Travel to Bosnia
"Welcome to the amateur traveler I'm your host Chris Christensen? Let's talk about Bosnia. I like to welcome to the show. Canaan Charter, which who is coming from Bosnia and his coming to us from highlander adventures dot, be and has come to talk to us about Bosnia Herzegovina. Canaan welcome to the show. Thank you very much happy to be here excellent and for people who can't find Bosnia and Herzegovina on a map. Where are we talking about? Well. Everyone knows how to find Italy. It's a big shoe ships country. You have a boot-shaped country, so just go to the right side across the Atlantic Sea and we are right there. Well and your neighbor of Croatia. Bosnia you know goes around like little crescent moon. knoll on the West and south, and then these we have Serbia and southeast Montenegro. I to address. You're interested in making sure that people understand that. If they remember news about Bosnia, they may be remembering news from twenty thirty years ago when Bosnia was going through. A, war that's done, and that's been done now for quite a long time there there are people who are out in the working world who don't remember that and it's a wonderful place to go I. Want to say that I was anxious to do this show because we haven't done a show on Bosnia for a long time. And since then I have been to the country and loved it. So why should someone go to Bosnia Herzegovina? Well, there is a lot of reasons depending what you're interested in now. Bosnia is very complex country, but extremely small size of Pennsylvania, but inside. You have so much for the adventure seekers. There are so many adventure opportunities from Whitewater. Rafting canyoning to paragliding hiking is spectacular, and then if you're into history, we say that we have much more history than we can handle. Different Than Empires were here. We like to say where the crossroads or that where the meeting between the East and the West. Culturally very complex country, and also religiously we have Muslims, we have the Orthodox Christians, and we have Catholics with three big groups. Of course there's the Jewish community here which has been here since they were thrown out of Spain after Kista, so for five hundred years, all of these make this crazy, crazy and beautiful mix that very interesting for foreigners to see because inside I will for example and. And in many other cities in Bosnia, you can pined mosque Docs Church Catholic, Church and a synagogue literally in two hundred meter radius, and it's been like that for five hundred years while inside I will because that's how will the city is? And all of a Bosnia and we're very proud of that architecturally very different from anything else you can find in Europe you're GonNa, find this mix of. Of European styles as well as the optimum styles and a lot of course, local Bosnian styles in all of that mixed together will like to say that we are a Bosnian pots. That's one dish that we have. It's cooked in a big pot with a lot of things, mixed sight, and that's Bosnia a lot of things mixed, and it works perfectly. An Indian taste is fantastic why you should. Should visit Bosnian well. Whatever you choose. You're GONNA love it. If you're into history too much of it, you're into nature. It's absolutely stunning. It's fantastic, magic Pennsylvania, and then put inside the Rockies Grand Canyon Inca trail at a lot of other things as well a bit of New Zealand as well. We just like seaside. We have twenty four kilometers of seaside, so that's one thing with them have. And then, of course, for actually learning history or getting certain messages, let's say about life about history. How people live together or how they don't like each other, because while we had a lot of wars, let's especially in the last two hundred years. There's a lot of lessons that you can learn in Boston. Let's say war tourism doctors is now very big part of tourism in in Bosnia so if you want to learn about that, we are definitely to come to see what happens. If you don't defeat fascism, like most of Europe defeated off the Second World War and it actually shows how life can be both good and the bat also if you want to visit a place. which is completely different than rest of the Europe and very relaxed very laid back with fantastic food, most at a lot of reasons I think.

"Amateur Traveler episode seven hundred today. The amateur traveler talks about Spanish explorers native Americans a volcano crater cactus and canyons of various sizes. One really really grand and one really really small as we go to the National Parks of Arizona. Welcome to the immature traveler. I'm your host Chris. Kristen sending this is indeed episodes. Seven hundred of the amateur traveler as we approach the fifteenth year anniversary. So let's celebrate a and now let's get back to work. Let's talk about Arizona. I like to welcome back to the show. Gary Aren't from everything. Dash EVERYWHERE DOT com. Who's come to talk to us? About Arizona? National Parks Carry. Welcome back to the show. Thank you for the. What is it? Fifteen or sixteen. So it's not like it's been that long since I've talked to Gary Gary and I also have been a CO hosting this. We can travel with a couple of other friends for ten years now so we get to talk periodically but you pitched me going to Arizona and seeing national parks I would say why should someone do that. But you already said national parks so Arizona just has the Grand Canyon right well. That's that's the big one I would say you're looking at. That's what it's best known for but actually Arizona has twenty two different national park service sites. Which places at third amongst all states as far as the number of sites behind California and Alaska only having some second now that I think about it but yeah there's a lot and I've been to a lot of these but you actually came up with some that I'd never heard of so. That was one of the reasons that I was anxious to. Have you back on the show and talk about this but let's talk about? Why should someone go to Arizona and see the national parks? Well for starters you can go year round and I think that something that you can't do easily in a lot of parks last year. For example I did a trip to southern Oregon and Northern California and even in June a lot of the parks there were snowed in and when I showed in I mean. Twenty feet of snow snowed in right so this is in the summer. And they're still so much snow. Because it's an altitude. And you're you're not gonNA really see that in Arizona Star in in the south so if you're looking for a trip in the winter or something it's it's a great place to go and there's a great diversity. These aren't just natural sites although it certainly has those there's a great deal of history. That goes back told him. The ancient people who lived in this area before Europeans showed up as well as a westward expansion in a host of other things so there really is a wide diversity. I also going to see some landscapes that you're really not going to see anywhere else or other desserts in the United States but The SONORAN desert that. You're going to see here is really unique and have some things that you're just not gonNA find saying California Nevada or even Utah. The one exception I can think of to. You're not going to run into whether here would be the North Rim of the Grand Canyon Which closes in October want to say because it had closed before. We did a trip in October of last year. It hadn't snowed in yet but all services were closed on the largest closed in all facilities are closed at that point and then it will snow in. And they'll stop plowing the roads as soon as the snows happen. Yeah so I was last there. In January of twenty twenty those primarily in the Tucson area but then I made a trip up north around flagstaff and a lot of people don't realize that there's snow up in flagstaff primarily because of the elevation than anything. And so yeah. There was definitely snow on the ground when I visited some of the sites but I live in Minnesota so this was like your price my first winter. It was not a lot of snow. Wasn't that coal right. The roads are open. You can you can actually go and see stuff well and I remember being at the Grand Canyon in April when there was snow at the Rim and it was eighty degrees at the bottom so it depends a lot where you are absolutely. So what kind of itinerary do you recommend? It really depends on where you're going to be. I think most people are probably going to be flying into Tucson or Phoenix right and the third place might be flagstaff. One smaller town. But it's in the north and There's kind of pockets of parks around those. And the first one I would bring up is a park while National Monument and it's extremely unique among all the sites in the United States that's Hokum National Monument anemic because you cannot visit and if you could visit. There is nothing to see well then. It's unique in an unusual way. I have needs a little bit of explanation so just south of Phoenix