And so we’re at the last photo from the first road trip of the summer. Still got another cross country trip to go through as well as everything in between 😰 man am I backlogged on photos!
The best places are the ones you go into with no expectations. There weren’t pictures of this canyon online, but a chance conversation with a park ranger had us driving down 20 miles of the worst washboard dirt road I’ve experienced, landing us in a pull-off 8 miles from the mouth of the slot. A fun trek that was more of an adventure than we could’ve hoped for. Pc: @cnic29
Hall of the Giants, part of the “Big Room” in Carlsbad Caverns. On the left is Giant Dome, a column over 60ft tall accompanied on the right by formations called draperies. Some of these formations, that take millions of years to create, can only be described as absolutely breathtaking. @carlsbadcavernsnps. • • #NationalParkOdyssey #NationalPark #NationalParkGeek #Adventurenthusiasts #GoExplore #AdventureIsOutThere #NPS #National_Park_Photography #ParkRoamers #NationalParkObsessed #FindYourPark #TheNationalParksPass #NationalParkLife #USParksAndMonuments #AmongTheWild #AmericasBestIdea #GetOutside #GoParks #USInterior #NationalParksAndMonuments #ParkRoamers #HikingTheGlobe #Caves #NewMexico #CarlsbadCaverns #BigRoom #HallOfTheGiants #GiantDome

A stunning sunset from the iconic Snake River Overlook, Wyoming •••• ⛰ Grand Teton National Park ⛰ •••• I drove all day from Missoula to Jackson through rain most the day, but just as I was arriving into Grand Teton National Park the last of the clouds were clearing and this awesome sunset happened! Sometimes you just get lucky! . . . . . . #findyourpark #nationalpark #grandtetonnationalpark #thenationalparkspass #discover_wyoming #jacksonhole #tetoncollective #theoutbound #outdoorproject #wyoming #artofvisuals #theimaged #earthexclusive #canon_photos #wildernessculture #exploretocreate #optoutside #getoutdoors #colors_of_day #amongthewild #landscapephotography #landscape #sunsets #nationalparks #canon #pictureline #earthcapture #sunset_pics #grandtetons
Had to run an errand for work (see my story) but that put me in a position to be adjacent to #BiscayneNationalPark for a few hours in #mathesonhammockpark . Not a bad way to spend a Tuesday afternoon. 🙌🏼
Bison Valley - population: a lot
It's a travesty that our Commander in Chief shrunk the size of these magical lands by upwards of a million acres. Maybe if he played less golf and witnessed more beauty such as this he would have a different opinion. It really was truly amazing how alive I felt watching the sunrise at this height, being able to see farther and farther the lighter it got.

White Sands National Monument at 104 degrees. @orangellama and I trekked it. We did it. It’s stupendous. #nationalparklife #nationalparkgeek #nature #hike #beauty #beautiful #national_park_photography #thenationalparkspass #love
When I go to NPS sites, I love to talk with the rangers to get an in-depth perspective of the park. The first time I went to @BigBendNPS , I asked a ranger what the one thing was visitors should understand about Big Bend. ⠀ He responded that there wasn't one, but three. ⠀ ⠀ First, the night sky wasn't degraded, and it was special for more than just seeing constellations-it's about understanding that for thousands of years, the night sky was a source of direction and creating of myths and morals. ⠀ ⠀ Second, visitors should be comfortable in the silence of Big Bend. ⠀ ⠀ Lastly, the natural landscape is intact and the river is not dammed in this area.⠀ ⠀ 📍: Big Bend National Park, Texas⠀ 📅 : October 2016⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #nationalparkgeek #IBrakeForBrownSigns #getolympus
Fort Point National Monument sits below the Golden Gate Bridge within Golden Gate National Recreation Area. It’s not often that you see two parks colliding like this. Golden Gate NRA is one of the largest urban parks (and our largest urban National Park) in the world. #nationalparklife #nationalparkgeek #nature #hike #beauty #beautiful #national_park_photography #thenationalparkspass #love
Old faithful - an American icon and natural wonder
Timpanogos Cave National Monument is located within the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. There are three distinct interconnected (WPA built) caves that contain many beautiful speleothems. The caves can be accessed via a 1.5 mile trail that ascends 1,092 feet. Although the first picture is not of the caves, I thought this Monument has the coolest location for a restroom that I have seen so far in the park system! Swipe to see pics inside of Timpanogos Cave! #nationalparklife #nationalparkgeek #nature #hike #beauty #beautiful #national_park_photography #thenationalparkspass #love #wnpa1938

Happy 112th Birthday Petrified Forest National Park! On December 8, 1906, Petrified Forest National Monument was established in Arizona. It straddles Apache and Navajo lands and has been inhabited for thousands of years. Petrified Forest was once a lush forest 218 million years ago. Now the fossilized remains of the forest lie within colorful badlands extending from the Painted Desert. #nationalparklife #nationalparkgeek #nature #hike #beauty #beautiful #national_park_photography #thenationalparkspass #love
Couldn’t miss an @EvergladesNPS sunset during the park’s birthday week, could I? #FindYourPark
"Who will gainsay that the parks contain the highest potentialities of national pride, national contentment, and national health? A visit inspires love of country; begets contentment; engenders pride of possession; contains the antidote for national restlessness.... He is a better citizen with a keener appreciation of the privilege of living here who has toured the national parks." - Stephen Mather
I’ve been lucky enough to see multiple owls at once while in EVER, but these two were really fun to watch. They preened each other, hooted and called to each other, and when they bored with that and the group of people watching them, they flew off to go hunting.
