Description

I had picked up a trail map from the ranger station that morning. On the map there was symbol at a checkpoint along my hike that I could not interpret. In hindsight the symbol seems obvious, but for the life of me I couldn't make sense of it until I arrived. Where I found a large shooting range. The place was an absolute mess and it seemed strange place to have a shooting range. It was extremely dry nothing but chaparral all around and the location was situation on the top of the ridge. There was signage telling users that the facility was closed to dangerous conditions. Still among the ruins were televisions, spray cans, tons of glass, and even a couple propane cans.

Description

Every year, in mid-July, large numbers of humans, of both sexes and multiple age classes, congregate at select river mouths in the Upper Cook Inlet, Kenai Peninsula. The species is in pursuit of readily available protein in the form of hundreds of thousands of sockeye salmon. Experts label this annual congregation, the PU Fishery, and it is associated with several other species, including members of the Larus genus (gulls) and Diptera order (flies and mosquitos). Increasingly, this concentration of people represents a seasonal migration from the Anchorage metro area to the Central Peninsula. Local monitors of human behavior (i.e., newspaper journalists) have suggested the migration represents a doubling of the resident population, and subsidizes the amount of biological waste and other refuse present in local habitats. Resident humans have been observed complaining about displacement on movement corridors and practicing avoidance behavior during peak migration times. Other residents appear to mix readily with immigrant humans, although the extent to which genetic intermixing occurs during this period is currently unknown.

Description from Wikipedia

Homo sapiens (Latin: "wise man") is the scientific name for the human species. Homo is the human genus, which also includes Neanderthals and many other extinct species of hominid; H. sapiens is the only surviving species of the genus Homo. Modern humans are the subspecies Homo sapiens sapiens, which differentiates them from what has been argued to be their direct ancestor, Homo sapiens idaltu.
