I Saw it on Vacation - Week 31 - Sept 14

This is the last weekly post for "I Saw it on Vacation". The I Saw it on Vacation page will continue to be a part of this blog and I think it will be easier for all of us if we can link-up in one spot.

What have you seen on Vacation? This page on my blog is a place for kids and adults to learn about geography. Many of us have been to exciting places and seen unique things. Let us dream about future vacations while we learn more about our world!

Corn fields in Iowa, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Sleeping Bear Dunes in Michigan, grizzly bears in Alaska…….monuments, landmarks, national parks, geographical features of any type are fair game. It doesn’t even really need to be a vacation. Your post could be about your local climate, or the traditions of your region. If the post shows photos of mountains and big horn sheep in Colorado, or explains hurricanes in the south it’s applicable. Just make sure it is kid-friendly and geography related.

Feel free to link-up a post you've already written and comment on the posts of others! Please link your post to the I Saw it on Vacation page. I’m excited to see what you have seen!

These men are playing traditional German Hunting Horns and wearing hunting green. The horns are simple and do not have any valves. Different notes are played by the varying air pressure and speed created by the blower. Hunting horns were used for entertainment and as the communication method for the hunting party. Many signals could be played on the horn such as slow down or speed up. Dogs were trained to answer to the horns and there was a signal for each hunted animal.