is the reservation. There was an archaeological dig. Their WANNA say took place in the seventies sixties and seventies called snake down and what they ended up doing was once. The excavation was over the reburied it. So you got declared a national monument and it's on the reservation and they don't let you go and visit the site or snake town is but if they did there is literally nothing to see because it's buried and for National Park collectors. It poses a problem because for whatever reason it's still on the books huff thirds no visitor center. There's no there's nothing but technically make them really getting technical here if you look at the outline of what constitutes the National Monument isn't interstate that runs through it so should actually go to the Beltway Beneath Phoenix. YOU'RE ON THAT ROAD. You will technically drive through this area and you'll see buffing. There's nothing there so it's kind of an oddity on. I don't know why it's still on the books or why it's there. But supposedly there was a cultural center for the tribe and you go there and they had a display about snake Tama. They closed it. And they're going to be reopening again and you could actually get a stamp there and that would be the closest thing to visit other than that I mean. I think we could talk about so there of the twenty two sites. There are three national parks proper. The first is obviously the Grand Canyon. I don't know how much we need to talk about that. I'm sure done shows on the Grand Canyon. We have done a show on the Grand Canyon in the first year of Amateur Traveler. And then we did another show later on about Rafting the Grand Canyon with the George Wendt the now late founder of ores rafting But that's been a little while ago so it's worth a mention. Yeah I mean everyone's familiar with it. Is You mentioned you can access it from the North or the South? It's a very common trip for people to make from Las Vegas. Yeah although people go to the South Rim from Las Vegas. That's long drive right. I mean and it should be noted. The Grand Canyon says enormous chunk taken out of the state of Arizona and their bridges to get around. It writes the you have to drive around at our fly over it. The southern rim is lower elevation and by far the more popular of the two sides. You can visit. It gets ninety percent of the tourism. Am I read about that? Would sound about right if you go further up river you get into the Glen Canyon Recreation area. And that's where you'll see that's like horseshoe bend is a famous site of most people may have seen the photo also National Park Service site on the Colorado River but not part of the Canyon and if you go downstream there are also some Indian reservations. One of which which famously built the Skywalk horseshoe-shaped. Yeah so it it. It's one of the most popular parks in the United States. It should have been put on the list of the seven. Natural Wonders of the world said the underground river in the Philippines. Made it not that. We're bitter fool. No in the way they walked in it was kind of ridiculous but yeah it's the one thing that if you're an American or even if you're not American coming to visit the United States I think you should I mean it's literally alongside maybe yellowstone in Yosemite those are considered the three crown jewel national parks in the US system brand. It really is an incredible
The Grand Canyon
"Have you ever heard of the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is the Whitest Canyon in the world and located in Arizona which also happens to be my home state. It's also considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The Grand Canyon is two hundred seventy seven miles long up to eighteen miles wide in over six thousand feet deep in places. It's very colorful a combination of reds browns whites and many other colors because each of the different layers or strata were formed at different times during the Earth's history. The Earth is very very old so the Grand Canyon is made up of different rocks from its two billion year old history early on the Grand Canyon was actually a mountain which overtime sunk down until it was flat. Then is the earth shifted. It became a canyon and over a very long period was even underwater. Eventually a river started flowing through the Canyon which is now known as the Colorado River. The water in the river was full of rocks. So over. Millions of years the river acted like sandpaper. Shaving down the canyon this is called erosion today. When you look at the Grand Canyon you can see the different layers in it similar to a layered cake. Some of the layers are white. Limestone other layers are filled with shells from was underwater and the upper layers are dark and reformed by a volcano after the Grand Canyon was formed into what it looks like today around three thousand years ago native people who now call the ancestral publians live near the Grand Canyon. They built homes out of stone and farmed corn squash and beans. They made carvings and paintings on Canyon walls which is one way we know they live there. Another group who lived there were called the co Nina for the ancestors of the modern Yuma Havasu Pie and who a lot by people who still live around the Grand Canyon. The native people call the Grand Canyon. Cab which means mountain on its side. The ancient people believed the Grand Canyon was a holy place and often visited for miles around to experience. It's wonder after Europeans discovered the new World Francisco Vasquez Coronado and a group of Spanish explorers were in the area. Searching for the fabled seven cities of Cipolla in fifteen forty Coronado ordered captain Garcia Lopez de Cardenas and. His soldiers to explore the area they and their Hopi native guides where the first European to see the wonders of the Grand Canyon. They were amazed at its size and fastness. Two hundred years passed until another European visited the canyon in seventeen seventy six to Spanish priests Francisco Dominguez and Sylvester de Escalate into explored southern Utah and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and the eighteen fifties. They were followed. By Jacob Hamlin a Mormon explorer sent by Brigham Young to find a way to cross the river. They made friends with the WHO a lot by tribe and found the crossing discovered by the Spanish priests which later became Lee's ferry. A theory is a place where a flat boat helps wagons and people cross the river then in eighteen sixty nine major John. Wesley Powell led the first expedition down into the Canyon. He had set out to explore the Colorado River and the Canyon. They wrote down the river on a boat and survived the dangerous rapids and finally ended up in what is now known as MOAB UTAH. John Wesley Powell later became famous for the founding of the Boy Scouts of America. In one thousand nine hundred three. President Theodore Roosevelt visited the Grand Canyon and marveled at its beauty. Teddy Roosevelt was known for his love of nature and spent much of his time outdoors in the Grand Canyon. He did everything he could to help. Preserve its natural. Wonder he worked to make it a national monument and believe places like the Grand Canyon should be preserved so people all over the world can enjoy it. All Roosevelt was president. He formed the National Parks Association to help. Save places like the Grand Canyon today. The Grand Canyon is one of the most famous places to visit in the world with about five million visitors every year. Who come from all over to see and explore it. Most people just come to look out over the vast canyon. I've been there a few times with my family. It's about a four hour. Drive from US where we live near Phoenix Arizona. The last time I went we brought our foreign kids who also looked out over it in awe. We had to hold them close to us because the canyon is a very steep drop below which made us very nervous. When I was in high school our family and a group of other families hiked down into the part of the canyon known as Havasu Pie. We drove there early in the morning and had all of our camping gear and food loaded onto the back of mules. Then we hiked about four hours down into the Canyon at the bottom of the trail. The huge picturesque Havasu falls. You can swim at the falls. Jump off cliffs and hike further into see and swim in the waterfalls. Our trip was very fun but took a turn for the worse when one of the days I slept on Iraq and twisted my ankle pretty bad the next day we were supposed to hike out so my close friend. I got up early and started hiking. I live most of the way. Even up the steep switch-backs. It was a rough hike out but the waterfalls and swimming holes made it worth it anyway along with hiking people take helicopter tours over the Grand Canyon love to raft the Wild Colorado River. They also take horseback tours down into the Canyon. And it's very popular. Hike it from Rim Durham. By sisters in their friends. Do this recently. Another main attraction is the Grand Canyon.

