#Repost from @danielgross with @regram.app ... So full of joy for the huge gathering of National Park Geeks last night at Joshua Tree. It’s amazing getting 60+ Geeks together for the sunset and to gaze at the Milky Way. Thanks to all that attended. 🙏 #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #onepercentfortheplanet #optoutside #abc7eyewitness #sunset #meetup #milkywaychasers #socal #jtnpa #summerinthedesert 196/365
Always hard to say adios to Moab when Arches puts on a sunset like this. Til next time Moab! #moab #utah #utahisrad #archesnationalpark @archesnps #sunset

#flatranger loved his ride on the International, a 100 year old lake steamer, for the trip down Waterton Lake with NatGeo expert extraordinaire #stevekluge #natgeoexpeditions #nationalparkfoundation
Good morning Corona Arch! First time out here - awesome scenery and a fun hike. Corona Arch is 140’ by 105’ in case you were wondering just how big that thing is! #coronaarch #moab #utah #utahisrad
It’s not all hiking and exploring for #flatranger . He needs to eat and sleep like the rest of us. #lakemcdonaldlodge turns out to be a magical place and he looks forward to returning. #GlacierNPS #npfoundation #nationalparkfoundation #natgeoexpeditions #findyourpark
Clamberin’ around Canyonlands! Don’t overlook this park and Mesa Arch specifically if you are in the area! Photo credit: @alexandra_abroad
Snowballs in July...anyone? #flatranger made the short hike from the Logan Pass visitor center at #GlacierNPS to the Hidden Lake Overlook. I helped him keep his feet dry crossing the snow fields. #npfoundation #nationalparkfoundation #natgeoexpeditions #findyourpark
We made it to our 20th National Park! Crater Lake is GORGEOUS. The water looks inviting, but honestly it was like 45 degrees and I can’t deal with that. Only Jordan was brave enough to swim -Emma
#flatranger made the short hike up to Avalanche Lake in #GlacierNPS where he met a real 3D Park Ranger. #npfoundation #natgeotravel #nationalparkfoundation #natgeoexpeditions #findyourpark
Meet #flatranger , who traveled with us to #GlacierNPS last week. He loved the view from Apgar almost as much as we did! Stay tuned for more updates as we recap our amazing trip to and through the Crown of the Continent. #npfoundation #natgeotravelpic #nationalparkfoundation
4 miles down today with these ladies! It went SO MUCH better than Wednesday! With a couple hard days, I not only needed this run, but I needed it to be a good one. Happy to have such great company and encouragement while I get back into the swing of things! #trainwithtristate #tristaterunning #tristaterunningcompany #tsrc #charitymiles #nps #nationalparkfoundation #runner #runnergirl #runnersofinstagram #womensrunningcommunity #momswhorun #halfmarathontraining #motivation #workout #cardio #justrun #lovetorun

A line of cars is seen in the distance as the sun sets over Delicate Arch in Arches National Park.

