At Custer State Park in South Dakota, while driving along the Wildlife Loop, one of the main highlights is seeing bison along the road.  Be sure to not approach the bison, since they are wild animals, and also the largest mammal in North America.  A male can get up to 2000 lbs and stand 6 ft. tall.  While the calves may not look as intimidating, they are still large mammals, weighing 30-70 lbs at birth. . . . . . #southdakota  #sd #custerstatepark #buffalo #bison #roadtrip #nationaldestinations #nps101 #nationalparkgeek #optoutside #getoutside #findyourpark #sharetheexperience #adventure #outdoors #instadaily #natgeo #nationalgeographic #landscapephotography #landscapelover #discoverearth  #outside_project #roamearth #BDAmerica #MNTfolk   #jnaphotos #takemoreadventures #rei1440project

It was good to see fellow @nationalparkservice Volunteer & @nationalparkgeek Ambassador Linda M (@thebucketlisttraveler ) during yesterday's #JohnMuir Birthday/#EarthDay Celebration at @johnmuirnps. I'd like to thank her again for the #NationalParkGeek lapel pin, it'll go well with the rest of my collection. #FindYourPark #NationalParkWeek #EncuentraTuParque #NPS101 #Parks101
These trees were here long before we were, and if we are adequate stewards of the earth, will hopefully be here long after we're gone. #earthday
8:00am this morning I looked out the window, and realized I couldn't let such a beautiful day go to waste. Moosilauke without a cloud in the sky was the perfect trip! . . . . . . . . . . . #mtMoosilauke #Moosilauke #bluebirdskies #notacloudtobeseen #getabovetreeline #snowshoeing #hikethewhites #whitemountains #hikenh #NPS101 #findyourpark #getoutside #beanoutsider #roamtheplanet #whitewalkerwalks
Owls Head kicked my ass yesterday! Lots of slipping and sliding for 17 miles, but we managed to bag the peak, and make it back to the car before sunset. . . . . . .. . . . . #owlshead #bushwhacking #snowshoeing #hikethewhites #whitemountains #hikenh #NPS101 #findyourpark #getoutside #beanoutsider #roamtheplanet #whitewalkerwalks
Gotta love nature's diversity. Happy Earth Day!

Grand View Point – three views. On this Earth Day 2018 I revisit one of the most beautiful national parks in our nation: @CanyonlandsNPS. Established President Lyndon B. Johnson on September 12, 1964, the park covers 337,598 acres and offers breathtaking views of canyons and buttes carved by the Colorado River and its tributaries. For camera information and the story behind these photos, please visit my blog, egidio.photography. . . . . . #brazilianeyes #ExploreMore #FindYourPark #GetOutside #GoParks #greatoutdoors #IHeartParks #nationalpark #NationalParkFoundation #NationalParks #NationalParkService #NeverStopExploring #npca #npcapics #NPF #NPS #NPS101 #OptOutside #ourparks #ourpubliclands #Parks101 #parkstagram #PledgeToProtect #protectingparks #RockthePark #ThoseParkGuys #Travel #usinterior #Wanderlust #canyonlandsnps
Last month while visiting Guadeloupe Mountains NP I pulled over to take a picture. When I looked down I noticed the bushes were filled with trash. I took a few minutes to pick up what was around me - enough to fill an entire trash bag (2nd pic). While this made me extremely sad/angry, I felt better knowing there was something I could do about it. So in honor of Earth Day and National Park Week, I decided to spend the weekend picking up trash from my local parks, beaches, and road sides... 21 bags of trash later (11 of those filled with just plastic) became an eye opener to just how much litter really pollutes our beautiful land. If I could make this much of a difference in two days, image what a whole community could do. #earthday #nps #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkweek
Our planet deserves to be celebrated everyday 🌎💚
Happy #EarthDay 🌎 also it’s the start of #nationalparkweek ✌🏼 so I’m throwing it back this Sunday to one of my favorite #nationalparks ♥️ Let’s be responsible lovers of nature and tread lightly! Exploring this world is a great privilege that we all have so let’s respect #mothernature | 📍Canyonlands National Park, UT (2016)
Gorgeous day in the #blackhills . Sure, yard work needs to be done ... but, the #outdoors cleanses the mind and re-energizes the body. Plus, it is #nationalparkweek ... #getoutside and #FindYourPark ! #nationalparkservice #midwestnps #nationalmonument #nps101 #parks101 #outside #getoutsidemore #getoutdoors #forest #pineforest #southdakota #hifromsd
Happy Earth Day to all! Let us remember today and everyday that we must share this dwindling planet with one another, as well as our fellow animals and plants. Let us do all we can to preserve it for future generations and for the sake of those endangered. This is a California Condor I captured over the Grand Canyon - once their population was as low as 22, is now nearly 500 thanks to reintroduction in the Grand Canyon.

