Desert vibes in Joshua Tree National Park with @wanderingsoulmates. Hoping the park closures and Govt shutdown ends soon! #notyouraveragecouple @not.your.average.couple to be featured
Here’s hoping our national parks reopen soon! This is my favorite photo from Joshua Tree. Just after sunset with the full moon at the Jumbo Rocks campsite. This is part of a panorama which I will post in my story if you want to see. . . . . . #joshuatree #nationalpark #jumborocks #joshuatreenationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #ilovejoshuatree #nationalparkgeek #beautifuldestinations #weliketotravel #destination_wow #itsamazingoutthere #fantastic_earth #earthpix #earthofficial #colors_of_day #goparks #california #ig_naturelovers @nikonusa #natgeoyourshot #nikond850

Waterfall Wednesday - Granite Lake Waterfall II. Welcome to Waterfall Wednesday - Gunsight Lake I could just barely see this waterfall from the eastern end of Gunsight Lake and my backcountry camp, but I knew it was impressive. It was on my hit list the next morning. After spooking two large bull moose near the bridge, seeing two mountain goats on the bluff above me, I finally made it to the western shores of Gunsight Lake. The effort was worth it as I gained elevation to position about mid slope at the 6,000 foot level on the slope at 48.626059,-113.727829 for this photo. The cool mist rolled over me as I took a mid-morning nap before setting back to camp and the 6.3 mile hike to the trailhead. FOLLOW ME into tomorrow from a flower photo from the vault for Throwback Thursday. #waterfallphotography #waterfallcountry #waterfallfordays #waterfalling #waterfallsofinstagram #waterfallwednesday #waterfall_lover #waterfallhike #waterfallchasing #glacier #montana #glaciernationalpark #glacier_national_park #nationalparkservice #nps #visitmontana #glaciernps #montana #glaciermt #hikingglacier #adventurestream #idahoadventures #discoverearth #lifeofadventure #getoutside #naturephotography #adventurephotography #mustgetoutdoors #clearwaterphotoandvideo #brentdclark

Change is coming. I have wrestled with the idea of expanding 1837 into more than just stickers (and a patch) for sometime now, and have finally decided to commit to that idea. That is why there hasn’t been much activity both in new stickers, or on social media. Regardless of any changes however, one thing will always remain - proceeds will be donated to our National Parks. See you soon.✌️ • • • Proceeds from every purchase go to the National Park Service to help maintain our public lands and protect the environment.

Wildlife Wednesday - "Hidden Gem" Are you headed to Glacier National Park this summer? On the trail to Hidden Lake out of Logan Pass in Glacier National Park, you should have a great chance of seeing some wildlife. In particular, Rocky Mountain Goat, or Oreamnos americanus, that seeks out steep landscapes and lush meadows. This kid had strayed from his mother's side to check out a boulder perch as I adjusted my position just in time to get the waterfall and flanks of Clements Mountain in the background. FOLLOW ME to Throwback Thursday tomorrow and check a little known waterfall here in North Idaho. #rockymountaingoat #kidgoat #waterfall #loganpass #glacier #montana #glaciernationalpark #glacier_national_park #nationalparkservice #nps #visitmontana #glaciernps #montana #glaciermt #hikingglacier #discoverearth #lifeofadventure #getoutside #exploregnp #naturephotography #mustgetoutdoors #wildlife #wildlifeofinstagram #wildlifephotographic #wildlifeseekers #wildlife_photography #wildlifephotographer #wildlifephotos #clearwaterphotoandvideo #brentdclark
• Three years ago, I took this photo in Valley Forge and it’s still one of my favorites. I don’t consider myself to be a landscape photographer at all, but to me, this perfectly captures the cold, barren, feel of winter. George Washington and his poor troops must have been miserable here the winter of 1777-1778 🥶. . #valleyforge #valleyforgepark #georgewashington #soldierhuts #landscapephotography #mainline #emilybrunnerphotography #nps #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #winterphotography
The world is too big to stay in one place! ☀️🌊🤙🏻 〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️ I have to admit that when I just looked at the water, I felt I was in a huge pool. But then when I saw the historic fort in front of me, felt the soft sand below my feet, and witnessed all the different types of colorful fishes swimming around me, I knew it wasn’t a pool but rather it was paradise! 😍 Did I mention that I technically had all of this for just myself? Yup, I did! It’s a perk you get when you camp on this island because the ferry and main crowds are only at the island for four hours each day so the only people that gets to stay here are the campers. (Which was only about 10 of us in the whole island.) It’s one of the few most remote national parks in United States. You have to take everything the you will need to survive with you because there is nowhere to buy something from. That is water, food, first aid kid, etc. The closest hospital is about 75 (water) miles away. So if you’re thinking about camping here, make sure you do your research well because it’s probably not the type of camping you’re used to. Especially if you camp for multiple days or like I did, 5 days! Needless to say, it’s quiet an adventure but all worth it! 🙌🏻😊 You don’t get to experience places and moments such as these with no crowds that often nowadays. Thank you @drytortugas for making this a lifetime experience! 🚢🏝🌅💛 • 📍Dry Tortugas National Park, Florida 🇺🇸

