"In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks." - John Muir, theburnedhand.com . . Tomorrow (4/21) is the 1st day of #NationalParkWeek (4/21 - 4/29) across the U.S.  It's also the 2nd of the 4 fee-free days at many of the national parks that charge admission. . . National Park Week is a great time to get off the couch and discover - or REdiscover - one of the 400+ amazing parks across the country and get back to nature. Other notable events during National Park Week: ⏩ 4/21 - National Junior Ranger Day ⏩ 4/22 - Earth Day, 50th Anniversary of the National Trails System and the Wild & Scenic Rivers System ⏩4/28 - Military & Veterans Recognition Day ⏩4/29 - National Park Rx Day . . What can you do at a national park? Hike, bike, walk, camp, kayak, canoe, unplug, unwind. . . PICTURED: Harpers Ferry National Historic Park. Its one of my favorite places to visit, especially during the Fall when the leaves have changed. . . . #nationalparkweek #nationalparkservice #nationalparkfoundation @nps @npf #findyourpark #getoutdoors #history #hike #bike #cycle #kayak #canoe #row #camp #feefreeday #nationalparkweek2018 #harpersferry @harpersferrynps #relax #randr #unplug #getunplugged

Flashback Friday to when there was still snow on the ground in Arches. This is the view from inside Double Arch! Yes it was a bit cold, especially as the sunset, but oh so worth it!

Day 8 - El Burgo Ranero to Mansilla de la Mulas was a very long never ending road that felt like it was going nowhere. No matter what we accomplished another 12 Miles with more time to reflect on life. #buencamino #caminodesantiago #spain #pilgrimage #walkingfordays #ourspiritualjourney #peregrinos #hellamiles #hellatired #hellahella #charitymiles #nationalparkfoundation #adventuresofmojo👣

Porto's botanical garden is so beautiful. What a wonderful way to spend a few hours. This tree was a "super tree" that looked like 3 trees morphed into one and was a perfect spot to rest after walking all day. Tons of cool paths, flowers, and statues all around this park. I would have never discovered this place if I had not made new friends while I was here. They insisted we go and I am so happy we did. . . #nationalpark #nature #nationalparkgeek #nationalparks #findyourpark #travel #nps #roadtrip #nationalparkservice #naturephotography #nationalparklife #optoutside #naturelovers #hiking #landscape #wanderlust #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #nationalparkusa #nationalparkweek #adventure #explore #nationalparkcentennial #landscapephotography #nationalparktrust #neverstopexploring #nationalparksusa #nationalparkthy #nationalparksweek #photography

I'm SO close to my goal! I am committed to running a half marathon (my first ever!) on May 12th and raising donations to keep me motivated... Our National Parks are so important to me. I'll never forget my first time laying eyes on the Grand Canyon; I couldn't even believe it was real, and was instantly hooked. There is so much natural, unadulterated beauty in our country, and I'm committed to keeping it that way. Please consider a donation to the #NationalParkFoundation using the link in my bio! #yosemite #halfmarathon #run #race #committed #motivated #donate #nationalparks #NPS #NPF #nature #beauty #wonder #halfdome

THE ROAD TO ATHENS 2018! 🇬🇷 Official first day of registration started today, but I took the priority early registration last week. It's about to get real people. Eight miles today that was supposed to be seven. Right foot was better today because someone stretched the muscles like they are supposed to. Also, tried some new straps to help my arches. Felt okay, but I'm still going to put them through the paces before receiving the 💯. Additionally, I wore the Salomon trail shoes on the payment. Feet weren't happy about that, but they need the extreme beat down feeling for Sunday's trail race. 8.36 miles / 64.50 MTD . . . . #athensmarathon2018 #athens2018 #charitymiles #dmv #nationalparkfoundation #everymilematters #leathermansloop #2018BroadStreetRun #PopularBKHalf #Narrowshalfmarathon #queens10k #nyrr #nycruns #blackmenrun #running #wilrunsdc #runyourworld #runneroftheweek #instarunners #runnerslife #optoutside #rundc #runnersofinstagram #findyourpark #savepubliclands #running4jason

For years Grand Canyon has challenged Artists to try and capture its’ scope. It’s a Herculean task, but I couldn't get enough of the layers of canyon, and all the narrow protruding ridges, whittled away by sand, dirt, wind and water over the eons.

