The glowing red lava of Kilauea Iki crater illuminates the clouds above it. Kilauea is currently an active shield volcano. The name, Kilauea, meant spewing which is exactly what happened in 1959 when Kilauea Iki last erupted. This picture doesn't do justice to how incredible it is to see the gateway to the heart of the earth. I need to upgrade my camera. I'm outgrown my elementary dslr now. 🌋 #volcano #kilauea #crater #shield #geology #illumination #bigislandhawaii #hawaii #optoutside #nps #findyourpark #nationalparkservice #geology #naturephotography #saturday #adventurephotography #hiking #rei1440project #sweatydirtyhappy #hikeitbaby #neverstopexploring #theglobewanderer #staywild #exploremore #earnyourturns #latergram #simplyadventure #natgeotravelpic #gohiking #adventurethatislife #modernhiker
It was a Rare Snow Day in Joshua Tree. The weather was dramatic, and so is this government shutdown. Our national parks need to be maintained and protected! Who is with me?
Surrounded by Giant boulders, this is where we camped last night.
The clouds were rolling deep this afternoon on the Colorado Desert Region of Joshua Tree NP.
"Our common country is in great peril, demanding the loftiest views, and boldest action to bring it speedy relief. Once relieved, its form of government is saved to the world; its beloved history, and cherished memories, are vindicated; and its happy future fully assured, and rendered inconceivably grand." #AbrahamLincoln --July 12, 1862 Appeal to Border States Representatives 🎩🇺🇸❤ #Truth Amazing evening in DC with @shanmoeck Flat Hat to Flat Hat.

Today we hiked and explored and breathed deep.  Such clean air and super clean snow!  Today was our second hike at Effigy Mounds and as we left the mountain we were excited to turn in Gideon’s Junior Ranger booklet in which he has completed 6 activities.  More than enough to earn his Junior Ranger badge for Effigy Mounds.  However.  No badge for baby today because the ranger station was closed.  The ranger station was closed because…  Government shutdown. -_- Beyond getting Gideon’s badge, we were also hoping to learn more about the people who built the mounds.  We didn’t read through everything in the Visitor Center yesterday because we took for granted that we would be able to explore the station today.  That was a mistake. Don’t take our public lands for granted. Don’t promise yourself a visit and never get around to it.  Don’t deny yourself or your kiddos the valuable lessons on nature and history and region that come with a visit.  Not to mention the excellent opportunities for moving ones body.  Just… go.

Last time we experienced a federal government shutdown I was hiking in The Narrows of Zion National Park in the Fall of 2013, a truly transcendent plot of Earth. I’ll never forget the surreallness of being vacated from public land and the empathy I felt for families grappling with the notion that their travels were usurped by petty politics and vested interests, especially the families from abroad who couldn’t quite understand The US government had ‘run out of money’. My thoughts go out to all those currently visiting our wild and protected places that are now seemingly adrift until people in power attempt to resolve their ideological differences. My favorite part about spending time in the #Wild is the disconnect from our modern trappings and the freeness that only these spaces can provide. “We who are gathered here may represent a particularly elite, not of money and power, but of concern for the earth for the earth’s sake.” -Ansel Adams #keepitpublic #everyoneoutside #zionnationalpark #findyourpark #ourwild #theoutbound #keepitwild #nationalparkservice #voteourplanet
Snow Day in Joshua Tree ❄😀
Really couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day! This place gets better and better every time I visit. 💕

