Mount Zion Cemetery situated near 27th and Q Streets NW in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Locations in 1975.

Through the National Park Service:
&quotThe Mount Zion Cemetery is composed of two separate adjacent cemeteries, the old Methodist Burying Ground and the Female Union Band Society Graveyard. The two cemeteries equally share the 3 acres of land. There is no fence or other visible demarcation separating the two cemeteries which more than time have turn out to be identified as the Mount Zion Cemetery. The Mount Zion Cemetery is a physical reminder of African American life and the evolving free black culture in the District of Columbia from the earliest days of the city to the present.

The land for the Old Methodist Episcopal Burying Ground was bought in 1808 by the Dumbarton Street Methodist Episcopal Church. The membership of the Dumbarton Street M.E. Church was fifty percent black, consisting of both free blacks and slaves. At the time, Georgetown was about thirty % African American. In 1816 the black members of the Dumbarton Street M.E. Church formed the Mount Zion Methodist Church. Sooner or later the Mount Zion Methodist Church took more than the cemetery in 1879. The Female Union Band Society was a cooperative benevolent society of free black women whose members had been pledged to help one particular yet another in sickness and in death. The society was produced in 1842 and purchased the land for the burial ground that year. Mt. Zion Cemetery illustrates the substantial contribution of African Americans to the improvement of Georgetown and the perform of an early benevolent society organized by black girls for their own advantage. The cemetery fell into neglect and disrepair till 1976 when volunteer workers below the path of the Afro-American Bicentennial Corporation cleared away underbrush, trash, and ground cover.&quot

Colorado – Rocky Mountain National Park: Forest Canyon Overlook

Image by wallyg
The tundra patterns, scattered rocks that form &quotpatterned ground&quot are identified in Arctic and Alpine regions where temperatures remain below freezing at least 5 months every year. In the course of the last Ice Age, freezing and thawing of the tundra topsoil forced these patterns to the surface. Some patterned ground has indistinct types although other individuals are precise circles or other types. The degree of slope determines the rock patterns. Rock streams &quotflow&quot downhill, whilst polygons and circles type of level surfaces.

Forest Canyon Overlook, a short 1/8 mile paved trail along Trail Ridge Road, crosses the tundra–a Russian word for &quotland of no trees.&quot In the tundra, above the treeline, winds frequently exceed one hundred miles per hour and temperatures remain beneath freezing for at least five months every year.

The subalpine forest ecosystem of Forest Canyon is abundant with life. Challenging to access by means of fallen trees and steep terrain, Forest Canyon furnishes protected habitat for hundreds of plant and animal species–from elk herds to microorganisms.
