Well, hello there! 🏔(Taken July 2017)

Learn what makes Bears Ears National Monument so special by tuning into @rocktheparkabc with Colton @coltondsmith and Jack @jackfsteward this weekend. Rock the Park always inspires us to go explore! ••••• Thanks Colton @coltondsmith for sharing this important story. ------ - PLEASE READ 💥 This weekend our Bears Ears National Monument episode will air on @rocktheparkabc on ABC. It was an honor to film this incredible desert landscape and walk on ground that is held as sacred by so many Native American Tribes. The combination of beauty, history and spirituality I found at Bears Ears is unlike anything I’ve experienced before. Bears Ears is a story that to many has been in the making for the past 4,000 years, it’s a story that needs to be heard, shared and protected. We all have a right to have our voices heard and when others have their voices suppressed it’s our responsibility to raise ours for them. . . Since we filmed this episode the decision was made to reduce the size of Bears Ears significantly. I can’t promise that everything shown in our episode still falls under protection. After watching this, that shouldn’t sit well with you- infact that should flat out anger you. It’s never to late though to raise your voice. So share it, spread it and tell as many as you can that Bears Ears needs our help and we must do everything we can to protect it. Go to bearsearscoalition.org to take action! ------- #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #monumentalmistake #savebearsears #bearsears

Happy Birthday to White Sands National Monument founded this day in 1933. It is the most wonderful sand box you will ever play in. •••••• Many thanks to Sandra @nationalparkpatchlady for the goodness of the dunes. ——— Happy birthday to one of my favorite National Park sites, White Sands National Monument. ⠀ ⠀ Gypsum rarely occurs as sand because it is water-soluble. Normally, rain would dissolve the gypsum and carry it to the sea. The Tularosa Basin has no outlet to the sea, so it traps rain that dissolves gypsum from the surrounding San Andres and Sacramento Mountains. Thus water either sinks into the ground, or forms shallow pools that subsequently dry out and leave gypsum on the surface in a crystalline form called selenite. ⠀ ⠀ 📍: White Sands National Monument, NM⠀ 📅 : July 2017⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #travel #explore #learn #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark ⠀ ——— #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #wnpa1938

I don't think I saw anything not beautiful in Glacier. 🤔 (Taken July 2017)
Whaaat?! As soon as I landed from my winter road trip, I got busy with everyday responsibilities and preparing for dance portraits, taken less than a week after returning. Today, I took a little break and went through some more of my trip photos. Remember how I lamented that the sun never broke through the clouds that morning I hiked to Mesa Arch for epic sunrise shots? Yeah, well, I didn't get the shots I sought, but I DID get this!! I totally didn't realize how beautiful the shots were turning out, and believed I was just going to have to hold the view in my heart until next time. I made the mistake of basing some of my thoughts on what my gadget camera shots looked like, but here's one from my real deal camera! Crikey! #happydance . © Roots and Twigs Photography © rootsandtwigs.com Facebook ID: rootsandtwigs . fine art | documentary | lifestyle | families | children | seniors | weddings | events Fort Collins, Colorado and surrounding areas. . . . #canyonlands #canyonlandsnationalpark #canyonlandsnps #earlybird #everykidinapark #findyourpark #firstlight #fortcollinsphotographer #foundmypark #goldenhour #landscape #leavenotrace #lightstalker #mesaarch #mesaarchsunrise #moab #mothernature #optoutside #photographerproblems #riseandshine #roadtrip #roadtripusa #sunrise #takeonlypictures #theoutbound #travelphotography #utah #utahrocks #yourshotphotographer
110 years ago today, what we now know as Pinnacles National Park was protected as a national monument. We visited the park for the first time two years ago (February 2016) and hiked Bear Gulch up to High Peaks!

I got up early yesterday and logged onto @recreation_gov to make my @Yosemite nps camping reservations for this summer. Scored a waterfront campsite on the Merced river.