Nessie those folks say it has leathery other wings like a bat and analogous out personally. I'm with the feather crowd but I've been wrong before either way. We're talking body as big as a man and a wingspan that could fill a whole old road and the sidewalks to a bird so big that when it flaps its wings it sounds like thunder. It's enough to make Zeus himself jealous. It's been a few years now But this flying behemoth has had all kinds of sightings in the past especially in America and Alaska. It said that massive thunderstorms follow in. Its wake whenever this Buke flies. But that that doesn't mean the thunderbird is all doom and gloom native American legend tells stories of the thunderbird actually helping tribes to grow food during rough times when there wasn't anything to eat the mini meany people even believe that Thunderbirds messengers of the Great Sun. itself are the way they aren't supposed to be dangerous.

Why do we like certain foods?
"We we know you come from all over the world so you have lots of different kinds of experiences and lots of different kinds of questions. One thing that's universally true is is that you all eat but you don't like the same things do you and that got one of our listeners. Pretty curious so today. We're going to listen back to an episode all about food. MARLINS ALEX I like to cook food to eat it. I'm eleven years old in Columbus Columbus Ohio and I was wondering why we like to eat certain foods for example. Why do some some people like to eat spicier food? Some people not like to eat their vegetables in that stuff. We love this question Alex. A few months ago we actually had a live event here in Vermont and we asked other kids about what kinds of food they love and hate Mac and cheese. Yeah it's really cheesy and cake because I have it every time on my mistake seaweed and salted dried. Well I like trying new foods of Grand Canyon hotdog uh-huh Alec Foods but I like dumplings. There were good taste and I like the texture. Macaroni at school could so cheesy. My Favorite I. I me and I like bitching soon. My favorite food peach because nerve. 'CAUSE 'cause there's tweet probably fix sticks or Kim surrogates. I like lots of foods but one of my favorite foods is hot. Docs because hot dogs are delicious. mm-hmm and the Bun and the Ketchup. Give them a very good taste of flavor. I like you cut down I think so. Why do some kids like hotdogs and others? Don't we got in touch with this guy to find out. Yeah I'm Chris Kimball and I'm the guy who likes to to make sure recipes work when you get into the kitchen at home. Chris Kimball is a chef writer and TV personality. He had a magazine called Cook's illustrated and and he had a TV. Show called America's test kitchen where they tried out different recipes to make sure they were as good as possible now. He runs a company in Boston. Called Milk Street Great. It's a magazine cooking school and TV and radio production company. Let's re familiarize ourselves with Alex's question while we like take eat certain foods for example. Why do some people like to eat spicy food? Some people not like to eat convection boys. That stuff studies have suggested that wild you know you are still inside your mother which your mother eats. It does have an effect on what you're GonNa like when you get a little older mother who loves carrots for example sometimes kids grow up to like carrot so they like bitter things a sweet things that affect your taste. I do think children in general like very high energy foods which means obviously sugary foods. Food sweet foods in over time I think as you get older your taste buds your palate. The way you react to foods changes in people tend to have slightly duller tastes and therefore want bigger flavors. They tend to like spicy foods by the way most of what you think of taste as nothing to do with a Palette of the tongue. That's just sweet sour bitter something called you. Mommy which means meaty may be a couple others others but almost everything you perceive as being a specific taste is through the nose or backup through the throat from the mouth up into the nasal cavity and the sensors there are going to pick up the thousand different kinds of sweet so your palate will determine sweet in different levels of sweet sweet but it's really It's the air. That's the odors that identify strawberry for example peppermint So you're smelling it rather than just tasting it with your tongue and your taste. Buds flavor is mostly about smell. And very little about taste taste the sensors on your tongue can determine different levels of the basic thing sweet sour salty bitter and media your mommy but when you get within any of those categories To all the infinite Senate variety. That's really the smell so for somebody who really doesn't like to eat any vegetables and their parents are telling them. Every the week you have to eat your vegetables you have to eat your Broccoli. This tastes good and the kid is saying. I don't like Broccoli. How do you develop a taste for things? Is that at first. You don't necessarily like well. Why should you? I mean you don't like Broccoli Doni Broccoli. I think it's A. It's very strange in this country that we seem to like to force kids to eat things they don't Wanna eat. Certainly kids should have good diets. But if kids don't like Broccoli why try try to make me Broccoli. Go find something they do like that is healthy if they want. It need an apple an apple but I don't believe in forcing foods on people that makes no sense to me. Our audience is GonNa think you're the best that's ever been on the podcast. Now you've just given all of our kids in excuse to say mom Kris Kimball enough to eat my Broccoli. When I was growing up my mother maybe eat OKRA? Tell you I still hate Okra. You have not developed a liking of Okra. Well if it's crispy pickled but otherwise now slimy Dan goofy doesn't work for you. What about spicy food? Some cultures have a lot of spicy food. So you're just going to be exposed to spicy food. And most people sort of adapt to whatever the the regional and cultural flavors are in their lives but spicy food is one area where you can gain and lose spice tolerance. Well well there are. Some people are more sensitive to spice like I am than other. That's true you can put a blue dye on the Tung. To measure the number of pappy. I or taste buds on your tongue. The more you have the more sensitive you'll probably be. That's true in in a lot of lot of research now suggests the taste preferences. Some of them are genetic for example I can detect bitterness us very quickly in food. And that's because I have some genetic markers which allow me to do that. But some large part of the population thirty percent center more. Don't have those markers so some of it is is just physiological Not just a matter of of experience and some of it is experience experience. I mean I. Is there a sense that when you try things over and over again you might change your if you grow up in a culture. That's using spicy foods. You'll be used to eating spicy food. Sure I yeah I think I think there's no question about that. You may not experience the spicy foods. Exactly the same. Wiz your neighbor but that'll be part of your diet certainly for me when I was a kid. My mom and my Stepdad used to have what they thought was their delicacy in the eighties was liver wrapped in Bacon. And I thought that was about the most disgusting thing you could possibly eat and now live wrapped in Bacon actually sounds pretty darn tasty and and that liver texture. That was so disgusting to me. As a ten-year-old seems pretty appealing now and that flavor is really wonderful. Do you know what changed. Is it just that you know. I'm I'm an adult and I've made made my brain decide that that's a good flavor. Well it's a good point. The most of of flavor is really about what the brain does with the input sensory input so part of it is getting the input but the big part in the in the frontal lobe is is where you have have emotions and memories and other things is where the brain processes this information and so your reaction to it and your ability to perceive it is based on experience. It's so you may have lots of positive memories or experiences or emotions relating to that food now where twenty years ago you didn't and that's all part and parcel of how the brain perceives flavor. So what goes on in the brain and how the brain takes those inputs imports and puts them together. People don't really understand yet. So the it's it's really brain function the controls the perception of of flavor. More than anything else. So maybe if you just told yourself every day that you really like Broccoli you could eventually convinced your tongue that your brain says you like it there risk my. It's called mind over matter. I'm not sure that works but you could certainly try it.

