Loved my #shadow on the #geyserbasin
Grab a handful of skittles( make sure to choose the purple, orange and the yellow ones). Add to it a cup full of jolly ranchers and a glass of ice cold water. Blend it all in a mixer. And look at the colors splashing inside the mixer.You might still not get these candy tones that nature produced so effortlessly 😊#crescentlake @lake_crescent @national_park_photography #olympicnationalpark #livewashington #olympicpeninsula #discoverglobe #discoverearth #welivetoexplore #getoutdoors #the59parks #nationalparkgeek #goparks #earthday #washington #usa
Kicking off National Park Week with a scene from GCNP. I spent 20 days hiking and backpacking in Glacier and Waterton last summer, covering just over 250 miles of trails, before moving on to Yellowstone and the Tetons. This hike proved to be one of my favorite day hikes in the park and culminated with me seeing my first grizzly bear close up, a mom and cub of course...😬(7.9.17).. • • #montana #hikemontana #exploremontana #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #getoutdoors #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #beautifuldestinations #the59parks #choosemountains #rockymountains #themountainsarecalling #welivetoexplore #exploremore #hikingadventures #hikinglife #adventureculture #optoutside #adventureisoutthere #wilderness #wildernessculture #greettheoutdoors #idratherbeoutside #getoutstayout #todsl #montanamoment #glaciernationalpark #findyourpark #nationalparkweek
The next time you are about to “Google” how to do something, don’t. Instead, pick up the phone and call one of your parents and ask them if they know. They’ll love getting the call and also they may have trial-and-error experience. #NJspotsTravels Mount Rainier NP | September 2016 . . . . . . . . #dreamingtones #ccunderfollowed #unknownlenses #nationalparkservice #nationalparks #nationalpark #the59parks #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkcentennial #nps #findyourpark #usinterior #goparks #americasbestidea
One of the goals we set for 2018 was to start backpacking. We headed to Olympic National Park this weekend, which happened to be Earth Day Weekend AND the beginning of National Park Week (how fitting!), for our first ever trip! We hiked 19 miles along rivers and through the beautiful Hoh Rainforest, saw over 10 elks, admired the crazy mossy trees, cooked dehydrated food for the first time, filtered our own water, and successfully carried ~30lbs each. 🌲⛺️ Carrying supplies for miles through a forest and sleeping deep in nature was such a rewarding and peaceful experience. We learned a lot this weekend and cannot wait for more backpacking adventures this year! 🙌🏼
@rockynps in winter is not only doable, it's awesome! You wont be able to drive the famed Trail Ridge Road around to the summit, but you'll nearly have the park to yourself, and a quiet, snowy hike around the evergreens is a nice way to spend an afternoon. . . I love this photo because we were all so caught up in the beauty, everyone wanted to capture the memory! There seemed to be a magical vista around every corner in this park. Check over on the blog for more about this trip and America's National Parks - link in our bio! . . If you have have a nearby park, check their calendar for #NationalParkWeek activities this week. Many parks have special programming, especially for kids! . . @everykidinapark #nps #NationalParks #findyourpark #nationalparkservice #goparks #americasbestidea #the59parks #usinterior #FindYourPark #GoParks #KidstoParks #nationalparkgeek #everykidinapark #OptOutside #OurWild #WeAreTheWild #NeverStopExploring #OwnTheWeekend #FindYourAWAY #GoRVing #wildtribute #OutdoorFamilies #exploringfamilies #gofurther #loveyourtimetogether #WanderWisely #familytravel #takeyourkidseverywhere #RMNP

Cross Country Road Trip 6, Day 1: Ironically, the lowest point of our spring break trip was not at Badwater Basin (282 ft below sea level), but hours earlier during our 4 hour flight. They may look harmless, but flying with these two toddlers was BRUTAL. If we had the time, we would have gladly road tripped the 2000 miles to California to avoid that flight. Anyone else prefer a road trip over flying? . . . . . . #roadtrip7 #familyroadtrip #roadtrip #roadtripping #exploremore #gooutside #optoutside #outdoorlife #outdoorlovers #goexplore #outdooradventures #gooutsideandplay #adventureawaits #adventuretime #findyourpark #goparks #toddlersinnationalparks #nationalparkgeek #the59parks #nationalpark #deathvalley #deathvalleynationalpark #california #californiaadventures #explorecalifornia #visitcalifornia #travelcalifornia #californiacaptures

