NATIONAL PARK WEEK 📍Glacier National Park, Montana. You must drive the Going-to-the-Sun Road while visiting this park, stopping at different hikes or lookouts along the way. It is spectacular! There are several ways to see it. 1) Drive your own small vehicle (no RV’s over 23 feet) or 2) take the free park shuttles, which is what we did, or 3) hire a tour car/bus. 🏞 This hike is the Hidden Overlook Trail at Logan’s Pass in July. 🏞 I love National Parks because... the park service maintains the wilderness in its raw form so we can appreciate these lands as they have always been. No development. No noise and obstructions. No bothering the animals. Truly the National Parks are such a gift. Glacier National Park affords a pic everywhere you look. Such beauty! Have you visited? . . . . . . #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkweek #nationalparklife #nationalparkservice #glaciernationalpark #glaciernps #loganspass #goingtothesunroad #visitmontana #visittheusa #nps #findyourpark #optoutdoors #nationalparks #nationalparksusa #outdoorstravel #outdoorenthusiast #outdoorfamily #roadtripusa #summertrips #outdoorlove #hikes #hikeit #hikeitout #alltrails

The annual celebration of #NationalParkWeek commenced yesterday April 20th, 2019 - and how lovely it’s already turning out to be!! 😊 The warming sun and smiling spring flowers offer such splendor this time of year 😍 We invite you to #FindYourPark at C&O Canal this week somewhere along the 184.5 miles of towpath. The historic C&O Canal begins in Georgetown, D.C., and continues in rough parallel with the Potomac River through Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, and Allegany Counties in Maryland. The western terminus - or endpoint - of the canal, pictured here, is in Cumberland, MD. This gorgeous skyline photo has been shared with us by @bradbolyard. Thank you so much for this capture, Brad, and happy trails everyone!! 👟🚴‍♀️🌄 at Cumberland, Maryland

Joshua Tree has some crazy cool looking trees. Today though is more than about scenery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, 'Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree.'" That tree/cross was Jesus way of showing us just how much He loves us. (John 3:16) He held nothing back! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Then, 3 days later, He walked out of that tomb!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Easter. Thank you Jesus! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ at Joshua Tree National Park

Milky way in Death Valley, California Death Valley in summer is hot. Really hot! The only place that I was told would provide some sleep-temperature relief was Emigrant camp ground in the mountains, where the temperature would drop from 49'c to a cool 15'c overnight. It was worth the drive! It is also one of the 'dark sky' parks, given that there is no electricity anywhere near it. It is pitch dark, until you look up. The sky is alight with stars, in every direction. This was my first attempt at a milky way shot. I had no idea what I was doing, and I did pretty much everything wrong: my tripod wasn't very sturdy, I used the wrong aperture, I wasn't pointed in the proper direction, I pushed my ISO higher than my little 650D can handle, I used too long a shutter speed and I wasn't properly focused. The only good thing was that the moon wasn't around - and no, I didn't plan it that way. So all in all, I'm pretty impressed that I managed to get what I did! #milkyway #stars #nightskyphotography #nightsky #astrophotography #darksky #deathvalley #camping #lookup #looktothesky #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #california #roadtrip #travel #explore #experience #naturalbeauty #canonphotography #canoncollective #seethroughmyeyes #photography #travelusa #naturephotography #nature_shotz #natureshots #nature #wilderness at Death Valley National Park

Happy National Parks Week. In addition to preserving the natural beauty of our country, the National Park Service cares for its man-made wonders as well. The Statue of Liberty is one of the best known and most inspiring examples of this. Be sure to visit Ellis Island as well to experience great exhibits and learn fascinating history. . . . . . . . #familytravel #familythattravels #familyadventures #statueofliberty #libertyisland #nationalparkservice #nationalparkgeek #nationalparksweek #nationalmonument #bucketlistadventures #letsgoeverywhere #letsgoplaces #vacation #beautifulsights #ladyliberty at Statue of Liberty National Monument

Here is a panoramic picture from the amazing Grand Canyon from our trip last year. This place is absolutely beautiful and is hard to capture the scale of it. Only 6 months to go before we head back to the USA for another road trip around Arizona and Colorado areas 😀 Behind the 📸 Canon 400D Canon 18-55mm kit lens 18mm 1/180 sec exposure f8 ISO 100 at Grand Canyon National Park

Apparently it's #NationalParkWeek, so what better way to promote it than sharing the #TwinPeaks-themed piece I did in the style of the classic #WPA #NationalParks poster series* again? (Okay: Other than finding out earlier than now & letting folks know that TODAY was the day all entrance fees were waived or suggesting you donate to the #NPS to help keep our parks accessible & beautiful, that is 😬) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All credit to the people responsible for the beautiful images - from those behind the National Parks posters (many who remain unknown, in fact) AND our beloved Twin Peaks - that served as my inspiration, as well as "Ranger" Doug Leen (+ everyone who works with him at rangerdoug.com) for preserving so much of the former, and my pal @ambercascade for planting the idea to combine the two in my head to begin with ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *which can still be purchased via my Etsy shop (link in bio)...where some new designs in the same vein might also be coming soon :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #art #artoninstagram #artistsoninstagram #artistsofinstagram #WorksProjectsAdministration #NationalParkService #DavidLynch #Ghostwood #posterart #posterdesign #illustration

Tomorrow I'll be posting one of the greatest sunsets I may ever see but first here is a great little moment with the Grand Canyon Railway. The Grand Canyon Railway runs from Williams, Az to Grand Canyon National Park. They primarily operate diesel engines but this hundred years old steam locomotive runs at the head of the train once in a while and I happened to be there on just such a day. This was a real treat. The railway has run for ages and if you're looking for a timeless experience, use the train to get to the Grand Canyon. #nationalparkservice #nationalparks #grandcanyonnationalpark #grandcanyon #nationalparkweek #arizona #roadtrip #steam #steamengine #train #grandcanyonrailway

When the swamp lands used to be 30 million acres but it’s now only 22,000 acres because we cut down all the trees it makes you think about humans direct impact on our surroundings. Thankful we were able to protect what we have left.

What do you do on the first day of #nationalparkweek2019 ? You visit a park you’ve been meaning to that’s right in your backyard of course! The Harry S. Truman National Park Site consists of various locations- and they aren’t even all official! It was very informative, the Truman home was a gorgeous time capsule, and it was the most beautiful day to spend with my family doing something that I love! #nationalhistoricsite #nps #missouri #independence #adventure #optoutoutside #explore #harrystruman #harrystrumannps #trumanhouse #nationalparkweek #nationalparkservice #findyourpark at Harry S Truman National Historic Site

VALLEY SPELL Drawn by the snow drape canyons below I went to scout for an ideal position.  Prior to setting up, I was watching the conditions during my lunch.  As time progress to sunset hour the elements started to converge harmoniously.  The clouds texturizing the sky and the mountain peaks highlighted by sunset, made the scene a lasting illusion. • • • • • • #landscapes #landscapeview #landscapecapture #landscapephotography #digitalphotography #canon #canonusa #canon_photo #loweprobags #reallyrightstuff #indurotripods #cokinfilters #exploreoutdoors #earthoutdoors #wilderness #wildernessvibes #nature_brilliance #earth_shots #earthfocus #sunrise_sunset #longexposure_photo #longexposurephotography #longexposureshot #utah #canyonlandsnationalpark #nationalparkservice at Canyonlands National Park
