Some images last for different reasons. With this particular shot of this awesome juniper tree, i had to get down real low & left my light meter in the ground to get the shot. I then packed up & went back to town. Only when I unpacked did I realise i left the light meter in the park. Tip always listen to your wife, as it was her that said drive back & search for it! It wasn't in the same spot but a good samaritan had left it to lost & found! Thanks to them I still have my trusty 18 year old Minolta Autometer IV!!
The most beautiful places I’ve ever worked. Thinking back to warm summer days reading outside in this courtyard, build by the CCC and the WPA.
There are seasons that bring you from mountaintop to valley low; periods of time meant to teach perseverance. I believe that there are seasons where God wants us to wait patiently and seasons where in faith, we are the ones expected to break the door down. 2017, you were fun…here’s to breaking down doors in 2018. . . . . . #vsco #vscocam #igerssandiego #california #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #toulumnemeadows #instalife #nature #camping #camp #campvibes #npscentennial #nps #nationalparkservice #nationalpark #camp4 #elcapitan #yosemitevillage

Angels Landing, you have a special place in my heart; you’re the only summit where I’ve had to defend my lunch from chipmunks. . . . . . . #vsco #vscocam #exposure #instalife #nature #camping #camp #campvibes #npscentennial #nps #nationalparkservice #nationalpark #winter #snow #fire #campfire #mountains #california #wanderlust #utah #angelslanding #zionnationalpark
The #NPS #arrowhead and #bison at last year's #seasonsgreetings exhibit at the #usbotanicgarden for #flashbackfriday . Last year's exhibit celebrated the #npscentennial . #thomasthetankengine makes a #cameo in the second picture because this is actually a #train display although I think most people come to see the wonderful #creations , like this buffalo, that surround the tracks and are made from all natural materials. #washingtondc #legoranger ##nationalparkservice #christmas #nationalmall #leaves #buddythebison
It's hard to believe 2017 is almost over. I haven't been able to do any photography then last couple months because of a vertigo nightmare, followed by a horrible shoulder injury. Hoping for good health in 2018 and more magical photos! ❤ . . . . #yosemite #yosemitenationalpark #nps #npscentennial #mirrorlake #California #travelcalifornia #traveltheworld #wanderlust #hiking #getoutside #explore

The way photography should be viewed...printed big! Highway 163 leading to Monument Valley shot in 2011 (so well before the new road surface there) printed this week, 40 inches long on metallic. Original Velvia50 slide is underneath!
Waking up on a chilly morning in @rockymountainnationalpark and crawling out of my tent to the sounds of this giant eating his breakfast, was incredible. Back country camping with two bull moose.

The St. Paul cathedral is amazing. It is a true work of art. I took many more photos but they don’t do it justice. #nerdalert and I got another stamp in my #npspassport and ended the day with a trip to the Mall of America. #npscentennial #stpaulcathedral #mallofamerica #solosightseeingselfieinthesnow

Now more than ever, appreciate America's parks! Tree & glacier loss due to Global Warming. #americathebeautiful #drought #climatechange #environmentallaw #conference #alwayslearning #npscentennial
History can be a funny thing. Thanks to the philanthropy of David Rubinstein, the home of Robert E Lee will be restored and the house, outer buildings and gardens will also undergo some reinterpretation. Arlington House is the nation’s memorial to Robert E. Lee. It honours him for specific reasons, including his role in promoting peace and reunion after the Civil War. In a larger sense it exists as a place of study and contemplation of the meaning of some of the most difficult aspects of American History - military service, sacrifice, citizenship, duty, loyalty, slavery and freedom. When the projects is completed, visitors will see Arlington House as it was in 1860, with every room restored to its historical appearance. An important aspect of this project will be to restore the slave quarters to better represent and tell the stories of the enslaved. Visitors will learn from park rangers and volunteers, new mobile and digital technology, audio tours and changing exhibitions. Visitors will move between the house and the new museum and bookstore along accessible paths that stretch through the restored grounds, including heirloom gardens and new trails. People who cannot visit in person will enjoy virtual tours, complete with detailed displays of the rooms and museum objects. #museum #museums #history #heritage
A fantastic shot by Natalie A. Follow @natalievi and her excellent work! #officialparkpatches

Driven by dozens of times, but finally went up the road up to Whitney Portal to plan 2018. Tuttle Creek is the place to stay outside of Lone Pine. #BLM #npscentennial #nps100 #mtwhitney #hikerlife

John D. Rockefeller built these bridges for Acadia National Park over 100 years ago. They look like they could last another 100 #npscentennial #carriageroad #acadia #parkmanmountain
Haleakala was a kind of hallelujah, standing with this angel and existing above the clouds // 35mm #film #filmisnotdead

Last year we set out with our National Park Service 4th-grade pass (it's free!) to explore America's National Parks. Our very first visit was Haleakala NP on Maui and what a park! Make plans to catch the sunrise (you must book ahead) because it's nothing like you've ever experienced - we promise! Be sure to read up on this park and the #everykidinapark program over on our blog. See you out there! 🌋
Been working on so many badges lately I decided to look at my personal collection of patches from my NPS Centennial road trip last summer. A well made park patch is hard to find sometimes it seems like they just slap a tree on them and call it a day, but if you're willing to go to every gift shop imaginable, you can find some real gems. The power of a stitched patch that uses color well and manages to capture the flavor of a place is palpable. The way some people must think of stamps. My favorites are my three Big Bend guys (middle right and the two smaller round ones on the outsides). The smaller ones were prizes for doing certain nature walks as part of the Centennial, I was tempted to change my trip to stay another day to earn them all.
