A young Teddy Roosevelt visited North Dakota for the first time at age 23. He grew up sickly and asthmatic, but fount physically activity, particularly in the outdoors exhilarating. He became obsessed with becoming a cattle rancher, and though the ranching business was a disaster, he once said that he would never have became president were it not for his time in North Dakota.

Abstract - Miles --------------------- In Chinese painting, there is a saying, "idea present; brush may be spared." The meaning is that you can say so much by showing so little... as long as what is little is essential.  This scene reminded me of my mom's watercolors. . . . . . . . . . . . .#moodygrams #agameoftones #exploreeverything #artofvisuals #exploretocreate #visualsoflife #visualsofearth #awesome_earthpix #ig_color #weekly_feature #fartoodope #usaprimeshot #igmasters #hbouthere #createexplore #fatalframes #exploreeverything #master_shots #ig_mood #splendid_shotz #artofvisuals #visualsoflife #hot_shotz #earthpix #illgrammers #exklusive_shot #beautifuldestinations #ig_masterpiece #heatercentral #monoart
Have you hiked the Big Plateau loop? Some of our rangers did recently and snapped this photo as they crossed the Little Missouri. The river is an important part of the park. Not only does it provide water for the wildlife and plants of the park, but it's the major eroding force of the surrounding badlands. NPS photo: A.

Can you identify what animal this tail belongs to? This animal was seen along the trail to the Natural Entrance to Carlsbad Cavern. The answer will be revealed in tomorrow's post. NPS / Dan Pawlak #FindYourPark #NationalPark #EncuentraTuParque #CarlsbadCaverns
We were a bit early visiting #rockymountainnationalpark this year. Most of the park was covered in snow still! That didn't stop us one bit. We still hiked, drove, and 🔎 searched for animals...snow and all. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swipe 👈 to see on of our snow covered trails! The snow on the side of the lake is actually the trail. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #snowhike #snowypeaks #alpinelakes #snowplow #usnationalparks #usparksandmonuments #rmnp #nationalparkfoundation #nationalparklife #encuentratuparque #findyourpark #nps #wildandco #outherecolorado #coloradogram #coloradtography #explorecolorado #coloradocameraclub #coloradical #coloradooutdoors #coloradountamed #visitcolorado #coloradohiking #mountainlandscape #mountainhiking #mountainside #freshmountainair #mountainslover #mountainhike

For Latino Conservation Week, Latino Outdoors in San Antonio hosted a bike ride that went from Confluence Park -> Mission San Jose -> Mission San Juan -> Mission Concepcíon and back. Luckily for us, our resident Park Ranger Jorge came along and shared some knowledge with us. With generations of our families born and raised in San Antonio, it feels so good to not only learn about the history of our city and the river that runs through it, but to see it. It’s about connecting us to the natural and cultural legacy of these public places. A 3 hour bike ride, a leisurely 12 miles. We pushed ourselves physically on some hills and made some new friends. Took some pics and shared a meal. It was such a great day. #lcw2018 • Also, this is me, laughing at my self, taking a pic #forthegram , because everyone was watching! 😂 • #vamosafuera #satx #latinooutdoors #optoutside #missions #sanantoniomissions #sananto #sanantonio #missionsanjose #missionreach #sa300 #visitsanantonio #southsidesa #todosafuera #vamosoutdoor #findyourpark #nps #missionsnps #encuentratuparque #takethepictures #masforhemasses #discoverthepast #txlatinoblog #satxbloggers #nationalparks

At 10:51AM on friday July 20th I reached the summit of the tallest mountain in California, as well as the highest summit in the lower 48 states and the Sierra Nevada. Mount Whitney, you kicked my ass. - I started my trek at 3AM from Whitney Portal and it took me a total of 14 hours to complete a 22mi round trip. It was a super long and exhausting journey, but I haven't felt this accomplished since completing my frist marathon few years ago. This was my first 14er and I can't wait to do it again :) - #outdoorlos #itswhitneybitch
LAST-MINUTE CONTENDER . There was a last minute entry in our mascot dance-off, representing @k9s4conservation ! Sadly, we didn’t catch a video of their sick moves.

