Firefall 🔥🔥🔥 Yet another fantastical phenomenon on this planet we call home. . Looking back on that freezing cold & amazing week with wonderful friends @77slade @jennkichinko @mazmanphotography @taylorgrayphoto @jude_allen at @yosemitenps . . . #yosemite #nps101 #firefall #🔥#thesearethegoodolddays
Although I am currently in the Grand Canyon, I won’t be making it back to Havasupai Falls. The price has gone up and the permitting process is extremely difficult. I am grateful for the time I spent there in 2016. Amazing memories I won’t soon forget.
The highest point in the continental US (Mt. Whitney) is just 100 miles away from the lowest point in the continental US (Death Valley). It’s amazing how the landscape changes so quickly and so dramatically here in California. West coast best coast!! 💯
#JewelCave is teaming up with the Weston County Public Library for another #afterschool program. Participants will sketch #caveformations while learning how these #cavefeatures form deep underground. #JECA #nationalparkservice #midwestnps #FindYourPark #nps101 #parks101 #wyoming #blackhills #cave #cavescience #artinthepark
Early run that I'm quickly and finally posting at 8:25 p.m. before the next client arrives. Sheesh! Took the new Garmin out for its maiden run. 4.47 miles / 62.65 MTD. . #charitymiles #dmv #nationalparkfoundation #everymilematters #sundayrunday #publixgeorgiamarathon #CUCB2018 #leathermansloop #PopularBKHalf #running #wilrunsdc #runyourworld #runneroftheweek #instarunners #runnerslife #optoutside #rundc #runnersofinstagram #findyourpark #NPS101 #savepublicland #running4jason
The French Trench area at @colonialnhp in Yorktown, #Virginia . The earthwork was manned by the "Regiment Touraine" and formed the western portion of the French and American siege line surrounding Yorktown. #va #SpreadTheHistory #vahistory #FindYourPark #nps #nps101 #OptOutside #exploreva #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #goparks #americanhistory #nationalparkgeek #travelblog #travelblogger #explore #blog #blogger #yorktownva #colonialparkway #colonialnhp #frenchtrench #nationalhistoricpark #earthwork #cannon
Death Valley feature #3 - Badwater Basin marks the lowest elevation in North America at 282 feet below sea level. The salt flats that exist in the basin stretch nearly 200 square miles and are among the largest protected salt flats in the world! Salt flats form in arid, enclosed basins where evaporation exceeds the amount of water drainage in the system, creating these ever-changing crystalline formations on the basin floor. . . .

Great holiday weekend to come and #findyourpark . Be advised of windy conditions while hiking. @nationalparkservice @naturenps @usinterior #presidentsday #encuentratuparque #nps101 📷B. Schwieger
Sometimes we find the most peace when we least expect it. Such was my experience in the Smoky Mountains. I never thought I would visit, and now a piece of my heart is there forever!
Waking up before sunrise during the work week is always a chore. But when there's a new hike on the horizon, waking up isn't so bad.
I just put up a recap of our year end adventure of 2017 on my blog. Check it out! Link is in the bio 🙌🏼👍🏼 Thanks! And yes, I know I’m so behind!

We’ve temporarily finished up with the NPS sites of South Carolina! We have to come back once Restoration Era opens up. We learned a lot about Charles Pinckney and his role in forming our nation’s government while visiting this site and highly recommend it if you’re Charleston, SC! #notsojuniorrangers #explorelearnprotect #charlespickneynationalhistoricsite #findyourpark #juniorranger #jrranger #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps101 #americasbestidea #nationalpark #history #education
One year ago I was here at @yosemitenps and the caller floor was covered in snow, waterfalls were running and the mountains were snow capped. ⠀ ⠀ Today there isn’t snow to be found... the ski area that normally opens in mid December is bare, and these conditions are found across the Sierras. ⠀ ⠀ While I am stoked to be in this magnificent place, hiking in 60+ degree weather in February is a stark reminder that climate change is here. We all need to do our part, and fast. Go check out @protectourwinters to learn more about how you can get involved. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #yourshotphotographer #rei1440project #getoutstayout #optoutside #discovervacations #discoveramerica #Outdoorsusa #neverstopexploring #wheretofindme #nps101 #ourplanetdaily #natgeotravel #natgeo #travelstoke #roamtheplanet #discoverearth #exploringtheglobe #earthpix #nakedplanet #passionpassport#myoutdoorstory#thegreatoutdoors
Death Valley feature #2 - Artist Drive is a scenic 9 mile loop throughout volcanic and sedimentary hills that come alive with color in the afternoon sun. This section of the park, however, is closed for construction until April, so plan accordingly! . . Photo 📸 feature by @sangeetadeyphotography . .