Mmmmm yummy, colorful slot canyon goodness in Zion.
🌏🌍🌎 Happy Earth Day and National Parks Week!!! Here’s a pic I shot last spring of the Tree of Life in Olympic National Park as a friendly reminder of how wonderful this world is and that we should all play our part in conserving it’s beauty!! 4.22.18 #earthday #trashfreeearth #treeoflife #olympicnationalpark #findyourpark
Last month while visiting Guadeloupe Mountains NP I pulled over to take a picture. When I looked down I noticed the bushes were filled with trash. I took a few minutes to pick up what was around me - enough to fill an entire trash bag (2nd pic). While this made me extremely sad/angry, I felt better knowing there was something I could do about it. So in honor of Earth Day and National Park Week, I decided to spend the weekend picking up trash from my local parks, beaches, and road sides... 21 bags of trash later (11 of those filled with just plastic) became an eye opener to just how much litter really pollutes our beautiful land. If I could make this much of a difference in two days, image what a whole community could do. #earthday #nps #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkweek

Happy Earth Day 🌍 This is from Earth Day 2015 and man was that line long to get inside...lol. I don't know if I could handle going on any of the free admission days ever again...lol. Miss you to death & come back to the states @dsotomayor
Every day is earth day.
My heart is full of gratitude and love for the calming connection of spirit and grace I experience when surrounded by nature’s beauty. Thank you Mother Earth. Happy Earth Day. 🌏🧡
How we feel about Earth Day 🙌🏼 To reduce our carbon footprint, we’ve installed solar panels at many of our facilities and offer online bill pay. Share you own tips to help create a greener future below.
HAPPY #EARTHDAY Most of the time I am left speechless when I witness the power and beauty of #nature . I mean look at all these layers of history and creation? We must always remember to take care of our planet and resources for one day they all might be gone. Where will our children play? Let’s take care of our parks like its #earthday everyday. And leave it better than you found it ☝🏽 . . P.S. I took this picture of the Grand Canyon on South Kaibab trail about 4 miles in my hike, All I can think about was “fuck am not even half way to the halfway “ but there’s no where else I rather be ♥️ #TheGrandCanyon #southkaibabtrail #skeletonpoint #southrim #grandcanyonnationalpark #arizona #visitarizona #findyourpark #leavenotrace #letskeepitwild #Earthday #nationalparkhunt3r #nationalparkgeek #nationalparklife #the59parks
Happy Earth Day! Today we celebrate our greatest gift - and the one we seem to take the most for granted. We are so fortunate to have such a wild, beautiful, and diverse planet and that's something worthy of cherishing 365 days a year. While climate change, deforestation, and other environmental issues (most of which are human-caused) will continue to wreak havoc on all of Earth's species, it is still not too late to protect and save even the most endangered ecosystems and animals. Everything on this planet is connected - from the mosquitoes in Africa to the polar bears in the Arctic to the humans across the globe. That's why it's so important to conserve them all - our futures are intertwined. So I hope we all take some time to appreciate the incredible gift that is the natural world while recognizing our role in shaping its fate.

[70/417] Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial. Much less exciting than the actual FDR Historic Site, but that’s a post for another day. Any park with a good view of water is a decent experience anyways.

[69/417] Thomas Jefferson Memorial! Beautiful view overlooking the water from almost all sides of this area, just across the bridge from the main national mall areas.
[68/417] National Capital Parks. That’s right, for some reason the collective DC area is officially its own distinct unit of the NPS, separate from the other unique units that comprise it. That means EVERYTHING I post about DC is within this “park” too. Because of that, here’s some more big city park wildlife encounters :)

Happy national park week everyone! This was the final stop on my tour last weekend... After 3 hours and gaining about 1500 feet in elevation (all while fighting off a bad cold 🤧), I made it to the top of Angels Landing in Zion National Park. This is definitely the hardest but most thrilling hike I have ever done. You have to use a chain to help guide and pull you up the fin of the mountain on the final push to the top (where the trail is very narrow with 1000-foot drops on each side), but the payoff is a stunning 360 degree view of Zion. Would do it again in a heartbeat! 💙 NP No. 18. Get out and explore this week if you can 😊
Happy birthday, John Muir! The father of our national park system, a conservationist and environmentalist with a gift for words, and founding president of the Sierra Club. Thank you for preserving our incredible lands for generations to come 🏞 (Throwback to our hike through Muir Woods, one of my favorite places in the world, and aptly named after one of the biggest advocates for California wilderness!)
Happy 180th Birthday, John Muir! We can’t be thankful enough to the Father of National Parks for understanding the importance of protecting our most special, wild outdoor places for everyone to enjoy.