O.M.G. We went on a free "slough slog" in Everglades National Park today, and it was so incredible! One of my favorite nature adventures ever (and I've done quite a few)! When it isn't churned up by our footsteps, the water is so clear and beautiful in the cypress dome we explored. Loved it! Thanks to the NPF, the Hispanic Access Foundation and the Latino Heritage Internship Program for such a special tour! #evergladesnationalpark #evergladeslcw2018 #encuentratuparque #southflorida #naturelovers #adventurebuddies #latinoconservationweek2018

"Come Away With Me" by Norah Jones started playing over our little Bluetooth speaker that was sitting on the hood of the Subaru; so I grabbed your hand and pulled you in close. I could hear the Flathead river rushing right next to our camp, pine needles crackled and hissed in the fire, the breeze was cool and moist against our skin, and there we swayed, slow-dancing under the Douglas firs. "And in that moment, I swear we were infinite." • • • #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #goatworthy #gopro #livelifeproof #optoutside #getoutstayout #spreadstoke @goparks #glaciernationalpark #glacier #the59parks #radtravel #GlacierNPS #Montana #ModernOutdoorsmen #Wanderlust #NeverStopExploring @visitmontana #weekendvoyagers #gearforgood #wearethewild #myoutdoorstory #publiclands #liveyouradventure #gearjunkielife #gearforgood #exploremontana #visitmontana #sonyalpha #subaru #liveauthentic #livelifeproof
On his 22nd birthday, Theodore Roosevelt married Alice Hathaway Lee. Their daughter, Alice Lee Roosevelt, was born on February 12, 1884. Two days after his daughter was born, his wife and mother died on the same day in the same house. Distraught, he escaped to a cattle ranch in the Dakotas. A land that would both heal his soul and shape his future presidency. On this episode of America’s National Parks Podcast, @theodorerooseveltnps and the land that made a president.

Sandy Hook welcomes all kinds of visitors, even the furry variety. Dogs are allowed to run and walk on our Multi-Use Pathway (MUP) and enjoy the Bayside beaches and water. Pet owners must keep their furry friends on a leash while they enjoy Sandy Hook. From March until October, dogs are ONLY allowed on the MUP and the Bay-side beaches. To protect visitors and shore birds, dogs are NOT allowed on Sandy Hook's ocean-side beaches. . . . . #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #goparks #optoutside #americasbestidea #nationalparks #usinterior #nps #forthancock #sandyhooknj #nationalparkservice #gatewaynps #gatewaynra #just_newjersey #barkranger #beachdog #bayside #petfriendly
When I heard there were orchards @capitolreefnps I knew we had to go sample some fruit straight from the trees. What I didn’t expect was how much the Junior Rangers would love it, that we would visit the orchard three times in two days, and that one really can eat her body weight in apricots. #capitolreefnationalpark #nationalparkgeek #nps #findyourpark #encuentratuparque #orchards #adventure #explore #utah #trees #nature #outdoors #nikon
The Bat Flight Program start time has changed to 7:30 pm. Join a ranger at the Bat Flight Amphitheater to learn about the unique life of the Brazilian free-tailed bats that emerge from Carlsbad Cavern from spring into fall. Note that all electronic devices, including cell phones, tablets, and still and video cameras, are prohibited at the program and vicinity, except in the parking lot.

I kinda cheated death today, but I also officially hiked Mt Whitney in one day! My first 14er 😭 #outdoorlos
Establishing early connections to the Forest is critical to empowering the next generation of advocates and stewards. We had a great time with students from Oxnard last week teaching them about wildlife, native plants, and leave no trace principles.
Many visitors ask about the best places to access the wetland system west of the dunefield. Adjacent to the national park, San Luis Lakes State Wildlife Area protects a large portion of these wetlands, now open again after an annual closure for bird nesting season. Drive 15 minutes west of the visitor center on County Lane 6N, park at a trailhead on the north side of the large lake, then hike to smaller wetlands where many shore birds nest during summer months. In a dry year, these wetlands provide an oasis for wildlife and people!

