Second time at the Grand Canyon but just as breathtaking as the first! Caught this brilliant sunset at Hopi Point before a 7-mile jaunt along the Rim Trail. 📷: @gillianlovestravel #grandcanyon #wookierunsamerica

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

Spent a good part of my day in this little spot. My kind of reading nook ⛰💕 . . . 📸: @dynamite_areolas

#throwback to a year ago this week in Yosemite National Park on the valley floor. Hoping the next time I visit with @towkster70 that it looks like this again. I miss my winter wonderland and am anxiously awaiting its return. I posted another shot from this same day one month ago and am hoping the storms this week bring back this look. * * * #picsbymichele #californiathroughmylens #nature #thephotosociety #natgeoyourshot #photoarena_nature #goparks #nationalpark #yosemitenps #naturelover #visitcalifornia #teamcanon #yourshot #instagram #instanature #ip_wideview #scenic #capturelandscapes #landscape #landscapephotography #yosemite_national_park #bns_nature #canonglobal #nps102 #tbt #createscenery #nationalparkgeek #the59parks #moodygrams

South Rim of the Grand Canyon. It is hard to perceive the vastness of this wonder.
Mid-December sunsets in the Estes Park area of Colorado happen around 4:30 PM. This is bizarre to me and seems very unnatural. But it’s science. Or something. And for someone with limited experience in the mountains (something I am working hard to change), it’s not an automatic assumption that you have to account for the height of the mountains when trying to figure out how much time you have for good light. Again, science. With a little topography and geometry mixed in. . This had me scrambling around (frozen) Bear Lake looking for compositions as the sun was quickly descending behind the Rocky range, the light fading more rapidly than I had planned. Oh, and this was also my first experience wearing microspikes, so that added another layer of adventure to this comedic episode. . It paid off, though. This is Longs Peak from the far side of Bear Lake. Reaching 14,259 feet, Longs Peak is the tallest mountain in the park and one of 58 “14ers” in the state of Colorado. . #Nikon D7200, 24-70mm f/2.8
#throwbackthursday to warmer weather! This is Robeling's Delaware Aqueduct at @UpperDelawareNPS which spans #Pennsylvania and #NewYork . The Delaware Aqueduct, or Roebling Bridge, is the oldest existing wire cable suspension bridge in the United States. Construction began in 1847. It was designed and built under the supervision of John A. Roebling. Prior to the aqueduct, boats had to cross the Delaware River (which had a slackwater dam to pool the water to safely let boats cross) to go from one side of the canal to the other. The aqueduct operated for fifty years until the Delaware & Hudson Canal closed in 1898. It was converted to a private toll bridge which operated until 1979. In 1980 the @NationalParkService purchased the aqueduct and began a #preservation project to restore the structure. Almost all of the ironwork - cables, saddles, and suspenders - are the original materials. All of the wood decking was replaced to Roebling's original specifications. After restoration it reopened as a vehicular bridge. #pa #ny #nyhistory #pahistory #historygirl #SpreadTheHistory #roeblingaqueduct #delawareaqueduct #nationalpark #nps #nationalparkservice #goparks #nationalparkgeek #architecture #archi_ologie #canal #suspensionbridge #roebling #delawareriver #upperdelawareriver #goparks #travelblog #travelblogger #blog #blogger #FindYourPark
Went to the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, and was able to take a bit of a walk around town, looking for Wild Spaces hidden in the middle of town!

I’m still new to southwestern archaeology but I’m enjoying every moment I spend looking for buried treasure down in southern Utah. A great example of ancestral Puebloan granaries can be found in the Island in the Sky district of CNP off the Aztec Butte trail. These structures were constructed ~800 years ago to store domesticates (corns, beans, squash) and wild foods.

Our General Sherman patch is right at home amongst the Sequoias! While The General Sherman is the largest tree in the world today, it is not the tallest, widest, or the oldest. 100 completely useless internet points to the first comment with those 3 trees. #SPIRIToftheWEST // #SOULoftheWILD
Just returned home from a week in Tromsø, Norway 🇳🇴 chasing the northern lights with @thetravelcreatives. We partnered with @pukkatravels to experience the magic of region with style. In 7 sleepless days we drove a @teslamotors , climbed Segla mountain, went sailing, drove snowmobiles, chilled at a vibey nature camp and even hung out in a hot tub on an arctic sailing ship. I can’t wait to share it all with you guys! Special shout out to some legends that made the trip unforgettable @perrirothenberg @findredrainey @maxtagramz @alex_broadstock @krisroller @sammydee1 @vaerfast
From this one time a snowstorm snuck up on me at 12,000 ft.
Doesn’t this Banyan tree look like it can grant you your deepest wish? 💫 [Pipiwai Trail, Haleakalā National Park, Maui]
Stopped by Washington DC to visit the National Mall. Quick visit with a short hike to all my faves... Washington Monument was closed due to construction so I caught it from another angle that had to suffice. Guess where this shot is from... . . . . . #thenationalmall #nationalmall #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparklife #nps #nationalparkgeek #national_park_photography #americasbestidea #findyourpark #hikelife #goparks #getoutside #goforahike #optoutside #travel #travelstoke #takeahike #washingtondc #visitdc #shotoniphone #parkjunkieforlife
Although I enjoy the desert adventure a lot - you probably can tell that by seeing my profile full of desert colors, the morning fog and golden sun light in the redwood forest is just irresistible! This misty forest is the famous Muir Woods. The oldest tree here is at least 1200 years old!! To beat the crowd you need to get up early and reach the entrance when it opens. New parking and reservation rules started in min Jan. so make sure to reserve a spot beforehand 😎. . #fujifilm
