OMGosh. How cute is this photo? I was looking for pics of #NoblettLake and found this one! #Repost @jessidreckman with @get_repost ・・・ We had a big adventure checking out Noblett Lake yesterday, and this vibrant rainbow spread across the sky while Drew and Paul fished. It was a beautiful backdrop to a beautiful evening. . . . . #nofilter #noblettlake #delilahbelle #borntobeoutside

Our last “Passport to our State Parks” was this past Monday, and as always, we had so. Much. Fun. We traveled to Bixby State Preserve, a little known place in #Iowa and hiked through the woods, did a lot of creek stomping, explored some old #civilianconservationcorps buildings, and checked out an ice cave! We rounded the day out by visiting @claytoncountyiowa conservation to check out Osborne Nature Center and got to see coyotes, foxes, a cougar and even a wolf! We hope all of ours campers had fun on these trips (we know we did 😉) #thisisiowa @iowadnr @cedar_falls_tourism_bureau #hookedonhartman #nature #explore #cedarvalley #summercamp

The Civilian Conversation Corps was an amazing program that helped in the construction in many park properties including the passageways at Colossal Cave!! - - - - - - - - - - - - #explore #nature #wanderer #colossalcave #cave #civilianconservationcorps #skyscape #sky #cloudscape #cloudporn #history #travel #traveler #travelgram #wanderlust #exploretocreate #exploremore #optoutside #outdooradventures
Today we went on a #hike in #princewilliamforestpark on the Pyrite Mile Trail. Mom got excited when she found out the park was a #ccc project and saw #miningremains because #humansareweird I saw #squirrels which are awesome. #findyourpark #civilianconservationcorps #trails #Virginia #exploringmyhood #summerinvirginia

Some nice CCC built river cobble structures circa 1939-40. #civilianconservationcorps
These guys had it all figured out and then we had to get bigger houses and better paying jobs. Something to be said for living below your means and the peace it brings. #ccc #civilianconservationcorps #vastateparks #virginia #greatdepression #cabin #log #history #relax #takeabreak #unplug #unplugged #simplelife #visitva #virginiahistory #history #getaway

Over a 9 year period in the 1940’s/50’s, the Civilian Conservation Corps planted 484 million trees in Michigan in an effort to reforest and conserve these treasured natural lands. Many of the saplings were started at the Higgins Lake Nursery. We owe a debt of gratitude to these individuals for preserving the lands that we enjoy so much today. If you are ever in the area, be sure to check out the small but informative CCC History museum. #northhigginslakestatepark #civilianconservationcorps #puremichigan #seeallthethings #protectandpreserve #puremittenpride
#AlvinYork (December 13, 1887 – September 2, 1964), also known as #SergeantYork , was one of the most decorated #UnitedStatesArmy soldiers of World War I.He received the #MedalofHonor for leading an attack on a German machine gun nest, taking 35 machine guns, killing at least 25 enemy soldiers, and capturing 132. York's Medal of Honor action occurred during the #UnitedStates -led portion of the Meuse-Argonne Offensive in France, which was intended to breach the #HindenburgLine and force the Germans to surrender. He earned decorations from several allied countries during #WWI , including #France , #Italy , and #Montenegro . York was drafted during World War I; he initially claimed conscientious objector status on the grounds that his denomination forbade violence. Persuaded that his religion was not incompatible with military service, York joined the 82nd Division as an infantry private, and went to France in 1918.• In the 1930s and 1940s, York worked as a project superintendent for the #CivilianConservationCorps and managed construction of the Byrd Lake reservoir at Cumberland Mountain State Park, after which he served for several years as park superintendent. A 1941 film about his World War I exploits, Sergeant York, was that year's highest-grossing film; Gary Cooper won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of York, and the film was credited with enhancing American morale as mobilization for World War II
Evening hike around Lake Trahlyta. The 22 acre lake was built in the 1930’s by the CCC and named after a Cherokee woman who was said to have drank from a nearby “fountain of youth” to maintain her beauty. The trail leads to Trahlyta Falls Overlook and continues around the lake for about a mile. Rhododendrons, huge mountain pines, wild coriander and a variety of other plants thrive around creeks that empty into the lake. #vogelstatepark #georgiastateparks #summer2018 #themountainsarecalling #hikingwithdogs #waterfalls #roadtrip #rvcamping #camping #campingwithdogs #campinglife #hike #hikingaddict #hikingwithdogs #hikingadventures #hiker #wildflowers #snails #cherokeelegend #civilianconservationcorps
Good morning on this lovely #funfactfriday ! Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park was constructed in part by the CCC, one of President Franklin Roosevelt’s remedied to the Depression. Although there would eventually be hundreds of CCC camps across the country, the very first were located in Shenandoah. - - - Also, new on the blog! The latest in my Off the Beaten Track series is a post about my home town of Fredericksburg, VA.

