Panther Creek Falls, a hidden gem inside the Gifford Pinchot National Forest. It's a short walk (0.4 miles round-trip) to a wooden viewing platform to marvel at this unique waterfall. Recommended coupling with nearby Falls Creek Falls. 📷 Sam Singler

Hello all, if you are planning a trip to the Lower Salt River, please be aware that most of the recreation areas are closed or in the process of being closed today due to the government shut down. There is no word yet on when they will reopen. Be sure to plan accordingly
she liked the eye being led where the body can not go she liked irregular brickwork when one can not tell if the craftsmanship is careless or masterly she liked the feeling of enclosure with the suggestion of expansiveness she liked when the view was not centered in the window but also liked remembering that views are by nature centered she like doorknobs that one wants to keep holding she liked steps up and steps down she liked shadows laid upon other shadows she liked breakfast banquettes she liked light woods and did not like masculine woods and did not care for steel and hated stainless steel and imitations of natural material where intolerable unless their fakeness was declared was the point in which case they could be quite beautiful she liked textures that the fingers and feet know even if the eye does not she liked more bookshelves then are necessary she liked skylights over showers but nowhere else she liked intentional imperfections but could not bear nonchalance but also liked to remember that there could be no such thing as an intentional imperfection people are always mistaking something that looks good for something that feels good
“For we need this thing wilderness far more than it needs us. Civilizations (like glaciers) come and go, but the mountain and its forest continue the course of creation’s destiny. And in this we mere humans can take part by fitting our civilization to the mountain.” An astute and still pertinent observation by Benton MacKaye, founder of the Appalachian Trail. #at #appalachiantrail #atlantatrails #bloodmountain #exploregeorgia #georgia #wandernorthga #hikega #hikegeorgia #georgiatrailheads #hiking #trails #optoutside #getoutdoors #wanderlust #wander #nature #naturephotography #chattahoocheenationalforest #blueridgemountains #mountains #conservationism #usforestservice #photooftheday #usforestservice #usinterior #trailful
One week into my training and conditioning for this year's Fire season #USForestService
I fucking miss this place 😔 This picture was taken 2 months before the Duarte Complex Fire in June 2016 that wiped out the entire canyon. I can honestly say fish canyon falls was probably my favorite waterfall and swimming hole hike in LA and hopefully it’s trail will be reopened in the near future 🙏🏻#fishcanyonfalls #hiddengeminLA #waterfall #swimminghole #hike #hiking #hikela #lahikes #secretspot #duarte #azusa #wildfire #onlyyoucanpreventwildfires #wildfires #smokeythebear #swimming #summer #nature #wilderness #naturalwonder #la #losangeles #angelesnationalforest #forestry #usforestservice #throwback
While enjoying an outing on the wonderful #crosscountryskiing trials of @rikertnordic (which span #nationalforest lands) I was reminded again how fortunate I (and all #Vermonters ) are to have the #greenmountainnationalforest out our back doors. Thanks @u.s.forestservice for your important work of #conservation and #preservation . In #2017 I also spent time in the #flatheadnationalforest #chugachnationalforest and #ouachitanationalforest as well as #glaciernationalpark #lakeclarknationalpark and #katmainationalpark . These #publiclands are priceless irreplaceable national treasures that should be protected and not exploited or sold. Thanks also @nationalparkservice @glacier_national_park @glaciernps @lakeclarknps and @katmainps @katmainpp for your important work. Get out and visit a #nationalpark and spend some time in your nearest national forest. Visit the nearest #usforestservice office and get some materials.
@thinair97008 "Sahalie Falls and Koosah Falls are located along the McKenzie Pass-Santiam Pass and West Cascades National Scenic Byways These falls mark the terminus of two thick flows of basaltic andesite lava that dammed Clear Lake and moved into the McKenzie River 3,000 years ago. The results are two breathtaking waterfalls with foaming white water cascades in between. Sahalie (or "Heaven") and Koosah (or "Sky") are #Chinook Jargon words - part of a rudimentary trade language that allowed people to exchange news and goods in the area. The Kalapuya, Molalla, Sahaptain and Chinook peoples traveled and traded here, perhaps on their way to obtain obsidian in the high Cascades or to gather huckleberries." https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/willamette/recarea/?recid=4404 #williamettenationalforest #nationalforest #sahaliefalls #waterfallphotography #cascades #northwestisbest #waterscapes #waterfall #forests #publiclands #scenicbyway #color_of_day #earthpics #earthart #beautifulshot #longexposhots #gohike #natgeolandscape #natureaddict #awesomephotographers #ig_oregon #pnwphotographer #usforestservice #longexposure #perfect_landscapes @u.s.forestservice
Learning about animals in winter at #whitefishmountainresort . Thank you #usforestservice !
Gotta be the best shelter on the AT...the Blood Mountain shelter comes complete with two rooms, an amazing view, and even a fireplace (though fires are restricted in the Blood Mountain Wilderness section of the AT currently). #atlantatrails #at #appalachiantrail #wandernorthga #bloodmountain #chattahoocheenationalforest #usinterior #usforestservice #wanderlust #wander #hiking #trails #hikega #hikegeorgia #georgiatrailheads #optoutside #getoutdoors #photooftheday

