LanYong Bridge 蘭陽大橋上游匯流處
Taiwan
(fromhttp://www.lanyangnet.com.tw/bridge/html/link2.htm , http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E8%98%AD%E9%99%BD%E6%BA%AA ) 舊橋設立於日據時代,以前的橋墩是鐵公路共用,現在車輛行駛的蘭陽大橋是後來再建的,橋面為六線道;當初的舊橋並未拆除,若由南向北行經此橋,可在右手方向看到舊的橋面。蘭陽大橋是橫跨蘭陽溪兩端最重要的橋樑,也是台九省道所經之處,每當蘭陽地區舉辦活動時,橋面上旗海飛揚的盛,形成非常獨特的景觀。 蘭陽溪,舊名宜蘭濁水溪,位於台灣東北部蘭陽平原,屬於中央管河川,是宜蘭縣最主要的河川。主流全長73公里,主遊河段名為耶克糾溪,發源於宜蘭縣、台中市交界處的南湖北山。向西北流至米磨登附近,匯集馬當溪、米磨登溪後,始稱蘭陽溪。此後河道大致沿東北方向,在貫穿大同鄉全境並從牛鬥附近進入蘭陽平原後,依序流經三星鄉、員山鄉、五結鄉、宜蘭市及壯圍鄉,並在入海口不遠處的噶瑪蘭大橋附近,與最重要的兩大支流-宜蘭河及冬山河會合後注入太平洋。 除了宜蘭河和冬山河外,蘭陽溪的支流還有羅東溪、清水溪、粗坑溪、芃芃溪等,其中主流以北的支流發源於雪山山脈;以南則發源於中央山脈。包括支流在內的蘭陽溪流域,幾乎涵蓋宜蘭所有鄉鎮市,面積達978平方公里,其中山地面積有652平方公里,平地面積則佔了326平方公里。[1]

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
