Yuma Historic River Crossing
Arizona

Wikipedia: Today, Yuma Crossing National Heritage Area, Yuma Quartermaster Depot State Historic Park (formerly known as Yuma Crossing State Historic Park), and sites including Yuma Territorial Prison showcase a captivating history amidst the beautiful Yuma East and West Wetlands and the silhouetted backdrops of the Chocolate and Castle Dome ranges of Arizona and California.

The heritage area’s interpretive themes include Yuma’s importance as a cultural crossroads, emphasizing the region’s intersection of three major cultures: Anglo, Hispanic, and Native American. The heritage area recognizes that this rich blend of traditions can best be sustained by their continued expression through architecture, music, food and other folkways within the heritage area.

The heritage area has championed a multiyear, multimillion-dollar endeavor to restore habitat and water flow to the East Wetlands. In 2004, heritage area partners secured a Clean Water Act permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to begin restoration work. More than 200 acres (0.81 km2) of nonnative vegetation have been cleared and more than 130 acres (0.53 km2) have been replanted with cottonwood, willow, mesquite, native grasses, and Palo Verde trees. A one-mile (1.6 km) length of back channel has also been excavated, and some 20,000 new trees were planted in 2006. To date, ten different funding sources have provided almost $6 million toward the eventual goal of $18–20 million to complete the project.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
