Although there are no wild 🦃 in #denali, we are #thankful for the more than 160 species of birds that call the park home in the summer -- 30 of which winter here (including the majestic looking spruce grouse). Denali's resident birds are well-adapted to cope with the extreme temperatures of an arctic winter. Ptarmigan and grouse burrow into the snow pack to keep warm, staying submerged beneath the surface for up to 3 days at a time. Chickadees tough out the cold winter nights in a torpor, lowering their body temperatures up to 12 degrees C, conserving valuable energy. Redpolls have a storage pouch in their esophagus from which they derive food energy to survive the cold. All of Denali's birds rely on shivering as a way to maintain body temperature and stay warm throughout the winter. #HappyThanksgiving #nps101 #nationalpark #Alaska @alaskanps @naturenps @nationalparkservice

Happy Thanksgiving! 🦃Did you know? During the Civil War President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed that America's first national Thanksgiving holiday was to be held on the fourth Thursday in November of 1863. Prior to this, each state scheduled its own Thanksgiving holiday at different times, and mainly in Northern states. Responding to a growing national interest in the holiday Lincoln issued the following words: "Washington, D.C., October 3, 1863, By the President of the United States of America. A Proclamation. I do... invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens." . . . . . . #thanksgiving #ulsg #FindYourPark #NPS101 #NPS #NationalParkService #NationalPark #usgrant #ulyssesgrant #civilwar #military #civilrights #president #presidential #history #historic #farm #plantation #stl #missouri #familyfriendly #vacation #goparks #getoutside #neverstopexploring

I have so many things to be thankful for this year. Right now, I am extra thankful for the National Parks Service protecting these incredible places and the animals who inhabit them. I’m also extremely thankful for my husband, who is always ready for the next adventure. Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! The Statue of Liberty has appeared in the parade numerous times. The most notable being in 2001. Instead of the tradition of Tom the Turkey leading off the parade, organizers decided in light of the recent attacks on 9/11 and the mood of the country as a whole, leading the parade off with a more patriotic float was better. So Lady Liberty lead the way. ⠀ ⠀ Thanks to @georgeloper for this photo. ⠀ ⠀ #findyourpark #nps101 #nationalpark #happythankgiving #macysthanksgivingdayparade

The photo posted yesterday shows one of the electric lighting cables before and after it was camouflaged. This two year project will allow visitors to enjoy the spectacular features of the cavern without the distraction of the black cables. Volunteers from the Sandia Grotto assisted the park this past weekend to help camouflage miles of lighting cables within Carlsbad Cavern.

Lead the way, Jr. ranger Penny. ••• Yesterday, we explored one of the areas off to the side of the road. This formation is called "The Invader." Do you ever stop to explore the exhibit of rock formations off to the side of the road? The not so crowded, popular areas that are not on the map? I think you should! We're starting to explore new areas, and it's so much fun!

“The clearest way into the universe is through a forest wilderness.” -John Muir Have you explored the wild Everglades? Walking through the pine rocklands is like walking through a door into the heart of the Everglades. So what are you waiting for? Step into the mist.

A quick stop over in Saint Louis, Missouri, USA makes us remember how kind Midwesterners are. . Every country has its stereotypes and America has many - one of the most positive is the kind people of the Midwest region. . Walking the streets of downtown St. Louis we are greeted with smiles, nods and hellos by fellow passerbys. . Makes us feel a little nostalgic, but happy as we smiled at the city's famous arch. . . . #stlouis #stl #arch #architecture #midwest #usa #missouri #travel #wanderlust #travelawesome #nikon #nikon100 #yourshotphotographer #landscape #travelgram #findyourpark #sky #cityscape #city #adventure #explore #clouds #timeoutsociety #viewbug #america #monument #ourplanetdaily #america #nature #nps101

Boundary Trail- Mt St Helens. We hiked this in July. The wildflowers were the most spectacular I’ve ever seen them, and yet they were eclipsed by the majesty of Mt St Helens. This painting is my first in a series of paintings of Washington Trails. . . . #washingtontrails #wta #washingtonstate #hiking👣 #pnwonderland #globalartnetwork #blueearthpastels #pnwartist #pnwart #mountainescape #mtsthelens #washingtontrailsassociation #hikingadventures #outdoorart #nationalparks #nps101 #nps #conservation #pastelartist #softpastel #protectourparks

One of the most common types of cave formation is the stalagmite. They are formed as drops of water laden with minerals hit the cave floor and build up a mound of calcite crystals over time. The faster the water drip rate, the larger the stalagmite. An easy way to tell the difference between a stalactite and a stalagmite is to remember that a stalactite hangs tight to the ceiling and a stalagmite you might trip over.
