Grand Canyon West. Winters don’t give us much chance to explore most of the national parks, as they become more and more inaccessible with each passing day. But the west rim of the Grand Canyon gives us some beautiful views of the Canyon valley without having to hike much. A perfect place to go with family and kids. . . . . . . . #grandcanyonwestrim #grandcanyonwest #thegrandcanyon #grandcanyonarizona #arizona #arizonawinter #nationalparks #grandcanyonnationalpark
Oof there's nothing like a good gorge sometimes... #gorge #nationalparks #gladidonthavevertigo
We visited the Cotswold. Sweet honey hued villages, sheep filled hills and as many art galleries as your eyes can feast upon. Ahhh just beautiful! Escape the city every moment you can 💫
Before this area became a National Park, a fellow named Hale Tharp used to graze his cattle over the summers in some of the meadows. He fashioned an old, fallen hollow Giant Sequoia into this one of a kind "log cabin" ;-) ————-#education #history #nationalparks #sequioanationalpark #sequioas #gianttrees #cabins #hollowtree #woodworks #forests #coolstuff #naturepics #naturediscovery #californiacaptures #hikingadventures #campersofig #placestoexplore #experiencenature #mindblowing #matthirt #travels #traveler #getouside #lifeisbeautiful #hikingpath #cabininthewoods
Glacially-polished granite looks insane under the light of the rising sun ☀️ ⠀ ⠀ 📷@mblockk
Not bad for a desert huh? Would you hike this ? Follow @nationalparkpeople for more
Not a bad place to start the day 🏊‍♀️🏊‍♀️🏊‍♀️
LHR Run.. keepin it real zone by zone. 🍃🗿the breeze was a welcome change along with the partial shade. #lightbro #fuelyourpassion #nokkonthreads
Check out this amazing post from @_layvi_ Another picture from Karijini National Park. When down in one of the canyons, sometimes you can only get further if you walk through the water. And sometimes the water can be a little higher as you can see 😉💦✌️ Luckily, we were warned before and had our swimsuits underneath 👙😅👍 ▫️ #australia_shotz #karijininationalpark ******************************************* • • • #karijini #nationalparks #canyonlands Tag @beautiful.au to be featured!

. کاراکال، یکی از هشت گربه‌سان ایران و یکی از ۴۴ گربه کوچک دنیاست. اخیرا در پارک ملی بمو تصویری از این گربه زیبا برای اولین بار ثبت شد. حالا علاوه بر پلنگ ایرانی و گربه وحشی، کاراکال نیز از گربه‌سانان گزارش شده از پارک است. — عکس از منطقه حفاظت شده بافق @javadnajafi28 — برای دانستن بیش‌تر در مورد گربه‌های کوچک، به این صفحه سر بزنید: @smallwildcats Caracal is one of the eight and 44 feline species in Iran and in the world respectively. Recently, a footage of a caracal was captured in Bamu National Park for the first time. Watch out @smallwildcats to know more about small wild cats in the world.

secrets of the caves
Listed as Least Concern in #IUCNRedList and listed on #CITES Appendix II, the Serval, Leptailurus serval, is relatively abundant and widespread. It occurs widely through sub-Saharan #Africa , with the exception of tropical rainforests and the Saharan desert. However, the Serval is possibly extinct in Algeria. The species is commonly recorded in most major national parks and reserves, meanwhile, their status outside reserves is uncertain. . Servals specialise in preying on small mammals, in particular rodents, with birds, reptiles and arthropods being secondary prey species. Although Servals very rarely prey upon livestock (and indeed may even be beneficial to crop farmers due to their predilection for rodents), in rural areas throughout Africa, they are sometimes persecuted for taking poultry and indiscriminate predator control methods practiced by pastoralists frequently kill them. . The major threat to the species is wetland habitat loss and degradation. Wetlands harbour comparatively high rodent densities compared with other habitat types, and form the core areas of Serval home ranges. Of secondary importance is degradation of grasslands through annual burning followed by over-grazing by domestic livestock, leading to reduced abundance of small mammals. Sometimes other predators, such as leopards, hyaenas and lions, kill young and even adult Servals. . The key to Serval conservation is wetland conservation. It is crucial to investigate Serval habitat requirements and to create an updated action plan for the species. The Serval can be used as an umbrella species for #savanna biotopes; and as an indicator for the heavily endangered humid savanna #biotope . .

i’d eat that cake
In the middle of the forest ❄️✨ This is my happy place! ✌🏻
Where's the place that you feel most creatives!! For us it's anywhere where you can see the mountains ⛰ @thelittlebrave
The famous "rwanda tea" is grown in the cool temperature provided by the surrounding tropical forest and the high altitude that characterize the country. #rwanda #tea #teaplantations 🌿 #teabag #teatime #plantation #growingplants #agriculture #agribusiness #agripassion #minagri #nyungwe #nyungweforest #nationalparks #tourism #agripreneur #touring #teaprocessing #rwandanziza #rwandaful #heartofafrica #exploring #explore

Can you be awake and asleep at the same time? The wise pup said (eyes are still closed) "No human. You don't have to do that." and got back to sleep immediately. I wrote this for anyone who loves to take power nap😊 and this cute puppy. #picoftheday #landscape #nationalparks #nature #puppy #dogstagram #dog #plitvice #nap #sunshine #croatia #sleepypuppy #photo #nofilter #낮잠 #멍스타그램 #꾸벅 #사진 #크로아티아 #小狗 #照 #克罗地亚 #午睡 #打瞌睡 #午觉 #狗 #阳光
I am in awe of Tasmanias nature. This flower looks like an orchid but is a Victorian Christmas Bush that can grow as high as 5 meters. #tasmania #nationalpark #australia #photography #hiking #tracks #nature #igram_nature #australianationalparks #tasmanianationalpark #nationalparks #ilovenature #mountains #preservenature #flower #gianttrees #flowers #flowersofinstagram #botany
So many fabulous places to walk and explore in the Glen Innes Highlands.

Does this count as bouldering? 😂
I love to fall in imaginations❤️🙃 or Pareidolia, a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus, usually an image or a sound, by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists (e.g. in random data) . .
