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

5 miles down today! But due to my knee I know I’m going to have to take a couple days off. It hurts having to take some time not running but if I don’t I’m afraid I won’t heal and be able to continue. It also doesn’t mean I can’t exercise- just need to do a lot more cross training to keep the endurance up! And every time I run I do so for the National Park Foundation! If you run/walk/bike download charity apps and you could earn money for an organization of your choosing too! #run #running #runnersofinstagram #momswhorun #runnergirl #cardio #exercise #workout #motivation #halfmarathontraining #halfmarathon #training #nationalparkfoundation #nationalparkservice #nps #nationalpark #charitymiles #lovetorun #runhappy #onlyhalfcrazy #tristaterunningcompany #tristaterunning #tsrc

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

Happy Birthday to White Sands National Monument founded this day in 1933. It is the most wonderful sand box you will ever play in. •••••• Many thanks to Sandra @nationalparkpatchlady for the goodness of the dunes. ——— Happy birthday to one of my favorite National Park sites, White Sands National Monument. ⠀ ⠀ Gypsum rarely occurs as sand because it is water-soluble. Normally, rain would dissolve the gypsum and carry it to the sea. The Tularosa Basin has no outlet to the sea, so it traps rain that dissolves gypsum from the surrounding San Andres and Sacramento Mountains. Thus water either sinks into the ground, or forms shallow pools that subsequently dry out and leave gypsum on the surface in a crystalline form called selenite. ⠀ ⠀ 📍: White Sands National Monument, NM⠀ 📅 : July 2017⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #travel #explore #learn #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark ⠀ ——— #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #wnpa1938

😍 For my fundraiser for the National Park Foundation, I'm sharing this picture I took of a marmot in Grand Teton National Park last summer during a hike to Lake Solitude. Tina Lasisi spotted this little marmot 20 yards away from where we were next to the trail. This rodent was amazingly brave and curious and did not shy away as we cautiously got closer. For 15 minutes, we gawked at each other until Tina and I decided to leave our new friend in peace. This is also why I created this fundraiser. National Parks are full of surprises and you experience encounters you will not forget. If you are a wonderful person and want to participate in the fundraiser, the link is in bio!

Virgin River, Zion National Park. The Virgin River is a tributary of the Colorado River in the U.S.A. The river is about 162 miles It was designated Utah's first wild and scenic river in 2009, during the centennial celebration of Zion National Park. Despite flowing through an arid region, the Virgin River is home to a surprisingly diverse array of plants and animals. Southwestern Utah is located at the intersection of three physiographic regions: the Colorado Plateau, the Great Basin, and the Mojave Desert. The exceptional landscapes and habitats of this region harbor unique plant and animal communities and species found nowhere else in the world. Without the water of the Virgin River system, these species could not exist. I used little stopper lee filter to make water more smooth. @zionnps @leefilters @natgeo #nationalparkgeek  #nationalpark  #nationalparks #findyourpark  #goparks #nationalparkfoundation  #everykidinapark #zion  #zionnationalpark   #southernutah  #utahisrad  #utahunique #utahmountains  #utahstate  #utahrocks #wowutah  #werutah   #igutah #instautah   #nationalparkservice #usinterior  #xputah #igsouthwest  #np10k #oleksandrmokrohuz #westbysouthwest #leefilters #worldclasslandscapephotographers

Oh beautiful Biscayne! It won't be long until my toes are in your warm waters again!⠀ Within sight of downtown Miami, yet worlds away, Biscayne protects a rare combination of aquamarine waters, emerald islands, and fish-bejeweled coral reefs. Here too is evidence of 10,000 years of human history, from pirates and shipwrecks to pineapple farmers and presidents. Outdoors enthusiasts can boat, snorkel, camp, watch wildlife…or simply relax in a rocking chair gazing out over the bay.(nps)⠀ ⠀ 📍: Biscayne National Park, FL⠀ 📅 : January 2017⠀ ⠀ #travel #explore #learn #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark

An important story of Japanese detention by the US government during WWII is told at Manzanar NHS this #smallparksaturday •••••• Thanks to Sandra @nationalparkpatchlady for sharing from this historic location. --------- The countdown of my favorite NPS sites I visited this year with #3 from the Western US: @manzanarnps ⠀⠀ A swirl of emotions occur when you visit MANZ - anger, peace, beauty, frustration, and the dichotomy of understanding and not understanding all at the same time. Wow this place does a phenomenal job of telling the stories of the Japanese-Americans who were interned here during WWII. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ One of the big takeaways for me: each internment camp contained people from a specific geographic region, so Manzanar interned people from the Los Angeles area. At this time in the 1940's, a common occupation for Japanese-American men was landscaping (think Japanese gardens in Hollywood - they were all the rage!). When relocated to this basin in the Eastern Sierras, many realized that water flowed down the mountains into this alluvial plain. Taking advantage of this, many landscapers created beautiful parks, gardens, and koi ponds. The park has found over 30 so far and is currently excavating and restoring these artifacts.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ 📍: Manzanar National Historical Site, CA⠀⠀ 📅 : June 2017⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #nps #travel #explore #learn #nationalparkgeek .⠀⠀ -------- #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #historytold #manzanar
