Pristine Crater Lake. When we visited at the end of summer, the park was filled with wildfire smoke, and the visibility from the rim road was hazy. But once we hiked down the lake, the color was simply breathtaking. Loved the experience.

Canyonlands National Park, Island in the Sky District. Enjoying a rainy day in San Francisco with @orangellama and thinking about sweeping desert landscapes with moody skies. A stark contrast to San Francisco.

Got the first trip of the upcoming year on the calendar and couldn’t be more excited to dip my feet into the world of ultra running at the @madmoose.events Behind the Rocks 50k! Stoke tank is very full for this upcoming Moab trip and for the training process to commence!

Have you stayed in a National Park before? We don't stay in the parks very often, but this little cabin was so worth it. We loved being steps from Lake McDonald, a short walk to amenities, and the convenience of not having to drive to the park to start each day. The only real downside to our stay here was that the interior of the cabin was not very tall and Hubs struggled to stay upright at times with less than an inch between his head and the ceiling in most spots. 😂⠀

One of the best gifts I've ever been given is the same you were also given: The US National Park Service, the hundreds of units, millions of acres, countless natural and cultural resources, gazillions of miles to hike, climb or paddle, monuments, sea shores, historical sites, museums, parks, trails and roadways, all operated by oodles of Park Service employees, who, nearly to a person,  will greet me with a smile and the offer to help. .
.
That gift protects an enormous inventory that belongs to you and me, and will -- hopefully -- belong to our children, our grandchildren, our grandchildren's grandchildren...for as long as we are a nation.  A gift we gave ourselves that lasts for generation after generation. .
.
It's wonderful. Truly.  And I appreciate that gift almost daily, and celebrate nearly as often right here on Instagram and Facebook. .
.
If you haven't already, give yourself the gift this year of an All  Agency Pass.  For $80, you can come and go at will to every unit the Park Service operates, and numerous other Federal Fee Area sites. .
.
Ironically, I didn't NEED my Annual Pass here at Mabry Mill on the Blue Ridge National Parkway, but this unit of the Park System in Virginia is just another example of places I can to visit when I travel around the country, where I know I belong. And so do you. (New edit of a photo taken a few years ago when I was on a work assignment in Washington, D.C.)

Lower Two Medicine Lake located on the Eastern side of Glacier National Park in Montana. Prior to the ‘Going to the Sun Road’ being built, the Two Medicine area of the park was the most popular area of the park due to the Great Northern Railway depot being located nearby. Rail was the main way visitors arrived in the early days of the park. 🚂🏔🛶@glaciernps.

Avalanche Lake is always a good choice for a quick hike with some breathtaking views. During summer I like to go early in the morning, late in the day or at least during the week to avoid the busier crowds ⛰

If you've ever been to Yellowstone, this is a common scene through much of the park in the early morning hours. Granted this is also Old Faithful but the whole place is flooded with steam vents. This is a shot from when I really had no clue what I was doing (still dont) but I just made sure to enjoy every moment I encountered and capture it to the best of my ability. I guess thats all we can really ever ask from ourselves, not just in photography but with everything we do in life.

This is why I backpack. Love how the color of the stars show up and are amplified by the slightly blurred reflection on the lake. That’s Mars trying to steal the show!

The last time I had set foot in @GlacierNPS was the summer between my junior and senior years of high school. However, I vividly remember Lake McDonald and the wonderful time my family spent along its shores. Returning this past summer brought back those special memories and that made me even more excited to share the park with Hubs. Do you have a special place in our public lands that hold special memories for you? Share them below!

The bright sunrise glows throughout Hoh Rainforest as I stand among the foliage silently towering above. Without experiencing this firsthand, it's difficult to put the magnitude of the forest into perspective. It has a way of showing our insignificance in such a massive world.

It is going to rain from today afternoon until tomorrow morning here in San Jose, California; and the kid in me is already thinking of seeing a rainbow! 
Here is a throwback picture from several years back, when it was showing up in the high Sierra and the Sierra foothills enjoyed a vivid double rainbow right before sunset.

It is time for #ParkSquareSunday once again! This week features the park I worked at for the 75th anniversary of the National Park Service in 1991: Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, within sight of Chicago. I worked Spring and Summer there, both of which were pretty busy. Last February’s Visit was decidedly NOT busy...not sure why! 😏⠀

Just north of Las Vegas lies the little-known Tule Springs Fossil Beds, where snow-white deposits of prehistoric organisms were abundant.  They contrasted with the black mountains in the back, composing a uniquely beautiful scenery.  A half-day stroll there was a slow-paced, mind-calming experience.