Why You Should Visit the Canary Islands
"Why should someone go to the Canary Islands. It's hard the summit up in one sentence but to absolutely Canary Islands are ornately unique landscape. Each island is probably different than the last there are white sand beaches black sand beaches. There are volcanoes stunning scenery views. Like the Grand Canyon on some of the islands there are pine forests. And you can get everything. It's for both adventure. Tourists that love to hike and explore for and people that want to sit back and enjoy Pinochle Outta so. There's a little bit of everything and you aren't going to see scenery like this anywhere else on the planet will you. You mentioned it was off the coast of Morocco. I guess we haven't said where it belongs. In terms of culturally. It is not Moroccan. It is not. It is actually part of Spain fine but it still has a lot of African roots and the historic people that live there before the Spanish inquisition were called Guavas. And so there's still a lot of historical artifacts in historical sites on the islands. That are really interesting for people interested in the more historical aspect of the islands as well. Well the the name comes from the Latin for the island of dogs can are not canary and because the guavas worship dogs and now is the part that I didn't know until I was doing the research for the show. Yeah it's really interesting in on one of the bigger islands tannery fe. There's actually some caves that you can visit where they're are actually still some remains of the ancient Guangzhou's that used to live on the island. Yeah it's really interesting to see some of that more historical outside of non European aspect excellent. Well what kind of itinerary do you recommend so first of all. There's a number of different silence as you see some major islands. Where would you recommend we fly into? It started it depends on how long trip you're going to take and I would recommend either going for seven days or fourteen days while you could do a shorter trip as well. I would recommend either flying into Grand Canaria or flying into tenor. Fa and if you fly into Grand Canaria which is the largest island and probably the one of the most popular especially for Europeans. There's a ton of stuff to do on that island Winston itself so you could also choose to do one island but let's start with a seven day itinerary because that's probably what most people would have have the time to do especially coming from the US so flying into Gran Canaria. You'd WANNA spend two or three days there and the great thing about all the islands islands is that for the most part you can take varies from one island to the next. And if you're doing a seven day itinerary you would WanNa pick either the eastern islands or the Western islands to save time from Gran Canaria which has beautiful beaches. It's got pine forests or some fantastic fantastic hiking on this island as well spend a few days there. Then you would want to depart in the evening to Sweat Ventura which You can take a a ferry to and that island has a lot of white sand beaches. That's the Sandy Beach Island because it is a little bit closer to the African taken coast. It gets that wind swept landscape. And there's some beautiful sea caves there. You can explore and some great beachside restaurants restaurants and from that island you can spend a day and then take the ferry over to lend throat and Lanzarote has tim and fire national park. which is about an area of about a thousand volcanoes and go will do a thousand? I did not though yes so its its. Nickname is the land of a thousand volcanoes. And it's an absolutely otherworldly landscape and I have never been to Hawaii but this this was another level of extraterrestrial landscape. And there's a lot of volcano that you can hike to and there's a lot of places where the lava or ancient lava has come up to next to the road and you can get out and walk around in it and it's really really interesting. There's also a place. Is there called Lahar area. which is this area where they have cultivated the ancient lava to grow wine? And you can do wine tastings there and even stay at a little winery as well. Well let's finish the area then we'll come back and do this obviously at much more detail. Yes so after lands are out. Then you'd WanNa fly to ten Kinda repay and spend your last two days there before departing back to the United States and you would connect through either Madrid Barcelona Celona or Lisbon most likely plying from the US. Okay so you started on Gran Canaria and what are we gonna do either so on Gran Canaria. There are a lot of things to do and GonNa depend on what you're interested in for if you're into the beaches than you're going to want to stay in the loss terrace area. which is the big beach town can get some exercise? They are walking along the beach enjoying doing lots of different restaurants and cafes. There's paddle boarding. You can do right out side if you stay on one of the beachfront hotels but one of the things that I loved. Today there was actually go up to Tom. Adama Nature Park and this area. It looks a lot like northern California. It's so so surprising. There's these endless pine forests. When I saw it I was like oh I had no idea that anything like that existed especially on an island that's close is to Africa so that was really interesting for me and up near that area? There's also some other great places that you can hike and walk at one is called the magic window and it looks out over. This giant monolith called the rock new blow and basically from this arch called the magic window. It's a natural sandstone arch. If you go at sunset you can see this. Trent monolith in the background is absolutely stunning. So I highly recommend going and doing that. And you can also hike to the monolith. It's a little bit farther away. They're not close together. But you could hide that whole area. But that's all remnants. The olds volcanoes. That created the island. So I definitely recommend that to and enjoying the beaches and other areas around the island as well so that would be what I recommend downgrade
Removing King’s name in Kansas City opens wounds, discussion
"Than what you think of this Associated Press headline Kansas city votes to remove king's name from historic street when I woke up this morning as we went to bed I would alert little early before the results and then on this election that was happening yesterday to change the date of Martin Luther king junior Boulevard the sale which it was about a year ago it was the to say only year ago and I woke up this morning and I saw those headlines and I some of the New York times and I some The Washington Post and the hill dot com and I thought this is going to make Kansas city look really bad because it now looks like the city yes pulling off the point the name of one of the great black civil rights leaders in the history of this country because we don't care about that I thought man that is a click headline so I didn't click on Twitter link on one of the headlights and I just saw comments of people talking about how we used to go to Kansas city and the city desk white people white people like again I thought you didn't you really didn't click the link which most people don't anymore I am but you really didn't click a link to get the entire story I remember this when it became an issue and they did stories about it we're trying to monitor what was going on in there is some historic value into say all I understand it was there since the late eighteen hundreds and it's referenced in pop culture and rap songs and all the branding along that street and Boulevard or whatever they have to say on everything like here in Saint Louis every company has the arch on it would be like telling people they could use the arch anymore that would be a big deal so the thing that surprised me the most on the article was Kansas city was the last major city without a doctor Martin Luther king name sake on a street that was kind of surprising but that's not what really happened it sounds like most people were just upset because they took something that the all know and love that per se Boulevard per se drive in what they decide to do is change name of people are upset about that not that not that they changed it to that specific name they just don't want to change it at all it is more so that than anything I mean nobody nobody things but we shouldn't honor doctor king in Kansas city for everything that he has done and there's such a concentration of African American population here as well just like in Saint Louis nobody thinks that there's no reason we should honor Dr Martin