. A flower was offered to me, Such a flower as May never bore; But I said, ‘I’ve a pretty rose tree,’ And I passed the sweet flower o’er. Then I went to my pretty rose tree, To tend her by day and by night; But my rose turned away with jealousy, And her thorns were my only delight. -William Blake . . #williamblake #poetry #myprettyrosetree #prettytree #floweringtree #whatisthis #giantsequoia #sequoiasempervirens #redwoods #kingscanyonnationalpark #sequoianationalpark #nps101 #findyourpark #getoutside #optoutside #hiking #ultralightbackpacking #fastpacking #seenonmyrun #thisismyview #outdoorphotography #bigtrees
"The promise of living with hope and thanksgiving is born of our loving our friends and our labor. The promise of growing with faith and with knowing is born of our sharing our love with our neighbor. For many a year we've known these fields and known all the work that makes them yield. Are you ready to lend a hand? We’ll bring in the harvest, the blessings of harvest. We plant each row with seeds of grain, and Providence sends us the sun and the rain. By lending a hand, by lending an arm, bring out from the farm, bring out the blessings of harvest." The Promise of Living, by Erick Johns, from Aaron Copland's opera The Tender Land. #gsmnp #nationalparks #smokymountains #greatsmokymountainnationalpark #visitmysmokies #smokies #tennessee #igcincy_away #nps101 #FindYourPark #GreatSmokyMountains #gatlinburg #sonyalpha #sonya7III #sonya7rIII #igersusa #ilovenationalparks ##instagramtennessee #smokies #fall #autumn
. Observing Bears: We hope you will have a chance to observe bears in the wild during your visit. All bears in these parks are American black bears (Ursus americanus). This name can be misleading, as they may be black, brown, cinnamon, or even blonde in color.

It's been Premiere Week at work showing our new film of the Missouri National Recreational River at venue sites within the 98 mile park corridor. River of Change features the National Park in all seasons with aerial and scenic views of the river, up-close wildlife photography, and interviews of people that call the river their home. We'll soon have video samples available on our website for viewing at nps.gov/mnrr.
Off the beaten path along the Guadalupe River.
2 months later and I still dream about Colorado. As much fun as hiking through hoodoos or desserts are, trail breaking in fresh snow leads to some of the best adventures (and it's pretty hard to get lost)
Episode 12 is up and will make you smile and probably also make you hungry!! Link in bio. Meanwhile, get a load of this Texas sunrise! ☀️😍
Cold nose, cold tose, warm and happy heart! #curratedfun with @hydroflask
There isn't much water in the desert of Big Bend, but search and you will find it... I'm currently editing our next video episode which will take us through Texas and even dip into Mexico!
Happy 40th Birthday, Badlands National Park! This underrated park is one of two national parks in South Dakota, and it’s well worth your visit! Among the surround rolling grasslands sprout these pinnacles millions and millions of years in the making. Hiking through these colored ridges feels like visiting another world - and did we mention all of the bison? The park is home to a herd of over 450. Have you visited the Badlands yet? Or are you planning your next trip now? #seekmorewilderness
We are saddened to learn that Western Town at Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills, #California , part of @santamonicamountainsnps , was destroyed yesterday by the #Woolseyfire . We had been to the site twice when visiting relatives in California. In 1927, Paramount Pictures purchased 2,700 acres of the old Rancho Las Virgenes for use as a "movie ranch." In 1953, a portion of the property was purchased by William Hertz who built Western Town using Paramount's old prop storage sheds. Television companies began producing westerns at the ranch such as "The Cisco Kid" and Dick Powell's "Zane Grey Theatre." In the 1990s, Western Town was used as the set for "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman." More recently it was the location for HBO's "WestWorld." Western Town and the surrounding landscape have been used for countless other TV shows and movies. #ca #cahistory #SpreadTheHistory #historygirl #paramountranch #sanamonicamountains #nps #nps101 #FindYourPark #travelblogger #travelblog #blog #blogger #ushistory #americanhistory #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #park #architecture #archi_ologie #oldhouselove #goparks #explore #westworld #agourahills #agourahillsca #ranch

