Some trails just amaze from top to bottom. ••••• Thanks to Ron @emergingeye for the great hike. ------- Nice as Bryce... Definitely had to add Bryce Canyon to my 2017 top 9! One of my favorite places outside of Oregon! This adventure was with the entire Wolfpack including my Mom who enjoyed Bryce Canyon even more than the Grand Canyon! There is something truly special about this place! But the blue skies are not to be trusted here! It was late March and the weather was perfect the whole way down. Shortly after we made it to the bottom, the blue quickly turned gray and started snowing hard! I had to grab my six month old son and rush him back to the rim top to the car! This is when I realized how thin the air is here and that the rim top is at 9000ft! Gasping for air, I made it back to the car as fast as possible! By time we took off everything was already covered in snow! We had to change our plans and headed south to Arizona! ------ #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #bryce

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

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

From @joetherapy | DYNAMIC PIGEON POSE🐦🐦 - Here's the variation of the Pigeon Pose that improves not only mobility but also hip stability! It's harder than it looks so give it a try and let me know how it goes! - Here's how to perform the stretch! - 1️⃣ Setup into a standard Pigeon Pose 👉If you don't know how I have a post called "Glute Stretch" you can check out on my profile! 2️⃣ Cross your arms across your shoulders! 3️⃣ Place your back foot on something that can slide! 👉A workout slider (valslide) works the best, but you can use anything that can slide over whatever surface you are on! 4️⃣ From the starting position, push your back leg back in a straight line. 🔑Try to prevent the back foot from sliding off to the side. 5️⃣ Continue pushing back until you feel a stretch in the glutes/hips! 6️⃣ Now it's time to bring yourself back to the starting position! 7️⃣ Engage your core and you're going to use your front leg to press into the ground. Feel like you're pushing your knee and ankle equally into the ground. The force you create will help you pull your body back to the starting position. 8️⃣ Repeat! - 🙂Tag a Friend who thinks they can do this Stretch! - 🎵Culture Club - Make Me Move (Tobu Remix ft.

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.

Thursday already? This throwback Thursday is overlook trail at Zion National Park in Utah. We want to thank everyone that has supported our small business this past year, because we donate a portion of every purchase towards supporting our beloved parks through the NPCA. Photo Feb 2016. In November 1993 the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) completed construction of the Canyon Overlook Trail. The construction included chiseled steps, block retaining walls, the platform at the end of the trail. The parking area was built in 1968, not for the trail since it was not yet built but for a photo stop and for general use. The Canyon Overlook Trail is one of Zion's classics that is well advertised by the park. It begins with charming steps, carved into sandstone. The winding trail travels along Pine Creek Canyon, a popular canyoning route and the Zion-Mt. Carmel Tunnel. It is a short and easy hike ending at the edge of a cliff that allows a glorious view of lower Zion Canyon. The path continues to a mound of slickrock, directly over the Great Arch, hiding the trails end. From the top of the mound the sight is breathtaking. Walking closer to the fenced edge gives an impressive view below. Towering sandstone cliffs loom in the distance. To the left are hoodoos, to the right is the East Temple. Hikers often sit among the nest of hoodoos gazing down into lower Zion Canyon to see the twists and turns of the Zion Switchbacks. Straight ahead is an impressive show of landmarks. An eye catcher is the large crown of rounded sandstone. This tuft of temple cap is the white turbines of the Beehives. Zion monoliths are displayed in hues of red and white, crowded around the stark white Beehives. The tallest cliff in the main section of Zion National Park is the West Temple. To the right of the West Temple are the Towers of the Virgin and the Streaked Wall. You will also be able to see the Sundial, Altar of Sacrifice and the East Temple on the far right. #zion #NPS #nationalparks #donate #support #outdoors #nature #throwbackthursdays #throwbackthursday #overlooktrail #utah #trail #hiking #npca #nationalparkconservationassociation

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.
