Rivers of the United States

Hi friends! I just discovered these two very cool maps and wanted to share them with you.

First up is a map of the rivers in the United States, put together digitally by Nelson Minar. For you mappers and computer whizzes, Nelson designed this as a tutorial that can be found here or by going to his Flickr account via clicking the map below. There’s something mesmerizingly beautiful about it, isn’t there?

Nelson MinarNext is a map submitted to Reddit by user Gradeskee of the rivers in the US that drain into the mighty Mississippi River.

Amazing! Thanks for reading. :)

Alaska from space

So this morning, after a leftover sweet potato-graham cracker muffin, I checked the weather and discovered it to be a coma-inducing 27 degrees outside. (I could have walked outside, I realize, but the pain and shock are easier to handle when you know what’s coming.) Anyway, I noticed a little Google maps radar thingy on the page and wondered in passing what the weather is like in Alaska. I’ve never been there or anything, I was just curious. I don’t know why. Stop asking.

At any rate, I wanted to share with you these incredibly beautiful satellite photos I discovered while scrolling all over our northernmost state. I have no idea where any of them are, as I just took a few quick screen shots. And now, regardless of the weather, the dog has made it very clear that there will be a walk on this cold November morning before I leave for WORK ON BLACK FRIDAY.

Happy Friday everyone! If you’re out shopping today… please be nice. :)
