Transcript of Mount Olympus

Five Themes of Geography Mount Olympus I chose to do this attraction because I saw it as a unique attribution to Washington. The name of the mountain reminds me of Greek mythology and the myth that claims that the 12 gods and goddess' lived on Mount Olympus in ancient Greece. Initial Thoughts MOVEMENT MY SOURCES LOCATION The absolute location or coordinates of Mount Olympus are: 47.8013° N, 123.7108° W. Mount Olympus is located in the center of the Olympic Peninsula. REGION PLACE HUMAN INTERACTIONS THANKS FOR WATCHING The Columbia Basin Region has little to no elevation compared to mountains such as Mount Olympus. Like the Olympic Mountain Region, the Cascade Mountain Region and the Okanogan Highlands Region are consisted mostly of mountain ranges. The Olympic Mountain range is the 2nd largest in Washington. The mountain range also sits in the middle of the Olympic Peninsula. People visiting are normally tourists or locals looking for a hiking trip. Several of the mountains in this region are considered a great accomplish to climb and make it to the top. This is a panorama of the Olympic Mountain Range. This range is often viewed from Seattle. Above is a panorama of the Cascade Mountain Range, compared above. Before Europeans settled in America, the Olympic Mountain range was consisted of Native Americans, whom used the peninsula as a fishing and hunting area. Not much of the original culture that used to consist in this area before Europeans settled here have left a mark in the environment. Along with the movement of people into the area, business operation were put in full tow and left the culture to wither away. Features of the region include rivers. This happens to be the Sol Duc Falls. It runs about 78 miles long and is a great point to hike to. Mount Olympus gains over 220 inches of precipitation, mostly in the form of snow. About 226 glaciers crown the Olympic Mountain Range. 8 are perched on Mount Olympus Transportation throughout the region consists of common movement such as: cars, buses/shuttles, air travel, or by boat. Some who want a hiking experience will find great paths and views. As said earlier, Mount Olympus is considered a great accomplishment to achieve. Back when America was being formed, Europeans such as the Spanish, French, and English moved into the area which is now Washington for religious, wealth, or territorial reasons. Native Americans used to inhabit this area, but were probably moved to Oklahoma or Kansas, which were special states set aside for the Native Americans to live in. Resources are probably shipped to and from this region by semis when needed and cargo trains to carry timber. Most ideas are probably spread through the towns/cities and are brought up in local newspapers. The Makah, once inhabitants of the Olympic Peninsula, adapted to the environment of the coast and used fish and other marine animals as a base for most of their meals. They would use the animal's fur for clothing or to trade. People in the region have, through time, made "modifications" to make their life simpler. For example, the humans have cut down trees to sell, to build with, and clear spaces for buildings. They use different plants that might be edible and not only take away, but add to the environment as well. People add cement for roads and vegetation used for food and display, such as flowers or shrubbery. Tourists/hikers often move about the mountains by hiking. Blog: Oregonlive. Mount Olympus. N.d.

(tags:none | edit tags) Reflection/Revision: After learning all of this about the Olympic Mountain region and Mount Olympus, I think it'd be nice to visit and actual go for a hike in the Olympic Mountain range. Not only would it be fun, but whoever started climbing Mount Olympus, being the highest elevation of the Range, and kept practicing could make it to Mount Everest and make record timing. They could also climb Mount Olympus in Greece, too. Just one little push start of about 8,000 feet and the next thing you know, you're climbing to the top. That person could be me! It really surprised me that 220 feet of snow/precipitation decorate the sides and top of the mountain. I was thinking Mount Olympus is just a mountain, but not anymore. After seeing several pictures I now see it a great adventure and a beautiful view for nature lovers.