Luther king junior it was the process that that it went down that really make people mad and real quick but a year ago eight get someone to help you should rename a street after doctor king and at the time that they are slight James who has since left the mayor's office they form some sort of quick coalition and they said alright what are we going to do here it was either the airport is a new single terminal it was the potato or sixty third street and they don't even ask the people that lived along the coast there which is a major thoroughfare in here in the city there's a lot of houses a lot of businesses that are on sale in Kansas city so even without getting known will of the people that that that that the public vote they did a a survey which they call it I question some of the results of the survey and it turns out that you don't even go in the past they haven't really always done with you know what the city council has done and what not they just decided Hey we're gonna go with a sale and they just decided to March on with us and the city council voted eight to four disregarding any sort of legal precedent that's ever been set so people are actually more mad at the process Ryan than anything and that's what yesterday the folks look at sixty nine percent of the vote to overturn it turn it back into the potato that's what people are most bad about not pulling Dr king's game after mode mad about the fact that they were asked the people were asked and that the city council kind of screwed over Kansas city residents yeah and it be on the ballot you get nearly seventy percent that want to change back to says a lot that there wasn't a lot of support to begin with or at least a gain some support after the fact that they wanted to keep it the way it was historic as it may be you know when I look at national headlines and it's the worst place to get local news anytime you see and some outside source trying to talk about the community you live and they always get it wrong they always sensationalized and that's why you got to ignore these national news agencies when it comes to local matters I find and you really if you click on the New York times are like or The Washington Post worker the hill dot com or whatever national like you would know the backstory you would know that there were mistakes made the entire way as opposed to just hang out in the city had black people that's not that's not that's not what the whole point of this whole thing is I actually had can the city mayor quit Lucas on my show today I have to give the guy he's in at ninety seven day as mayor of Kansas city and it came out it was with us for half an hour and we grilled and we said we're was a mistake made it was a win win this a lot and he flat out said look we made mistakes latter fact he was at the very beginning her hair was part of the team that initially said let's vote and let's get this street named after doctor king E. as any of any of us do their mistake you can also make a mistake so I applaud American coming out and saying we made a mistake and we have to do our best to make sure that that doesn't happen again because like you like me like anybody let that we're all human and you know we want to see government make any kind of a state but their human as well and made a big mistake with this one can be Z. tacos Mike wicked joining us on overnight America in one thing I always find two is sometimes there's a disconnect between politics and politicians how in the world could they have not figured out per se was so beloved it's been there forever and people have it that they have rap songs from what I understand like you know taught rapping about people love this per se and it's kind of like part of the the identity of Kansas city like this is a not necessarily a landmark but it's something that everyone in the year you would know about how come the politicians going to figure out that there would be some problem trying to rename it there is something behind the scenes that none of us saw whether it was the SCLC religious leaders you know Baptist minister is trying to get inside people's pockets or they along those lines there's just something that smells so fishy about the previous administration the previous sitting members of the city council that you just have to wonder how much you have to know about that like you said you like of St Louis that are in here no more arch you know no matter what part you can't that anymore or somebody like in Colorado or won the Grand Canyon said not no more Grand Canyon we're not gonna do that we're gonna call it something else like you just it doesn't it's one of those things where you and I let's look at politicians and say where is the common sense would that make any sense to anybody who took two steps back and called a hundred people who live up and down the Paseo seventy five eighty percent of them are gonna are gonna say now it just it seems like the little bit out of touch yeah people would call the per se anyway for all the time what is the big sky scraper in Chicago Ryan it's Sears tower right it's a distinction Willis towers it might be the generation like my daughter who's night but told me call Willis tower what do you want me and everybody else on the planet it's the Sears tower yeah and always will be Mike we get from our sister station KNBC talk show host there thank you so much for coming on to overnight America anytime I get it yeah he joins us on the quiver river electric came elects gas line well how about that how about that nationally speaking they don't take the time to look into a story but man that had mine looks great hmmm how often does that happen here in Saint Louis

Interview With Will Smith, Star Of Gemini Man, And Many Other Entertainment Projects
"My guess my guess is Academy Award nominated actor whose new film is called Gemini Ma'am Please Welcome Will Smith the the it's all we have time for it was worth it back to the show my friend I am so happy to be here good to see you you look happy yes I mean you always look happy but I'm honestly going you look happy yes this this this last year has probably been the best year of my adult life what does what when when people that then they normally mean like oh I got a raise or go to but you will Smith show as if will Smith says this has been the best job what were the other ones it's like why would you say that what does that mean you know own my own my fiftieth birthday I jumped out I did to bungee jumping helicopter over to Grand Canyon and the white people told you to do yes I remember that remember that it's why you need white friends that's true that is true so did the bungee out of the helicopter right but it was it was it was a bigger thing than that for me right I had painted myself into a little bit of a of a will smith corner right so there were there were things that because I had kids and because I was Smith there were things I couldn't say and things I couldn't do in certain projects I couldn't take and I sort of painted myself into a little bit of a fearful corner and that that sort of a moment where I told myself that's it I'm going to I'm going to do what I want I'm going to say what I want I'm GonNa live the way I want without the fear of somehow losing something that was precious I've created and I've I've vince more free and more joyous and more peaceful than in in a weird way I feel like that is the story of Gemini Man exactly is in the film you play the best assassin in the world right and you play this man and he goes you know what I'm done with the game the game's not done with you receive credit they send the younger version of you just to when kill you yes because that's the only person good enough yes because I'm so good the only way the meek get killed you have to be me the crazy concept while technology but and I know you've talked about that a lot but but I mean this this is another challenge I mean we've seen you seen you play all sides all types of characters we've seen you just be the only person in the movies you in a dog Yes yes and now you know I'm going to be me fighting against yeah I just don't need actors man it was about what's challenging about playing old will Smith and young girls in the same scene so you know what what is the host difficult part is like playing youth right so there's a naievety right youth and there's a look in in ones is when they really don't know right right but then as you get older there's like a certain thing that is it just gets in your in your blood and when you know things right so having to go back and play young like like it's like sex right you can't on Sex many times I want to show you let me say