I had the distinct pleasure of visiting @alcatraznationalpark for the first time this weekend (the park is primarily operated by concession and nonprofit partners and was thus not as adversely affected by the #shutdown as other #nationalparks and #publicland ). In addition to the prison history - and the fantastic audio tour - the island is home to many birds and peaceful sections of dilapidated buildings and sprawling gardens gone wild. Stepping just a short distance away from the often crowded prison areas will get you to spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate. The Island is also home to the birthplace of the modern #redpower Indian Rights movement, and exhibits detail the fascinating history of the 18-month occupation of the island (!) as well as its kind of genius legal underpinnings. #modernhiker #hiking #outdoors #sanfrancisco #goldengatenationalrecreationarea #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #history #nativeamerican #optoutside #neverstopexploring @goldengatenps
It’s been a week since my last hike, but thankfully I’m free tomorrow so I’ll get some outdoor cardio at Cleveland National Forest... also I’m ready to go back to Utah in March 🤙🏽 #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #optoutside • • • • • #hikelife #backpackinglife #sundayfunday #utahisrad #utahbound #hikeutah #solotraveler #solobackpacker #backpackingtraining #greatoutdoors #snowcanyon #visitcalifornia #moosejawmadness #camplife #doyouevenhike #legday #fitspo #fitnessgoals #goprohero6 #goprooftheday #gopro

Hoy es Domingo familiar 👪 y ya estado tan lindo el clima que aprovechamos para ir al parque. Definitivamente Camila y Bolillo eran los más felices. A Veces todo lo que necesitamos es salir afuera a respirar aire fresco y movernos un poco. ¿Cómo va su Domingo? #unaMexicanaenUSA . . Sé que lo he mencionado otras veces, pero una de las cosas que más me gustan aquí en Estados Unidos es la cantidad de parques y espacios recreativos que hay. Nos encantan los parques porque en su mayoría hemos tenido muy buena experiencia. En todos los lugares que hemos vivido, siempre ha habido un parque cerca. Con todo y su espacio de juegos para los niños., grandes áreas verdes y caminos para vaminar/correr o andar en bici. Hay que aprovechar estos espacios y también cuidarlos mucho. Están ahí para nosotros ❤ #virginiaisforlovers #Henrico
The Antiquities Act may sound like a dusty old piece of legislation, a relic of a bygone era that long ago ceased to have relevance for average Americans. But you will spill your popcorn to learn that the Antiquities Act—considered America’s first preservation law enacted in 1906—continues to play a critical role in protecting places across the country that have been featured in some of Hollywood’s best-known blockbusters. Head to the link in our profile to check out “10 Iconic Movie Sets Starring the Antiquities Act.”

This Thursday our education team partnered with local educators to develop lesson prototypes! We spent time previewing the new DHC, practicing technology integration, and honing our lens-based thinking skills. Thanks teachers! #PEC #parkeducation #PBSL #discoverhistorycenter #morristownnhp #encuentratuparque #findyourpark

“Feeling a lot of gratitude today for the skin I’m in. This body has taken me on great adventures and gotten me through some hard situations. It’s been a love/hate relationship, but this body is resilient. Strong. Brave. Even though I don’t always treat it with kindness and love, it always moves me forward. I’m a motherfucking woman and a work in progress. A woman learning to live my best life right now and not wait for a number or size to start living.” -Gabriela / @gabs_hurt ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Location: Toketee Falls, Glide, Oregon.

