Here comes the Sun! Fourteen months from today, NASA plans to launch a spacecraft into our bright star. How cool is that? 🛰➡🌞 • On July 31, 2018, a 20-day launch window opens for the Parker Solar Probe, a mission advertised as humanity's first visit to a star. The spacecraft will lap the Sun 24 times as it helps scientists unravel longstanding questions about what goes on inside our star's outer atmosphere, a region called the corona extending millions of kilometers into space. To do so, Parker Solar Probe will dive through the corona itself, eventually buzzing the Sun's surface by 5.9 million kilometers. That's just an eighth of the distance between the Sun and Mercury at the planet's closest approach. • Pictured: Sun Storms in Extreme Ultraviolet NASA / GSFC / AIA, EVE, HMI

A skimmer out looking for breakfast along the shoreline at Padre Island National Seashore. How many of you Travelers are birders or enjoy bird photography? The National Parks Traveler published a story today about the plight of condor recovery due to lead shot poisoning these amazing birds.

Another from Friday's hike. Multiple waterfalls along this 5.2 mile loop with 1,200 feet of elevation gain. Can't wait to go back after some more rain! #donnercreek #mtdiablostatepark #chasingwaterfalls #castateparks

Art is everywhere, just need to know where to look. At Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona, you not only get spectacular views, but can also see Native American art preserved in buildings like the Desert View Watchtower on the South Rim. Can you spot the Dreamcatcher? How about the Eagle? . ⏩⏪⏩⏪⏩⏪⏩⏪⏩⏪ . . #grandcanyon #arizona #nationalpark #nps #goparks #nativeamerican #art #wallart #usa #canada #europe #greece #athens #thessaloniki #africa #asia #india #china #eagle #dreamcatcher #walltraveled
Excited for our first big snow since moving. Tomorrow we’ll be wishing we are these Ventura sea lions basking in the sun.

#Repost @micheleburner ・・・ #flashback to Death Valley just under a year ago. We were waiting for first light at Zabriskie Point. I love watching other photographers get into their groove. Some are mellow and go with a feeling and others are calculating and precise. Most days I feel like I'm somewhere in between. Sometimes I set the camera down and let my husband hold me and take in the view just for us. Some memories are only supposed to exist when you close your eyes. @towkster70 Can't decide if I like sunrise or sunset better in Death Valley NP... guess we have to go again so I can figure that out. #peoplealongtheway * * * #picsbymichele #nps102 #photographer #deathvalley #zabriskiepoint #natgeotravel #photoarena_nature #wildcalifornia #goparks #visitcalifornia #bns_nature #californiathroughmylens #californiacaptures #capturelandscapes #landscape #createscenery #bns_landscape #protectingparks #the59parks #landscape_captures #hikeDeathValley #canonbringit @deathvalleynationalpark #travelgram #moodygrams #blackandwhite #bwphotography
#Repost @gollyghollyp ・・・ I want you all to know that the path I was on to get this photo was closed for construction purposes and I *may have* trespassed because I knew I wanted this photo.

The route to Clements Mountain includes trail hiking, off trail scrambling, a sweet climbers trail, the north side traverse that scares some people and then a glorious walk to the summit. This photo by @glaciercountry features a group that just passed the north side traverse. Great shot Chris and thanks for the #visitglacier tag.
Caught the sunset from Moro Rock. Perfect way to end the day 🌄

The desert is calling and I... just kidding. I’m driving to Austin tonight to camp with the sole intention of going to the third largest draft house in the state. Because beer 🍻

I took a small mental break from IG the last two weeks. Instead of being glued to my phone, I decided to be fully engaged in the real world. For the first time in a while, I didn't feel obligated to take any IG stories at any parties. I didn't feel obligated to check my phone while I was painting my rooms. I felt free for a moment. . I began to use IG to seek for freedom and more creativity a part from the real world. At the end of the day, I don't want to feel that I'm tied to this app that I'm no longer free. .

Mama grizzly and some fat yearlings, reminding me who's the boss at Denali.
What is all this stuff? ❄️
This is a slot canyon somewhere in Utah. The water was 35 degrees so we had to use wetsuits to wade through this stream. I rented size 9.5 boots and forgot to size up to make room for the 5mm neoprene socks. My feet were scrunched together for 15 miles of hiking through knee to waist deep water, resulting in blistered and painful feet. I’m walking on my heels in the airport looking like a penguin in order to keep the pressure off of my toes. But the pictures were worth it!! I think? . . . . . #exploremore #utahphotographer #ignewengland #seascape #zionnationalpark #zionoutfitter #seascapes #goatworthy #igersmaine #landscape_capture #naturalnewengland #nationalparks #wearestillwild #maineisgorgeous #everytrailconnects #maine #exploremaine #mainething #naturalnewengland #createscenery #goparks #briskoutdoors #nationalparkgeek #lovemaine #visitmaine #freshairandfreedom #inthewoods #zionoutfitters #campingcollective #scenesofnewengland @naturalnewengland @exploremaine
I am convinced now that the desert has no heart, that it presents a riddle which has no answer, and that the riddle itself is an illusion created by some limitation or exaggeration of the displaced human consciousness.
