American journey /Monterey in summer

 Monterey in summer is filled with bright sunlight. I went round this towns with my daughter by bicycle.She hates a sunburn, but I like it.  It’s off the subject but the preference of the Japanese woman seems to be slightly abnormal. For example, they love slim bodies below the average, and abnormal hatred for the sunburn. In this ground where races of the world gather, how do people see it?


In this warm ground among the blue seas, the people seem to enjoy the life as they are.


Here is foreign scenery obviously, but I feel nostalgia . Here is one of my favorite places in this town.


The downtown overflows in a Mexican atmosphere.


The look of the town among flowers is pretty and stylish.


The wedding ceremony of local people was held backed by the beautiful shoreline.My daughter cried unintentionally; such "I also want the wedding ceremony like this!"


A seal did a wedding ceremony at the neighboring shore. No, be having a nap?


We drove route 1 after this.I came here many times, but the scene here does not get tired in me.

American Journey / Grand Canyon in summer

 It was the first time that I visit here in summer. In this summer, the heat wave attacked the southwestern part of US. However, summer Grand Canyon was mysterious without changing.


I heared to invite me to from the bottom of the earth carved like a sculpture.


Many people gathered at the Mather point.Here is always a popular view spot.


I saw the surface of the Colorado river subtly. It was dark brown in the summer,though it was green in winter.


I challenged Bright Angel Trail this time also. In the summertime, it is the fight with heat and thirst. I get tired in comparison with the winter.Becouse the temperature exceeded 100℉, and the wind was very dry.


It was interesting that the color of the stratum changes as I went down in the bottom of the earth.


The sense falling in the bottom of the earth recalled me to an SF film.


The way to the Indian garden was steep.


The weather of Grand Canyon was variable. It was clouded suddenly, and thunder roared in the valley, and a shower fell and also light shined.I always could look fantastic scenery here.


When I passed 3 Miles Rest Houses and went down a little, I saw an Indian garden. I wanted to go to this point, but unfortunately, in consideration of the physical strength of the return, I decided to return here.


3 Miles Rest Houses. I could obtain enough water here and was saved very much.I was able to get water in here and 1.5 Miles Rest Houses.I drank water of 3L on that day.


I have visited Grand Canyon four times, even so I watched the Mule deer having a so big corner for the first time.


I decided to stay at Williams tonight. This town is the stage of the Route 66 here.This town is also the starting station of the train following the Grand Canyon.I must drive the whole course of 700mile tomorrow from here to San Jose.

Many events were organized and sponsored by civic groups, and one of the highlight events used to be the selection of the Cherry Blossom Princess from every state.


Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.


Moon Rock.I could touch it!

Wright Flyer.
It is still about 1903 that the Wright brothers completed the first airplane.While it was short, the space aerodromics greatly developed. There is armaments competition in the background.


Spitfire.Following the Battle of Britain in 1940, the Royal Air Force had planned to replace its Spitfire Mk. I and II fighters with the Mk. III, which had been under development for two years. The Mk. III included significant improvements such as an improved wing design, a retractable tail wheel and a new Rolls-Royce Merlin XX engine.

Ohka Model22 called BAKA in the US Armed Force. It has been japanese sad history.


Ohka was deveroped for excrusive use of the spesial attack.


Shiden Kai called "Gerge". The Shiden Kai was considerably better than the Japanese Navy's most common fighter, the A6M Zero. With a top speed of 369 mph, the N1K2 was about 20 mph faster than the A6M Zero. The heavier Shiden Kai also possessed surprisingly good maneuverability due to a mercury switch that automatically extended the flaps during turns. These "combat" flaps created more lift, thereby allowing tighter turns. Moreover, its four 20 mm automatic cannon provided greatly increased firepower than earlier Japanese designs. Unlike the A6M Zero, the Shiden Kai could compete against the best late-war U.S. Navy and U.S. Army Air Forces fighters.


Messerschmitt 109. The Messerschmitt 109 was Nazi Germany's primary fighter plane in the Battle of Britain. The Messerschmitt 109 was a worthy adversary to the Spitfire and Hurricane.