Georgia has some pretty nice spots along the Appalachian Trail with Blood Mountain being one of the more popular along its route through GA. It’s the highest mountain along the AT in GA (sixth highest mountain peak in GA overall) and offers impressive vistas that go on for miles and miles. The climb to the top via the Byron Herbert Reece Trail is relatively moderate (about 4 miles round trip with 1500 feet elevation gain). Be careful if you go now though as the trail is covered in ice. #atlantatrails #at #appalachiantrail #wandernorthga #trailful #bloodmountain #chattahoocheenationalforest #usinterior #usforestservice #hiking #trails #hikega #hikegeorgia #georgiatrailheads #nature #mountains #optoutside #getoutdoors #georgia #exploregeorgia #sunburst #wanderlust #wander #photooftheday
How about a Thursday throwback. Here's one of my favorite sawyer shots. Here Ray hopped up on his stump after falling a burning snag on the Snake Fire. It was a hurried shot because the snag had a rather large bald face hornet's nest in it and they were starting to get their wits back about them after going for a pretty good ride.

Maroon Bells by @iloveco_josha "The Maroon Bells are two peaks in the Elk Mountains, Maroon Peak and North Maroon Peak, separated by about a third of a mile. The mountains are on the border between Pitkin County and Gunnison County, Colorado, United States, about 12 miles southwest of Aspen. Both peaks are fourteeners. A US Forest Service sign on the access trail refers to these mountains as "The Deadly Bells" and warns would-be climbers of "downsloping, loose, rotten and unstable" rock that "kills without warning". Unlike other mountains in the Rockies that are composed of granite and limestone, the Bells are composed of metamorphic sedimentary mudstone that has hardened into rock over millions of years. Mudstone is weak and fractures readily, giving rise to dangerously loose rock along almost any route. The mudstone is responsible for the Bells' distinctive maroon color. The Bells got their "deadly" name in 1965 when eight people died in five separate accidents. Maroon Lake (9,580') occupies a basin that was sculpted by Ice-Age glaciers and later dammed by landslide and rockfall debris from the steep slopes above the valley floor."https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maroon_Bells #maroonbells #coloradotography #getoutdoors #discoverglobe #coloradorockies #igcolorado #rockymountains #perfectshot #ig_landscapes #mountainscape #reflections #waterscapes #lakes #forests #usforestservice #nationalforest #goparks #gohike #landscapelovers #natureperfection #natureaddict #naturephotography #earthart #natgeolandscape #beautifulearth #wildernessculture #colors_of_day #perfect_landscapes

Kancamagus by @derekfinnertyphotography One of the most beautiful stretches of road in the #northeast . There are countless adventures to be had all along the way. And don't let the locals hear you mispronounce it! :) "The Kancamagus Highway opened in 1959 after two dead-end stretches of road were linked, creating a connection between I-93 in Lincoln and NH 16 in Conway. Locally known as "The Kanc", the road was paved in 1964, and in 1968 it was plowed for the first time. The highway is named after #Kancamagus  (pronounced "Kank-ah-MAW-gus", "The Fearless One", third and final sagamore of the #Penacook Confederacy of Native American tribes. Nephew of #Wonalancet  and grandson of #Passaconaway , Kancamagus ruled what is now southern New Hampshire. Wearied of fighting English settlers, he made the decision in 1691 to move north into upper New Hampshire and what is now Quebec Canada." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Hampshire_Route_112 #kancamagus #kanc #newhampshirelife #nationalforest #usforestservice #scenicbyway #ignewengland #sunsetsky #wmnfhikers #wmnf #whitemountains #skyshots #exploreoutdoors #sky_brilliance #sunsets #mountains #forests #zenspace #earthfocus #beautifulsky #gohike #getoutdoors #beautifulearth #amazingplanet # #perfect_landscapes

Mt Rainier National Park by @ryan.kirschner.images "The mesmerizing sight of a never-ending column of water. The beauty and power in the roar of the falls. Because Mount Rainier is the most glaciated peak in the lower 48 states, the park alone is home to over 150 waterfalls, many over 300 feet in height. The 25 active glaciers also power a similar density of waterfalls outside the park boundaries. Many of these waterfalls can be seen from a roadside viewpoint while others are the reward of a day hike. Some are pretty and bubbly, others thunder with power. This list outlines those falls accessible and worthy of a visit. The list is growing, so check back as we add more falls." https://visitrainier.com/places-and-attractions/waterfalls/ #mtrainiernationalpark #mtrainier #waterfallphotography #washingtonstate #waterscapes #waterfall #forests #cascades #usnationalparks #earthpics #landscapelovers #earthart #usforestservice #earthfocus #nationalparkservice #amazingcolors #washingtonphotographer #amazingphoto #nationalparkgeek #natgeolandscape #rivers #naturephotography #gohike #longexposhots #pacificnorthwest #landscapephotography #beautifulearth #fantasticshotz #gameoftones #perfect_landscapes
If you’re looking for a challenging hike in Georgia, be sure to include the Coosa Backcountry Trail in your list as it’s nearly 13 miles long with about 3700 feet of elevation gain. It leaves out of Vogel SP and enters the Chattahoochee NF as it meanders through the Blood Mountain Wilderness. One of my favorite hikes in Georgia! #atlantatrails #coosa #coosabackcountry #vogel #vogelstatepark #gastateparks #friendsofgastateparks #exploregeorgia #wandernorthga #georgia #ice #snow #winter #chattahoocheenationalforest #hikega #hikegeorgia #georgiatrailheads #hiking #trails #optoutside #getoutdoors #wander #wanderlust #statepark #usinterior #usforestservice #blueridgemoments #bloodmountain
