Mesa Verde || Photo by @heytommalone || The Mesa Verde cliff dwellings are one of Colorado’s prized treasures. These 900-year-old Puebloan structures were some of the first National Parks and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, fully preserving them for future generations to experience. ——— Tag us in your favorite Colorado photos for the chance to be featured. ——— #colorado #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #nationalparkgeek #coloradooriginals
Worth waking up at 5:00, hands down.
It took a couple of visits here to get the right combination of clouds and light, but it often pays off to be patient. . Banff National Park, Alberta .

Great views at the end of the Watchman Trail. We recommend doing this 2.7-mile roundtrip hike in the morning, when the switchbacks are at least shaded for the uphill climb.
In collaboration with Singapore National Park Board @nparksbuzz , we led our first community workshop last Saturday in Hort Park. It was full of joyous moment! We had a participants ranges from 7yo to 60yo, some came alone, some came with partner, some brought their kids. 2 hours of fun filled modern floral workshop, and we couldn't be happier! . @nparksbuzz Thankyou for offering your beautiful event and space. To all who attended and came by, thankyou so much for such delightful morning. I am so amazed by the great energy and how all of you independently drew all you tote bags. . Much love, Marilyn.
Most people know I'm on a road trip by now, many probably have no clue why. My young cousin took his own life in October. My other cousin @meg_heals ,his sister, is an artist and made his Memorial one to remember. So much so that I cannot see a purple flower without thinking of Q. His favorite song was Purple Summer, and Meg arranged a beautiful performance at the Memorial to this song. Since Q, unfortunately we have both experienced more loss. My uncle and Meg's father took his own life very recently. She's had two close friends pass as well since October and I lost the most important person in my life, my Gram in February. In my opinion that is too much loss for 9 months. But instead of staying in bed and dwelling on a life we cannot change, we are out in search of our own Purple Summer. We are choosing to feel even if the feelings aren't ideal. We are choosing to live. I caught this shooting star the other night in this photo and thought for sure it was our lost loved ones letting us know they are there for us, letting us know we are on the right path. 💜 #purpleSummer #milkyway #milkywaychaser #Nikon #nikonphotography
Epic backpacking trip in @denalinps complete! An arduous 6 day, 4 night trek through every terrain, many types of weather, and seeing tons of wildlife. From sunny to sudden rain shower (or sleet) - the long days did not disappoint. Not sure any other trip we do will compare to the no trails and no campsites wilderness that is Denali. . . . #backpacking #hiking #hikingviews #backpackingadventures #denalinps #denalinationalpark #denali #optoutside #forceofnature #camping #backcountry #backcountrycamping #exploreyourparks #alaskasummer #alaska #wildalaska #wilderness #viewsfordays #riverviews #rivercrossing #glaciers #mountains #nps #bears #nonrevadventures #nationalparkgeek #womenwhohike #hikingadventures
Driving home and I miss Maine so much already. I may be looking at unrealistic home purchases as Craig drives to console myself.
And a river runs through it. •••••• Thanks to Austin @austinbwalker for the Zion goodness. ・・・ Well, I’m back from an amazing trip out west. Sadly, my original plan to head back to Yosemite for the remainder of the week was cut short due to personal issues and the threat of wildfires in the areas around the park. Hopefully, I will see this plan come to fruition in the future. For now, I’m back exploring a little closer to home. ~~~~~~~~~~ • • • #OurPlanetDaily #Earthpix #NakedPlanet #OurLonelyPlanet #Wanderlust #NeverStopExploring #OptOutside #TheOutbound #CampingCollective #HikingCulture #NationalPark #NationalParkService #NPS #FindYourPark #NationalParkGeek #Utah #Beutahful #UtahUnique #WowUtah #IGSouthwest #WeRUtah #WestbySouthwest #YesVisitUtah #YoUtah #NaturalUtah ——— #nationalparkgeek

Make the day a beautiful one in a National Park. •••••• Thanks to Ross @rossthompson.photo for the wonderful inspiration. ・・・ Singularity North Cascades National Park, Washington __________ I just finished up another blog entry and photo series on my website about my recent 10 day PNW road trip to talk about my adventures alongside a series of photos. I’d be stoked for you guys to check it out! I really enjoy writing on occasion, but I try to keep my instagram captions somewhat limited so I don’t bore you guys to death. Link in bio, or http://rossthompson.photo/epic-pnw-roadtrip/ . __________ The image you see here is “Singularity”, my favorite composition and photo from the trip. I was fortunate enough to spend an entire evening alone in this spot in complete serenity and solitude. During this particular sunset, there weren’t any clouds in sight and I had nearly given up and packed up my gear. Other than eventually sleeping, I didn’t really have anywhere else to be and I decided to wait it out just in case. Sure enough, this single cloud rolled through the sky and made for a special, intimate scene. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that this single cloud adds more character than a lot of skies that I have shot that are full of colorful clouds. * * * * * #pnwonderland #pnwlife #pnwexplored #cascadiaexplored #upperleftusa #greatnorth #ournwadventurelife #northcascades #findyourpark #washington #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #roamtheplanet #lensbible #visualsoflife #wildernessculture #depthsofearth #briskoutdoors #gramslayers #chasinglight #thisworldexists #planetdiscovery #moodygrams #mountainlife ——— #nationalparkgeek
Clouds rolling through the sunset over Shenandoah National Park. . . . . .*Geeky Camera information below* . . . This is an In-Camera stacked multiple exposure of 180 half-second shots. The Olympus EM-5 Mark II does this type of shot in "Live Composite" mode. The fastest shutter time available is 1/2 of a second, so you will have to use a polarizer or neutral density filter to get your shutter speed that slow. even with all that, this technique only works about 1% of the time because the clouds in the sun really have to cooperate... But when they do, it's one of the coolest things I've ever seen!
Love this quote! But it’s a bit of a mystery who to credit. A NPS movie we watched said “old native proverb” but a quick Google search credits Wendell Berry with an earlier version. Over the years the quote has been modified, but the meaning remains the same. 🌎 • “We can learn about it from exceptional people of our own culture, and from other cultures less destructive than ours. I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children.” —The Unforeseen Wilderness: An Essay on Kentucky’s Red River Gorge, 1971 • #nature #quote #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #nps #travel #explore #roadtrip #keepexploring #nationalparkgeek