In honor of #InternationalDarkSkyWeek , I'm posting some of my favorite astrophotography pictures that I've taken over the past couple years. I posted this picture before.....I always take a picture of the park entrance sign when I get there, both because it's a nice memory, and it makes it easier to divide pictures by parks later on. Most of the park signs I've seen are fairly similar, with some slight differences for local character. Mount Rainier is a stand out for a unique entrance sign. So is the north entrance to Yellowstone. It just so happened that I didn't get to Bryce Canyon until just after sunset, and I wanted to get some astrophotography in. Two birds with one stone! You would think I planned this out, but the milky way just so happened to line up perfectly with the sign for me!⠀ Photo: 10/2017⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #BryceCanyonNationalPark #UtahRocks #Utah #RedRocks #Mighty5 ⠀⠀ #landscape #landscapephotography ⠀⠀ #the59parks #nationalpark #FindYourPark #rei1440project ⠀⠀ #lookout #mountain #mountains #inspiring #beautiful ⠀⠀ #sonyimages #sonya6000 #sonyalpha#nationalparkgeek#night #NightSky #nightphotography #stars #StarsAtNight #LongExposure #MilkyWay #astronomy #AstroPhotography
Really missing the rolling mountains coated with the beautiful, white goodness right now...
Approaching snowstorm in Zion. This is where we turned around and headed back. We were still about 15 minute from the car when we started getting pelted with sleet. I was delighted. By the time we made it back to the car, there were huge white flakes coming down covering everything. Zion is never more beautiful than in the snow. • • #zionnps #nps #nps100 #the59parks #nationalparkgeek #national_park_photography #national_park_pictures #zion #utahliveelevated #optoutside #utah #utahlive #utahunique #utahdotcom #hikeutah #iloveutah #mountains #mountainlove #landscapephotography #landscape #everytrailconnects #hiking #hikingtheglobe #beaUTAHful #climbing #nationalparks #utahrocks #utahphotographer #wanderlust #igersmountains
Ptarmigan Tunnel- We’re very thankful that back in the 1930s the CCC blasted this 240 ft. tunnel through the mountain so we didn’t have to try to scramble over it. 😆 In 1975 the NPS added steel doors to both ends to stop bears from hibernating in the tunnel. 🐻 The Ptarmigan Tunnel Trail takes you 5.5 miles up to the tunnel and some incredible views at 7200 ft, but there’s a short window of time to hike it. They open the tunnel mid-July and close it by October 1st. . . . #glaciernps #ptarmigantunnel #glaciernationalpark #nps #findyourpark #goparks #the59parks #nationalparks #fypyes #nationalparkgeek #usinterior #montana #hikingculture #trailchat #bigskycountry #visitmt #optoutside #exploremore #goatworthy #montanagram #exploremontana #hikinglife #lifeelevated #choosemountains #adventureawaits #adventureisoutthere

The lifespan of a cactus can span from 25 to 300 years, unless it’s under my care... as I do not have a green thumb. Wishing everyone an amazing weekend!!
SO STOKED to be heading back here this summer 🌟 happy Friday!!!

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood 🌷
Stayed local on this gorgeous day & headed over to enjoy the home of one of my heros, John Muir a.k.a. Father Of The National Parks. ❤
Cross Country Road Trip 6, Day 1: Adventure awaits! While they may look peaceful, these three were itching to go explore Badwater Basin. Thank goodness for the railing that gave me just enough time to finish slathering sunscreen on their sister’s pasty Midwestern skin before letting them loose. 💙💙💙 . . . . . . #roadtrip7 #familyroadtrip #roadtrip #roadtripping #exploremore #gooutside #optoutside #outdoorlife #outdoorlovers #goexplore #outdooradventures #gooutsideandplay #adventureawaits #adventuretime #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkgeek #the59parks #nationalpark #deathvalley #deathvalleynationalpark #california #californiaadventures #explorecalifornia #childhoodunplugged #childhoodmemories #candidchildhood #letthemexplore #letthekids #naturekids
Shoutout to Park Ranger @robbygiles for allowing us to repost this epic shot of Cedar Breaks National Monument.

One of the benefits of camping at white sands is you mostly have it all to your self during pre sunrise hours . One of the downfalls of camping at white sands is not being prepared to hike out to your site with all of your gear and the cold and extremely windy night temperatures😬
