Prior to visiting #LavaBeds #NationalMonument (@lavabedsnps ) on Friday I stopped at the #Tulelake Unit of #WWIIValorInThePacific National Monument (@wwiivalornps ). Originally built as a #CivilianConservationCorps Camp, #CampTulelake during #WWII was used to both detain #JapaneseAmericans and house #Italian & #German #POWs . #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #NPS101 #Parks101 #EveryKidInAPark #ParkChat #OptOutside
Golden hours are for the good boys, and by good boys I mean my nikon and drone.
These churches you’ll find all over Iceland reminding you to live your life.
Behind these walls there is magic. Outside of these walls there is magic. #deplarfarm #deplar

"That which submits rules. The willow submits to the wind and prospers until one day it is many willows - a wall against the wind. This is the willow's purpose".

But hello!
I'll never grow tired of Joshua Tree. This place has my heart ❤ although i'm dying to visit a new national park 😬 do you ever get that feeling deep inside? Am I the only one? Hello?
When surrounded by beauty in Iceland, just do surrender.
Glacier has no shortage of jaw-dropping views! John Muir called if “the best care-killing scenery on the continent.” Together with Waterton Lakes National Park, they make up over 1,800 square miles of glaciers, waterfalls, mountains, and 762 lakes! People have lived and visited in this land for over 10,000 years hunting bison, fishing in the streams, and climbing the mountains. The Blackfeet controlled this land during the 18th and much of the 19th century, along with the Salish, Pend d’Oreille, and Kootnei. The park was established in 1910. _____ 📸: Dave Sizer #seekmorewilderness _____
The 40 mile road preceding the Devils Tower gives you brief views, but you can't appreciate it's size. This park has been on my bucket list for about 6 years and the wait was worth it.
We were able to visit the MLK birthplace and the Center for Nonviolent Social Change today. Extremely moving and eye opening experience. We learned so much #nps101 #findyourpark #mlk50 #atlanta
"The struggle between life elements is the struggle for the free energy of a system." I've had the pleasure of visiting southern Utah and #zionnationalpark in four seasons now, and even in the 105 degree summer life is abundant. . . . #zion #beehivebros #nps101
Another successful #cubscout Belt Loopalooza comes to a close. We thank the @boyscoutsofamerica for all of the support and publicity. And, our #npsvolunteers did a fantastic job! See ya in 2019! #JewelCave #JECA #nationalparkservice #midwestnps #FindYourPark #nps101 #parks101 #boyscouts #boyscoutsofamerica #scoutranger
Savage.
When in Iceland it’s both easy and very likely to see Trolls and Gryla is the most horrid of them all. She was showing herself on the stone wall 120 meters down of the volcano making us go straight up again.
Let’s go and explore!
The feeling when you find an umbrella before the rain starts.
I just can't control this fire burning from within.
“After 25 years and many incarnations, the Soulard Blues Band - arguably the hardest working band in town - still tears up the town one show at a time.” -Where Magazine 🎼🥁🎷 A free concert is a great way to enjoy the summer! On Thursday, August 16th, pack a blanket or lawn chair and walk, ride, or drive to Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site for live music featuring the Soulard Blues Band. 7:00 - 8:00 pm.

Meet More, an arctic fox only three months old being left behind by his family. He is taken care of by the sweet folks at Thrihnukagigur Volcano until he goes back into the wilderness again when ready.
On our most recent visit to Joshua Tree National Park, we saw so much wildlife on the Barker Dam Trail, Hidden Valley Picnic Area🍴, and Jumbo Rocks. We saw squirrels🐿, chipmunks, bunnies🐇, bluejays, lizards, raven, a scorpion🦂 at the campsite, and we heard a pack of coyotes🐺 howling at dusk and dawn.

What do you do if you are in a brand new house, by yourself, in a brand new city, with nowhere to be for a full week, and can’t sleep at 4:00 A.M.? If you’re me, you throw all your gear on the floor for a picture and then head to Yosemite. . . #loadout #baseweight #ultralight #glacierpoint #halfdome #yosemitefalls #johnmuir #tourist #yosemite #nps101 #hiking #getoutside #optoutside #wander #thisismyview #california #calilife #norcal #sierras #sierranevada #outdoorphotography #photooftheday

Bears enjoy going on long walks in the meadows 🌸🍄🌿 (July 17, 2018 in this photo a mother bear and her cub trek along the open meadows of St Mary, Glacier NP) #findyourpark #glaciernps #glaciernationalpark
The coveted Yosemite Junior Ranger Patch! This Junior Ranger program cost $3 but you do get the booklet, badge, patch, a biodegradable trash bag and glove to help pic up trash while you hike. I found a pair of fairly nice headphones. I turned them into the Ranger Station for lost and found. ##### #yosemitenationalpark #yosemite #National parks #nationalparkgeek #nps #nps101 #findyourpark #notsojuniorrangers

Thanks again to the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater for another great #skulls and #tracks patio talk. The kids LOVED making their own tracks, and Dr. Clokey captivated everyone with some #wildlife history. #JewelCave #JECA #FindYourPark #nps101 #parks101 #nationalparkservice #midwestnps #southdakota #blackhills #hifromsd
The Tetons are Picture Perfect 🏔
Muir Woods is a dream, and got to share my first visit with @sothearyv. Didn't see any ewoks though. 😜

Its that special something, you know you just can't miss.
This sunset was so beautiful. There were lots of people there to capture it. I love the beauty of the sunset at Joshua Tree. Lets try to make our national parks a better place so we can keep it alive.
From a couple weeks ago
“The battlefield is a scene of constant chaos. The winner will be the one who controls that chaos, both his own and the enemies.” - Napoleon Bonaparte The Great Plains Skink (Plestiodon obsoletus) occurs throughout most of the Great Plains of the USA, and from South Dakota, southeastern Colorado, Nebraska, Oklahoma, most of New Mexico and central Arizona southward to northeastern Sonora and Chihuahua in Mexico. Typically found in rugged terrain (often along streams or near springs and seeps with sandy to gravelly soils) and under large rocks, logs, or other surface debris, this lizard is primarily diurnal and an accomplished burrower. Giant desert centipedes (Scolopendra heros) are found in the American Southwest, parts of the South and Midwest, and northern Mexico. Their preferred habitat is primarily protected areas under stones, rotted logs, leaves or bark and where there is suitable moisture. During the hot, drier summer months, these centipedes are sometimes seen inside structures (like our visitor center!) as they are seeking a more hospitable habitat. This centipede has 20 pairs of yellow legs, while the last pair of legs are black and longer than the others; this bright coloration is very effective at warning a potential predator of the dangers that may ensue when dealing with this centipede. Primarily a predator that consumes insects and other arthropods, giant desert centipedes seize their prey using the first pair of legs as venom is injected through the poison claws at the end of the legs to stun or kill. @naturenps @nationalparkservice @usinterior #nationalpark #encuentratuparque #nps101 #findyourpark 📷@noahstalcup
There’s something about the quietness and stillness of this rainforest that is soothing to the soul and a little scary at the same time. I’m the kind of person that likes the energy I get from visiting a large city. But this place...a different kind of rush. I want to go back to figure out what it is exactly. Maybe one or two more times...maybe more.