Click the link in our bio and get it! 🏵🌻🏝🌄 😻 😍 💛 😊 People go to Africa and confirm what they already have in their heads and so they fail to see what is there in front of them. This is what people have come to expect. It's not viewed as a serious continent. It's a place of strange, bizarre and illogical things, where people don't do what common sense demands.

Heading to Acadia this morning.. long story short.. I abandoned my car at a gas station (with 0 miles till empty), that has pumps from 60’s, are without credit card technology and the store doesn’t open till 8. I luckily decided to bring my bike today, so I left my car behind and rode in the dark 3 miles the rest of the way. While I didn’t get the Milky Way photos I set out to take, the bike ride and sunrise made up for it! I’ve never run out of gas before, does this count? #acadianationalpark . . . . . . . . . #visitmaine #scenicme #themainemag #maineisgorgeous #wildmainers #igersmaine #mainetheway #igersnewengland #mainecoast #hikemaine #scenesofme #discoverglobe #vacationland #yesmaine #maineoutdoors #mainething #naturalnewengland #exploremaine #mainetheway #onlyin207 #mainelife #acadia #nationalparks #mainelife #nationalparkgeek #scenicme #igersnewengland #eastcoastshooters #capturemaine
This is the pic I got from the exact spot I was standing in my last post. One of my favorite captures I took while visiting Grand Teton National Park. I will always remember how the morning light so beautifully greeted the mountains. . . . . . #tetons #grandtetonnationalpark #nationalparkgeek #lensbible #justgoshoot #awesome_earthpix #earthfocus #theworldshotz #roamtheplanet #jaw_dropping_shots #discoverearth #thebest_capture #depthsofearth #earthtodolist #capture_the_universe #wyoming #igersmountains #explore #adventure #capture #photography #photographer #landscape #sunrise #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #natgeotravel #artofvisuals #ig_color #earth_shotz
A welcomed feeling washed over me as I walked out on the cliffs in Acadia. I spent the first half of my day driving the winding coastal roads as the sun rose. Then it was off to an hour long boat ride to photograph the puffins. I had pushed myself and my skills trying to get clean shots of wildlife, in situations I'd never been in. As I scurried out on the rocks, I knew I was back doing what I enjoy the most. The slightest bits of sunset color squeezed their way through, just long enough. Even if there wasn't a shot to be taken, it's always nice to just be out in the open, connected only with your thoughts and natural beauty.

It’s ParkSquare Sunday! Earlier this week, I polled folks to see whether they preferred San Francisco Maritime NHP or Salem Maritime NHS. It was close, but the west coast edged the east coast!⠀ ⠀ This is one of my favorite early ParkSquares...I started to really think about how the images might fit together, particularly with complementary colors. I really like the blues and whites in this one created from details along the Hyde Street Pier. ⠀ ⠀ Is there a park YOU’D like to see a square from? I have them for about 1/6 of the parks now, so let me know some favorites and I’ll try to accommodate!⠀ ⠀ #nationalpark #nationalparks #findyourpark #nationalparkobsessed #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #ibrakeforbrownsigns #nationalparkservice #SanFranciscoMaritimeNationalHistoricalPark #SanFrancisco #ship #sailing #sanfranciscomaritime #sanfranciscomaritimenationalhistoricalpark #parksquare #parksquares #npsparksquares #parksquaresunday
------🏞 String Lake 🏞------ : : ~~ Everyone and everything that shows up in our life is a reflection of something that is happening inside of us. 🤔 :: ➡ Alan Cohen ⬅ : : -- Brought my IK (inflatable kayak) to the Grand Teton and wanted to kayak one of the lakes out there. Paddled String Lake as recommended by @kristenryanphotography ! 😊 : : -- We got there early in the morning and this is a reflection of Mount Moran! It was breathtaking! 😍 -- My husband isn't the outdoorsy type but went kayaking with me!  It's hard to resist those views... 😄🏞🌊 : : -- String Lake in Grand Teton National Park is a 100-acre glacial lake and the place to be on a hot summer day!  String Lake is shallow, so the water is warm, and the winds are usually calm! 🏞 : : 🌸 Thank you, Everyone for all the likes and comments on my previous posts...

🌲A la impresionante naturaleza del Parque Nacional del Gran Teton hay que añadir las múltiples construcciones históricas que salpican toda su extensión 🏡Si visitáis el Parque Nacional de Yellowstone os recomendamos que dediquéis al menos un día a visitar este otro parque algo más desconocido, que os dejará con la boca abierta 😱 Tiene una carretera panorámica con innumerables miradores. Nosotros íbamos a dedicarle 3-4 horas y al final echamos todo el día. ¡¡Nos quedamos con ganas de pasar más días!!💘 #grandteton #nationalparkgeek #usa #eeuu #createexplore #collectivelycreate #beautifuldestinations #stayandwander #globalcapture #exploretocreate #natureonly #nationalpark #naturelover #landscape #landscapelovers #nature #visittheusa #wonderful_places #wildernessculture #wilderness #grandtetonnationalpark #wyoming #discover_wyoming #visitwyoming #mygrandteton #mondofotodelmes #photooftheday #picoftheday #jackson #tetonrange
