Transcript of My road trip

Road Trip! the first stop on my great road trip is the.... Taiga cordillera The landforms in the taiga Cordillera are highly mountainous The Climate here was not as good as I expected. It was really cold. There are long, cold winters (-20°c), and short and cool summers of (13°c).
It was very dry there, the precipitation is approximately 250-400mm The vegetation in the Taiga Cordillera is Tundra of all types, areas of of scattered forest.
I really liked that; it was cool seeing all of the scattered forest. The quality of soil was very poor as a result of the cold temperatures and bare rock that covered the ground. Human activities and industries in the Taiga Cordillera: there was a lot of hunting, trapping,
forestry and tourism. Funny story, my dad was hunting and wanted to be cool to fire a gun and look good but when he went to shoot the gun he went flying backwards into the water. HI-LARIOUS! Taiga plains next on our road trip its the...
Taiga Plains The landscape here in the taiga plains is Interior Plains and some foothills The climate here in the Taiga Plains ecozone is very cold.The winter there were very long and cold (-23°c). The precipitation has 250 to 400mm. The vegetation has open forests to dense forest(Black + white spruce, jack pine, paper birch and trembling aspen. The soils are continuous permafrost in north, and some scattered permafrost further south. There is also a variety of poor quality soils. The human activities were just like the Taiga cordillera. There was hunting, trapping, tourism. Next on my epic
adventure is... The Boreal Plains Guess where I went next
???? The landforms here are level to gently rolling plains The climate in the Boreal Plains had cold winters . good thing my friends hearts were warm to make the trip better. There winters were long and cold (-20°c)There summers relatively warm of (17 °C) with precipitation of 450mm. The wildlife in the taiga Cordillera Ecozone includes Dall's Sheep, woodland and
barren-ground caribou, moose, mountain goat, black and grizzly bears, lynx, arctic groundsquirrel, American pika and wolverine. The poor soils I was so cold in the Taiga we got to go hunting Scattered Forest The Wildlife In the Taiga Planes ecozone include moose, woodland caribou,
bison, wolf, black bear, marten and lynx. The industries: oil and gas development, and agricultural maintenance This image is an image I took when i got a helicopter ride at the tiaga plains It kinda sucked that I was really cold on my road trip The open forests in the Taiga plains You would not believe how many moose I saw at the Taiga Plains. I think I saw 14, it was so cool. This is an image of the foothills. It was awesome! Here is another picture of hunting. We hunted twice on our road trip!!! Here is a picture of the poor soil I saw in the Taiga Plains. I was really disapointed with the quality of the soil This was something I thought was super cool. I love the way they developed oil and gas with this machine The vegetation in the Boreal Plains are coniferous trees such as white + black spruce, and jack pine. It's also mixed with deciduous such as: aspen, poplar and some nice white burch trees. The soil in our third stop on the road trip is rich soil formed under forests. The human activities and Industries in the Boreal Plains ecozone are mainly Farming,forestry, oil and gas development and tourism. Wildlife in this Ecozone includes woodland caribou, mule deer,
bison, coyote, fisher, and chipmunks If you don't know, this is a picture of the rolling Plains. You should really see them.
They are like nothing you have seen before!!! Here you will see some of the coniferous trees. Oh and if you look very close, you just might see me? I'm inside the tracter helping friends farm. Farming is a great activity and Industry this shows the rain we got there one day. There is approximately 450mm of precipitation The Final stop on our road trip
is... The Prairie The Climate in the Prairies has relatively long and cold winters and warm summers. The precipitation is about 250-700mm. The vegetation on our final stop is short grass in dry areas and long grass in wet areas. Very little natural vegetation remains. The soil in the prairies are rich, Grassland soils The human activities and industries in the prairies include; agriculture, urbanization(which is the physical growth of urban areas as a result of global change) and oil and gas development The wildlife in the prairies are white-tailed deer, elk,
coyote, pronghorn antelope, and white-tailed jack rabbit. The rain wasn't that bad but we did get a lot of precipitation on one day! Here is some more rich soil. i love the feeling of the rich soil. This is a picture of the flat and rolling plains at the beautiful prairies This is the long grass in the wet areas of the Prairies This is the urbanization there!!!! This is the pronghorn antelope The landscape here is flat with variations in land elevation as a result of the rolling plains Olivia Coady
