#summer visitors often travel across #southdakota to see #JewelCave . If this is you, please make sure to experience the beautiful #cultures of our great state, too. The #Dignity statue in Chamberlain is worth some #exploration along the Missouri River. #JECA #nationalparkservice #midwestnps #FindYourPark #nps101 #parks101 #chamberlainsd #chamberlainrestarea #exploreanddiscover #nativeamerican

A kiva is a room used by Puebloans for religious rituals and political meetings, many of them associated with the kachina belief system. Subterranean rooms are found among ruins in the American Southwest, indicating uses by the ancient peoples of the region including the ancestral Puebloans, the Mogollon, and the Hohokam. Those used by the ancient Pueblos of the Pueblo I Period and following, designated by the Pecos Classification system developed by archaeologists, were usually round and evolved from simpler pithouses. For the Ancestral Puebloans, these rooms are believed to have had a variety of functions, including domestic residence along with social and ceremonial purposes.

Petroglyph National Monument protects one of the largest petroglyph sites in North America, featuring designs and symbols carved onto volcanic rocks by Native Americans and Spanish settlers 400 to 700 years ago. These images are a valuable record of cultural expression and hold profound spiritual significance for contemporary Native Americans and for the descendants of the early Spanish settlers.

Craters of the Moon is a vast landscape of lava rock from 2000 year-old volcanic eruptions, with scattered islands of cinder cones and sagebrush. The #NPS website calls it a "weird and scenic landscape.” Nailed it. #nationalmonument #roguetripidaho
Pecos National Historical Park has layers of history from the native peoples who settled here thousands of years ago, parts of the Santa Fe National Historic Trail, and up to the westernmost Civil War battle in 1863. The largest structures on the property are the old Spanish churches from the 1600 and 1700’s. ⠀ ⠀ 📍:⠀Pecos National Historical Park, NM 📅 :⠀June 2018 #nationalparkgeek #pecosnhp #wnpa1938 #findyourtrail

I found an oasis, much needed coverage away from the heat.
