travelled to Adamawa will ever give you a good account of the Savannah.
The Savannah is some 80-90km on the way to Yola. It is indeed one of the most amazing views in the whole of Nigeria. The vegetation there is one which is very calming. It is a land of clay, hence very rich for tubers and sugarcane farming. There is where the former sugar factory of Nigeria used to operate, now it's owned by the tycoon business man Dangote. After passing great mountainous regions, hills and valleys, and a few Sahel vegetations, one will just be marvelled with what lies ahead.
Well, there's nothing more annoying to the road traveller than a bad road. I tell you the Savannah road to Adamawa is somewhere between 30-40km but it takes forever to cross. The roughness of this road leaves one with a vibrating resonance even hours after reaching their destinations.
Around this time of the year, in the Northeast, I tend to notice that although it's already mid July, most farmers are just getting prepared to cultivate their farms. Unlike in the Central and the Southern parts where crops are already being harvested. Perhaps the rain comes somewhat lately around here.
Anyways, the car that I was in had to make a stop for everyone to stretch out and take some timeout off this crazy road before we headed on. Alas, I'd say it was a bonus to me. For what more would a traveller ask for if not some time for photographs? Lol. So I was given he chance to take these pics. Along the way just before entering Numan LGA we crossed the bridge that linked Adamawa and the famous River Benue.