A volcano inside of another volcano 🤯
From last weekend’s Yosemite trip. Car lights bring the fall colors to life while the headlamps from climbers moving up el cap remind you of the scale of these towering shadows surrounding you.
Verbier, I’m back!
#FB to sleeping in my far and watching the sun rise through Zion national park. You never really got a sense of the height of the canyon walls until the light Dawn's on the opposing side. Side note: not only is Zion the best national park, but it also shares its name with the best pants on Earth made by @prana
”Follow the yellow brick road.”
In the Woods: On the Roaring Fork Loop in Great Smoky Mountain National Park near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, there is the Alfred Regan House, just across the street from the small grist mill. This is just one of the beautiful stops to see in the park during the fall, and on this rainy and overcast day last year the colors were just beginning to pop. #gsmnp #nationalparks #smokymountains #greatsmokymountainnationalpark #visitmysmokies #smokies #tennessee #igcincy_away #nps101 #FindYourPark #GreatSmokyMountains #gatlinburg #sonyalpha #sonya7III #sonya7rIII #igersusa #ilovenationalparks ##instagramtennessee #smokies #fall #autumn
Last weekend was an unforgettable weekend in Yosemite filled with some hiking (actually, quite a bit of it), some climbing, some good food (also, quite a bit of it) and some wonderful people.
An older one, better presented. As so much of the feel gets lost.
New blog post: Our Plan to Visit ALL the US National Park Units - It's been nearly 4 months since we quit our jobs in San Francisco to set out on a journey to visit all the National Park Units in the US, and so far we haven't done any.

The American bison is the largest land animal in North America with adults weighing in somewhere between 900-2200lbs.... but don’t take their size for granted, they can run at speeds up to 40 miles per hour and jump over cattle fences with ease. 📷 by @dwightvaselphoto during our Fall Photography Workshop ___________ #bisonnotbuffalo #bison #wildlife #wildlifesafari #grandtetonnationalpark #nps101 #mygtnp #yellowstonenationalpark #findyourpark #wyominglife #wyoming #thatswy #jacksonhole #jhdreaming #aktravel #ecotourism #wildlife_seekers #wildlifephotography #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifesafari #experiencenature #iamatraveler #jacksonholesafaris #TLPicks #LiveTravelChannel #onlyinJH #EscapeExplore #travelforwildlife

That's my little #masterhiker ! Hiking on the caldera of a Volcano within a Volcano, In Crater Lake National Park, Oregon's only national park. I can hardly wait to climb some rocks in Joshua Tree Next Month. who's with me? 👋😍
She was bold for diving in the cold. 💙
The drippy season is baaaaaack
We couldn’t agree more that rangers add so much to the National Park experience - both at Mesa Verde and all parks across the country! The number of signatures towards our Mesa Verde License Plate pétition is growing! Calling all CO residents to keep spreading the word and help us get to 3,500 signatures by the end of November! (Link is in the bio) #Repost @rangerbear_adventures ・・・ One of my favorite parts of visiting national parks is meeting the rangers! This is my new friend, Ranger David Nighteagle from Mesa Verde National Park.

Here’s a great deal for families. The “Every Kid In a Park” program is offering 4th graders (and their families!) a free National Parks pass, valid through August 31, 2019! Annual passes normally cost $80, so that’s a decent savings! The pass is for 4th grade students (or homeschool equivalent) and with it any children under 16 years old, as well as up to 3 adults, will get free entry into any national park in the country! Plus, you can use it as many times as you’d like! Check here (via the link in our bio!) to signup for your free pass. After registering you’ll need to print your pass and bring it with you for entry, as electronic copies aren’t accepted.

I keep looking back at this photo and it has become one of my favorites from this summer. Who's tryina go hit up these mountains with me soon huh?
Be a beautiful tree.
Weekend mode.
Does it get much better than experiencing a moment like this in our National Parks? 📸: @drivehikerepeat #seemorewilderness _____ Sometimes it can take a lot of energy to find yourself in moments like these. Blocking off a weekend (or a few weeks) for your trip. Doing so much research about what you want to do while you’re at the park. Packing. Checking the weather forecasts. But moments like this - that’s when you know it hasn’t been for nothing. When you would do all the planning, packing and hiking one hundred more times to experience a view like this again — something you know at your core that you’ll never forget. And that’s what makes it all worth it. ______
Finding new perspectives in highly over photographed landscapes helps appreciate the vastness and uniqueness of every national park 🌅
. I’ve never looked up to athletes as hero’s based on their athletic performance alone, but free soloing El Cap is something that will get you close. @alexhonnold certainly has other great stuff like the Honnold Foundation going on. In any case, I can’t wait to catch Free Solo with the boy today in Berkeley, CA. . . #freesolo #alexhonnold #nationalgeographic #honnoldfoundation #matinee #berkeleyca #elcap #dawnwall #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #nps #nps101 #getoutside #optoutside #findyourpark #sunrise #climbing #hiking #camping #solarenergy #environment #photooftheday #awe #fall #california #calilife #easydoesit
It could be the 18th century. But it’s not.
