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

This morning’s Citizenship ceremony at @biscaynenps was so moving. It was the children’s swearing in and to see so many people from 18 different nations embrace the United States as their home, was heartwarming⠀ ⠀ 📍: Biscayne National Park, FL⠀ 📅 : January 2018⠀ ⠀ #travel #explore #learn #nationalparkgeek

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

Perfect views are found in Yosemite. ••••• Thanks to Sonja @thenationalparksgirl for the perfect moment. ------- Over New Year’s weekend @alexspaeth and I visited Yosemite for the third time, but it was only the first time we left the valley floor (thanks to storms on past visits) and wow, was I blown away! ------- #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite

😍 For my fundraiser for the National Park Foundation, I'm sharing this picture I took of a marmot in Grand Teton National Park last summer during a hike to Lake Solitude. Tina Lasisi spotted this little marmot 20 yards away from where we were next to the trail. This rodent was amazingly brave and curious and did not shy away as we cautiously got closer. For 15 minutes, we gawked at each other until Tina and I decided to leave our new friend in peace. This is also why I created this fundraiser. National Parks are full of surprises and you experience encounters you will not forget. If you are a wonderful person and want to participate in the fundraiser, the link is in bio!

Nights in the North are indeed special. ••••• Thanks to the good folks at Alaska National Parks @alaskanps and Kenai Fjords @kenaifjordsnps for the wonderful view. •••••• #northernlights generally occur along the auroral ovals, which center on the magnetic poles and roughly correspond with the Arctic and Antarctic circles.

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. Can’t wait for summer and glaciated granite views like this one. . . . . . . . . #nationalpark #usinterior #nationalparkgeek #fypyes #nps #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #the59parks #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #getoutstayout #wildernessculture #wearethewild #wildernesssociety #flow397 #visitcalifornia #instagram #instagood #landscape

While the sun has set on this anniversary day of Dr. Martin Luther King's birth, we must remember that we shall overcome. While the original thought behind Dr. King's message still remains, in this day and age we can view it with a widened view. Stay strong. See the course. Stay on target. (Taken at this morning's sunrise). #seenonmyrun #mlkday2018 #freshair #optoutside #nationalparkfoundation #BMRDCMLK2018 #running #wilrunsdc #runyourworld #runnerslife #rundc #runnersofinstagram #savepublicland #findyourpark #resist
"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 ]
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
Are you the kind of person who has a special pair of earrings that you wear every day? These square oxidized Yellowstone earrings with keum boo are that earring for me. I've been wearing the 12 mm square earrings lately. I like the slightly larger earrings as they are more visible. What's your favorite pair of earrings that you wear everyday.
