My Public Lands Roadtrip: Wildlife in Wyoming
african songs
Image by mypubliclands
Wyoming has an unbelievable variety of world class wildlife. From grizzly bears to marmots, golden eagles to cutthroat trout, Wyoming offers something for everyone. BLM lands are vital to big game, upland game, waterfowl, shorebirds, songbirds, raptors and hundreds of species of non-game mammals, reptiles, and amphibians.As you drive through Wyoming, you can’t help but see pronghorn (commonly called antelope after its African cousin). The pronghorn is the fastest land animal in North America, running up to 55 mph. There are almost as many pronghorn in Wyoming as people! Besides pronghorn, Wyoming also is home to many other game animals including bighorn sheep, mountain goat, elk, mule deer, white tail deer and moose.

Mammals of all sizes are abundant: marmots, chipmunks, skunks, raccoons, badgers, rabbits, beaver, prairie dogs, coyotes, foxes, mountain lions and bears.

If you look overhead, try to spot a golden eagle, a Swainson’s hawk or peregrine falcon. Listen closely and you’ll hear the distinctive song of Wyoming’s state bird the western meadowlark. Wyoming is also home to about 40 percent of the Greater Sage-Grouse in the United States.

Anglers travel from all over to take advantage of Wyoming’s world class trout fisheries. Wyoming streams and lakes provide habitat for cutthroat, rainbow, brown, brook, lake, and golden trout. Other popular game fish include walleye, sauger, pike, grayling, ling, bass, bluegill, sunfish, catfish, and carp. Wyoming also manages habitat for several endangered or threatened species like the black footed ferret, the Canada lynx, grizzly bears, trumpeter swans, and the Wyoming toad.

BLM Wyoming manages wildlife habitat in cooperation with other state and federal agencies. When authorizing land use activities, the needs of wildlife, fish and plants must be taken into consideration.

Wyoming’s wildlife is truly worth the watching!

Radio Controlled Clock

A radio controlled clock offers many advantages over conventional clocks. They can keep perfect time without ever having to be adjusted. That’s right you never even have to adjust them for daylight savings time. This type of clock is found in all sorts of applications including wrist watches, wall, alarm and travel clocks.

How it clock works

Although some manufactures say their radio controlled clocks are atomic clocks this is not really true. An atomic clock is operated by a atomic oscillator, while a radio controlled clock has a small radio inside. The radio inside receives a signal from an atomic clock.

The signals received by most radio controlled clocks in America originate near Fort Collins, Colorado from the NIST radio station WWVB. The radio station broadcasts on 60KHZ frequency and the clock with its miniature radio inside is tuned to receive the signal.

The signal 60KHZ is located so far below most other radio signals that it is not interrupted by any other signals put out by radio or television. The signals from radio and television stations are generally transmitted at no lower then 530KHZ. The 60 KHZ can not carry voice or audio and only transmits a code. The code that is broadcast is a binary code or bits and are sent at a slow rate of one bit per second. It is so slow that it takes a full minute to generate a complete time code. This slow rate is why the first time you set it may take up to five full minutes to show the correct time.

Once the clock has received and decoded the code sent from the radio station it will then apply a time zone correction so that it shows local time. The radio station provides the time as Universal Time. When your clock is set and running for the first time it probably will not read the radio signal for at least 4 hours and more likely will only do so once a day. Instead it uses a quartz crystal oscillator to keep time.

Radio controlled clocks are very accurate time keepers that actually set themselves one or more times per day. They use a 60KHZ low frequency signal from a radio station to set themselves so they are always right even during daylight savings time.

Another type of radio controlled clock is radio controlled digital clock, to know more about it visit ATSClock.com

Wet Winter Watersports In Morocco

Have you ever fancied trying your hand at watersports? Maybe you are a regular windsurfer or kitesurfer and you are after your regular fix? However, with the cold weather gripping the UK it can be increasingly difficult to hit the water. This is why windsurfing, surfing and kitesurfing in Morocco are growing so popular, especially during the winter months. With the promise of temperatures averaging 21 degrees Celsius during the winter months, Morocco has a warm and welcoming climate.

Additionally, because of resorts like Essaouira in the north, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the waves with a spot of watersport entertainment.

Kitesurfing in Morocco is particularly popular around the handful of beaches that hug the coast in and around Essaouira. The conditions are ideal for beginners and more experienced kitesurfers alike. This is represented in the variety of conditions experienced at these beaches. The more experienced should head to La Grotte The Cave as the waves produced here are higher and stronger. For a more rounded kitesurfing experience in Morocco, where you are likely to encounter watersport enthusiasts of all disciplines and levels of ability, head to Sidi Kaouki or the main beach in Essaouira.

Due to a growing community of watersport enthusiasts enjoying a holiday in Morocco, there is a vibrant scene that any budding kitesurfer, surfer or windsurfer will thrive in. The cafes are often busy with people talking about their experiences on the waves and newcomers to the watersport scene will find plenty of places providing lessons and equipment. This is a main attraction that is helping to shape Essaouira and Morocco as a top kitesurfing destination regardless of the time of year.

So, if you are keen to get your wet suit on, enjoy some sunshine and slide across the waves then kitesurfing in Essaouira is the place to be this winter.

Explora Morocco have a passion for the sea, and a passion for adventure and want to ensure that you do not just book an activity but you have an experience, an adventure and come away with great memories.