In many of the pools in Carlsbad Cavern, you can see baby stalactites hanging below the flat calcite rim, called shelfstone. These were once gel-like strings of bacterial colonies living underwater. Dangling in calcium-rich water, the strings became self-fossilized through a chemical process not yet fully understood. These biothems (biological speleothems--cave formations) were first discovered in Lechuguilla Cave and named "pool fingers."

Hidden Valley nature trail 💚 the desert keeps calling me back. I'm attracted to it like a magnet.
Wake the hell up! We still have to hike back down this thing!

Death Valley feature #1 - The sailing stones of the Racetrack playa have baffled naturalists for years. What combination of forces could possibly move rocks weighing up to 700 pounds across this dry lakebed in the middle of the desert? In 2013 the phenomenon was witness first hand - the answer? Floating ice! To see these fascinating rocks you will need a whole day and a 4x4 vehicle capable of traversing rough dirt roads. . . Photo 📸 feature by @missjessbess . .

Flashback to fall in at Ryan Ranch
Do you know what health benefits nature has to offer? There are so many. Getting outside is what makes me happy.
Thanks to the ☀️ for providing 🕯
Do you know which part of JT this is in?
What's better than work!? HIKING! Today's hike had a little bit of everything; sun, blue skies, wind, clouds, wind, mist, wind, warmth, wind, views, wind, lack of views, wind, and fun! ...and wind! . . . . . . . . . . . . #getabovetreeline #mountjefferson #sunnyskies #alsocloudyskies #sockedin #windyaf #hiketheridge #winterinthewhites #hikethewhites #whitemountains #hikenh #NPS101 #findyourpark #getoutside #beanoutsider #roamtheplanet #whitewalkerwalks

Earlier today I volunteered at @johnmuirnps and had a chance to look around the first floor of the house for a little bit. #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #NPS101 #Parks101
It's official! I'm out of shape With the extreme cold we've had this Winter, I couldn't get out to run as much as I normally would. Poor blood circulation in my fingers prevent me from doing so. One day last week, they were at frostbite stage and I couldn't turn the key to get into the house. Not a pretty scene. However, today was different with the temps hitting 66°F. I became dehydrated at mile eleven and had to go to the 7-Eleven for refreshment. Training plan is being revised. Trail rolling hills were on the menu again. 13.19 miles / 58.18 MTD. . #hilltraining #endurancetraining #charitymiles #dmv #nationalparkfoundation #everymilematters #publixgeorgiamarathon #CUCB2018 #leathermansloop #PopularBKHalf #running #wilrunsdc #runyourworld #runneroftheweek #instarunners #runnerslife #optoutside #rundc #runnersofinstagram #findyourpark #NPS101 #savepublicland #running4jason

UP or Down? Welcher Antelope Canyon gefällt euch besser? Ich kann es nicht wirklich festmachen, beide sind wirklich schön. Gefühlt hatten wir im 'Lower' vor einigen Jahren mehr Zeit und wurden nicht ganz so durchgehetzt. Dafür war im 'Upper' mehr Entertainment.

Our home on wheels since this summer. Living in a RV has taken us to some incredible places and gives us a home during Jo's hospital stays. We have stayed everywhere from National Parks to boondocking to parking lots. Our only regret is not doing this sooner. #gorving