That didn't start pleasant. My right foot ached badly during the first mile, but l pushed through it knowing that sometimes the pain will let up. And it did, for the most part. Didn't stretch those plantar muscles, so I had to pay with pain dollars. Anyway, I'm happy with the nine miles. Race day is coming. 9.07 miles / 56.14 MTD . . . . #charitymiles #dmv #lakeview #nationalparkfoundation #everymilematters #leathermansloop #2018BroadStreetRun #PopularBKHalf #Narrowshalfmarathon #queens10k #nyrr #nycruns #blackmenrun #running #wilrunsdc #runyourworld #runneroftheweek #instarunners #runnerslife #optoutside #rundc #runnersofinstagram #findyourpark #savepubliclands #running4jason

The mountain ring in palladium sterling silver is now available for custom order! I love how I looked with this meteorite ring, so I snapped a quick photo of them together. . Did you know I donate 1% of all made to order rings to non-profit organizations and charities every year? With a new design comes a new opportunity. For the mountain ring, I chose the National Park Foundation. Many of us get to visit our favorite mountains as part of a National Park. Ordering one of these rings will help support those parks. .

I love how the depths of canyons out west get these different shades of blue as the sun sets. Of course this effect is magnified in the biggest canyon of them all, The Grand Canyon. Witnessing a sunset here is truly majestic, I would recommend it to anyone as a must see.

Playing around with long exposure at night really makes you appreciate how much light availability there actually is, and how generally unaware you are that you’re on a giant rock that’s spinning at ~1,000 miles an hour. At a 90 second exposure, the trails of the stars as we spin past them start to become visible. . Phantom Ranch glows warmly in the lessening light. It is the only lodging below the canyon rim, and can only be reached by mule, on foot or via the Colorado River.

Today,I wanted to introduce myself to those of you I don't know yet. I'm Estelle and I'm the maker and designer at @estellevernondesigns. I took my first art metals class at Northwood High School in Silver Spring, Maryland. It was twenty years before I was able to take another jewelry class. After I left my job as an Audiologist at the National Institutes of Health, I began studying metals at Montgomery College in Rockville, Maryland. In 2001 I was juried into the Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, Virginia. I've been a resident artist in studio 201 since 2002. I love creating art jewelry for people who care about the details and prefer jewelry designed with understated elegance. I get great joy out of helping my clients find the perfect piece of jewelry for themselves or a special gift. Do you have a special occasion coming up that begs for a gift of jewelry? DM or use the email form on my website.

Happy birthday to Natural Bridges National Monument (established April 16, 1908). Also, on March 6, 2007, the International Dark-Sky Association certified this park as the first International Dark Sky Park. These are the three natural bridges in the park: Owachomo, Sipapu and Kachina.

📷 “Farewell” at Lake Mead. In a week’s time I’ll be gone from Lake Mead and starting at my new duty station. I’ll leave my new destination a surprise 😉 I’ll still post old photos from LAKE, especially until I build up a batch of photos from my new location. Seen here is my trusty steed at LAKE - present for nearly every photo I’ve posted. Long May You Run!

From somewhere, to nowhere. Today was an adventure! It’s always a treat having a visitor in my city and getting to take them to the #unexpectedvegas locations. 11am start at Bonnie Springs, then to Red Rock, Hoover Dam, and Valley of Fire. Ended the trip at a glorious hotel in St. George, Utah to kick up our feet and relax. . . . . . . . . . . #adventure #nationalparks #gooutside #gooutsideandplay #optoutside #nps #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #nationalparkfoundation #vinylstickers #vinylsticker #adventure #explore #explorer #etsy #etsyseller #etsyshop #exploremore #outdoors #travel #hiking #wanderer #wander #wanderlust #wandering #totheunknown #traveler

How’s the quality of our stickers you might ask? It even surprises me sometimes! @trev.hull wiped his car off after a long and cold Montana winter, only to discover his stickers remained vibrant and smooth! All of our stickers are printed on a thick durable vinyl that’s great for indoor or outdoor use. The sun won’t fade them, the rain won’t crumble them, and the mud won’t scratch them! From car wash to snow storm, we’ve got your car covered. . . . . . . . . #adventure #nationalparks #gooutside #gooutsideandplay #optoutside #nps #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #nationalparkfoundation #vinylstickers #vinylsticker #adventure #explore #explorer #etsy #etsyseller #etsyshop #exploremore #outdoors #travel #hiking #wanderer #wander #wanderlust #wandering #totheunknown #traveler

On April 12, 1929, President Herbert Hoover signed a proclamation establishing Arches National Monument. Later it was redesignated as a National Park on November 12, 1971. This is one of the views easily overlooked by visitors searching for arches only. Here you have the Le Sal Mountains as seen from the Tapestry Arch.