Here is the full scene, my last two posts were closeups of these two openings...
The sky began to glow like a wildfire after sunset. Unfortunately I already departed this spot and had to enjoy the show on my long walk back to the car. This happens quite often with my cave adventures as conditions require me to get going pretty quickly. Encroaching tides and darkness are strong motivators when you are alone, without cell service, in a cave.  Getting into and navigating these delicate slippery environments is challenging enough, having to race the clock is a whole extra level of stress.  While getting here is fairly simple, but even at the lowest possible tides there is a small section of beach where the cliffs protrude into the water, forcing you to scramble over rocks with waves crashing on them - not advisable in the dark, which rising water levels. #marincounty #marinmagazine #shootlocal #seacave #seacaves #seascape #landscapephotomag #wildbayarea #wildcalifornia #explore #earthpix #earth_shotz #exploretocreate #exposing_negatives #nationalpark #national_park_photography #nationalparks #usinterior

You can’t tell from the picture but during this moment the elk was surrounded by 10+ people all trying to get as close as possible for a picture on cell phones or cameras with lenses not made for wildlife photography. I was really upset in this moment and I’ve realized I’m running into this situation all the time now. It’s been especially bad with the moose lately because they will walk right up to the road to lick salt off of vehicles. Of course this makes for amazing pictures but is it worth it? They may look fine but having people all around them could be causing a lot of stress that they certainly do not need during the winter. When I roll up on this situation I rarely take pictures now because it just upsets me if I stay to long. #keepwildlifewild

For my 100th post, I figured I’d post a picture with 3 of my favorite things. A new day, Maui, and a National Park.
🌋 🌅 
Freezing for the sunrise while above the clouds, at over 10,000ft at Haleakalā National Park. 🥶 IT. WAS. SO. COLD. We even dressed warm, but it wasn’t enough.

An Overcast Morning in the Dunes

You often hear how the desert cools off at night,  but i arrived at Mesquite Sand Dunes in the middle of the night to give it to the dunes for sunrise.  In late May, it really isn't very cool at night.

And the sunset never popped, but the experience was incredible nonetheless.

An Overcast Morning in the Dunes You often hear how the desert cools off at night, but i arrived at Mesquite Sand Dunes in the middle of the night to give it to the dunes for sunrise. In late May, it really isn't very cool at night. And the sunset never popped, but the experience was incredible nonetheless. #deathvalley  #deathvalleynationalpark  @deathvalleynps #findyourpark  #nationalparkgeek  #landscape_lovers  #earth_pix  #stayandwander  #hikevibes  #hikersofinstagram  #desertvibes  #optoutside  #exploreourearth  #sonyalpha  #sonyimages  #earth_shotz  #shotzdelight  #natgeoyourshot  #earthfocus  #landscapephotography  #ig_color  #ourplanetdaily  #usinterior  #westbysouthwest  #national_park_photography  #amongthewild  #californialove 
Much of Wales' scenery is spectacular, and environmentally important. To protect the environment certain parts of Wales have been designated as "National Parks" or as "Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty". An area with either of these designation will have a high degree of protection from inappropriate development. Whilst these rules exist for environmental reasons, rather than to promote tourism, a visitor to these areas can be confident that they will see some unspoiled scenery. These areas offer some of Wales' most attractive scenery. The phrase 'good things come in small packages' may be a cliché, but in the case of Wales it's undeniably true. 🏞😍🇬🇧

When a bird poops it’s about to take off. I photographed this pair of eagles on Friday, as did a few other passerby’s. I watched as one person crept closer and closer to the birds, taking pictures the whole time, until the eagles finally stuck up their tail feathers and pooped. I thought, “okay, backoff, you’re freaking them out.” The person took another step and one of the birds took off. I thought, “surely, you’ll turn around now”, but no, the person took another step towards the remaining bird, and another until it too flew off. This person then turned on a dime and walked straight back to their car. “Mission accomplished” I thought with a sigh. We’ve got to respect these animals and give them the space they require. Want to get closer? Fine, but watch for the signs. If an animal changes it’s behavior because of your presence you are too close. Shoot from your car. I started much closer to these birds but was in my car the whole time, using it like a blind. Let the animals come to you. What the person who scared them didn’t know is that there was a third Eagle. Had we all waited patiently we may have been treated to an even more spectacular sight.

"Play takes place in a condition of freedom - that is to say, it IS the condition of freedom.  In play, the individual interacts with the forces around her rather than reacting to them, creates the context for her actions as she acts rather than passively being shaped by the situation: it is thus that self-determinstion is possible."
