Aialik Bay Alaska!! The water here was getting icy as we got closer to the Aialik Glacier. Worth the boat ride in there if you have the chance!! . . . . . #alaska #aialikbay #aialikglacier #kenaipeninsula #kenaifjords #kenaifjordsnationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #bucketlist #adventurehard #landscape #landscapelovers #canon #7dmarkii #canon7dmarkii #sigma #teamncanon #canonphoto
Old Ironsides ⛵
This trip has been like a treasure hunt. There are so many hidden treasures out there. The #nationalparkservice does such a good job preserving them. . .Lily usually runs right by the signs, so mike takes a pic and we read it after we are back in the safety of A/C. . For some reason this one stood out. Lily read this sign and starred out to a field of thousands of chunks of crystallized petrified wood. (Probably trying to figure out how to get one home🤣) It was mesmerizing to her. . . #findyourpark #spendtimenow #seetheworld 🌍 #rvlifewithkids #havekidswilltravel #nationalparks #trustgod #traveldebtfree #petrifiedforestnationalpark #kidstraveltoo #wildernesskids #wildanddebtfree #trainupachild #kidsareablessing #godsearth #mykidsdrivemecrazysometimes
Morning hike on the north rim of Canyon de Chelly. This is actually a northern branch of Canyon de Chelly called Canyon del Muerto (I’ll get to why it got that name in a later posting)- this canyon is narrower and more rugged than the main canyon and most visitors to the area, if not going on a Navajo-led trip into the canyon, usually go to the south rim. The primary route into and out of Canyon de Chelly for the Navajo that still live in the canyon is through the mouth of the canyon on the west near the town of Chinle. There the canyon is wide and the walls are less than 100 feet high. But the deeper you go into the canyons, the taller the walls get but the elevation of the canyon floor stays the same- that’s because the canyon was cut into the slope of what is called the Defiance Uplift, a broad, forested plateau that includes the Chuska Mountains to the east of Canyon de Chelly. By the time you get to were were hiking this morning, the walls are easily over 1000 feet above the canyon floor with the elevation at the rim 7200 feet above sea level while the elevation at the opening is only 5800 feet above sea level. #CanyondelMuerto #CanyondeChelly #CanyondeChellyNationalMonument #Arizona #FindYourPark #NPS #Geology #Science #NationalParkService #landscape #landscapes #landscapephotography #landscapelovers #landscape_lovers #landscape_captures #ic_landscapes #squawking1200_CanyondeChelly
This are the Antelope House ruins at Canyon de Chelly National Monument from 1000 feet up on the canyon’s north rim. Under that grove of trees just below the ruins are two small houses- one belongs to one of our two Navajo guides, Ben, and the other belongs to his daughter. They are one of the 40 families that still live inside Canyon de Chelly. In the lower right of the photo you can make out some farm fields- Ben told us he didn’t plant anything this year as it’s been drier than usual. Antelope House is so named for the antelope drawings on the sunlit portion of the canyon wall (I’ll post a better picture of those). The ruins were once an 80-room multistory complex built by the Hopi. The first inhabitants of Canyon de Chelly were the Ancestral Puebloans. They were formally known as the Anasazi- but that name has fallen out of favor. When the archaeologists started studying the Four Corners region of the American Southwest, much of what got most academic studies started were assistance from the predominant Indian tribe in the region, the Navajo. The Navajo aren’t native to the area- believe it or not, they’re descended from the Athabascan tribes of Canada and they moved gradually south (the Apache are also descendants of the Athabascans). There’s been an uneasy co-existence between the Navajo and the Hopi and Pueblo tribes- the Hopi and the Pueblo are one of some 21 modern day Indian tribes that are descended from the Ancestral Puebloans. Well it tuns out “Anasazi” is a Navajo term that means “ancient enemies” and has derogatory overtones for the Hopi, Pueblo and other tribes that descended from the Ancestral Puebloans. #AntelopeHouseRuins #CanyondeChelly #CanyondeChellyNationalMonument #Arizona #FindYourPark #NPS #Geology #Science #NationalParkService #landscape #landscapes #landscapephotography #landscapelovers #landscape_lovers #landscape_captures #ic_landscapes #squawking1200_CanyondeChelly
They say a girl who cuts her hair is about to change her life...or go on a solo 10-day road trip! WHAAA!?💃🏼
A bittersweet weekend as my internship comes to a close. Working in my first National Park has been incredible! The friends I’ve made, the people I’ve met, and those I helped educate on history are invaluable to me. I will truly cherish this summer forever 💚. #internship #nationalparkservice #nps
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
Why aren’t we celebrating this more grandly? #womenshistory Repost from @nationalparkservice On this day in 1920, the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage. In 1848 the movement for women’s rights launched on a national level with the Seneca Falls Convention organized by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott. Following the convention, the demand for the vote became a centerpiece of the women’s rights movement. Stanton and Mott, along with Susan B. Anthony and other activists, raised public awareness and lobbied the government to grant voting rights to women. Explore the stories associated with the struggle for suffrage rights and learn about how women from diverse backgrounds and communities continued to demand greater civil liberties even after the passage of the 19th amendment at https://www.nps.gov/subjects/womenshistory/19th-amendment.htm .

