Earth Day passed yesterday without a dispatch from here, but as a wise person once said, every day is Earth day. With our arrogance to subjugate, to preach to indigenous populations around the world over centuries about what is good for them, how they should act, to shut up and obey, to be grateful, the time has come to listen. To listen to what the Nyoongar family in Western Australia's south west have always known about the soil. To listen to the few surviving Acoma Pueblo about water conservation. To listen to the Bayei in Botswana's Okavango Delta about fish stocks. To listen to the Inuit about over hunting. We cannot keep taking without giving back. To re-visit the famous Cree prophecy. β€œWhen all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.” Edward S. Curtis captured this iconic image - At the Old Well, Acoma - in 1904. (New Mexico) Curtis, as I've posted before, is a kind of personal spirit guide, not just for photography, but for his life's mission to preserve the legacy of North America's Indian tribes, as he watched them crumbling before his eyes. As another great Indian proverb says. β€œTreat the earth well, it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children.” Every day is indeed Earth day. #earthday #edwardscurtis #acomapueblo #acoma #indigenous @aboriginal.australia.official #nyoongar #country #land #spirit #environment #protection #conservation @grandcanyonnps #nationalparkservice @newmexicotrue @westernaustralia
Happy National Park week from my favorite National Seashore πŸšπŸŒ²βœ¨πŸ’•
🌏Happy Earth Day🌎& National Park Week! . . Are you going to be visiting any national parks this week? We sadly can’t and I have to say we have been missing our parks as we haven’t been to any all year which is a record for us. I’m trying to squeeze in few at the end of summer but we have a busy travel season coming up. . . . ➑️➑️QUESTION: Which National Park is on the top of your bucket list? Ours is Yellowstone! Cian is dying to go, but something always stands in the way.. maybe in August! . . . #nationalparkweek #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #findyourpark #grandcanyon #hikingwithkids @visitarizona @visitarizona #arizona_landscapes #takeyourkidseverywhere #trekarooing #familytrails #familyjaunts #outdoorfamilies #ciantravels #visitarizona #earthday2018 #landscape_lover #travelwithkids #justthetwoofus #familytravel #kidfriendly
Earth day well spent hiking up to the chimney tops. Unreal seeing the damage the fires have caused but how the surrounding area has managed to grow despite it is beautiful. The area directly in front of me was burnt so bad I was told by a ranger it may never recover. Pictures don’t do this view justice πŸŒŽπŸŒ²β›° #hiking #chimneytops #greatsmokymountains #tennessee #nationalparkservice #earthday #girlsthathike #smokies #gopro #goprohero4

Earth Day isn't just a reminder to recycle your single use plastics. It's a reminder that we are part of nature and not separate from it. Let's respect our mother Earth, our fellow critters, and our place in the ecosystem. This is everyone's home. #earthday #nationalparkservice #nps #altnps #resist #kingscanyonnationalpark #sierranevada #california #sequoias #amonggiants #savethetrees #speakforthetrees #optoutside #goatworthy #adventureispossible

Today’s off-roading involved a nice ford. Utah continues to surprise with awesome new adventures. πŸœπŸš™ @natalie.pozzett filmed me during the epic crossing
#earthday #nationalparkweek Go visit our parks! We are lucky to have access to such breathtaking scenery and wildlife. Preserve it and keep it precious. #brycecanyon #utah #optoutside #nationalparkservice #nature #naturephotography #hiking #trails #hoodoos
Only a few more sunsets in Texas and then its off to the Black Hills of South Dakota. #amistad #volunteer #nationalparkservice
Happy Earth Day, friends! This year's theme: End Plastic Pollution. There are many ways we can help reduce our plastic consumption. Here are some simple solutions we can incorporate into our everyday life : 1) Invest in a reusable water bottle / coffee mug. 2) Avoid plastic straws and cutlery. 3) Bring a canvas bag with you when you shop. 4) Carry reusable containers for your food vs sandwich bags. 5) Stop chewing gum. And of course, don't be a litter bug! πŸŒŽπŸ’šπŸ’™ #STMBLWDS . . . #happyearthday #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #california #caligirl #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #thediscoverer #travelogue #travelphotography #adventureland #aroundtheworld #keepitwild #dancer #passionpassport #visualscollective #exploreandtraverse #TheModernTraveler #liveauthentic #thevisualvogue #darlingescapes #wildernessculture #travelislife #collectivelycreate #outside_project #desertlife #californiathroughmylens #wildernessbabes #radgirlslife

Dear Earth, i love you 🌎
Yesterday was #jrrangerday but we were busy playing in waterfalls we missed it ! The Junior Ranger program is one of our favorites !! #adventureswithaddi #nationalparkweek #juniorranger #findyourpark #grandcanyon #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice
Miss you the minute I leave🌡🏜
Look yonder! Some say the world gets smaller the more you travel, but for me, it feels even more expansive. Also, retirement goals in frame #2 : NPS ranger heading out into the desert. Also, Happy REAL Earth Day.

