Unlikely Hikers is a diverse and inclusive hiking community for the underrepresented outdoorsperson. Tag #unlikelyhikers or #unlikelyhiker to be featured! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Brown people, queer people, women; growing up in the PNW, those weren’t the people I saw represented in the outdoors. I didn’t see myself, However, I did see my mother leading us on the trails, teaching me to respect the land and what it offers, encouraging me to love it without shame. I instead saw who I could and hope to be one day. Genetics gave us the same heart condition, the beauty of the outdoors gave us the reason to keep going ‘one step at a time, no matter how slow.’” -Stephanie / @stephaniefaull ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [image description: two people on a dry grassy trail, bundled up in winter gear, smiling and being silly.]

Bat guano at Carlsbad Caverns National Park was mined for a profit in the early 1900's.Today, bat guano is mined in other places for climate change data across the planet. The image is of lead researcher Daniel Cleary and another beside a mound of guano, waiting to be cored, in Zidită Cave. You can read more at https://goo.gl/RA9xGa. Bogdan P.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We'll never forget his vision for what this country could be. And we'll continue to honor his legacy today and everyday to move us closer to making his dream a reality. #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque [📷: Rip Rippey at @devilstowernps via @share_the_experience ]
"Warning: People have died while climbing in these mountains. Don't attempt climbs or hikes you do not have the ability, equipment, or the time to accomplish. Hike or climb with at least one other person. Leave word where you are going and when you will return. Leave rattlesnakes alone and they will leave you alone. Take water and appropriate clothing with you."

Organ Mountains rise to 9,000 ft elevation and span 20 miles. ⛰🌄Today we only did about 2 miles along Dripping Springs Trail. It was a steady climb the entire way up, up, up 😅 And I had a tough time taking deep breaths on this hike. 😵 The trail is thick gravel & not the easiest to walk. After our hike we had a picnic surrounded by these gorgeous views.😍😍Thank you to the Bureau of Land Management for waiving the trail fee in honor of MLK Day! We will be back Organ. Many more trails to explore. 💚💚 #optoutside #outsideisfree #newmexico #newadventures #organmountains #hike #freshair #fitness #instafit #igfitness #beyourbest #movethemission #FitFamAmbassador #newmexicotrue #encuentratuparque #findyourpark #gramofenchantment

The #CivilRightsMovement has its origins in the #UndergroundRailroad Movement. During slavery, fugitives, free blacks, and women fought for their rights and equality. After slavery ended in 1865, former slaves, such as Harriet Tubman, continued to advocate for their voting rights, equality, and justice as Civil Rights activists under racial segregation laws. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a descendant of former slaves, was born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia, and became the nation's most recognized Civil Rights leader. Dr. King's life and legacy is preserved in his place of birth at the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site in Atlanta, a unit of the National Park Service. #Findyourpark #Encuentratuparque #MLKDay2018 #MLKDay #BlackHistory #AfricanAmericanHistory #AmericanHistory #WomensHistory #History
For @jasonconroy , our #nationalpark map, but the good part. White we have visited, black we plan to visit, red is a non-NPS point of interest, and the pink pyramid is home!
Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! Manassas National Battlefield does not charge a fee. However, today all National Park Service sites that charge an entrance fee will offer free admission to everyone. Enjoy exploring your parks and remembering the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. today #manassasbattlefield #findyourpark #EncuentraTuParque
British spies were actively observing the Continental Encampment at Morristown. The intelligence they passed on was incredibly accurate. ▪️ On January 15, 1780, a report noted, "Their army is chiefly subsisted by provisions taken from the inhabitants for which receipts are given payable in six months and at such prices as the disdainers please to fix. The have no magazines formed nor can they procure provisions by purchase with Continental Money . . " ▪️ Well aware of the plight of the American troops, the British were constantly looking for opportunities to encourage desertion, sow dissent, and even strike at the Morristown camp. ▪️ #morristownnj #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #onthisday #newjersey

Cave Photo Tip: Did you know that flash photography is allowed in Carlsbad Caverns? Inside the cavern, flash doesn’t harm any of the wonderful formations or chambers you can visit. Go ahead and take as many photos as you want. However, you might want to think about how you use your flash. Most on camera flashes aren’t powerful enough to light up the massive passageways in Carlsbad Cavern. Instead, you might want to focus on using your flash to light up your friends and family, while letting the new LED cave lighting system do the rest. On the other hand, even if your flash is powerful enough to light up the cave, it may not always be the best choice. The images above compare the difference between using existing light versus flash in a cave setting. Sometimes the less we use, the more we get.

"Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." - Martin Luther King Jr. In the wise words of whose legacy we conmemorate today, we echo the value of Service that he well encompasses in these lines and that is also a fundamental part of who we are as an agency. We are greatful and honored to serve this magnificent patrimony and we look forward to inspire you all to feel the same way 🏰❤️ Thanks to @casey_ohh for the wonderful pic 📷✨ P. S. Entrance to the forts today is FREE! #MotivationalMonday #SanJuanForts #OldSanJuan #PuertoRico #NationalParkService #FindYourPark #WorldHeritageSite "Todo el mundo puede ser grandioso... porque cualquiera puede servir. No tienes que tener un título universitario para poder servir. No tienes que hacer que tu sujeto y verbo concuerden para poder servir. Sólo necesitas un corazón lleno de gratitud. Un alma generada por amor." - Martin Luther King Jr. En las sabias palabras de quien conmemoramos su legado hoy, hacemos eco del valor de Servicio que él bien capturó en esas líneas, y que al igual es una parte fundamental de quienes somos como institución. Estamos honrados y agradecidos de servirle a este magnífico patrimonio, y esperamos inspirarles a sentirse de la misma manera 🏰❤️ Gracias a Casey Ogden por la grandiosa foto 📷✨ P.

Repost from @lewisandclarknps The answer to the question "What did the Clatsop use to make their clothes?" is cedar bark. Lewis wrote Jan. 19th, 1806 about the hats of Clatsop visitors to the fort “these hats are of their own manufactory and are composed of Cedar bark and bear grass interwoven with the fingers and ornimented with varioius colours and figures, they are nearly waterproof, light, and I am convinced are much more durable than either chip.” Of the skirts worn by women, Clark wrote Nov. 21st, 1805 “The women were a Short peticoat of the iner bark of the white Ceder or Arber Vita, which hang down loose in Strings nearly as low as the knee, with a Short Robe which fall half way down the Thigh.” There you have it, Cedar, the original Gore-Tex. #lewisandclarknhp #lewisandclark #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #fortclatsop #nps #nationalparkservice #lewisandclarktrivia #protectingparks

Of three species of cave crickets found in Carlsbad Cavern, Ceuthophilus longipes is the most adapted to cave life. It has pale coloration, long slender legs and body, and long antennae. A second species, Ceuthophilus carlsbadensis, shows fewer adaptations, and spends more time in areas close to the Underground Lunchroom, where crumbs are abundant. The crickets also eat natural foods such as bat guano and plant debris washed in by floods. The Ceuthophilus carlsbadensis also likes to eat Ceuthophilus longipes! Ceuthophilus conicadus, the third species of cricket, is in between the other two in its level of cave adaptation. It is less common in Carlsbad Cavern, but abundant in the nearby Spider Cave.

Foggy woods during the cold winter season might intimidate many. However to enslaved people seeking their freedom, these woods provided a place to hide on the #UndergroundRailroad . During Black History Month on February 4 and 18 at 1 p.m. at the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center, learn how the landscape of Maryland's Eastern Shore provided opportunities for enslaved people to escape from slavery. #Tubmancountry #Findyourpark #Encuentratuparque #Maryland #VisitMaryland #VisitDorchester #DorchesterCounty #BlackHistoryMonth #AfricanAmericanHistory #AmericanHistory #AfricanAmericanHistoryMonth #Landscape #Winterseason #BlackHistory

January 13, 1806 the Lewis and Clark Expedition used the last of their candles. Clark writes ".....fortunately had taken the precaution to bring with us moulds and wick, by means of which and Some Elk tallow in our possession we do not think our Selves distitute of this necessary article". Tallow is animal fat that has been rendered, which means melted down and clarified. The tallow is then poured into the molds, and once cooled it returns to a solid form. If you are interested in seeing rendering and candle making in action come out to see us Monday January 15th at the Fort Clatsop replica. Did we mention the 15th is a fee free day in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. day? #lewisandclarknhp #lewisandclark #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #fortclatsop #nps #nationalparkservice
