Happy National Park Week! We celebrate "Park Stars" Mystical southern night sky from Ofu Island! We get a brighter, richer view of the Milky Way in the southern hemisphere due to our location on the globe. Earth is part of the Milky Way Galaxy. It is our home! Because we are part of this galaxy, when we look up into the night sky, we are looking at it on-edge, thus it appears as a whitish band across the sky. It's as if we held a round hand mirror at arms length and then turned the mirror to the right or left, we would then see only its straight edge. Some groups of stars called constellations have been given fanciful names like the Big Dipper or Orion the Hunter. Several of these constellations provide important navigational guides to travelers, including the early Polynesians who crossed vast expanses of open ocean. But one key reference point is missing in the southern sky-there is no South Pole Star to act as a compass point like there is a North Pole Star (Polaris) in the northern hemisphere, so an important southern constellation is the Southern Cross (sumu). #FindYourPark #SailiLouPaka #NPWest #NPS101 #IYOR2018

The winter that keeps on giving, no matter the tease of spring. Snow in the mountains.

Yosemite Valley Chapel was build as a non-denominational church in 1879. It is the oldest building standing in the valley and looks beautiful covered in snow. Yosemite in the winter is quite a different experience than in the summer. . . . . #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitenps #yosemitechapel #blizzard #snowstorm #yosemitevalley #npwest
Some pics of Ruby Falls. One in the winter, one in the summer, the trail to Ruby (Stevens Canyon Rd.) and the amount of snowfall on SCR as of spring. If you don't ski or get out for winter you just don't realize how much snowfall Paradise gets. Last year the average snowfall was 58.5 feet. The record in 1971-72 was 93.5 feet! . . #mrnp #nps #npwest #findyourpark #findyourselfoutside #mountrainiernps #mountrainiernationalpark #visitrainier #visitpnw #friendsoftahoma #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #chasingwaterfalls #waterfallhike #waterfallfordays #waterfallwednesday #rubyfalls #northwestnature #naturelover #natureaddict #cascadiaexplored #choosemountains #sheisnotlost #sheexplores #herpnwlife #thatpnwlife #thenwadventure #wanderwashington #exploreWashington #herwanderfullife

Where the land meets the sea is where you will find me.
I love the journey hiking or in this case snowshoeing takes me on. And all it takes is just one step after another. I read in a guide book how females should be cautious about sketchy people on the trail and to never disclose your destination. I guess I'm the sketchy one on the trail because I am always asking people where they are going. This trail will take you up to Camp Muir if you so desire. . . #pnw #pacificnorthwest #onlyinwashington #northwestnature #naturelover #natureaddict #outdoorlife #pnwparadise #pnwroamers #mrnp #mountrainiernationalpark #mountrainiernps #mountrainier #visitrainier #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #nationalparks #nps #npwest #findyourselfoutside #herpnwlife #thatpnwlife #thenwadventure #hikevibes #womenwhoexplore #sheisnotlost #sheadventures #stayandwander #choosemountains #cascadiaexplored

Clear sunshiny days plus winter are the best. Keep them coming! I have memories of coming here in the winter freezing my butt off feeling like why do I do this. Well, today was not one of those days. I was peeling layers off soaking up the vitamin D while getting a nice workout. So much love for this mountain!

Last light in the winter wonderland that is Lofoten, Norway. The last few days of travel have been stressful: delay after delay, 5 days of lost luggage & it gets chilly up in the mountains without the proper clothes or any gear. But the mountains have a way of putting things in perspective, & after a long trail run through the changing of seasons in Patagonia (& a healthy pour of whisky 😳) I'm just going to go with it - after all, it's part of the travel game. Also, thanks for letting me vent, friends. Headed to the mountains, iPhone strapped to my head & all ✌🏻 Please follow me: @hikingloversx Via: @christinhealey