Hi so before you have sex before you have sex right so you have sex before you have said right right right right okay that's presets he said and then the first time you have sex it changes your back okay right in writing so as an as an actor is it actor you can't unring that bell you know rights so you have to really go back and I went back and I studied some old material which was try to find youthful naivety let me ask you this though you are will smith and I know this sounds like unflattering you but you know go with that full of vulnerability that comes with acknowledging that you are aging as will smith you know that that was a that was another part of the experience that I had like Carney fifty I've never I've never really thought about age and felt that that way but like lashing well I turned fifty five in front of it like the fact like forty was cooled thirty school like fifty was like whoa man we need to jump out a helicopter you're not really it hit me a little bit but the accepting being older and even for Gemini Man a lot of those things came up and previous life and you think about the Karma the mistakes you've made and what would you not do you know if you had known and all of those things came up but it but I've solved the problem I am I am having an absolute ball with my life right now one thing that has fascinated me about you for a long time you were an aw TV poor you will will Smith so we'll smooth we knew in private man you're at you're at and you in magazines and but we didn't know will Smith right right right all of a sudden we saw Wilson on Youtube we so wh Smith on instagram but we didn't we didn't see a curated will smith we saw will smith teasing his kid and having fun with them goofing around with Jada we see will smith going hey man I'm a human being there was also a mega stop but I'm a human being I feel I love I love I don't take myself that seriously rumor that that in of itself is a big chance and the steps to take as a person why do you why do you keep doing it so what would when I I was setting out to become a said I'm going to be the biggest movie star in the world and that was pre internet it was pre- social media life so during that time the idea was you couldn't be a movie star if you didn't maintain mystery gripe on it so the the common belief was nobody's going to go to a movie theater if they see you every day right so you would stay out and you would pain the mystery and the only time they get to see you is the fourth of July on the big screen right right so what happened was as social media came there was a there was a shift and I was trying to hold on for for a little while and I realized that the new mentality is Nobody's coming to the movie theater if they don't see you every day right people want to feel like they're friends they wanNA know so it's a completely different shift another thing happened for me with social media I was I was I had so many creative ideas. that were were dying on the vine inside of me God right so when you put out a movie Gemini Man might be two and a half years from the time we started until it comes oh so that's one piece of content in two and a half years but what social media is allowing me to do is all of those ideas and all of those concepts get to come out with your I was experiencing creative constipation right so the Internet has like laxative right stuff Eh let me let me ask you this before you go you know who said I was going I the EU will Smith but I am pleased to be that's that's like an immediate assumption you would have a person when you watch that movie but being a parent means you are a man you know you already have many to your kids what do you hope they will change in their lives while still maintaining what you've gotten to get you to this level you know from this this time and and doing and I man and looking at those questions came up and what what I really found is nobody can know for you typed people can know for themselves but they can't they can't know for you right I was making the decision when I graduated from high school between music and going to college and my mother said you'll you'll never make anything of yourself if you don't go to college right and you know that was that was true for her right it wasn't true for me right so I've learned and with my kids I got

"grand canyon" Discussed on Aerial America
"The surface of the earth has so many different forms shapes and colors that it's not hard to understand why early scientists had a hard time determining what what was responsible for creating and shaping our natural world in the early nineteenth century most european scientists believe that volcanoes and earthquakes were the primary forces that created the landscape around us from the highest mountains to the deepest valleys and the vast open spaces that lie in between <music> but in eighteen fifty eight an american geologist named john newbery changed that thinking after he arrived arrived in the grand canyon. He came surveying expedition for the u._s. Government at the time the grand canyon didn't didn't even appear on many maps it was part of the region written off simply as great unknown newbury was the first scientist i ever to descend down to the canyons floor once he said is on the colorado river and studied the colorful layers of rock that towered above him he proposed that the river itself and carve the canyon it was a radical theory for the middle of the nineteenth century it suggested did that it would have taken millions of years to carve the canyon which would mean that the earth had to be much much older than most people imagine today. Most scientists agree that newberry was right about how the canyon was formed. It all began about six. It's million years ago. When the colorado river. I began flowing down and out of the rocky mountains and started carving a path through the colorado plateau uh..

You are right in the grand canyon right now as you speak to us. Yes absolutely i'm looking out my window at these beautiful red towering walls and these <hes> lime mesa tops it from the bottom of the grand canyon here. The ground that i walk on is pretty much river silt so it's really beautiful and fantastic. Now the havasu pie tribe tribe is the only native american tribe that still lives below the rim of the grand canyon. Tell us a little bit about the history of the tribe there where you are or in the canyon. We are the only native american tribe that lives below the rim of the grand canyon. You are correct and they have a su- pie have been here here. Since time immemorial traditionally we had two areas where we lived where we live now in supine village was our summer home home. During the wintertime we lived in bands spread out on the south rim in the area now known as the grand canyon national park so we migrated between both areas and <hes> down here where we currently live <hes> is great land to grow crops and we would grow them down here through the spring and the summer we would keep the overabundance and bring the rest us up on the rim where we live with our families and probably hunt just a couple dear every year an and predominantly we had a vegetarian diet but when we had to go live on the south rim it's one we would request help and thank our animal friends for helping us live through the winter time and when was that disrupted well there are some stories in some books where we did meet some spanish conquistadors on the south rim and there's very little documentation and i wouldn't call that the first disruption i would say the first disruption is when the fred harvey railway everyone would remember it. It's the grand canyon railway and that group <hes> made their way to the south rim of the grand canyon <hes> <hes> discovered the area and by nineteen nineteen is when they had <hes> federally turned the area into grand canyon national park but in eighteen eighteen eighty there was a reservation that was set up correct in eighteen eighty they met then chief navajo and that was when we had already been hearing stories from displaced <hes> nations who had been coming to the grand canyon to hide <music> out essentially and we knew they were coming and we heard the stories that they were coming so when they got here we pretty much just put her hands up and said oh. We'll do what you have to say. Please let stay here in our land and they did they turned down here supine village allege into reservation but it was very small it was like a five miles by three miles and that original reservation avation didn't even include our world famous waterfalls that was later on given to grand canyon national park so as we now reach the one hundred.