I couldn't believe my eyes when I came up on this scene. I had never seen a lake so blue. The water at Crater Lake is so pure and deep that it absorbs all of the longer wavelengths of light, reflecting only the shortest rays. I didn't get a chance to hike up Mt. Scott, but this place... I'll be back for sure someday. #craterlake #craterlakenationalpark #crater #lake #oregon #wizardisland #nationalparkservice #travel #instatravel #travelgram #tourism #wander #explore #adventure #photography #travelphotography #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #naturegram #photooftheday #getoutside #findyourpark #fujifilm #x100f

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
Kouchubouguac National Park also has quite a few walking paths. Our first evening in the park we wandered out into "the bog". We learned the word "bog"can comes from a Celtic word meaning "slow". Hence you can get "bogged down". Its basically land that has enough decayed vegetation which is too soft to walk on. Sphagnum moss was also used in diapers (eww) and for medical treatments. #roadschool They say eventually the soggy landscape will take over the forest but for now this tower is still on solid ground right at the edge.
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
Tag someone who wouldn’t mind waking up here. Joshua Tree is located in the higher and cooler Mojave Desert, the special habitat of the tree for which the community and National Park were named—the Joshua tree. In our October 2015 issue, we discussed how the community of Joshua Tree became a seriously cool place for creatives. Check it out at the link in our bio. Photo by @candida. #traveldeeper

🦅🦎🌅🛤The hood-winked husband shows his anger, and the word jealous is flung in his face. Jealous husband equals betrayed husband. And there are women who look upon jealousy as synonymous with impotence, so that the betrayed husband can only shut his eyes, powerless in the face of such accusations.

Joshua Trees on Teutonia Peak Trail, Mojave National Preserve. This is a great hike! The Joshua trees here are prettier and fuller than the more dehydrated cousins in Joshua Tree NP. . Overall, I really liked the Preserve. It was a lovely combination of Death Valley NP and Joshua Tree NP. . . . #teresasigmon #travelpics #travelcalifornia #mojavedesert #joshuatree #mojavenationalpreserve #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #nationalparksusa #findyourpark #travelpics
Sophie and me snuggle together to stay warm in Sequoia National Park on a cool May evening. . Sophie is such a trooper, even in bear country!

日本,在1868年明治維新後,追隨西方工業化與現代化的腳步,建築素材也不例外,花磚便是當時蔚為風潮的裝飾材料。而當時台灣為日本的殖民地也接受了這些日製的花磚建材,在當時花磚是奢侈昂貴的物品,人們將它貼在房子外部的顯眼處,不但可以為平淡無奇的磚牆添上亮點又可以彰顯主人的身分地位 - 小編也和朋友一起買了10張花磚明信片呢是不是真的很美呢! #北山古洋樓 #金門背包客棧 #金門青年旅館 #金門背包客棧北山古洋樓 #北山古洋樓背包客棧 #kinmenhostel #金門民宿 #金門 #kinmen #金門観光 #kinmentravel #台湾旅行 #taiwan #風景 #歷史建築 #金門歷史建築 #worldheritage #ww2 #ww2history #coldwar #ig_photo #ig_taiwan #ig_kinmen #instagramtaiwan #lecia #huawei #國家公園 #金門國家公園 #nationalpark #nationalparkservice
We hiked the Navajo Loop Trail tonight in Bryce Canyon National Park so that we could see the “Wall Street” area. Some of the Douglas Fir trees down in the canyon are between 500 and 700 years old. #brycecanyon #brycecanyonnationalpark #hiking #nationalparks #nationalpark #findyourpark #utah #nationalparkservice
So this man right here is probably my biggest mentor, and the dude who helped jumpstart my career into federal service several years ago. It was great to work alongside him once again, this time as a sworn federal officer instead of his intern like the last time I saw him. Oh, I am also back in my home state working on the #ranchfire , the largest fire in California history right now. #federalofficer #usparkranger #parkranger #lifeofaparkranger #findyourpark #letsgoplaces #naturalresources #usforestservice #mendocinocomplex #mentor #police #policepics #lawenforcement #landmanagement #thinblueline #backtheblue #thingreenline #gamewarden #sheriff #wildlandfire #nationalparkservice #nps #experienceyouramerica #forestfire #firefighter #wildlandfirefighter

Day 51: Mt Shasta to Crater Lake. We woke up to a gorgeous view of Mt Shasta through the trees (last photo) then headed in to a very smokey Crater Lake NP. We could barely see the lake from all the smoke, I think the rangers told us they had about 15 fires start from lightening strikes and maybe 7 were still going. It did give the Pinnacles a nice eerie look though. . . . . . . . . #usroadtrip #roadtrip #usa #craterlake #craterlakenationalpark #craterlakeoregon #oregon #optoutside #mtshasta #flashback #usnationalparks #naturephotography #nature #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #scenary #scenicdrives #scenicroute #hiking #hike #camp #camping #campinglife

🏜Circa Summer 2017 - Double Arch - Oh Utah! What an adventure this was! Unsure as to who took this pic of me hopping the sandstone but am grateful they did. It was during the late Winter of 2017 when I so direly needed to rediscover my innate yearning for the outdoors to help cope with the loss of an angel and the end of a very beautiful yet trying relationship. We all have our own unique methods of dealing with challenging times & I personally find that being immersed in nature is what grounds me & helps put all scrambled thoughts in order. Utah became my escape. I’d been wanting to visit for a while but I wanted to do it right. I wanted to hit the trails, explore the parks, The Narrows, Arches, make memories & capture amazing photographs. And it arrived at the perfect moment. There was no better way to do it than with a group of aspiring geologists getting ready to take on a two week trip to the state that Summer. I just had to hop on that ship & boy am I glad I did. ❤️Cheers to nature, resilience & to Utah! It will forever be the state I treasure for having helped heal the soul! ☺️______________________________________________________ 🎧 #EddieVedder _ #Utah #doublearch #goutah #lifeofadventure #explore #archesnationalpark #findyourpark #wanderlust #happiness #outdoors #peaceofmind #landscape #goprohero5 #utahphotographer #moab #womenwhoexplore #vacation #photography #naturephotography #nationalparkservice #travel #nationalparks #choosemountains #adventure #neverstopexploring