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy” -Martin Luther King, Jr. This is one of the quotes inscribed into a wall of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington D.C. It’s the one that stood out to me the most on our recent visit. The memorial is part of the National Mall and Memorial Parks. There is no fee to visit and it is open 24 hours a day. Make sure it’s on your to-visit list the next time you find yourself in D.C. _____________________ 📷: @cs.travel 📍: Washington D.C. _____________________ Find more travel tips here: #cstraveltips _____________________ #mlkweekend #mlk #martinlutherkingjr #mlkmemorial #martinlutherkingjrmemorial #washingtondc #nationalmall #memorialpark #potomac #potomacriver #unitedstates #unitedstatescapitol #memorial #nps #findyourpark #everykidinapark #usroadtrip #travel #instatravel #travellove #travellife #dc #washingtondctrip #dctrip #visitdc #showthemtheworld #traveler #nationalpark #America
I was asked to make a parks video to share with my students. I can’t share the final “movie” because my students are in it, but here’s the trailer. A HUGE thanks to @jrrangertigran @thebucketlisttraveler and @nationalparkpatchlady for sharing their stories in the full video!! We really hope to get more teachers on board with using the national parks as an educational resource and see more kids in the parks as a result. #notsojuniorrangers #explorelearnprotect #nationalparktrust #kidstoparks #findyourpark #everykidinapark #buddybison #americasbestidea #nps101 #nationalpark #juniorrangers
Virgin River, Zion National Park. The Virgin River is a tributary of the Colorado River in the U.S.A. The river is about 162 miles It was designated Utah's first wild and scenic river in 2009, during the centennial celebration of Zion National Park. Despite flowing through an arid region, the Virgin River is home to a surprisingly diverse array of plants and animals. Southwestern Utah is located at the intersection of three physiographic regions: the Colorado Plateau, the Great Basin, and the Mojave Desert. The exceptional landscapes and habitats of this region harbor unique plant and animal communities and species found nowhere else in the world. Without the water of the Virgin River system, these species could not exist. I used little stopper lee filter to make water more smooth. @zionnps @leefilters @natgeo #nationalparkgeek  #nationalpark  #nationalparks #findyourpark  #goparks #nationalparkfoundation  #everykidinapark #zion  #zionnationalpark   #southernutah  #utahisrad  #utahunique #utahmountains  #utahstate  #utahrocks #wowutah  #werutah   #igutah #instautah   #nationalparkservice #usinterior  #xputah #igsouthwest  #np10k #oleksandrmokrohuz #westbysouthwest #leefilters #worldclasslandscapephotographers

Half dome peaking through
"I still have a dream, a dream deeply rooted in the American dream – one day this nation will rise up and live up to its creed, "We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal." -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In July I took a stroll through DC in the dark and stood on the very steps that Dr. King made his iconic speech. We have come far as a country since that speech, but we can always move forward in standing up to injustice everywhere #martinlutherking #mlkday #civilrights #yourpublicland #washingtondc #nationalmall #yourparksafterdark #publiclandowner #constitution #civilliberties #mlkjr #ihaveadream #lincolnmemorial #nps #nationalparkservice #reflectingpond #equality #liberty #parkranger #lifeofaparkranger #protectingyourpublicland #findyourpark #everykidinapark

Some trails just amaze from top to bottom. ••••• Thanks to Ron @emergingeye for the great hike. ------- Nice as Bryce... Definitely had to add Bryce Canyon to my 2017 top 9! One of my favorite places outside of Oregon! This adventure was with the entire Wolfpack including my Mom who enjoyed Bryce Canyon even more than the Grand Canyon! There is something truly special about this place! But the blue skies are not to be trusted here! It was late March and the weather was perfect the whole way down. Shortly after we made it to the bottom, the blue quickly turned gray and started snowing hard! I had to grab my six month old son and rush him back to the rim top to the car! This is when I realized how thin the air is here and that the rim top is at 9000ft! Gasping for air, I made it back to the car as fast as possible! By time we took off everything was already covered in snow! We had to change our plans and headed south to Arizona! ------ #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #bryce