Like, oh my God. He said that he hated cats and then a cat killed. I feel like every time we do show people get stuff, and they're like well now here it is. Here's the evidence of this.

"grand canyon" Discussed on One Shining Podcast with Titus and Tate
"And they kind of like have built a thing there were I remember the they've got a few home. I remember Louisville played there one year. And and it was like a blue the they gave Louisville game. I don't think they want. I think Louisville still want. But it was pretty good. It was like MAC when Louisville Patino was there, and they had good teams stuff. I love that you say that like it was so far removed. Back in the day when we Patino. Folks, you remember, I'm Emba? So I've I've been aware of the student the student's section, but it is unlike any other student's section in the country in that I I don't understand how this came about. And the only explanation and come up with his Colt. Like every other Kansas has a great student session. Indiana has a great student section Duke, obviously has a great student section. There are a lot of these schools with grace dunes action. They also have won national titles. They've like in the fifties. We'll not do. But they they've they're blue bloods, they've been around institutionalized. It's passed down. It's like, you're indoctrinated. You are going to be cut goat, Indiana. You're going to lose your fucking mind when they beat Purdue like this is this is part of who you are. Or you're gonna Bob night Luger mine choke somebody you'd never know. But Grand Canyon was like just suddenly someone snap their fingers in their like, let's just have a kick student section and basketball program in Univer. And it's it's a it was a four profit school apparently up until like last year or something. I don't I haven't figured out. Exactly how it all works. But there is there's some massive bag dropping going on there that. Has led to this? And that's why Grand Canyon university is my bad guys and the bad guy that you were pointing to in looking at was the man that the classic was named after that they were playing in. And that's Jerry, see Jerry Colangelo and Jerry Colangelo for people that don't know he is a I mean instrumental figure in all of college basketball, all of basketball at large really been going back to the sons and everything we're in his section. We had no idea what the sections completely empty. The game is about to start to see Tennessee, Gonzaga. This is at DJ, Jerry Colangelo. Classic Jerry Colangelo. Nowhere to be found. This is the start of the game. That's a bad guy moved not even don't even care about this game. He cares about his bag team Grand Canyon. Whatever we're in a section. We'll get kicked out by the Grand Canyon people do like Jerry sitting right here. Jay, we will be here in fifteen minutes. You know, kicked us out. It was the UCLA lady for money. Are you here? Steve Alford, so McGrane Kane. I'm actually how are you? Anyways, Jake Elijah doesn't even sit in that section. So she lied so just a bunch of random Grand Canyon. But they're gave them some shirts to wear Colangelo comes he sits basically by himself. We walked by him one time. I tried to look at them in the is didn't see anything of note just bags of cash through those eyeballs. Legacy. But I just wanted to put together Michelangelo theory for you. And this is one of my favorite theories that I've I've put out into the world of a few times. But maybe personally, I don't know if I've done on the podcast, Jerry Colangelo went to Illinois, I didn't know this play bass boat. Illinois, Illinois is not Jerry Colangelo. Classic. So I I don't know how that came about. But whatever areas go. When did he turn on Illinois? Mark titus. Had the answer two thousand five he turns on Illinois in two thousand five because he thought that debrum Luther head Roger Powell they're gonna win the title that was his team. He loved him. Loved Illinois basketball is like oh five you're gonna say he wanted them to beat Carolina because he's a Duke guy because he's in bed or is this going with this? Well, let's see what happens from there. So two thousand five this is in March, actually, April, let's say April second can't remember let's say April second two thousand five they lose the North Carolina type seventy five seventy Chaumet once player of the year. Jerry Jones says fuck that. So he says himself he's like never again will this happen to any team..

"That that interested me in your book a friend of mine who is on the grand canyon trust and obviously knows a lot about the cannon entity history read your book and he said that he thought you had done a lot of work on a mystery of the grand canyon journey the first journey that three men who had been part of the expedition one day decided to leave it and they walked away and they were never seen again and you did a lot of additional sort of detective work on that absolutely linda this remains one of the enduring mysteries of american western history you know these guys were on all together these were powered pick these tough mountain men he didn't pick military officers he didn't pick professional surveyors he got instinct he said did pick one little short guy with only one arm yeah right himself exactly but he pick picked these tough mountain guys who could be an attorney a brilliant brilliant choice because they just didn't know what they were gonna hit so he needed peop men who were adaptable and had good spirits and had seen stuff before so they went in and they did privations were were awful they're campsite caught on fired a couple of them caught on fire they ran out of virtually ran out of food offer coffee except for couple pounds of flour they couldn't hunt their hands were just blistered and cut up in their backs hurt i mean it was just a the clothes rotted off their bodies and they lost and so they were half naked it was a rough go and right towards the end of the grand canyon of course they didn't really know where the grand canyon was going to end three of that of their of their crew decided there was a little break in the rock and they had hit a just one more behead rapid i mean it so loud linda that you just can't hear yourself talking and they just i think it just you know they just said no more were done we're not gonna make it through there instead we are going to without any water containers with very little food they had some ammunition and and their guns they were gonna walk seventy five miles through the desert to a mormon settlement that they knew generally where it was so and there was no animosity when they left and they weren't cowards they just kind of you know they decided it had enough and this was a better option and they took off and nobody ever saw them again what do you happen to them i think i think i think that there are all kinds of theories that most prevalent and an indian chief acknowledged this that they were killed by indians and i think frankly what happened is these men turned up in this destitute desert area without any food without any animals and i think that indians came across them and i think that there was a big misunderstanding of some sort and and the men died at those things happen all the time and you can't really blame the indians for looking at you know where do these guys come from and what were they doing so that's probably what happened i mean there are some intriguing conspiracy theories about the mormons but there's no conclusive evidence really whatsoever about that and you know they certainly could have just died on their own to just run out of water bits and pieces of them were found no bits and pieces at all there was kind of rumor that somebody's one of the guys who stayed on the trip had given his pocket watch to one of them to take to bring to a sister and there's rumor that it would had floated somebody saw it somewhere but again this is the stuff of the tall tale west that same guy who had given the watch the other guy kept on there you know i in coverage felt so bad early that he had not encouraged three guys stay on the thirty years later he went to ride along the water where they had all been and he castrated himself out of guilt it was an incredible one of those things that researching and you find something like that and you go wow you don't expect it comes up and slaps you in the head this history that is not black and white i tell you let's just take a moment to to here from isabel who is calling in from brooklyn new york hi as abell tell us your story i'm my mind blowing from that last piece of history.

