Approximately 500 sea turtle nests are laid on the beaches of Cumberland Island National Seashore each spring/summer. Most are loggerheads, like in these photos, but they may also be leatherback, green, or Kemp’s Ridley. Seeing newly hatched sea turtles hit the sand “running” straight for the ocean (about 1 whole football field away!) was one of the most fantastic experiences of my life. If you’re interested in learning how you can help sea turtle conservation, look no further than the myriad of single-use plastics in your life (straws, balloons, plastic bags...), and think about the ways you can reduce, and even eliminate them altogether. Also, check out the Sea Turtle Conservancy @conserveturtles . And if you’re a student interested in being a sea turtle tech for a summer, check out the Student Conservation Association for internships @the_sca . . @nationalparkservice #nps #cumberlandisland #seaturtle #findyourpark #exploreresponsibly #enjoywildly #parksnpints
day 4: hiked ~13 miles through meadows bursting with wildflowers and over snow covered mountain divides. i cried once (i was tired and hungry and hit my head on a tree) BUT surprise lakes, like this little beauty, 😍 kept me moving forward. 📍unnamed lake • • • • #exploreidaho #visitidaho #idahoexplored #idahogram #idahodaily #hikeidaho #onlyinidaho #ig_idaho #idahooutdoors #cramerlakes #cramerdivide #ednalake
Tunnel View, Yosemite National Park• When I first saw this my jaw dropped. This was taken on a disposable camera in May and because the film was old (2005), I honestly wasn’t expecting much and for this come out as well it did, I couldn’t be happier. #marvelat #yose #yosemitenationalpark #tunnelview #ProtectYosemite #ExploreResponsibly

Going to Yosemite Valley is like being in a ghost town right now - eerie, mostly depressing, and none of the jaw-dropping views. We get outlines of the granite, and sore eyes and throats from breathing the smoke.

The views during the hike up Triglav are simply breathtaking. Don't you agree?⠀ 🤩🏔⠀ But, despite what you may think based on the pictures we shared of our trip so far, the hike is definitely doable. Even when you're not that experienced with hiking in the mountains⠀ 💪🏻⠀ We're working on a blog of our route to the top🔝So stay tuned for some more info👌🏻⠀ •••⠀ Curious to learn about the Triglav national park?

Wildlife Wednesday... Mexican blonde tarantulas (Aphonopelma chalcodes) are hairy, burrowing arachnids that live all over the southwestern region of the United States -- parts of California, New Mexico and Arizona. They are also often known as desert blonde tarantulas and Arizona blonde tarantulas. These nocturnal, eight-legged creatures usually grow to between 3 and 4 inches long. Males of the species are usually a blend of colors, with elements such as red bellies and black limbs. Females, on the other hand, are beige all over. When it's bright out during the daytime, Mexican blonde tarantulas generally remain tucked away, either below stones or within their burrows. They usually stay close to their burrowing areas, with the exception of times of reproduction. Visibility for the species is at a peak in the summer, when their environments receive ample rainfall. Mexican blonde tarantulas do not pose a major threat to people. Although they are indeed venomous, the stuff is not considered to be at all potent. Their bites do hurt temporarily, but are comparable in severity to bee stings. The protective hairs on their bodies feel spiky to the touch and can occasionally lead to irritation in humans and animals, especially as they are sometimes difficult to extract from the skin. These hairs only become an issue during times of defense, however. When they feel frightened, these tarantulas may rub these hairs against the skin of whatever's threatening them. This can drive attackers away with their sharp and spiny textures. Observe these gentle creatures from a distance, always respect wildlife in their natural habitat.

7/14/18 - Me with my Cousin Joy, Dad, and Mom under the famous Tunnel Log at Sequoia National Park. Visiting this famous Tunnel Log was one of the highlights of my day with family at Sequoia National Park, and an awesome way to spend my Birthday weekend! 🌲📷 #sequoianationalpark #sequoiakingsnps #sequoia #nationalparklife #findyourpark #tunnellog #tunnel #log #fallentree #trees #family #Birthday #birthdayvacation #vacation #onlyinsoutherncalifornia #visitcalifornia #theonlycalifornia #southerncali #tularecounty #influenceartists #optoutside #exploreresponsibly #abc7eyewitness #cbsla #ktla #nbcla #nikond810 #nikkor28300mm #nikonnofilter #nikonlove
day 3 brought 3 lakes and a hunt for a fourth lake that we never did find. we had our first alpine lake swims and camped along the rocks that separated upper baron from baron lake. this was a pretty easy hiking day, gearing up for double digit miles and a lot more elevation gain on day 4 • • • • #exploreidaho #visitidaho #idahoexplored #idahogram #idahodaily #hikeidaho #onlyinidaho #ig_idaho #idahooutdoors #baronlakes #alpinelake #mappyhourdc #yourshotmeetup
In the mountains, we feel small amongst all that stunning nature⠀ 🤩⛰⠀ This definitely was the case when we came across some big glacier fields on our way to the top of Mount Triglav. Can you spot us?⠀ 🕵️⠀ You might not expect it at 'only' 2400 meters, but as you can see there's still quite a lot of snow in early July⠀ ❄️⠀ Did you ever walk in summer snow?⠀ ••• ⠀ Are you eager to find out more about this awesome national park in Slovenia? Check out our blog about it (both in 🇳🇱& 🇬🇧). Link in bio 🔝
7/14/18 - Moro Rock Trail mountain views to the west, with the winding mountain roads of Sequoia National Park visible around the forests.

