Named for its resemblance to willows, desert willow is actually related to catalpa trees, Yellowbells (Tecoma stans), and Trumpet vine (Campsis radicans). Its exotic-looking blooms, rapid growth, drought tolerance, and ease of maintenance have made it a sought-after plant within its range, which in nature is from south-central Texas south to Nuevo Leon and Zacatecas in Mexico and west all the way to southern California and Baja California. 📷E.

Personal post : : Recently we spent a few days in the deep dark woods of Shenandoah NP chasing bears. We didn’t see a SINGLE BEAR! But we did see a couple of huge waterfalls, crossed a few rivers, and cursed the hike up and out a little. My glutes 😫. Tried out my new customized ULA Circuit bag which was 👍🏻. Applied today for permit deadlines for backcountry adventures out west - wish us luck! #keepontruckin

Convergence: The rocks and water converge in Roaring Fork Stream in Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Once again, I'm loving my new Formatt Hitech filters! #gsmnp #nationalparks #smokymountains #greatsmokymountainnationalpark #visitmysmokies #smokies #tennessee #igcincy_away #igerscincinnati #cincishooters #nps101 #FindYourPark #GreatSmokyMountains #gatlinburg #sonyalpha #sonya7III #sonya7rIII #igersusa #ilovenationalparks #formatthitech
We collectivly demonstrated these creative signs that were made by us at Joshua Tree National Park. *---*---*---*---*---*---*---*--- It was fun exploring with Maryna and Adan. We were in search of a heart shaped rock. We didn't find it, and that's okay. We were right where we were supposed to be. 💕
This trail was really beautiful! You should see for yourself sometime. Its the Split Rock trail in JTNP.
Truly breathtaking

Please Hang Around: I just returned from a very restful and productive trip to Great Smoky National Park. It's going to take me a while to go through everything, so here's a photo of a little friend I found while roaming Roaring Fork. Please hang around and check back for more soon! #gsmnp #nationalparks #smokymountains #greatsmokymountainnationalpark #visitmysmokies #smokies #tennessee #igcincy_away #igerscincinnati #cincishooters #nps101 #FindYourPark #GreatSmokyMountains #gatlinburg #sonyalpha #sonya7III #sonya7rIII #macrolife #sonyalphaclub #igersusa #macro_ig #macro_brilliance #macro_holic
The only souls in sight in the darkest of skies.
My friend Maryna and her son Adan met with us on Saturday to explore Joshua tree for a while. She loves the outdoors too! We met at Pinnacles National Park through our friend Linda. We had a great time together!

I think my face on this photo says it all ~ I’m having no fun at all exploring @visitgoldcountry 😆 Yesterday, I went zip lining and also went 165 feet underground to check out the Moaning Cavern, which was discovered by gold miners in 1851 ⛏ There’s so much history in this part of California, it’s been such a thrill to learn about it all 👍🏻 #visitgoldcountry #visitcalifornia #gopro
Kingsley Plantation House at @timucuannps on Fort George Island in #Florida . It is named for an early owner, Zephaniah Kingsley, who spent 25 years there. The house was constructed circa 1797/1798 by John McQueen, an American Revolution veteran and the first owner of the site. #fl #flhistory #kingsleyplantation #fortgeorgeisland #timucuanpreserve #timucuanparks #SpreadTheHistory #historygirl #nps #nps101 #goparks #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #goparks #americanhistory #nationalparkgeek #travelblog #travelblogger #explore #blog #blogger #exploreflorida #architecture #archi_ologie #plantationhouse #FindYourPark #optoutside

We were Milky Way Chasing last night in Joshua Tree. We had to wait until 12:30 a.m. to capture it after witnessing the moonset. It was a very special thing to gaze upon. The crescent moon looked like a shark fin as it descended below the mountainous horizon.
We Explored Split rock Trail yesterday afternoon in Joshua Tree National Park. This place has endless miles of trails to hike. Like I always say, it'll take more than a lifetime to see it all.

I heard there was a park sunset war going on. I immediately went to grab my tablet to capture the sunset at Quail Springs in Joshua Tree National Park.
Happy Sunday ✌🏼| 📍Pinnacles National Park, CA (2017)
Managed to miss the rain, and have an excellent, partly sunny, partly buggy, partly snowy, fun day hiking Mount Moriah yesterday! . . . . . . . . . . #mtmoriah #appalachiantrail #hiketheAT #springisuponus #hikethewhites #whitemountains #hikenh #NPS101 #findyourpark #getoutside #beanoutsider #roamtheplanet #whitewalkerwalks
Thanks to all those who joined us to celebrate @nationalparktrust #kidstoparks day on Saturday for our hikes in Salt Flat, Texas/Carlsbad, New Mexico and learned about stewardship, outdoor recreation, and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). @nationalparktrust @usinterior @nationalparkservice @naturenps #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #nps101

When scale doesn’t translate
A great day at @georgewashingtonbirthplacenm with the family today. It poured rain all day and we wouldn’t have it any other way! We basically had the place to ourselves talking to the great @nationalparkservice staff, getting a tour of the house, meeting the animals, and making soap! The National Park Service never disappoints and historic sites like these consistently creates amazing family memories for us! This is our 91st National Park unit we’ve visited as a family! #findyourpark #nps101 #nationalparkservice #nationalparks

Although Ansel Adams did not photograph scenery at #JewelCave , this picture might complement his passion.

Ahhhh-mazing. A throwback to sunrise in Bryce Canyon National Park. We still have six more NPs to knock off the bucket list this year.
Natural bridges and arches are different. Fascinating still the same.
Bryce Canyon at sunrise. Gorgeous. #throwbackthursday
I’m never amazed at how diverse the beauty of our country is. Look at that pink!
We are getting excited to hit the road and check a couple more NPs off our bucket this summer. A throw back Thursday to our sunrise in Bryce.
Sunrise in Bryce Canyon was a memory for sure. Even if I was on crutches. Well worth the early start!
Checkers, anyone? Just about two years ago, we were in Zion NP. Entering the park the first time, we noticed the asphalt reddish color somewhat blending with the natural landscape colors, and then we saw Checkerboard Mesa. Wow! And the fun visit to all of Utah national parks had begun. . . . . . #brazilianeyes #ExploreMore #FindYourPark #GetOutside #GoParks #greatoutdoors #IHeartParks #nationalpark #NationalParkFoundation #NationalParks #NationalParkService #NeverStopExploring #npca #npcapics #NPF #NPS101 #OptOutside #ourparks #ourpubliclands #Parks101 #parkstagram #PledgeToProtect #protectingparks #RockthePark #ThoseParkGuys #Travel #usinterior #Wanderlust #zion #zionnationalpark

If you keep your eyes open, you can spot Yellow-headed collared lizards sunbathing at Mesa Verde.  They are one of the few lizards that can run on their hind legs.  These lizards are very quick, with a stride up to three times their body length.  The Yellow-headed collared lizard can grow up to 10 inches, and live between 5-8 years.  However, unlike other lizards, if they lose their tail, it does not grow back. . . . . . #mesaverde  #co #mesaverdenationalpark #mvnp #nationaldestinations #nationalparkgeek #optoutside #findyourpark #sharetheexperience #adventure #outdoors  #nps101 #landscapephotography #landscapelover #outside_project #roamearth #BDAmerica #MTNfolk #takemoreadventures #rei1440project #jnaphotos