It's hard to get a good picture out of the passenger window while driving 85mph, but I like the silly-looking Joshua trees and I don't see too many of them. 🌵 It's come to my attention that some subhumans have taken advantage of the gvt shutdown and cut down some of these trees in Joshua Tree Nt'l Forest, and I want retribution of violent variety. It isn't hard to not be a colossal ass. Or maybe it is, but you still shouldn't do it. 🌵 #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #currentevents #protectourparks #nationalparkservice #desert #desertplant #roadtrip #longdrive #news #desert

I realized that I’ve been posting pictures from @joshuatreenps during the government shutdown. And while I think the administration’s lack of action says more than any one person could, I felt compelled to say something about reports from around various parks. During the shutdown, park rangers go unpaid, and @nationalparkservice is running a skeleton crew, meaning as few people as possible to perform basic duties, resulting in fewer rangers and fewer patrols. Yes, the parks are free, and sadly trash and human waste are piling up, but even worse is the vandalism occurring at many parks. Reports of visitors tagging and spray painting rock formations is abhorrent, but specifically in Joshua Tree, visitors are cutting down Joshua trees to make room for roads they created, which could do lasting damage to the population due to the slow growth rate. Regardless of the state of the government, harming national parks is never ok. #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #jtnp #hiking #visitjoshuatree #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #vandalism #conservation #nature #governmentshutdown #usgovernment #shutdown #nationalparksusa #nationalparkservice #california #visitcalifornia #hiking #camping #photography #worldofmonte
Mt. Rainier National Park, Washington state. Mt. Rainier is an active composite Cascade volcano, having last erupted in the 1800's. It is known for its lahar deposits, which are deadly volcanic mud flows composed of hot ash and volcanic debris mixed with glacial meltwater. These lahar deposits, from previous eruptions, can be found radially around the volcano, having traveled along low-lying paths--mainly, river beds that today flow through populated towns and cities, such a Tacoma, WA. Mt. Rainier is expected to erupt again. . . . . . . . . #mtrainier #mtrainiernationalpark #seattle #tacoma #washingtonstate #washington #pnw #geology #volcanoes #volcanology #geologyrocks #geologist #volcanichazards #travel #america #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #nps

M A R Y M E R E F A L L S In Port Angeles bekamen wir den Tipp die marymere falls zu besuchen. Der Wasserfall lag direkt auf unserer Route, entlang des Highway 101 Richtung Forks (Gruß an alle Twilight Fans, oder die, die es mal waren 😁) und ist über einen etwa 2km langen Trail gut zu Fuß zu erreichen. Es ist zwar ein relativ kleiner Wasserfall, aber der Weg durch die Wälder des Olympic National Park ist wirklich toll und perfekt für eine kleine Auszeit. Schaut ihr euch auch so gerne Wasserfälle an wie wir? 😊 ° ° ° #marymerefalls #waterfall #olympicnationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #national_park_photography #washington #rainforest #trail #hiking #highway101 #wasserfall #wanderlust #travel #travelamerica #travelling #reisenmachtglücklich #reisen #travelcouple #usa #roadtrip #roadtripusa #forks #portangeles #getawaywithme #simonundsteffi #exploremore #explore #naturephotography #naturelovers @travel.to.usa
Joshua Tree National Park is only 2 1/2 hours from Los Angeles. It’s totally worth the drive if you’re in need for a quick day trip or weekend out of the city. For me, I find it very relaxing driving through the desert. Something about seeing sand colored rocks against a blue sky calms me. Can't wait to do it again.

Most of the springs in Hot Springs, Arkansas are capped off to avoid contamination. People do after, all, drink straight spring water. It's available every block or so on bathhouse row at free fountains and people can be seen at all times filling up bottles and jugs of water to take home. We fill up our canteens every time we pass one. But, there are a couple of "show springs" left open. The water is so hot that it's steaming and most people can't hold their hand in it for more than a couple seconds. I've read that the water comes up from the ground 140 degrees Fahrenheit. The drinking water, is also straight from the springs, still steaming hot. . . . . . . .Sent via @planoly #planoly #traveldeeper #travel #hotsprings #nomad #familytravel #familyadventure #gorving #explore #exploremore #fulltimetravel #homeiswhereyouparkit #traveler #tourism #sightseeing #neverstopexploring #igtravel #travelphotography #photooftheday #picoftheday #nationalparks #nps #nationalparkservice #hotpsringsnationalpark #rvlife #wewhotravel #traveldeeper #hotspringsarkansas #hotspringsar #arkansas

