This time next month I’ll be in San Francisco for a few days and spending the weekend in Yosemite. The first time I went to Yosemite was 4 years ago and it was brief and rained half the time. So if you have recommendations for San Francisco or Yosemite, I’m all ears!
🦈🦁🏜🏖It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.

Abolitionist John Brown attacked the US arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia (now West Virginia) #OTD in 1859. His raid was defeated by US Marines under the command of Colonel Robert E. Lee, failed to accomplish his goal of sparking an armed slave revolt. It did, however, further polarize people in the North and South over the issue of slavery. John Brown was tried, convicted, and hanged for treason against the Commonwealth of Virginia, even though his offenses occurred on federal property. Reactions to his execution further highlighted the widening gulf between North and South. Edmund Ruffin, later one of the first Confederates to fire at Fort Sumter, witnessed Brown's execution. He later mailed pikes, that were carried by Brown and his followers, to Southern governors as physical reminders of the threat to the institution of slavery by armed abolitionists. #nationalparkservice #fortsumter #fortmoultrie #civilwar

Snowy egrets are beautiful birds who use those yellow feet to stir up prey like this fish. You can learn more about this lovely bird on our blog for Bird of the Month- July. http://bclandtrust.org/bird-of-the-month-snowy-egret/ #Repost @icapturetheaction • • • • • A Snowy with it’s catch. #cayersphotography #abc7eyewitness #nbc4you #cbsla #abc7news #florafauna_in #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_ig #bird_brilliance #marvelouz_animals #wildlifephotography #instabird #birdphotography #live_love_wildlife #epic_birds #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #best_birds_of_ig #birds_adored #nature_brilliance #nationalparkservice #findyourpark #snowyegret #wetlands #bolsachicawetlands #bolsachica_lt #birdsonearth

If you’ve been to Yellowstone National Park, comment below 👇🏼 what was your favorite thing about your trip? I’d say my favorite thing from all my trips to Yellowstone has to be the wildlife. #nationalparks #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #nationalparksusa #nps #nationalparkgeek #usparksandmonuments #usparks #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstonenps #yellowstonenp #yellowstone #lamarvalley #nikon #nikond3400 #nikonphotography #wildlifephotography #wildlife #blackbears #bears #bear #bearsofinstagram

The Frost Line: Flying in the crisp morning air with @shotsfromabove over the dunes, tracing the morning frost along sand ridges into the sunlight. This was the most incredible hour of my life, experiencing freezing hands and pure exhilaration and adrenaline all at once. What an incredible morning to be alive. To fly. To see this place from an entirely new perspective. . . #greatsanddunesnationalpark #nationalparkservice
Best way to experience the changing of the seasons is to get out there and see the amazing colors! This was one of my favorite hikes yet in Oregon! The Silver Falls State Park was funded as part of the New Deal and constructed as a Recreational Demonstration Area. Where over the years the Conservation Corps created an amazing set of trails for future generations to learn and experience nature. It's rather interesting that the site was rejected as a National Park because of unattractive stumps left over from logging. It's certainly made a wonderful transition since! #hikeoregon #oregonlife #oregon #oregonexplored #pnwonderland #pnwlife #hiking #hikingadventures #myhappyplace #optoutside #oregonadventures #nps #nationalpark #nationalparkservice

"The #Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World" was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States and is recognized as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The #StatueofLiberty was dedicated in October 1886. It was designated as a National Monument in 1924. Employees of the National Park Service have been caring for the colossal copper statue since 1933. Have you visited Liberty Island? . #findyourpark #nationalparkservice #newyorkcity #upclose #ladyliberty

[havasupai, az] after hiking 10 miles with a heavy pack, this waterfall was quite a beautiful sight. 🙏🏻🙏🏻
Happy #traveltuesday For those who have been to glacier point you know that standing on this rock is not near as scary as it looks. Unless you are tall and lanky like me 😂🤙👍

Do you ever consider who receives packages, records incoming property, maintains logs of utility energy costs, helps manage park housing, and processes work orders? Hundreds of 📦 must be sorted and labeled, in addition to maintenance requests assigned and followed through with. Seasonal housing arrangements can be a chaotic calendar of move ins and check outs. For every light turned on, thermostat kept running, and new inventory item added, there is a record kept. - One person takes care of all this at @cuyahogavalleynps , and it only encompasses some of her responsibilities as a #supply technician. Organization and time management are of the upmost importance with this kind of position, especially as it involves interdivisional support, data entry and analysis, and assurance that items get to where they need to be. #NPSportraits NPS/Kat Connelly

Instead of sleeping in, cuddling with our kitty Alfred, and then finally getting out of bed after 10am, this Sunday Kevin and I hit the road at 7am to drive 3 hours to @northcascadesnps. . . My original plan was for us to go on a 10 mile hike up to the peaks of the Cascade range, through the yellow larches; but our bodies had other plans. Both of us were feeling as if a cold was coming on, so we decided to take it easy and not make our bodies feel worse by climbing up the side of a mountain. Instead we took it slow, driving through the park from West to East, stopping at short trails and overlooks to take in the cold, crisp air and views of the freshly snow-dusted peaks. . . Not every single day off work has to be an epic adventure of pushing our bodies to the limit. It’s ok to take the adventure at a slower pace; sit back, enjoy the ride, and maybe you will discover something you wouldn’t have otherwise.
I miss this everyday! The freedom to just go! Road trips and all the beautiful views along the way. Can’t wait to be back in the states doing what I love ⛺️🏜🛣 • • • • #keepnaturewild #wildkeeper

To my sweet little pup. The one who will always hike 3 times the distance I do. The one who never says no to adventure. The one who feels anxious and trapped in slot canyons. The one who has a wider range of emotions than most humans. I love you. You are fierce. You are brave. I am infinitely grateful for you. Thanks for letting me comfort you in your moments of weakness. #parkertheadventurepup
To truly experience the Grand Canyon you have to hike into it. Unfortunately, every route in includes many, many, many switchbacks. Hard on the knees but 100% worth it.

Imagine you live in a metropolitan area. The city life wearied you physically and emotionally. And within 30-minute driving distance, you get to see this wilderness to escape from city life and refresh your mind. This is Cuyahoga Valley National Park situated in the middle of Cleveland-Akron metropolitan area. I believe people who go hiking in nature are much more nicer because nature does that to people. It just does. On another note, don’t you think this Moss-y boulders are photogenic? #cuyahogavalleynationalpark #ohio #visitohio #travel #adventure #boulder #moss #wilderness #ledges #hike #forest #gohiking #nature #nationalparkgeek #nps #nationalparks #nationalpark #nationalparkservice

Our greatest adventure begins in November! We are so humbled and overjoyed by this little life that the Lord has entrusted to us. Lil’ Sweet, you are so very much loved and prayed for...we cannot wait to meet you! “You will keep in perfect peace, him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord Himself, is the Rock eternal.” // Isaiah 26:3-4 #mcdowellmcbaby #happycamper 👶🏻❤️🎉
