[#sponsored ] Walking around Portland’s parks in fall, I feel dumbfounded by beauty. Evergreens on the breeze. Canada geese loudly quacking their presence. The last remaining fall leaves on maples and alders, red and gold, proudly defying the inevitable. For most of my life, I never thought about nature, or felt moved to get out in it. I had no idea what it could do for my quality of life, especially for my mental state. Nature is so accessible here! It’s not like this everywhere. I’m grateful to be able to easily get out and get that nature healing even on a busy work day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What might nature do for you? @UnlikelyHikers is partnering with @REI to encourage you to #OptOutside November 24th! If you’re in the Portland area, join us for a short nature walk at Whitaker Ponds. We will identify plants, trees and animals and talk about the land we recreate on. There will also be a photo contest with PRIZES! Invite is on the Facebook page as well as the blog ▶️ jennybruso.com (clickable link in profile) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸: @jennybruso ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Location: Whitaker Ponds, Portland, Oregon. Ancestral land of the Chinook, Multnomah, Kathlamet & Clackamas. #whitakerponds ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tag #unlikelyhikers or #unlikelyhiker to be featured! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [image description: profile of person dressed for cooler temps at a pond with fall leaves.

Actually, the whole of Cupressaceae kind of has me by the heartstrings.
“Spending time outdoors is a gift to myself. A way to appreciate my body and its ability and a way to still my mind, reconnect with my purpose and gain perspective. It's an active form of meditation that enriches my senses and reminds me that I am both powerful and insignificant which is an incredible realization to have.” -Jessica / @round_the_way_gal ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pronouns: she/her ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Location: Aliso and Wood Canyons Regional Park, Orange County, California.

Today I made my way from #Sedona to #Tonto #NationalMonument (@tontonps ) near #Roosevelt #Arizona . The well preserved #CliffDwellings were occupied by the #Salado culture during the 13th, 14th and early 15th centuries. I also had the pleasure to meet @rangerchrista who happens to be friends with a couple of @nationalparkservice Rangers that I know though volunteering at @johnmuirnps. #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #NPS101 #Parks101 #OptOutside
“Nature is more than just an aesthetic. One of the biggest misconceptions we humans have created is that we are separate from nature. Truth is, we are nature and nature has been an intimate part of our ancestors lives for thousands of years. Hiking and recreating as the way we see it now is only a contemporary way society has formed its relationship with it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nature has no race or gender roles. That's my favorite part of being in the outdoors as a Queer and Transgender Person of Color (QTPoC). I think about how much privilege I have with an able body and enough resources to be able to explore nature. The fact that I can access clean air, water and nature as far as the horizon goes is not something I take for granted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I hike, I acknowledge the beautiful struggle it is to be alive. Every breath of oxygen is my own and I feel the most affirmed by the way nature greets me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Towering ancestral trees remind me to persist, regardless of where I am rooted. Rivers remind me of the thirst for constant change and movement as a part of life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The mountains whisper, "everything happens with time." As they themselves did now grow in a day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The ocean reminds me of the deep and endless ways to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When I hike in nature, I am home. Existing in nature as my holistic self is what makes me an #UnlikelyHiker .” -Genomé / @qtpoc_adventures ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pronouns: they/them/theirs, he/him/his, él/élle ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tag #unlikelyhikers or #unlikelyhiker to be featured! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [image description: person in full outdoors gear smiles next to a tree in the woods, brightly backlit by sun.]
You'll never run out of things to do and see in a national park! There is just too much to explore; from beautiful landscapes to the interesting things that live in them. These almost-microscopic creatures are bryozoans that form colonies on seaweed leaves. @acadianps #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #acadianationalpark #nps #nps101 #maine #maineoutdoors #macro #science #nerd #perspective

As the various storms move through the local area this week, the Corps of Discovery also experienced a large amount of wind and rain while camped on the Columbia River. Private Joseph Whitehouse wrote on this day in 1805, “....We are now in plain view of the Pacific Ocean . the waves rolling, & the surf roaring very loud. on the opposite shore to us we discovered, the Tops of trees which we supposed to be on an Island laying a very great distance in the Ocean. We are now of opinion that we cannot go any further with our Canoes, & think that we are at an end of our Voyage to the Pacific Ocean, and as soon as discoveries necessary are made, that we shall return a short distance up the River & provide our Selves with Winter Quarters.” Who can guess where the winter quarters were build and what did they name it?! #fortclatsop #lewisandclarknhp #lewisandclark #capedisappointment #columbiariver #nationalparkservice #findyourpark #EncuentraTuParque #optoutside #astoriaoregon #oregoncoast
