This green village is being swallowed by dense layers of ivy slowly creeping over every brick and path. Houtou Wan Village is located on Gouqi Island, which belongs to a group of 394 islands known as the Shengsi Islands in the Zhoushan Archipelago. It's one of many examples of small villages in China that have become ghost towns due to urbanization, inaccessibility, depletion of resources, and shifts in industry, among other factors.

Once a thriving settlement merely half a century ago, Houtou Wan Village was gradually deserted when the small bay could no longer meet the needs of the increasing number of fishing boats. Over the past few decades, nature has reclaimed the land, turning the village into a hauntingly beautiful wonderland devoid of human presence save for wandering tourists and a handful of elderly residents who refuse to leave their birthplace.
In the mouth of the Yangtze River off the eastern coast of China, a small island holds a secret haven lost to the forces of time and nature—an abandoned fishing village swallowed by dense layers of ivy slowly creeping over every brick and path.

Wow, I've been inside Harveys multiple times and never knew this fascinating bit of history: an extortion plot with a complicated bomb in 1980.

Depart for the Wild by Stian N - A view into a narrow fjord passage in western Norway. The salt water here is some 200 kilometers / 125 miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean. Captured only a minute before a heavy rain storm hit. Stian Nhttps://goo.gl/PVqQjT

This region of forest in Basque country has been harvested for charcoal for many years, not by clearcutting, but by systematic pruning. This has caused the trees to grow with very long, spidery branches, even as the forest itself remains intact – and the resulting setting is haunting. Oskar Zapirain's photos are well worth the look.
Oskar Zapirain's photographs capture eerie forests cast in thick fog, hazy light descending upon the foliage in the same green shade that blankets the floor in moss. Zapirain has been attracted to this landscape for years because of the homogenous light as well as the way it forces the

peyto lake banff national park
Peyto Lake (pea-toe) is a glacier-fed lake located in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies. The lake itself is easily accessed from the Icefields Parkway. It was named for Bill Peyto, an early trail guide and trapper in the Banff area.
The lake is formed in a valley of the Waputik Range, between Caldron Peak, Peyto Peak and Mount Jimmy Simpson, at an elevation of 1,860 m (6,100 ft).
During the summer, significant amounts of glacial rock flour flow into the lake, and these suspended rock particles give the lake a bright, turquoise colour. Because of its bright colour, photos of the lake often appear in illustrated books, and area around the lake is a popular sightseeing spot for tourists in the park. The lake is best seen from Bow Summit, the highest point on the Icefields Parkway.
The lake is fed by the Peyto Creek, which drains water from the Caldron Lake and Peyto Glacier (part of the Wapta Icefield), and flows into the Mistaya River

GOOD TIMES TO ALL G+ FRIENDS

Moraine Lake,National Park, Alberta, Canada

Moraine Lake is a glacially-fed lake in Banff National Park,                    14 kilometres (8.7 mi) outside the Village of Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. It is situated in the Valley of the Ten Peaks, at an elevation of approximately 6,183 feet (1,885 m). The lake has a surface area of .5 square kilometres (0.19 sq mi).
The lake, being glacially fed, does not reach its crest until mid to late June. When it is full, it reflects a distinct shade of blue. The colour is due to the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake on a continual basis
The area around the lake has several walking/hiking trails which are, from time to time, restricted. This is the one most commonly taken by tourists. The Rockpile Trail along the actual moraine is approximately 300 metres long, with an elevation change of 24 metres (79 ft). The view of the lake from the top of the rockpile is one of the most photographed locations in all of Canada.]That view of the mountains behind the lake in Valley of the Ten Peaks is known as the Twenty Dollar View, as Moraine Lake was featured on the reverse side of the 1969 and 1979 issues of the Canadian twenty dollar bill
Along the same trailhead, the Consolation Lakes trail starts, which is approximately 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) long, with an elevation change of 90 metres (300 ft). Upon reaching Consolation Lakes hikers may continue along to the upper lake, which is not visible from the end of the lower lake. There is, however, no clearly marked trail, and can often be a scramble over large rocky areas.
Near the canoe docks of Moraine Lake Lodge there is another trailhead. This trailhead is the start of two trails, one of which branches out into four different trails - so there are in total, five trails starting at that trailhead (Moraine Lake Lakeshore Trail, Eiffel Lake, Wenkchemna Pass, Larch Valley, and Sentinel Pass). The Lake Louise & Yoho Map provides information on these trails

Just got back from dining here. I've had Indian food from many establishments and this place is immediately among my favorites, and it is definitely my favorite in the Salem area. Especially good are the vegetable samosas. Has an excellent vegetarian menu.

This is the old fire station converted into a museum. They have five old firetrucks on display, as well as picture and item displays. The trucks are very cool and the workers are great to let your kids climb up on them for photo opps. My two boys, 3 and 1, loved it. There is no charge for admission, but donations are encouraged. Lastly, they may have hours posted online and even on the door, but those hours are from when the Chamber of Commerce was tenant there. It is now available only when someone from the fire department makes a special trip to open the museum for you, so I recommend calling in advance so they can be prepared.

This is our favorite place to eat in Salem. They have a diverse selection food on multiple ethnic menus so you can always find something you want, plus they have just about the best selection of vegetarian options I've ever come across. I highly recommend this restaurant.
