Here’s a great deal for families. The “Every Kid In a Park” program is offering 4th graders (and their families!) a free National Parks pass, valid through August 31, 2019! Annual passes normally cost $80, so that’s a decent savings! The pass is for 4th grade students (or homeschool equivalent) and with it any children under 16 years old, as well as up to 3 adults, will get free entry into any national park in the country! Plus, you can use it as many times as you’d like! Check here (via the link in our bio!) to signup for your free pass. After registering you’ll need to print your pass and bring it with you for entry, as electronic copies aren’t accepted.

The amount of times I said “this isn’t real, this is fake” while driving through Beartooth Pass is pretty obnoxious, but can you blame me?

Jordan Pond and The Bubbles last October at Acadia National Park. Unfortunately most of my photos from this Acadia trip were deleted somehow and this is one of the only ones I still have. I guess that means I’ll have to revisit soon!! @acadianps. • • #NationalParkOdyssey #NationalPark #NationalParkGeek #Adventurenthusiasts #GoExplore #AdventureIsOutThere #NPS #National_Park_Photography #ParkRoamers #NationalParkObsessed #FindYourPark #USParksAndMonuments #AmongTheWild #AmericasBestIdea #GetOutside #GoParks #USInterior #NationalParksAndMonuments #ParkRoamers #Maine #MountDesertIsland #AcadiaNP #JordanPond #TheBubbles
A good friend of mine insists that holding low expectations is the key to happiness. I vehemently disagree....most of the time. Expectations drive me to achieve and the expectation of future outcomes provides happiness in the planning and execution phases. In short: expectations motivate me. . But I do have to admit that dissapointment is also rarely unaccompanied by expectation and so in that sense, I admit he's right. . I learned about Jacob Hamblin Arch on IG through dozens of the same dazzling viewpoint, and when I get there - or thought I got there, was pretty sure I'd gotten there - it didn't look "right." What I saw was impressive on its own, but that view...where was it? . Andras questioned whether I was finally showing the effects of dehydration. "There's an arch. There's the end of the trail. There it is on the map. What are you looking for?" I was looking for someone else's experience. . For a while I played the "if only" - if only I'd walked 20 yards further! - but I don't need that photo to validate my time here. In this case, it's the photo I didn't take that made this experience my own. . . . . . . #whyihike #hikingadventure #womenwhohike #yesvisitutah #visitutah #utahisrad #utahgram #utahisbeautiful #lifeelevated #beaUTAHful #utahrocks #utahnps #findyourpark #goparks #sharetheexperience #forceofnature #americasbestidea #nationalparkgeek #optoutside #ourpubliclands #keepitpublic #rei1440project #neverstopexploring #nationalparkroadtrip #grandstaircaseescalante #sheisnotlost #roadtripaddict #sheexplores #findyouradventure #jacobhamblinarch
we had to WORK for this view but sweet baby Jesus was it worth it ⛰ 60,000 steps and 26 miles in 2 days and I would do it all again! #glacierpoint #americasbestidea
Reflecting on the weekend and I’m infinitely grateful to be in a position to enjoy and help others enjoy their public lands. #keepbiscaynebeautiful #biscaynereefranger _______________________________________________________ #biscayne #FindYourPark #biscaynenationalpark #biscaynenp #biscaynenps #biscaynebay #miami #florida #FindYourPark #GoParks #parks101 #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkobsessed #usinterior #wnpa1938 #experienceyouramerica #protectingparks #americasbestidea #naturephotousa #npcollective #protectpubliclands #natparkexplorer #monumentsforall #thenationalparkspass #sharetheexperience _______________________________________________________ happy 50th, Biscayne.

A two day raptor survey on Mt Brown for Glacier National Park through the Citizen Science Program allowed for an overnight stay at the Mt Brown lookout!

If Jackson wasn’t so freaking cold (and expensive), I’d probably want to live there. The towering Tetons, glittering lakes, and wealth of outdoor activities are the adventurer’s dream. I know I’ll be back over and over. What’s one place you would love to live in but know you would never be able? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @markdlopez

On the way to Channel Islands National Park today, we saw a pod of 200 dolphins and a humpback whale. #findyourpark #optoutside #nps #americasbestidea #californiaadventure #channelislands #vagabondforbeauty #wanderwoman #wanderlust #california #nationalparkgeek #dolphins #marinelife

Hoping your weekend was filled with blue skies and wild landscapes! #seekmorewilderness _____ ”Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” -John Muir _____
Crater lake was pretty incredible! The water was sooo blue, and when we arrived - so was the sky! By the time we left, some fog rolled in and these beautiful blues were obstructed by clouds. Lucky we got there just in time! . We’re heading to Northern California tomorrow (or Tuesday) - which cool places do we need to see? And where should we camp?
For the Benefit and Enjoyment of the People
When your friends really know you. Thanks so much, @dunks_chicago ! See you in DV in 68 days. 😊 #americasbestidea #nationalparks
This wasn't where we intended to be, but it was where we needed to end up. Level ground, open sky, and a solid place to regroup. So I consider this trip a success. It didn't go according to plan by a mile (literally at times), but that's life. We learned a lot - about our preparation but also about pulling together, learning when to compromise and when to stand firm, when to push the other and when to offer support. . Mostly we learned we're stronger than we realize. And so are you. You're stronger than you realize. 💚 . . . . . #campingcollective #iwokeuphere #campingvibes #yesvisitutah #visitutah #utahisrad #utahgram #utahisbeautiful #lifeelevated #beaUTAHful #utahrocks #utahnps #findyourpark #goparks #sharetheexperience #americasbestidea #nationalparkgeek #optoutside #ourpubliclands #keepitpublic #rei1440project #nationalparks #neverstopexploring #nationalparkroadtrip #grandstaircaseescalante #marmotlimelight #marmot #backpacking #whereiwokeup

A very cold, very windy 43rd National Park! Hello from Acadia! . . . #nationalparkgeek
In video number two, the Takacs crew heads to Devils Tower, Wyoming as part of their 2018 summer RV trip. Alison spots something interesting (at 4:50 in the video). Preston and Grayson enjoy watching the park locals enjoy a nice morning. Jason practices using a gimbal for the first time in the outdoors. All video footage was filmed on a Google Pixel 2XL and Panasonic G85. The music in this video is from Epidemic Sound. DM me if you would like a song list. #devilstower #goparks #americasbestidea #visitwyoming #thatswy #westbysouthwest #usparksandmonuments #ourwild #peoplewhoadventure #happyadventuring #theoutdoorpassion #nationalmonument #usnationalparks #nationalparklife #nationalparkgeek #escreators #letsjayco #jayco #thorindustries

My Dad and I hiked Mount Whitney last Friday among the elements. Half way up the 99 switchbacks, the snow was started to pile up, and then we had 2 miles (above 12,500ft) of traversing a dark, thick fog bank and 20 mph winds right on the nose. Fortunately, the last quarter mile was nothing but sun and clear skies. Not sure if that was more impressive, or the fact that my dad has just completed his 3rd 22 mile hike in 5 days, with 2 R2R'S already under his belt! #mountwhitney #california #fatherson . . . . . #naturephotography #nature #findyourpark #wildernessculture #wanderlust #neverstopexploring #adventure #travel #mountains #trailtime #hiking #trails #roadtrip #landscape #landscapephotography #bpmag #outside #america #americasbestidea #montana #california #natgeo #natgeotravel #nationalgeographic #photography #johnmuirwilderness #sierra #californiaadventure