Visitors to Carlsbad Caverns National Park often marvel at the mass exodus of Brazilian free-tailed bats from Carlsbad Cavern each evening. With long, narrow wings, these creatures of the night are built for speed and distance, and in a single night they can fly close to 70 miles (113 km) round trip in search of food and water. But what happens when the cover of darkness fades and dawn’s light appears on the horizon? It is something you can hear before you can see. It’s a sound like ripping plastic as the bats whiz by, free-falling into the cavern to find shelter once again. Join us on Saturday, July 21 to greet the dawn and thousands of Brazilian free-tailed bats as they return home. We will meet in the Bat Flight Amphitheater at 5:30 am. Bat-related activities will continue throughout the day. A schedule of the day’s activities is available at http://go.nps.gov/b3cy16.

We have been spotting lovely sagebrush mariposa lilies in the park now the last couple weeks! They do not require a great deal of water and like dry and sandy (often volcanic!) soils.

There are thousands of trails across America, and over 12,000 miles of rivers, all protected thanks to the National Trails System Act and the National Wild & Scenic Rivers Act. This year, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of these acts, the National Park Foundation (@goparks ) is supporting awesome projects across the country that benefit these trails and rivers. The North Country Trail Association is one of the grantees! Watch for more news coming soon about where you can find this project in action on the North Country Trail. #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #FindYourWay #WeAreParks #northcountrytrail #ncta
Proud ELK Family moment! Yesica Chavez, ELK Student Coordinator and Urban Ranger Alum, was recently featured alongside other ladies of Latino Outdoors in TIME Magazine! The article is called, “‘It's Culture for Us.’ Camping in Colorado With the Women of Latino Outdoors,” and showcases how 11 Latinas have come together as Colorado leaders for Latino Outdoors, a national organization aimed at diversifying the outdoors. In the article, Yesica says, “We look out for one another…and we talk about things that we wouldn’t talk about with other people.” 〰 We are incredibly proud of the work Yesica has done and continues to do for equity in the outdoors and beyond. Yesica is also a Children and Nature Network leader, student at the University of Colorado – Denver, and is currently serving as the 2018 Youth Ambassador for the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Industry Office. AMAZING work, Yesi! ~full article link in bio~ photo: Catherine Hyland for TIME

Did you know that Carlsbad Caverns has a rookery?! A rookery is the name for a grouping of bird's nests. In Lower Cave, which is under the Big Room, you can see a different type of rookery, a cave pearl rookery. This rookery is rare because it has one of the largest concentration of cave pearls on Earth. Cave pearls are a rare formation that don't attach to the ground! They form when there is water moving too fast for a stalagmite to form. The process is similar to the way mollusk pearls are formed. First a small piece of matter (i.e. sand) becomes coated in calcite. Once this has occurred, the matter is rotated through the water until it is evenly coated. Over time, the layers grow to make the pearls bigger. At one point in time, visitors to the cave would take the pearls home as a souvenir. However, we have been able to recover a lot of these pearls. A big thanks to the volunteers who have restored the rookery by using historical photos and hand placing the pearls back. Peter Jones #FindYourPark #NationalPark #EncuentraTuParque #CarlsbadCaverns

Do you have a word that you try not to say? The word I try really hard not to say is “busy.” I hate that everyone is busy and when you ask someone, “How are you?” The answer is usually, “I’m so busy.” I find it annoying, but then again guess what?! I’m guilty of it too. I’m tired of being busy and saying I’m busy. Don’t get me wrong, I feel blessed that I have lots of work, but at the same time I don’t want it to consume me. I so needed a getaway and nature always heals me!! Especially, bodies of water — there’s something about the sound of water that helps quiet my mind and is so relaxing. What nature sound calms your “busy” mind? . . #findyourpark #encuentratuparque
Yellowstone National Park is a magical place! Yesterday we saw elk, bison, and black bears. Can you spot all the animals in these photos and videos?? Yellowstone National Park is home to more wild animals than almost anywhere else in the U.S., but it is not a zoo. Visitors are likely to see a number of animals in Yellowstone freely roaming the landscape in their natural habitat. Animals you might see include grizzly bears, gray wolves, the world's largest wild bison herd, bald and golden eagles, moose, and more. . . #wyoming #yellowstonenationalpark #yellowstonepledge #elk #blackbear #bison #buffalo #bearcub #findyourpark #encuentratuparque