And finally a view from near the campground as another day ends.  Have a good night!
#tbt - #Glacier was exhilarating to say the least. Especially with freezing cold swims to stand on an iceberg! It was probably the most anticipated park for both Madison and me. We had heard legends of the epic beauty. It was so fun to actually get there and experience it for ourselves. We had also heard that the park can be VERY crowded in the summer. We were still expecting some crowds, but we were so surprised to find almost nobody else visiting the park. The roads were literally empty. Just driving around this park is inspiring. The going to the sun road takes you up these glacial carved valleys and shows you the power of rock and ice. Visiting this park should be mandatory for all humans. • • • • • • • • • • #nationalpark #nationalparks #nps100 #findyourpark #goparks #npmillenials #nationalparkfoundation #nps #nationalparksusa #americasbestidea #nationalparkgeek #radparks #optoutside #livelifeoutside #beautifuldestinations #rewild #moderndayexplorer #gorediscoveramerica #theoutbound #alifealive #getoutstayout #lifeofadventure #neature #getoutside #betheadventure #greettheoutdoors #neverstopexploring #staywild
One of these times when I visit Delicate Arch I’ll have to take the shorter hike to the viewing area just to get a different perspective on it, but I just love how rewarding the longer hike to the arch is. . Dropping down into the arch area after hiking up the incline and along the cliff side is just so satisfying, I tend to hang out until long after the sun sets, just because the area has such a cool feel to it.
These "mushrooms" form as a result of less dense deposits being eroded away after millions of years. The top of the column often plays host to a piece of petrified wood or, in this case, a rock. These are scattered throughout the Petrified Forest and are most notably abundant in the Badlands and blue Mesa from what I could tell. This is in Blue Mesa. #petrifiedforest #bluemesa #nationalpark #arizona nature #natureporn #naturephotography #nationalparkfoundation #hike #hiking #daytrip #backpacking #adventure #adventurelife #thenationalparkspass
On the way to Emerald Lake in Rocky Mountain NP! #rockymountainnationalpark #colorado #emeraldlake #happylittletrees
First National Park down for the trip. Santa Cruz Island was an absolute blast. Getting to see a blue whale, dolphins and the island fox was super cool. Baby S also enjoyed his first dip into the Pacific. Onward to the next adventure! #islandpackers #nps #channelislandsnationalpark #nationalparkfoundation #findyourpark #foundmypark #patagonia #kidco #gianttrees #shadeisforlosers #babyadventure #rudersgowest #pacificocean #sunburnt #shouldvewornmoresunscreen #juniorranger #santacruzisland #dolphins #bluewhale #earlytobedearlytorise
Many reasons to visit Yellowstone National Park. Besides the mighty Yellowstone River with its lower and upper falls and the areas unique geothermal activity it’s also a hot spot for wildlife. If you visit hopefully you’re lucky enough to catch a glimpse of one of these lovely creatures. Proceeds from each purchase are donated directly to the Yellowstone Wolf Project. #yellowstone #wolf #yellowstonenationalpark #getoutside #yellowstoneforever #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkfoundation #sticker #decal #souviner #wolfpack #wolvesofinstagram #wolvesofyellowstone #yellowstonewolf #yellowstonewolves #yellowstoneforever #yellowstoneriver #upperfalls #lowerfalls #donate #hiking #doyourpart #wolfproject #wildlife #wildanimals #parksproject #outside #nationalparkservice #nationalparks #waterfall #savethewolves drawn by @handofjason
On our mission to #KeepAmericaWild , we’ll be exploring a different park each week. First up is the very first National Park: Yellowstone. Check our stories to learn more! 📷: @2cloudpeak
After experiencing the craziness of the park on Saturday, we decided to just attend the park worship service instead of driving out to Estes for normal church (serious, the lines to get IN the park were ridiculous). Afterwards, we drove up the Old Fall River Road to the top of the pass and the Alpine Visitor Center. It was quite the scenic drive! The old road is one-way, dirt, and switchbacks up the mountain to the tundra with some incredible views along the way. The Alpine Tundra is it's own unique environment - the growing season is a short 6 weeks and animals must adapt to the strong, ultra violet light and harsh temperatures. We live on a pretty amazing planet! 🌎 #currensdriveeast
Alcatraz is pretty much dominated by various birds who run the show. Who knows what happens when the tourists leave on the last boat. One thing's sure: this here's your warden. By the look on his face you better tidy up, I reckon. #wings_ru Rebel Pops. . . . . . . . #rebels_united #sanfrancisco #sanfranciscoca #sanfranciscocity #sf #sanfran #califorinia_igers #california #conquer_ca #visitcalifornia #ig_colorshot #ig_brilliant #ournaturedays #natures_marvels #nature_perfection #nationalparkfoundation #national_park_photography #nationalparkgeek #alcatraz #alcatrazisland #alcatrazprison #findyourpark #usinterior #usparksandmonuments #ig_skyvibes #sky_sultans #np10k #cloudzdelight #birdshots

We spent a long weekend off grid playing in Rocky Mountain NP with my extended family. While the hike to Emerald Lake was the most crowded of any hike we have ever been on in a NP (and that's saying something!), and the park has a thing for afternoon thunderstorms, we still had a blast. Soaking up family time before we head east for 5 months was just perfect. My kids were amazed at how similar the feel of the area was to Banff and Jasper which we visited last summer. Turns out....they are all the Rockies so it totally makes sense, right?! . . . #currensdriveeast

I’m hosting a National Park Geek meetup this Saturday at Joshua Tree. I’d love to see you in the evening for the sunset and Stars. Meeting at Geology Tour Rd and Park Blvd after 7pm. The Milky Way comes out around 9:30. Bring your manual camera and tripod and we will share how to photograph the stars if you like. Let me know if you have any questions. @nationalparkgeek #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #jtnpa #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #onepercentfortheplanet #abc7eyewitness #milkyway #astrophotography #milkywaychasers 190/365
When summer storms start to roll over the Southwestern deserts, don't run for the nearest building to escape.  Head to the nearest scenic area (obviously still stay safe from lightning etc.), and get ready for some of the best picture opportunists you'll get. For one thing summer desert storms rarely last more than a few minutes.  Water will pour like a monsoon but the storm is so small it will blow over in 15minutes or miss you completely. Secondly, you're in a desert.  Water pouring from the sky in vast amounts is a rarity and you were lucky enough to be a part of it.  Dance in the parking lot as it rains and enjoy it.  With summer temperatures what they are it won't take more than a few minutes to dry off when that sun comes back out anyway.
We're partnering with the National Park Foundation to help #KeepAmericaWild ! To kick off our partnership with @GoParks , we teamed up with @undercanvasofficial , @dominomag , and @parksproject to send a lucky winner and a friend to America’s first national park - Yellowstone. Link in bio to enter.
