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

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.

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

Under the leadership of César E. Chávez and others such as Dolores Huerta and Larry Itliong, along with support from millions of Americans, the farm worker movement joined forces with other reform movements to achieve unprecedented successes that greatly improved working and living conditions and wages for farm workers. During the 1970s the United Farm Workers of America (UFW) grew and expanded from its early roots as a union for farm workers to also become a national voice for the poor and disenfranchised. The enduring legacies of César E. Chávez and the farm worker movement include passage of California's Agricultural Labor Relations Act of 1975, the first law in the U.S. that recognized farm workers' collective bargaining rights.

I planned an entire trip around going out to this point and taking a picture at sunrise. Shooting into the sun is a bit hard on a camera to get proper exposure of everything between bright white lights and dark shadows so you end up with super contrasty shots.  That's why they say "Never shoot into the sun", but at the same time I love doing it. The sun is just peaking over Navajo Mountain, which is known as the "Heart of the Earth" in the origin stories of 3 Native American tribes, Kind of like Mt. Olympus for the Greeks.  So whether you believe in Jupiter, Zeus, Shaash, Christ, Allah, Gaia, Ba'al, Odin, Ra, or just pretty mountains, it's nice to have them winking at you from the top of the mountain when you start your day. #2017BackstoryNine

The "Best Nine" pics on Instagram are created based off likes but I thought I'd share another "Best Nine" that aren't the prettiest but maybe had more backstory for those that don't mind a little reading. This arch could possibly be what triggered the start of my desire to always be exploring outside.  It was on the cover of a tourism guide to Utah in 1986.  I read it as a kid (and rediscovered it in the bottom of a box in my parents basement last summer) and vowed to visit every park and monument (done), hike every trail listed (about 75% done), and see every vista in the book.  This arch was hardest to find and get documentation on, even in the internet age.  As of now I still don't know it's official name (I named it Keyhole Arch since "Mesa Arch" is already taken). But its actually visible from Grand View Point Overlook in Canyonlands, just camouflaged from the high angle of view. However this angle is from the White Rim trail down below.  This last year I took my father out on the trail that we've been talking about travelling ever since I was a teenager (or younger). Anybody who has stood on the rim of Canyonlands knows how magical the place is, and the feeling is only compounded when you descend into the canyons themselves.  So it was especially fun being able to share all of that with my Dad, even if parts of the trail added a bunch of grey hairs to both of us.  We started up on the Mesa that Island in the Sky shares and then descended all the way to the Colorado River and dipped a toe in to say I'd made the whole trip, from top to bottom.

Alaska is a must on our coast to coast tour with its mountains and wildlife. Happy New Year. ••••• Thanks to Sonja @thenationalparksgirl for the unique view. ・・・ Kayaking next to countless of these harbor seals in Kenai Fjords National Park in May was an incredible experience. They would poke their heads above the water and curiously watch us as we glided past. The park requests that you try to stay 500 yards from them (the seals don’t always obey that rule, though) so I brought along a 150-600mm zoom lens to capture these creatures from an appropriate distance. The reason it is so important to give them a wide berth is that they spend most of their time resting and caring for their pups on floating ice. When boats approach them they slide back into the water, wasting precious energy reserves that are vital to marine mammals who spend their life in a cold environment. ------- #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #alaska

A coast to coast tour must include star gazing in Joshua Tree. Happy New Year. •••••• Thanks to Justin @justinthewild_ for the starry night. ・・・ Winter in the Mojave is undoubtedly the best time to visit the desert. The days are pleasant, the sun less scorching and the mild heat makes for more bearable hiking. But when the sun sets the wind picks up and the temperature drops. A deep chill grips the air not commonly associated with the desert. It’s tempting then to follow the crowds out of the park. Don’t. Stick around for the light show. ☀️🌙🌌 ------- #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #joshuatree #astrophotography