"The thing that opened up for darwin start talking about evolution so when powell went down the grand canyon and he started seeing these all sorts of changes he said he when he went down was like reading a book he read as he went he could see that there were great inland seas that had come over the the continent he could see these great tectonic things he could see all these really interesting things that were happening suggesting that the earth the earth that we see which seemed static and not changing it's not that way at all at changing all over the place so as a result of his trip going down there he invented the science of geo morphology which is really to look at how geologic activities shape the the contours of the the topography how rivers and uplifting and all that so no longer geology looked at in rocks but it was looked at on the surface and so that was a very big push that he made and and then the seed of all of this of course has what talk about later led to his really really revolutionary ideas about sustainability and climate now when we think about the grand canyon now we have obviously you can fly over it you can you can walk into it it's is somewhat tame although not entirely dame seeing the canyon hole was something that had never happened and to some extent john wesley powell was able to to bring that out of the canyon with him absolutely so you know come kista doors hundreds and hundreds of the first north europeans to the continent had come up to the lipid looked in it and turned away in horror and said nobody wants to go you're it's a place where nothing good can happen and that was pretty much the feeling by everybody generally up till powell's day and and up into powell and powell so on his second expedition powell brought in photographers later he would bring a very famous landscape painter to the canyon he in his writings he started to change and was the real linchpin in changing this idea that the grand canyon which was not a horrible place that would eat you alive to be shunned but in fact it was this extraordinary thing it was really part of american exceptionalism it was i contact he really change that so that and that's kind of what my title tease out the promise of the grand canyon that it kind of unlocked the grand canyon and it really helped america understand who it was now who actually had you said the keystone toys looked over the rim and thought never not not going there but what about the indians who lived in the canyon there must have been in prehistory and even up until the time that that people like powell intervened into the canyon they must have been lots of indian explores mr been people who live there and they knew the canyon i'm i am i right absolutely linda you know so we went down one of the surprises where at certain points you know not in the inner enter canyon but in a lot of other points he found signs of indian habitat defined you know pottery and painting and and some habitation you know some rock set up and and in house housebroken house formations and things like that so no there had been people who had pushed in certainly the native americans had been in there i think during some different climate times but it's tough down there and another thing that he found out as the native americans down there out to that the game that he expected to kind of supplement his dia was not really available so it's a pretty you know it's all rock and water and open to flash floods and all sorts of heat and terrible winds and it's not a it's not a place that you know this you would think about moving you know but as people who thought it was dangerous were were actually quite right it was dangerous and i suppose depending on where you go into it still is i wonder one of the things.

"Of adventure follow us on twitter and find us on facebook at on point radio my guest today is john f ross his book is the promise of the grand canyon john wesley powell's perilous journey and his vision for the american west and you get a like this caller who has just who is reached out to us from brooking south dakota ginny hello hello my name is jeanie jeanie could you just tell us about about your connection to the canyon yes my great grandfather was stephen van devere jones who was part of the second expedition of the colorado river they started at green river wyoming and went through the canyon and on the colorado river he was topographers he got connected with them first because he was a schoolteacher principle of school in washburn illinois with a h thompson who was john powell's brotherinlaw and he said my grandfather great grandfather was good at math and good mapping so he could be part of this second expedition which is the one that got was credited with the more scientific longlasting measurements and things that with the canyon for moyo things the reason that that john wesley powell's equipment was lost when one of their boats was smashed bits so what kind of thing did did you great grandfather safe from that day well his he lost the boat i think the first expedition yes there were three three and my great grandfather was the the head of the second both nellie powell at any rate he the things we took to the grand canyon museum in march were bag of his that held all of this equipment collection of his surveying instruments know protracted compass things that looked to ruler that looked like it was from ira celluloid crow tractor we took a couple of booklets of his that he had begun with paper still in a mapping that maps that he begin drying we also took some moccasins that he had traded with native americans that they met along the way his diary is in the new york public library and some of his translations of the piat language are in the smithsonian museum of natural history well no i guess my i just want the second expe addition to get some credit to obsolete well you're a you're quite right and we're very glad that you called privilege the privilege to hear to hear from someone who is directly connected john ross you you you wrote about the second expedition and the fact that it happened and also the fact is i believe that it just didn't get the kind of attention that it really deserve to get well you know it's interesting linda thank you great to hear that story from the collar because the second expedition actually was the real one that got important science done at the end of the first one which will get into more i guess you know he came out he was alive he was a hero and he could rest on his laurels but secretly in his heart of hearts john wesley powell knew that the first expedition had been a failure i mean he got out alive certainly but he lost all his maps he had lost all his readings he had broken all his barometers and he was not happy so what did he do we turned around and set up an expedition to go right back and do it right because that was what had drawn him not the heroism of going through the canyon but really the opportunity to you know describe this extraordinary and scientists this extrordinary feature in a north american what what do you think when he when he finally came out of the canyon that first time and before he went on the more as you say the more sort of rational version of his expedition what do you think was the most important finding of this journey what did he learn that he didn't know well you know you gotta remember at that time that geology was kind of the particle physics of the day it was exploding all sorts of traditions and barriers people generally thought that the world was about six thousand years old in the early nineteenth century and here were people beginning to talk about it being many tens of millions years old and that was.

"And they're doing it because this is a neat thing to try to do together on their honeymoon that's that's the reality of it not you know kind of this gold deke thing that that kind of grew up as part of the legend over the years yet in this one thing even says uh it was sugaring book deals lecture circuits and possibly even a vaudeville play yeah and that's i mean still to this day like if you see sources irs read a bright ups about this mystery that's almost across the board had people characterize it and part of the reason why they do is because brad denmark in his two thousand one book um characterized it the exact same way but in that in that boatmen's quarterly or boatmen's review um he he lifts was published in 2003 so he must have just wanted to start because he found this thing with algiere he blood without yes and he said that it confirmed like a nagging suspicions head any he didn't just make it up he didn't just take a campfire ledger yet publish that the problem was his there is a there is a source that he used his main source was a guy named a otis doc marston and he basically made this exhaustive history of the grand canyon and i believe the green kenyir the colorado river but i think it was the green came as a whole and he dedicated a chapter to um uh the hides and he interviewed people but he was interviewing people like thirty years on and in his collection of notes there's a there's a note from an eyewitness that says that they said that they were seeking fortune and fame or thinking about tate mate writing a book in taking it on a lecture circuit and that's where that whole legend came from so this isn't necessarily like a huge thing like the mystery doesn't turn on this it's more like a lesson for historians and people who who use historians is sources that it can still be got wrongly legends can still pervade into even official histories of things to and you gotta take this over the green assault yen so shout out to denmark's a book sunk without a sound colon i was gonna michael.
