Ąžuolų Alėja – istorinė plantacija – Silvija Travel Tips

Plantacija “Ąžuolų alėja” (Oak Alley Plantation),
įsikūrusi vakariniame Misisipės upės krante Luisianoje, JAV . Ąžuolų alėja įrėminta įspūdingais, galingais, didingais tris šimtmečius skaiciujančiais ąžuolais. Jų šakos kaip tunelis gaubia visą taką , o šaknys tarsi medžio skulptūros išsiraizgiusios žemės paviršiuje. Tai istorinė plantacija,primenanti labai sunkius ir paslaptingus vergovės laikus. Dėl puikaus kraštovaizdžio ši mėgiama lankytojų vieta taip pat yra puiki vieta įvairių filmų kūrimui.

Tai bent liūtis ! Flagstaff, Arizona – Silvija Travel Tips

Dar nematytas lietaus su ledais pliūpsnis iš dangaus ! Tiesiog per keletą minučių karšta vasaros diena pavirto vos ne Kalėdomis. Pažliugęs sniegas padengė viską aplinkui, o vandens upeliai srauniai bėgo žemyn, kur susidarė gana didoki telkiniai. Pylė kaip iš kibiro!