#fbf El año pasado visitamos por primera vez el Glacier National Park que se Encuentra en Montana y nos enamoramos. Esta foto es del Lago McDonald, que nos quedaba al pie de donde acampamos. 36 horas de viaje bien valieron la pena. #unamexicanaenusa @glaciernps #glaciernps
There are plenty of volunteer opportunities at Lewis and Clark National Historical Park and we LOVE our volunteers! Pictured here are some of our Living History Associates, who assist with safe costumed interpretation of early 19th century skills including quill pen writing, hide tanning, rendering, making tallow candles and flint and steel fire starting. With additional training volunteers can also assist with flintlock muzzleloading and firing. This work occurs in the summer from mid June to labor day, the week after Christmas, and for other special events throughout the year. If you are interested in joining the park as a living history volunteer please get in contact with our volunteer program manager at 503-861-4424 or complete an application at www.nps.gov/volunteer. #lewisandclarknhp #lewisandclark #findyourpark #findyourvolunteeropportunitiy #encuentratuparque #fortclatsop #nps #nationalparkservice #livinghistory
Happy #findyourparkfriday to all!! We’re celebrating @zionnps in Utah today! We really enjoyed learning more about the park while riding the shuttle on the way to hike the narrows. The park is rich in history from prehistoric findings to biblical connections. We would like to encourage you to grab a junior ranger book, hop aboard the shuttle, and attend a ranger-led program next time you visit Zion to get the full story. Nobody likes spoilers, so go and find this park for yourself! #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #nationalparkgeek #notsojuniorrangers #explorelearnprotect #zionnationalpark #virginriver #hikethenarrows #utahsmighty5 #beautahful #letskeepitwild
Bartlett Cove put on a show last night. Without tours running, winter can be quiet in Glacier Bay but sights like this are highlights of the season. NPS Video/ M. Tankersley #Aurora #northernlights #FindYourPark
It's time again #FormationFriday ! It's a bit snowy outside, so we will check out the caves today. Just in this one photo there are many formations, some that formed as the lava dripped down from the ceiling, like lavacicles, and some that formed as lava flowed around obstacles, like the pillar. Lava can slowly drain out over time, creating the benches you see on the sides. . . . .

“Living in a world where your existence alone is considered an act of radical self love and resistance, the outdoors provides me with a sense of relief, tranquility and affirmation. Gentle reminders from the elements remind me that I am strong, I am able and I belong. A warm shield from the evil that exists in the world, letting us know that this earth is so much bigger and kinder than we are. Forever taking time to express gratitude for the world around me, and the opportunity to experience Mother Nature. What a privilege it is that I get to exist because of you, in you and with you. I am a man of trans* experience, I am a hiker, and I belong here.” -Dani / @dammmnit_dani ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pronouns: he/him ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Location: Eagle Creek, Columbia River Gorge, Oregon.

#Repost @alaskanps ・・・ Sometimes bear viewing gets turned into people viewing. When most people envision @Katmainpp , they think of bears. #Katmai is one of the premier #brownbear viewing areas in the world.

“I’ve said this many times, hiking is such a metaphor for life.... there are obstacles, some that are easier than others and some that seem nearly impossible, but there is always a point where you’re so grateful for every hurdle you’ve tackled because the reward is oh so sweet. I sometimes get discouraged because those beautiful moments seem fleeting, but such are the ebbs and flows of life. The lesson that I continue to learn is to enjoy the present moment, the hurdles and the rewards because in the end it all makes up our story. These adventures and lessons this year have taught me so much and I’m so grateful.” -@michellecanfly of @outdoorjournaltour ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Location: Rabun Bald, Georgia.

Went to the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, and was able to take a bit of a walk around town, looking for Wild Spaces hidden in the middle of town!
Winter sunsets at Bartlett Cove can be the most captivating of all. Those that brave the cold are often rewarded with a private showing, with only a loon or sea otter for company. #Alaska #sunset #FindYourPark

Hiking through the many slot canyons of Escalante is one of the most adventurous and remote places you can experience.

#WildlifeWednesday – This 7-second clip of a coyote at evening near the dunes, with the sound of another coyote calling nearby, is a glimpse of their graceful gait and heightened senses. Coyotes' sense of smell, hearing, and night vision are exceptional. The high yips, laughs, and howls of coyotes have always been a part of the human experience of North America at night. Because of the coyote’s wily personality and boisterous sounds, many American Indian tribes and frontier settlers developed stories and legends about them. The coyote's diverse calls - along with those of owls, frogs, toads, elk, and nighthawks - are part of experiencing Great Sand Dunes’ nocturnal environment under a spectacular night sky. Take time on your next visit to experience more of this diverse park and preserve. After all, half the park is after dark!