Old man of the ocean. This was taken at Little Hunter's Beach the day after the storm blew through. The waves were still pretty epic, and I found this spot at Little Hunter's Beach that was shooting waves at least 30 feet above the water's surface. I thought this rock looked like some sort of creepy face, so I lined it up and waited for a big wave to come shooting up behind it to give it some hair. This wave ended up soaking the rock (and nearly got me), so I was glad I got some pictures before it got darkened by water. I did two black and white conversions for this image then blended them in Photoshop, one with a blue filter to darken the orange rocks around the face, and another with a red filter to make the wave pop against the clear blue sky. . . #acadianationalpark #acadia #mainecoast #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #exploremaine #maineisgorgeous #capturemaine #mainething #nationalparklife #igerslandscapes #ig_naturelovers #nature_of_our_world #findyourpark #usparksandmonuments #np10k #acadianps #parks101 #nps101 #wilderness #worldtravelscapes #roamtheplanet #earthofficial #blackandwhitelandscape

Believe it or not, this photo looked basically like this before I converted it to black and white. At the beginning of the week I went down to Acadia for another stormy day of surf, and towards the end of the day it got really gloomy and wet. This was one of the last photos I took before going home to dry out and warm up. This might not be a popular image because it's dark, moody, and there's nothing really going on in the sky, but I like the simplicity of it. . . #acadianationalpark #acadia #mainecoast #nationalparks #nationalparkgeek #exploremaine #maineisgorgeous #capturemaine #mainething #nationalparklife #igerslandscapes #ig_naturelovers #nature_of_our_world #findyourpark #usparksandmonuments #np10k #acadianps #parks101 #nps101 #wilderness #longexposure #long_exposure #longexposure_shots #longexposurephotography #worldtravelscapes #roamtheplanet #earthofficial
Good morning from Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park. Met some friends whose camouflage was on point, 👌🏼 they just forgot how big they were. 🤓

Monument to the north and the south, placed by the veterans of the 128th New York Volunteer Regiment, dedicated October 15, 1907. This monument is located at Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park in #Virginia . This park was authorized on December 19, 2002 to protect several historically significant locations in the Shenandoah Valley of Northern Virginia, notably the site of the American Civil War Battle of Cedar Creek and the Belle Grove Plantation. The Battle of Cedar Creek was fought October 19, 1864 and resulted in a Union victory. The authorized boundary of this park covers over 3,700 acres but much of the land is privately owned. This park is a partnership park, with much of the land owned by nonprofit preservation groups, including the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Shenandoah Valley Battlefield Foundation, Belle Grove Plantation, and the Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation. Approximately 1,500 acres are owned by the park's partners. The @nationalparkservice currently owns about 90 acres of land at the park. #va #vahistory #SpreadTheHistory #historygirl #nps #nps101 #goparks #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #goparks #americanhistory #nationalparkgeek #travelblog #travelblogger #explore #blog #blogger #explorevirginia #FindYourPark #optoutside #cedarcreek #bellegrove #nationalhistoricalpark #civilwar #battleofcedarcreek #battlefield #battle #landscape

You can’t hide from this kind of beauty!
Linda Falls in Cuyahoga Valley National Park last Sunday was worth the hike in the pouring rain even though the mud and swollen stream made it impossible for me to get a better angle on the picture than this #waterfallwednesday #waterfall #cvnp #cvnpyes #cvnptreasures #cuyahogavalleynp #cuyahogavalleynps #cuyahogavalleynationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalparksmagazine #sharetheexperience #findyourpark #fypyes #nofilter #goparks #nps #nps101