Park #6 was Perrot state park in Trempealeau, Wi. We climbed 500+ steps to reach the top of the bluff. We found our “most interesting person in the park” at the top and he was thrilled to be photographed with us. (He was so entertaining!) In all seriousness, though, throughout the climb I questioned how the stepping stones that made our climb so enjoyable had come to arrive there. When we reached the top, answers were provided. I applaud President Roosevelt for his visionary leadership and strategies for allowing his people the dignity to earn their way while also providing a valuable service to our country. #wisconsinstateparks #perrotstatepark #civilianconservationcorps #50in50
I'm sharing some of my older photography I've recently rediscovered on my harddrive. This is a shot of Old Sublimity Bridge, a special place with many great memories. . . . . . #photography #throwback #flashback #memories #rusty #bridge #beerock #civilianconservationcorps #oldsublimitybridge #kentucky #nationalforest #danielboonenationalforest
Finally got this stuff up in the bar area downstairs. It’s my grandpas CCC crew photo from Scenic State Park, a CCC ad, a crew photo from my time with MCC, and a photo of me igniting on top of John A Latsch State Park. Now to collect more CCC stuff! (It’s on EBay if I’m on your Christmas List 😉). #CCC #civilianconservationcorps #minnesotaconservationcorps #conservationcorpsminnesota #liveschangedresourcesrestored
Enjoying our freedom in what we believe makes America Great! #NationalParks #AppalachianTrail #HawksbillSummit #Virginia We peaked over 4,011 ft high after seeing a baby #bear . ⛰🐻 #Conservation of our pristine lands generates money into the economy with tourism, filters our pollution via natural carbon sinks, keeps wildlife diversified and protected, and provides endless adventures for those who just need to go and #TakeAHike !!! 😊✌🏻🗺👣🌲 Thank you #TDR and #CivilianConservationCorps for making these parks what’s they are & thank you to all current #EnvironmentalStewards of all kinds helping to allowing these places to continue flourishing. #HappyFourthOfJuly 🇺🇸🌎 @emilyjuchem
We totally enjoyed our weekend at Pine Mountain State Resort Park! Pine Mountain was Kentucky's first State Park, and its location, tucked in the Appalachian Mountains near Tennessee and Virginia, is breathtaking! The charming, rustic lodge was built by the #civilianconservationcorps in 1933. Great food at the Dining Room, lots of hiking trails and gorgeous mountain views made for a great weekend! #pinemountainstateresortpark
Our first night on Mt. Hood a couple weeks ago, we retreated down from a high ridge on the historic #TimberlineTrail to take shelter from a storm in Cairn Basin. In the morning we explored the area around our camp and found the historic Cairn Basin shelter, built by the CCC during The Great Depression to spur tourism and outdoor stewardship. The Cairn Basin Shelter is one of six original structures, of which only four remain (McNeil Point, Cooper Spur, and Elk Meadows are the other three). The Cairn Basin shelter is the best preserved since it is less exposed to the elements and generally more accessible to conservation crews. It was really cool to see this piece of Oregon’s outdoor recreation history, still standing (under several feet of snow) almost a century later. #history #historicoregon #historicpnw #mountains #ccc #civilianconservationcorps #historicpnw _______________________________ #hikingdogs #hikingwithdogs #gsd #gsdofinstagram #gsdmix #bordercolliemix #rescuedog #adoptdontshop #pnwonderdogs #pnwonderland #pnw #pnwanderlust #upperleftusa #pnwpups #blackdog #dogsofinstagram
Artifacts left in the ghost town we hiked through today. The round wooden structure in the ground was for making wood alcohol. You can see the buried train tracks in another picture. There were Paul’s with the handles still as well as the granite footings for the mill building. Good reminder is that the cans we have today will not erode the way much of the metal left for 100 years in this forest did. #themoreyouknow #civilianconservationcorps #hike #ghosttown #maine #vacation
Some fine work of the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) #zion #angelslanding #civilianconservationcorps
Temps in the mid 90’s today but on this wooded trail it was much cooler. This park was originally a CCC project during the New Deal. Think how much we could accomplish if we brought that idea back again. #walkinthewoods #civilianconservationcorps #milwaukee #serenity
Civilian Conservation Corps cabin was built in 1935. It’s now a bathhouse for the day use swimming area. #cabin #civilianconservationcorps #architecture #forest #rv
Civilian Conservation Corps Dam built in 1938 here at the US Forest Service Campground. This is such a beautiful place. I love the CCC workmanship. #civilianconservationcorps #architecture #nofilter #dam #camping #family #makingmemories #motorhomeadventures

One of the things we really enjoy about visiting parks that were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps... the craftsmanship of the buildings that they built. This is the inside of the CCC built park pavilion at @texasparkswildlife @palmettostatepark near Gonzales, Texas.
there are many perks to having a small wedding. here are two examples: 1. working through the busiest month of the year AND managing to assemble and mail your invitations a week ahead of schedule. 2. vintage stamps. I hate to sound basic and say i’m obsessed, but I’M OBSESSED!! these three stamps symbolize Yosemite perfectly and were totally worth the extra $☺️📬 #johnmuir #civilianconservationcorps #ccc #yosemitenationalpark #101days #AdventuresWithTheHeffs

We’re on a tour at @princewilliamforestpark today. We saw structures built by the #civilianconservationcorps , and saw what members of @cccwv have been doing to help address backlogged maintenance and repair aging roofs. Thanks @npcapics for organizing, thanks to the park for hosting, and thanks to #serviceyear mmbrs for helping maintain our parks #serveoutdoors #21csc
This saw was used by the Civilian Conservation Corps, and that’s pretty cool. @them_pearly_gates tearing it up. #crosscutsaw #vintage #civilianconservationcorps #wilderness #southeastconservationcorps #trailworkandgravy #tennessee