I appreciate photographers and other explorers who are determined to find new places to discover. But when I stood here in 2014 to photograph this place, I realized there is a good reason so many travel so far to visit places like Acadia. Thank you to those before me who discovered and preserved these wonders. Thank you for those who continue to explore. And thank you to our creator who appointed us stewards of these places. #acadia #nationalpark #acadianationalpark #nationalparkservice #maine #findyourway #adventures #discovermaine #travelmaine #outdoorlife #goneoutdoors #exploremore #picoftheday #landscape #shoreline #ocean #sea #naturephotography #instadaily #newengland #ignewengland #visitnewengland #eastcoast #outdoors #trip #landscapelovers #naturephotography #bassharborlighthouse #lighthouse #bassharbor
Camping at Indian Cove - Joshua Tree NP
A few parting shots from Lone Pine CA. Bright and early start into Death Valley tomorrow. I hope the name is just a ploy. #themountco #vanlife #chimani #lonepine #deathvalleynationalpark #nationalparkservice #nationalparks #howsthejournal
And #4 is Ford Canyon. Today was my first longer hike of the year. Not a whole lot of elevation change, but it did seem like it was all in the same couple hundred feet. A little bit of rock jumping and climbing involved. Took out @traveling_mcwilbury 's pitbull Cooper and man, dude could outclimb me. Of course ended with some well deserved In-n-out. I love #arizona #52hikechallenge #hiking
‪ Mr. R. Reagan here, came to our rescue for our planned trip to the Dry Tortugas National Park today. He decided to show up and work today despite the #GovtShutdown - thanks for being there for us, unlike some others... #GOPShutdown #shutdown #shutdown2018 #NationalParkService
A sprinkle of Magic in Joshua Tree. This was rare to see. We were so lucky to have seen some snow❄ in the desert today.🌵
Of course we decided to go to a national park on the day the federal government shuts down. It was still fantastic and I hope the National Park Service gets to go back to work soon. Their hard work shows in all the sites at the LBJ Ranch. #texaswhitehouse #lbj #lbjranch #nationalparkservice #historicpreservation #johnsoncitytx #stonewalltx

#Overheard by @kimsrogers as she observed “the overweight, sweats-wearing, Big Gulp-slurping, winter-boot-dragging woman in the library, not bothering to lower her voice.” . #Mahalo , @kimsrogers ! Follow @kimsrogers and learn lots of things. Plus, she lives on Kauai - her photos are gorgeous! . My parents’ community has rules. So. Many. Rules. Dad ignored the rules a couple of years ago and planted these daffodils in sunny protest. Sometimes we protest simply by growing. . #resist #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #yosemite #grandtetons #the59parks #biggulp #vote #stablegenius #womensmarch #winter #daffodils #library #shutdown #loudandproud . #overheardbysherilynwrites589 Photo by @sherilynwrites . . . #overheardbysherilynwrites #quote #quoteoftheday #qotd #quotes #quotestoliveby #quotesoftheday #quotestagram #truequotes #quotesdaily #instadaily #photogram .
Protecting our natural world is a delicate balance but the scales need to always tip in favor of nature to keep "our" lives in balance. ••••••• Thank you Greg @greg_probst for the perfect shot. ------- Balanced boulders, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Arizona. #fineartprints #fineartphoto #filmisalive #filmisnotdead #glencanyon #glencanyonnationalrecreationarea #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #nationalparkphotography #explorearizona #fineartprints #fineartphotography #fineartphoto #remoteplaces #coolgeology #coolplaces #landscapelovers #landscapephoto #linhof #4x5film #4x5photography #americansouthwest ------- #nationalparkgeek
Back in Colorado this weekend with my mom to visit my brother's family! 💖 This image is a throwback from June when Sonny and I hiked at Rocky Mountain National Park and were so stoked to see a little snow. And so I'm just thrilled the forecast tomorrow includes up to 8" of snow! I'll probably be posting too many snow photos on my ig stories, so apologies in advance. ❄ • • • • • #travelswithsonny #wanderlust #liveauthentic #riptravels #travels #travelbug #exploretheworld #exploreeverything #travelmore #nps #nationalparkservice #the59parks #traveltuesday #findyourpark #igersco #igerscolorado #rmnp #rockymountainnationalpark
Hiking around @thenatcheztrace today enjoying the warm weather. #trumpshutdown meant all the bathrooms were closed along the way, but we survived ;) #peeinthewoods

Sunday's cover story: Guests to Jamestown Visitor Center were greeted Saturday with a note displayed on the doors stating the National Park Service will not operate parks or provide visitor services during the government shutdown period.