7/14/18 - A closer view of the fallen tree at Moro Rock at Sequoia National Park. It was awesome hiking this mountain stairway, which is the most popular hiking trail at Sequoia National Park! ⛰🚶‍♀️🚶‍♂️📷 #sequoianationalpark #sequoiakingsnps #sequoia #nationalparklife #findyourpark #mororock #landscape #fallentree #mountains #mountainview #forest #cloudy #hike #Birthday #birthdayvacation #onlyinsoutherncalifornia #visitcalifornia #theonlycalifornia #tularecounty #influenceartists #optoutside #exploreresponsibly #abc7eyewitness #cbsla #ktla #nbcla #nikond810 #nikkor28300mm #nikonnofilter #nikonlove
I'm learning so much from this guy. Seriously a great outdoor teacher for me 🙌
I just love the desert 🌵 at one point I was practically there every weekend. Just the views from the keys view is breathtaking. A piece of my heart is at Joshua Tree.
7/14/18 - Awesome mountain views to the east, with an interesting fallen tree in the foreground on the right side, at Moro Rock at Sequoia National Park! This is my favorite view from Moro Rock. The Moro Rock trail hike consists of a stairway of over 350 steps. The stairway was built in 1931, which still endures to this day, and it reaches a height of to 6,725 feet above sea level! This is the most popular hiking trail at Sequoia National Park and it is great for hikers of all levels and experience. I highly recommend it! ⛰🚶‍♀️🚶‍♂️📷 #sequoianationalpark #sequoiakingsnps #sequoia #mororock #nationalparklife #findyourpark #mountains #cloudy #landscape #trees #fallentree #mountainview #hike #Birthday #vacation #onlyinsoutherncalifornia #visitcalifornia #theonlycalifornia #tularecounty #influenceartists #optoutside #exploreresponsibly #abc7eyewitness #cbsla #ktla #nbcla #nikond810 #nikkor28300mm #nikonnofilter #nikonlove
Fort Matanzas National Monument in St Augustine, FL is the only fortified Spanish watchtower in the continental United States. Fun fact: “matanzas” translates to “slaughters, but no one was actually slaughtered at the watchtower. . On the short boat ride to the watchtower, the ranger finished his interp talk with the most excellent reminder that, “YOU own this land, not the government. These places are yours.” 💚 @nationalparkservice . #staugustine #floridaparks #fortmatanzas #nps #findyourpark #findyourfort #exploreresponsibly #enjoywildly #parksnpints
the original plan for our second night in the sawtooths was to camp at a site near redfish lake and head out into the wilderness the following morning. when all the campsites were full — oops, small planning oversight — we decided to take the ferry across the lake and head out on our longer trek a day early. instead of the terrible selfie we took on the ride, i’ll leave you with views of the mountains that would soon envelop us • • • • • #exploreidaho #visitidaho #idahoexplored #idahogram #idahodaily #hikeidaho #onlyinidaho #ig_idaho #idahooutdoors #redfishlake #sawtoothmountains #sawtoothwilderness
Every year that I spend guiding in @yosemitenps , I try to focus on something new to study. My first year was just learning the layout of the park. Then human history, followed by geology and then forced to learn about fire ecology last year. This year I’ve been focusing on flower identification(common names, at least). It’s been a fun adventure to focus on small scenes of beauty in this land of grand views. #thanksjohnmuirlaws
Monday vibes... we feel ya’ big tree, it makes the hair on the back of our necks stand up a little, too. #wanderingalways

Castillo de San Marcos National Monument is the oldest masonry fort, and best-preserved example of a Spanish colonial fort in the continental United States.

7/14/18 - Closer view of one of the flowing rivers at Sequoia National Park. To the left of this river is an area where people go in to swim and cool off from the summer heat.

Slovenia's highest peak Triglav is accessible from different sides. One of the hardest ways is starting from the green Vrata valley at the north face of the mountain.⠀ 🌿⠀ The steep mountains raise up from the green valley and the path takes you along the toughest via ferrata route towards the top of Triglav⠀ ⛰🧗‍♂️⠀ A challenging trip to the top, but you'll be treated with some gorgeous views of the valley down below⠀ ✨⠀ Did you ever do a via ferrata route?
Go play in the mountains, breathe the fresh air, enjoy the simple things . #visitidaho #idahogram #idahodaily #livingontheroad
