It’s Friday, Travelers. What national park vista are you thinking of? Maybe a canyon view like this one at the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park? Or perhaps something totally different? Today’s edition of the National Parks Traveler features an article about White Sands National Monument in New Mexico, and another about parrot watching in the more exotic location of Abaco National Park in the Bahamas. So many national parks to visit! Just remember, whatever national park / monument / seashore / recreation area / historic site you visit, pack out what you pack in and stay on the trail. www.nationalparkstraveler.org. #nationalpark #nationalparks #arizona #grandcanyon #northrim #canyon #geology #clouds #overlook #exploremore #findyourpark #optoutside #goparks #landscapephotography #landscape #scenery #iphonepic

Another view in Ritchie Ledges. Despite the winter season, there is an abundance of green due to the moss and the pine trees all around. The sandstone cliffs formations and shade lead to some mossy fissures you can explore and feel transported away to some fantasy land at least partially removed from roads, highways, and urban development.

@gowthamramesh From the American Indian tribes who gathered resources in the area for millennia to the bustling park that exists on the land today, a wide variety of groups have found meaning and importance in the mountain now called Mount Rainier. All of these groups mapped their values on the landscape and contributed to a broader sense of what the area should be. Though these values were often very different and sometimes conflicted, they are all held together today in a delicate balance by the park. The mountain is a product of its past in more than just a geological sense: understanding the human history of Mount Rainier is crucial to realizing the intricacy of the mountain today.As European explorers began to ‘discover’ the Pacific Northwest in the latter half of the 18th century, they came to a land that was already inhabited by American Indian tribes. In the area around what is today Mount Rainier National Park, the Nisqually, Puyallup, Squaxin Island, Muckleshoot, Yakama, and Cowlitz tribes all used the natural resources surrounding the mountain they called “Takhoma.” Archaeological evidence traces native use of the area back 9,000 years. For millennia, the ancestors of modern tribes came to the mountain seasonally to hunt and gather resources. Today, those tribes continue to maintain a deep connection to the mountain. https://www.nps.gov/mora/learn/historyculture/mount-rainier-history.htm #mtrainier #nationalparkgeek #mtrainiernationalpark #mountains_seas_and_trees #goparks #bestdestination #beautifulscenery #volcanoes #reflections_masters #reflection_shotz #moodygram #visualofearth #worldwide_shot #ig_bestshotz #mountainscape #sunsets_fx #sunset_vision #ourforest

While in Katmai National Park, Alaska I photographed a female grizzly and her two cubs for a couple of hours as they fed on salmon that were spawning along the shore of the Cook Inlet in preparation for the onset of hibernation in a couple of weeks. This two year old cub was scouting along the shore when he spotted some salmon in the water. He immediately transformed into predator mode with a laser focus on catching his prey. The salmon didn’t have a chance.

I love snow. I miss snow. I love how it crunches under your feet. I love how it drifts down. I love snowflakes. I love how clouds undulate and waft over the mountains when they’re carrying snow. I love the bracing cold and all the cozy sweaters you get to wear for snow. Snow is cool. Leave snow alone. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk. Yours, A Floridian.

“Of all the sights I love in this world—and there are plenty—very near the top of the list is this one: dogs without leashes.” Mary Oliver 📖 🐕 I was sad to hear of the passing of Mary Oliver yesterday. I was first introduced to her work through our mutual love of dogs and her book of poems called “Dog Songs”. Sadly I was attracted to it, not because I knew of her and how great she is, but because of the book jacket and title. Who wouldn’t love a book of poems on dogs? Since then, she has become one of my favorite authors. Her poems and essays constantly help me to see our world in new ways. I look forward to discovering more of her work in the future. 📖 🐕 Current Books 📖: Dog Songs by Mary Oliver and Shoe Dog by Phil Knight

