A pronghorn mother and fawn in northern Yellowstone's Lamar Valley. In the background, an early snowstorm moves across the valley, likely prompting thoughts of migrating south for the winter. I always liked to think I caught the dawn taking a last look back at the only home it's ever known prior to undertaking its first perilous migration to lower elevations. #pronghorn #lamarvalley #yellowstonenationalpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalpark #nationalparks #publiclands #nationalparkadventurer #nationalparkmagazine #findyourpark #nationalparkbox #npcollective #americasbestidea #exclusive_wildlife #wildlife_perfection #wildlife_seekers #splendid_animals #bd_pro #tv_fauna #outdoorphotographermagazine #marvelouz_animals #nature_brilliance #1natureshot #best_wildlife_images #Wildlifeaddicts #discoverwildlife #nanpapix #wildlifeplanet #shots_of_animals #Loves_United_Animals

With trepidation and guilt, I drove to Everglades National Park yesterday to see what was happening. The gates were open and a small 8.5x11 white piece of paper was taped to the iconic brown sign at the entrance.⠀ ⠀ Fortunately, I ran into my friend Ranger Jeff who, while in plain clothes, was still serving our parks and their visitors. We assisted a woman from the Netherlands, who didn't understand what was going on and couldn't get a map for the park; he swore in three Jr. Rangers who diligently returned their completed books in hopes of getting their symbolic badge; he kicked out a couple of guys who were illegally fishing in Paurotis Pond.⠀ ⠀ I asked him why he just didn't take the day off. In his kind, midwestern way, Jeff said it wasn't about him, but the visitors who only have a day to see this beautiful park on a layover, or the person from another country who will experience things they couldn't see where they live, or the kids whose father brought them to the park for the day and don't understand all the crap going on in Washington.⠀ 📍: Everglades National Park, FL⠀ 📅 : January 2018⠀ ⠀ #governmentshutdown #governmentshutdown2018 #trumpshutdown#travel #explore #learn #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark

Although technically still "open" and as accessible as the winter weather allows, due to the government shutdown the national parks are unstaffed with no facilities, maintenance, or services available, which potentially endangers both visitors and the environment. Hoping this doesn't last long; shutting down the National Park Service is like having my heart ripped out. Here's a throwback to better times at Canyonlands in Utah last April; I just love the desert and all of its rugged and desolate vastness. I'm thankful for the National Park Service and all the rangers who help protect and preserve this and all the other parks' precious lands. #canyonlandsnp #islandinthesky #nps #moab #utah #coloradoriver #lasalmountains #coloradoplateau #desertlove #desertsolitaire #americasbestidea

Let's share with you some of the best insider tips before you go to visit Yellowstone: Courtesy of @ynplodges 1.Explore the Upper Geyser Basin in the early morning before the day visitors arrive or in the late afternoon after they leave. 2. While the day visitors view Old Faithful and the surrounding area, head to 136-square-mile Yellowstone Lake. Consider signing up for a guided boat tour or rent a boat on your own. 3. Go outside after dark. Walk 100 yards from your lodge or drive a short distance to a turnout. (Pro Tip: Since the park keeps the outdoor lighting soft, bring a flashlight for comfort, especially when traveling with young children) 4. Your best chance of spotting the park’s legendary bison as well as other critters is in the early morning or evening. 5. Stay a safe distance from the wildlife. If you want to see what a bison or elk looks like up close, view them through your binoculars. ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ #nature #wildlife #yellowstone #coyote #amongthewild #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #nationalparkgeek #fypyes #findyourpark #nps #naturelovers #nationalparktrust #climatechangeisreal #sunrise #nationalparkfoundation #dawn #naturephotography #naturelover #natureporn #mothernature #outdoors #sky #npca #skyporn #sun #clouds #cloudscape #cloudporn

Learn what makes Bears Ears National Monument so special by tuning into @rocktheparkabc with Colton @coltondsmith and Jack @jackfsteward this weekend. Rock the Park always inspires us to go explore! ••••• Thanks Colton @coltondsmith for sharing this important story. ------ - PLEASE READ 💥 This weekend our Bears Ears National Monument episode will air on @rocktheparkabc on ABC. It was an honor to film this incredible desert landscape and walk on ground that is held as sacred by so many Native American Tribes. The combination of beauty, history and spirituality I found at Bears Ears is unlike anything I’ve experienced before. Bears Ears is a story that to many has been in the making for the past 4,000 years, it’s a story that needs to be heard, shared and protected. We all have a right to have our voices heard and when others have their voices suppressed it’s our responsibility to raise ours for them. . . Since we filmed this episode the decision was made to reduce the size of Bears Ears significantly. I can’t promise that everything shown in our episode still falls under protection. After watching this, that shouldn’t sit well with you- infact that should flat out anger you. It’s never to late though to raise your voice. So share it, spread it and tell as many as you can that Bears Ears needs our help and we must do everything we can to protect it. Go to bearsearscoalition.org to take action! ------- #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #monumentalmistake #savebearsears #bearsears

Got up early for a sunrise hike yesterday. There was one icy pitch and a traverse across a borderline slab of snow on a steep slope that made me wish I brought crampons and an ice axe, but I managed. . . #rockymountains #longspeak #optoutside #chasmlake #americasbestidea #colorado14ers #mountainscape #rockandsky #rockandice #winterhiking #14ers #❄️ #colorado #getoutside #alpinelake #icyhues #sunrisehike #rmnp #mountainside

One of the things I love about National Parks is how nature and our country’s stories bring us together. Today, I experienced something I hadn’t witnessed before - young children being sworn in as newly minted citizens of the United States. Many of them were so emotional while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and looked nervously at their parents. When Ranger Gary enveloped them in the American Flag, they reached up as I saw them reach for their dreams as new citizens. ⠀ ⠀ 📍: Biscayne National Park, FL⠀ 📅 : January 2018⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #travel #explore #learn #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark#protectDACA

Sunset over the Sierra del Carmen- after a good couple hours bouncing along the river road in Big Bend National Park, our day finished with a glowing sunset over the banded layers of these mountains in Mexico. I don't know anything beyond the name of these peaks, but it sure looks like it would be a heck of a place to explore. Anyone want to grab a passport and join?
