Posts From The Road: Fish Creek Falls

Photo by Gary Warren/ladailypost.com By GARY WARRENPhotographerFormerly of Los AlamosWhen visiting Steamboat Springs, Colo., it is easy to be drawn to the many downtown activities, shops, and restaurants. In the winter, life centers around skiing and snow boarding in this mountain town.However, Steamboat Springs  is also known for its natural beauty. There are miles of trails for hiking and biking and the Yampa River running just a block off of the main street through town offers fishing and other water activities.Fish Creek Falls less than five miles from downtown up a paved road and is perhaps the most popular hike in town. We have visited the area several times but had never taken time to view the falls until a recent visit. There are two falls, a lower falls and upper falls. On this visit, we chose to view the lower falls and we were not disappointed. The ideal time to view a water fall in this part of the country would be early summer shortly after the snow melts but Fish Creek Falls flows year-round.Editor’s note: Longtime Los Alamos photographer Gary Warren and his wife Marilyn are traveling around the country and he shares his photographs, which appear in the ‘Posts from the Road’ series published in the Sunday edition of the Los Alamos Daily Post.

Water from several mountain lakes in the Rabbit Ears Range flow into Fish Creek.

The river also reveals thousands of rocks and boulders, which have traveled through the creek carried by the rushing waters.

ABS awards AIP for Brevik’s LNG containment system

first_imgImages: Brevik Technology ABS, a provider of maritime shipping and offshore classification services, has granted approval in principle to a new gas containment system concept designed in Norway by Brevik Technology.The containment system uses a series of independent, cylindrical IMO Type-B tanks and for the AIP was designed for application in a gas carrier of 30,000 cbm, the classification society said in a statement.In granting the AIP, ABS assessed the concept against the requirements of the International Gas Code, ABS Rules and the ABS Guide for Liquefied Gas Carriers with Independent Tanks. Since the tank design is a novel concept, a HAZID study was also performed.The AIP marks the initial approval for the tank concept and could be followed by a general design approval upon completion of a vessel’s detailed design. Final approval would involve a vessel-specific shipbuilding project, ABS said.The tank design was created by Brevik Technology, a VARD affiliate company, with the intention of lowering the cost of construction for LNG and LPG carriers while providing a solution for the small-scale transport of gas.“In creating the design, it was emphasized that no thermal induced forces were transferred from the ship to the tank and vice versa due to temperature variations,” says Øystein Kristoffersen Sæther, Managing Director, Vard Engineering Brevik. “The use of a cylindrical tank also means that the potential for damage from sloshing is low.”Brevik is in discussions with shipowners and yards for a vessel design concept including the Type B tank, which it estimates could be between 15 to 20 percent less expensive to construct than a membrane containment system for a ship of this size.last_img read more