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” - Teddy Roosevelt . . . As the government shutdown is now the longest in history, my heart is with our national parks, monuments, lands, and all of the furloughed park employees. Please take a moment to visit @goparks to read about ways you can help. The best help is exactly as Teddy Roosevelt said above. Do what you can, where you are. Visit state parks or city parks and treat them well. Pack out what you pack in. Help clean up trash. Be respectful of the natural resources and if you see something, say something. Educate others , with kindness, about leave no trace principles. Consider the actions you take today to be good stewards of the greatest gift we can give our future. Thank you, friends. . . . . #wildandfreechildren #luckeywanderers #runwildmychild #optoutside #outdoorfamilies #goparks #findyourpark @rei #nationalparkgeek #olympicnationalpark #pnw #womenwhoexplore @olympic_nps #mylpguide #lonelyplanet #wanderlust

Almost every time I post something about the environment on my stories, I get one of two things: either someone telling me I'm not doing enough to help, or someone telling me climate change isn't real. But I keep thinking about the hike I did to one of the last glaciers left in Glacier National Park. It's real guys. And every little thing you do helps. So don't ever give up. 🌎

The coastal grizzly bears of Lake Clark National Park in Alaska were fascinating to watch and photograph. I tracked this female along with her two cubs for about three hours as they fed on the multitude of salmon that were spawning along the rivers that flow into the Cook Inlet. They were in hyper-fascia mode trying to consume as many calories as possible before they started their hibernation in a couple of weeks. Flocks of seabirds would cluster near the bears waiting to feast on the detritus of their feeding. It was stunning to see how many of these large salmon the bears consumed and how quickly they could strip the fatty meat from the bones.

"Seven things every child needs to hear: I love you, I’m proud of you, I’m sorry, I forgive you, I’m listening. This is your responsibility. You have what it takes to succeed." Sherrie Campbell 🌼 Being a teacher is so much more then telling kids what to do or what to think. But encouraging them to never stop asking, 'but Why?' As we get older we seem to conform to the status quo and accept that things just are the way they are. 🌼 I'll always try to teach students to never stop asking why, to stay curious, and to stay excited. I wish the same for you! 🌼 I love this quote but I'll change it a bit in case, as a grown up, you need to hear this: 🌼 I love you. I'm proud of you. I'm listening. This is your responsibility. You have what it takes to succeed.

Continuing my list of favorite places run by NPS, Bandelier National Monument was very memorable for us. The main attraction at Bandelier are the Ancestral Pueblo dwellings that visitors can climb into and explore. Our favorite parts were hiking the Falls Trail where we saw beautiful views including this waterfall behind us, and climbing 140 feet, up 4 wooden ladders to the Alcove House. Bandelier was beautiful, fun and so educational. • • Bandelier is near Los Alamos which is a very interesting town. Did you know Los Alamos is the birthplace of the atomic bomb? We visited the science museum where the Manhattan Project is highlighted and let me tell you, learning about the development of this weapon was really intense. Also, Valles Caldera National Preserve is nearby, where we hiked and explored a caldera created from a volcanic eruption millions of years ago. Overall, a really great area to visit. There is so much to see and do! There is also BLM land nearby for free camping. I’d return to this area in a heartbeat! #thevaliantlife #findyourpark #bandeliernationalmonument

I first saw a photo of the Arrigetch Peaks in late 2015 and I was immediately captivated by the idea of visiting them. I had never hiked in Alaska before and I wasn’t sure how to go about getting to those mountains in the picture, so I signed up for a 10 day guided trip with @expeditionsalaska. The trek with them would take me straight into the heart of the Arrigetch region in the summer of 2016. Before the trip I went back to the initial photo that captured my attention. I studied and admired it. I imagined myself standing at the base of those jagged peaks and feeling their immense presence. I do this often during the planning process of my trips. I guess it’s a little fantasy for when a trip is months away and the only thing on my agenda is going to and from the office. But never has my imagination come close to preparing me for the feelings a mountain landscape stirs deep within me. A feeling of being insignificant, but at the same time being a part of something magnificent. I know my photos can never capture that feeling either, it’s something that must be experienced. But I’ll keep trying...

Iceberg Lake, Glacier National Park. One of the first of many parks I've gone to out West. Still remains one of my absolute favorites. The pristine water of this lake is unforgettable. . . National Parks represent so much of what I love about this country. A shutdown puts all of this beauty at risk.
