Porto's botanical garden is so beautiful. What a wonderful way to spend a few hours. This tree was a "super tree" that looked like 3 trees morphed into one and was a perfect spot to rest after walking all day. Tons of cool paths, flowers, and statues all around this park. I would have never discovered this place if I had not made new friends while I was here. They insisted we go and I am so happy we did. . . #nationalpark #nature #nationalparkgeek #nationalparks #findyourpark #travel #nps #roadtrip #nationalparkservice #naturephotography #nationalparklife #optoutside #naturelovers #hiking #landscape #wanderlust #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #nationalparkusa #nationalparkweek #adventure #explore #nationalparkcentennial #landscapephotography #nationalparktrust #neverstopexploring #nationalparksusa #nationalparkthy #nationalparksweek #photography

A National Seashore, in the United States, is any of a number of coastal areas reserved by the federal government for recreational use by the public. Padre Island National Seashore separates the Gulf of Mexico from the Laguna Madre, one of a few hypersaline lagoons in the world. The park protects 70 miles of coastline, dunes, prairies, and wind tidal flats teeming with life. It is a safe nesting ground for the Kemp’s ridley sea turtle and a haven for over 380 bird species. It also has a rich history, including the Spanish shipwrecks of 1554.

The American white pelican rivals the trumpeter swan, with a similar overall length, as the longest bird native to North America. Both very large and plump, it has an overall length of about 50–70 inches. It has a wingspan of about 95–120 in. The species also has the second largest average wingspan of any North American bird, after the California condor. This large wingspan allows the bird to easily use soaring flight for migration. In the breeding season, there is a laterally flattened "horn" on the upper bill, located about one-third the bill's length behind the tip. This is the only one of the eight species of pelican to have a bill "horn". The horn is shed after the birds have mated and laid their eggs. Outside the breeding season the bare parts become duller in color, with the naked facial skin yellow and the bill, pouch, and feet an orangy-flesh color.

Went to DTLA today to hear @mikahmey speak about his 3 yr journey to visit all 417 NPS sites. It was a great talk and a most excellent adventure. You can hear the full talk on the Live Story at my @nationalparkgeek account. Give him a follow as he finishes the journey. @gatewaytonaturela @wnpa_1938 #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #onepercentfortheplanet #wnpa1938 #npsjourneys #seeamerica #dtla #pico #olverastreet #losangeles #abc7eyewitness #itsaparkthing 97/365
#WheresBuddyBisonBeen ? #BuddyBison hiked to #CampRapidan (formerly known as #CampHoover ) in #ShenandoahNationalPark and had a delicious repast on the deck. This home, nicknamed #TheBrownHouse , was the vacation spot for #PresidentHoover in the 1930s. It is beautifully situated between two creeks. #DepressionEra #MillProng #Rapidan #RapidanCamp #NationalHistoricLandmark #AdventuresWithBuddy #NationalParkTrust #NationalParkService #NPS #OptOutside #NoChildLeftInside 🌲 🌱

Had a great opportunity this week to learn with local elementary school students through engaging activities from park rangers and teachers at Lake Mead and Red Rock Canyon. I know these parks will be in good hands with how smart and creative these kids are. Thank you to the rock stars from the National Park Trust and the wonderful folks that also volunteered as part of Caesar's HERO program for making this possible. #LifeAtCaesars #buddybison #nationalparktrust
I don’t miss living in DC very often, but Cherry Blossom season always gets me waxing nostalgic. ⠀ The Yoshino produces single white blossoms that create an effect of white clouds around the Tidal Basin and north onto the grounds of the Washington Monument. Intermingled with the Yoshino are a small number of Akebono cherry trees, which bloom at the same time as the Yoshino and produce single, pale-pink blossoms.

Did you know that May 19th is Kids to Parks Day? I like to plan ahead so I’m trying to determine which of our amazing local parks I should host an event at. What’s your favorite local, state, or national park? • • • #kidstoparks #nationalparktrust #BuddyBison #hikeitbaby #nevertooyoungtohike #togetherwehike #raiseawildchild #unpluggedchildhood #momswithcameras #fourmonthsold @nationalparktrust
Which way?
“I have bad news for you, for all of our fellow citizens, and people who love peace all over the world, and that is that Martin Luther King was shot and killed tonight.⠀ ⠀ Martin Luther King dedicated his life to love and to justice for his fellow human beings, and he died because of that effort.⠀ ⠀ In this difficult day, in this difficult time for the United States, it is perhaps well to ask what kind of a nation we are and what direction we want to move in. For those of you who are black--considering the evidence there evidently is that there were white people who were responsible--you can be filled with bitterness, with hatred, and a desire for revenge. We can move in that direction as a country, in great polarization--black people amongst black, white people amongst white, filled with hatred toward one another.⠀ ⠀ Or we can make an effort, as Martin Luther King did, to understand and to comprehend, and to replace that violence, that stain of bloodshed that has spread across our land, with an effort to understand with compassion and love.⠀ ⠀ For those of you who are black and are tempted to be filled with hatred and distrust at the injustice of such an act, against all white people, I can only say that I feel in my own heart the same kind of feeling. I had a member of my family killed, but he was killed by a white man. But we have to make an effort in the United States, we have to make an effort to understand, to go beyond these rather difficult times.” - Sen Robert Kennedy⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #travel #explore #learn #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark#FYPyes#parks101#npcapics#goparks #NationalParkLife#nationalpark#nationalparks#americasbestidea#ShareTheExperience#npcollective#nationalparkfoundation#TheModerndayExplorer#findyouradventure#npca#nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal#protectingparks#optoutside#OurWild#naturephotoUSA

#WheresBuddyBisonBeen #BuddyBison climbed down to #LewisFalls in #ShenandoahNationalPark on a cold, rainy April day. There was even snow and ice along the edges of the falls! #AdventuresWithBuddy #NationalParkTrust #NationalParkService #NPS #WhatRain #OptOutside #NoChildLeftInside 🌲🌱☔❄️

Did the native Americans doodle? That’s one theory to this rock’s art — or writing or whatever it is. Maybe it was their way of saying “Wind in Her Hair was Here”. Not sure but I love seeing traces of ancient people....this is heading deep into Canyonlands National Park, and off the grid.