Another trip around the sun complete. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many thanks to the people who’ve been a part of my adventures this past year. Excited to see where the next one will lead us... 🙏🏻
What is happening in #JoshuaTreeNationalPark during the #GovernmentShutDown is a travesty. It is unfathomable seeing the destruction that is happening to this park. The endangered Joshua Tree takes 60 years to mature, and many of these trees are hundreds and hundreds of years old. I am praying this shut down ends soon so our rangers can get back to protecting our parks. 🌵🌵🌵⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #saveourparks #nationalparkservice #nps #joshuatree #california #desert #photography #palmsprings #nature #joshuatreenationalpark #beautiful #losangeles #food #mothernature #explor #getoutside #vegan #naturephotos #thegreatoutdoors #camping #usa #travelphotography #canon #sky #life #lasvegas #cactus #travel
Have you ever been all the way up there? I haven't... My husband took this photo. I was petrified and couldn't go all the way. I didn't know I was afraid of heights until that moment...I literally couldn't move... 🗻 ⛰️🏕️🌎😲😱🎒 Connaissez-vous Angel's Landing ? L'une des randonnées les plus dangereuses du monde !

When your trail has been blocked by creatures of the deep. 🤫 Watch them peacefully then continue on.
Going to the Sun Road. Simply pull off the road and enjoy the views like this. No wonder why Going to the Sun Road is considered as one of the best scenic routes in North America.

This is what it feels like when you’re looking for the end of the #shutdown , but just can’t seem to find it. The lenses seem clear, but there is nothing positive to focus on. If only we knew on our lunch walk a month ago what our binoculars would still not be able to see. 😣 - I can’t speak for the hundreds of thousands of federal employees on #furlough or working without pay, but I know it is difficult to feel at a loss—whether it be of a purpose without employment, of financial stability, of pride when you have to ask for assistance, or of motivation when things seem hopeless. This is hurting more than just the hired individuals and their families, but also businesses they visit or support. And the snowball effect continues.
An arctic fox's (Vulpes lagopus) coat serve two major purposes: to provide a thick warm layer and to provide camouflage against the snowy landscape. . . . #repostyourparks #parks #nps #nationalparkservice #nature #naturephotography #repost #earth #beauty #findyourpark #celebratenature #celebrateparks #photography #provincialparks #provincialparkscanada #parccanada #wildlife #conservation #arcticfox #belowzero #animals #wildlifeconservation
Most people only think of the wall when they think of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial ... but The Three Soldiers statue, while not part of the original design, is also part of the memorial. . . . It was the flowers that did it for me - the 60s are not gone, are they? This is a solemn place - I imagine the grief and the suffering of loved ones and survivors - the whole place makes me sad, every time. . . . #vietnamveteransmemorial #thethreesoldiers #vietnam #nationalmall #nationalpark #nationalmemorial #nps #nationalparkservice #findyourpark #washingtondc #makelovenotwar #flowers #travel #seetheusa #districtofcolumbia #absolutelynothing #sayitagain

At some point in the future the nationalwildlife will be using this view of grandtetonnps for a holiday card. They’ll be for sale up on the NWF website sometime in 2019. If you love catching the sunrise at Teton or know someone who does, buy some nice high quality cards, support a great organization that aligns will your values and share one of the most amazing views in the US National Parks!

On January 16, 1962: #VirginIslandsNationalHistoricSite was Renamed #ChristianstedNationalHistoricSite#StCroixUSVirginIslands • (11/16/2009) Christiansted’s harbor-side historic park interprets two centuries of Danish colonial rule and the Capital of the Danish West Indies, when sugar was king. This 84 square mile island was first ruled by Spain, then Holland, England, the Knights of Malta, and France. Our visit was on a day of very heavy rain, courtesy of Hurricane Ida. • #AdventureAwaitsOurFamily #CheckOffAnotherNationalParkSite #DadPlannedTravel #FamilyOfExplorers #FamilyOfNationalParkGeeks #FamilyOfTravelers #FindingOurPark #NationalParkFamily #NationalParkGeek #NationalParkGeeks #NationalParkLife #NationalParkService #NationalParkTravel #NPSPassport #ParkPassportReady #RoadTripUSA #TravelingExplorers #TravelingFamily #TravelingTheUSA #WanderFilledFamily #WeAreNationalParkObsessed #WeLoveTheNationalParkLife #WeLoveToTravel
When you are left awestruck by Mother Nature! . . . On one of our trips to Las Vegas, we decided to check Bryce Canyons off my husband's bucket list. To be honest, after my disastrous trip to the western rim of Grand Canyon national park (more on that later), I wasn't keen on visiting any other Canyon in my lifetime ! But I decided to give in (in bargain for some additional nights in Vegas) and boy, I was so glad we ended up visiting this beauty ! I was left awestruck by the sheer magnitude of these canyons. It was so breathtaking ! It's safe to say that Bryce Canyon ended up being my favorite national park in usa ! . . .
