The quickest way to get a sense of the landscapes of eastern California is to see it from the summit of Yosemite’s second highest peak. From here you have sweeping views of the saline Mono Lake, Yosemite’s rugged high peaks (all granite capped, except the Lyell group), and, in the distance, the White Mountains of the Great Basin (highest mountains in the basin and range geological province). . . . #mtdana #13er #monolake #yosemite #yosemitehighcountry #easternsierra #highsierra #summitpost #sierranevada #mtdanasummit #takeahike #greatbasin #basinandrange #whitemountains #mountainsofcalifornia #seekmorewilderness #amongthewild #keepitwild #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #exploremore #choosemountains #optoutside #getoutside #outofdoors #StayWild #OurWild

This next series of six images will be from National Parks taken over the summer. The first image is from Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming. A storm in the Grand Tetons as seen from Jackson Lake. In a matter of minutes incoming storms dramatically change the landscape.

Let’s cruise to Olympic National Park for this week’s installment of #waterfallwednesday Put it in slow gear and enjoy the views along the way. ••••• Thanks to Andrew @andrew_reis12 for going with the flow. ・・・ Sol Duc Falls was a super cool quick hike of only 1.6 miles round trip. DEFINITELY worth it!! You are surrounded in vegetation in the rainforest and the sound of the rushing water carving through the rocks is so peaceful. Super fun trip to @olympic_nps that I will not forget. Wish I could just go back to that time! —— #nationalparkgeek #FYPyes #nps #nationalpark #nationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #goparks #nationalparkfoundation #everykidinapark #nature #naturelovers #npca #nationalparktrust #protectourpubliclands #climatechangeisreal #onepercentfortheplanet #olympicnationalpark #olympic

My love for the desert is never greater than after a rain. Ahh, the sweet, sweet smell of creosote. If someone could accurately capture this smell, I’d buy all the candles. #findyourpark #greatdesertwanderingsof2019 #americasbestidea #nationalparkgeek #deathvalley #nationalparks #sanddunes

Either an Appalachian Cottontail (Sylvilagus obscurus) or Eastern Cottontail (Sylvilagus floridanus), I’m leaning towards the former.

This is either Mount Norris or The Thunderer, not sure which one.

It rained here today for the first time since May. @deathvalleynps is magical. . . . Stop one, Badwater Basin, is nearly 300 feet below sea level and is the lowest point in North America. . . . Followed by the Artists Palette, full of colors not adequately reflected in these photos. More photos to come. #findyourpark #greatdesertwanderingsof2019 #deathvalley #americasbestidea #nationalparkgeek #optoutside

Happy Birthday Zion National Park! On Tuesday the park turned 100 years old, and even at that age her beauty is still stunning. . In 2015 I took my first trip deep into her canyons to explore the more technical side of Zion, and it opened up a whole new world. Narrow slots, colorfully sculpted walls, and deep solitude only found trapped in this sandstone wonderland. . So excited to return this weekend for my third canyoneering adventure there. Ready to be dazzled yet again 👍 . . . #TBT #ZionNationalPark #Zion #canyoneering #canyoning #NaionalParkGeek #NationalParks #Happy100Zion #AmericasBestIdea #protectourpubliclands #Utah #Nofilter

Quick stop in St. Louis on the way home to visit the arch. I've passed back and forth through this town over the last 20+ years at least 40 times, and I have never stopped to see this park before in person. I've made a commitment to stopping and looking around more. Photography has given me a good excuse to do that. #stlouis #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #usinterior #nps #goparks #usparksandmonuments #nationalpark #explorestlouis #stl #explorestl #stlouisgram #nationalparklife #radparks #nationalparkphotography #missouri #americasbestidea #usnationalparks @metroeastparkandrec #Travel #GatewayArch #MississippiRiver #StLouisArch #MO #StLouisMO @only.in.missouri

We didn’t see Zeus that day, but we did get a gander of the breathtaking views of the Olympic Mountains from Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park. The highest peak is Mount Olympus at 7,965ft and although the mountains are almost totally within the park, they are part of the larger Pacific Coast Range. @olympic_nps. • • #NationalParkOdyssey #NationalPark #NPS #NationalParkGeek #Adventurenthusiasts #GoExplore #AdventureIsOutThere #NPFans #National_Park_Photography #ParkRoamers #NationalParkObsessed #FindYourPark #TheNationalParksPass #NationalParkLife #USParksAndMonuments #AmongTheWild #AmericasBestIdea #GetOutside #GoParks #USInterior #NationalParksAndMonuments #HikingTheGlobe #RadParks #Washington #OlympicNP #OlympicMountains #PNW #PacificNorthwest

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better, we were up and away again heading back towards the lodge to visit Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve. The peaks everyone, the peaks. We flew in, over, and through mountain passes (all part of the Brooks Range) before landing on Walker Lake near the ‪small island‬ of Storm Island near Swan Island. It was official: I had touched down in my 37th National Park! - I was truly in continuous awe the entire time. The grandiosity and overall magnitude of what I was seeing out of the plane windows was remarkable and nearly impossible to put into words. It was an amazing experience. The wilderness I saw was so vast and some of the most difficult (and expensive) to access in the entire park system. The views were utterly spectacular and to cap off the best day ever, we were invited to the local Bettles Fourth of July Party, another unforgettable experience. Life in the Last Frontier is truly something else. . . . #gatesofthearctic #gota #gatesofthearcticnationalpark #bettleslodge #explorealaska #thealaskalife #thelastfrontier #visitalaska #alaskaadventures #ilovealaska #travelalaska #alaskalife #wildalaska #alaskasummer #optoutside #forceofnature #goatworthy #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkservice #findyourpark #usnationalparks #americasbestidea #nationalparklife #52hikechallenge #sheisnotlost #mytinyatlas #passionpassport #wanderlustcollective #girlslovetravel #itsalwaysanadventure

One of our favorite park entrances of the 61 national parks is getting a makeover starting next year. Not the majestic Roosevelt Arch itself, but the North Entrance pay stations a little farther up the road. Among other improvements, an additional lane and new kiosk will be added in order to get us all into the park more quickly. It’ll be great to see some of the traffic congestion eliminated, but we’ll still take the time to stop and wander through this incredible gateway that’s been welcoming park visitors for the last 116 years. . . . . . #rooseveltarch #yellowstonenps #yellowstonenationalpark #montana #yellowstonepledge #findyourpark #goparks #nationalpark #ynp #nationalparkgeek #usinterior #radparks #nationalparklife #roadtrip #visitmontana #lastbestplace #montanamoment #bigskycountry #yellowstonenps #usparksandmonuments #americasbestidea #mytinyatlas #ourplanetdaily #seetheworld #nationalparkphotography #nationalparkservice #yellowstone