Happy Earth Day! Seemed like an appropriate time to share my latest music video ("Metamorphosis") filmed in Utah and Arizona in 4K. You can view it on my website: www.thetravelingguitarist.com. We all have to respect our planet by doing our part to protect it! #happyearthday #earthday Enjoy! :) #visitutah #utah #utahphotographer #archesnationalpark #delicatearch #werutah #iloveutah #utahunique #utahphotography #beautahful #igsouthwest #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #exploreutah #visualsoflife #visualsofearth #exploretocreate #welltravelled #utahgram #beautifuldestinations #adventuretime #earthpix #travelgram #travelstoke #nps #nationalparkservice #guitar #musicvideo

Surreal beauty in Rocky Mountain National Park. #nationalparkservice #america #hiking
I love bringing my two dogs along on camping trips, but because they can’t be trusted off leash I always bring a wire pen along. It lets them continue to be part of the action while leaving me free to set up camp, cook dinner, etc. . . . . . . . #wayfarecollective #nikon #nikonphotography #nikonusa #nikond500 #nikonnofilter #utahisrad #werutah #beautahful #utahgram #exploretocreate #capitolreef #findyourpark #optoutside #goatworthy #capitolgorge #utahhiking #utahphotographer #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #nationalparkgeek #carcamping #utahnationalparks #campingwithdogs #hikingwithdogs #greyhoundsofinstagram #adoptdontshop #nationalparkpaws
A happy Earth Day throwback! Protect our parks!
a little throw back of my mountain baby in honor of national park week and earth day! nothing makes me happier than being able to explore all the corners of this planet with my scurvy crew. and i’m hopeful for many, many more years of wandering earth with them by my side. 🌿
I went to edit a photo to make a post about Earth Day, only to realize my sensor was SO dirty during the 8,800 mile road trip I drove with @dylpicklelemonade last summer. Even with the sensor spots, the mountain range in Grand Teton is beautiful. Places like these only further our love of Mother Earth. If you haven’t been, I highly suggest visiting Grand Teton and Yellowstone. It is worth dealing with crazy crowds. This magical place is on our list of places to come back and spend more time in.
Our beautiful planet. 😊🌎❀ #earthday #earthdayeveryday #diadelatierra Regrann from @nationalparkservice - Happy #EarthDay ! Did you visit a national park?

"We are spiritual wanderers, we are souls set adrift upon this earthly plain. We are children of a higher being, trying to surpass this worldly pain. We are blind to existence, to the universe beyond our human race. We are merely tiny fragments fading quickly within time and space. Life is far more than what our simple minds perceive. Life is far more for those whom have awoken, for those who truly believe."

Obsessed with Maine’s lighthouses and shorelines 😍 since Andrew and I started dating (and even more so since we’ve been married), I’ve learned that I’m a beach girl. I could literally sit for hours and just listen to the waves crash on the beach. But I’m not the SoCal or Florida kinda of beach girl; I’m talking rugged, rocky shoreline kind of beach girl. So our time in rocky Acadia National Park was πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

I try to educate the public with something earth science related on earth day every year. However, as an academically trained ecologist; I just want to give a shout out to the real heroes who are out there restoring the environment from disturbance, and putting in hard physical labor on the field. ✊🏽 #earthday2018 #biking #trailbiking #mountrainier #mountrainiernps #mountrainiernationalpark #mrnp #nps #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #upperleftusa #explorepnw #explorewa #explorewashington #wildernessculture #neverstopexploring #cascadiaexplored #whereinwasington
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Yesterday, I saw nearly a thousand people come by different booths and tables at @yosemitenps to learn about sustainability, community partnerships, and opportunities to be green in and outside the park. My time here has only increased my belief in protecting spaces as beautiful as these waterfalls, canyons, valleys, mountains, and everything in between. 🏞 - I know I say this each year, but #EarthDay is the β€œholiday” we should celebrate and embrace every day. Marvel at the natural wonders around you, appreciate the air you breathe, strive to leave no trace as you engage in activities outdoors, and support organizations across the 🌎 whose mission is to preserve, conserve, and keep our planet thriving for current and future populations.
πŸ¬πŸΌπŸ—»πŸŒ…Are wars.. anything but the means whereby a nation's problems are set, where creation is stimulated / there you have adventure. But there is no adventure in heads-or-tails, in betting that the toss will come out of life or death. War is not an adventure. It is a disease. It is like typhus.

After the city was conquered, the Old Barracks became a military hospital for the remainder of the war, under the direction of Dr. Bodo Otto, who carried out the largest smallpox inoculation campaign in history. Otto infected over ten thousand soldiers with a live virus taken from patients with the weakest of the four forms of smallpoxβ€”losing only 1% of his patients to the diseaseβ€”decades before Edward Jenner developed vaccination. @oldbarracksmuseum #childhoodunplugged #historybuff #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #juniorranger #childhoodunplugged #nationalparkfamily #nptc #nps #optoutside #goparks #nationalparks #outdoorfamilies #buddybison #usinterior #publiclands #nationalparkservice -#raiseawildchild @passporttonationalparks @nationalparkservice @nationalparktrust #njspots
