LOVE the Hoh Rainforest. Purely magical.  #repost @olympic_nps (@get_repost) ・・・ . While some areas, like the Sol Duc valley and around Lake Crescent, may look and feel like a temperate rainforest, they technically are not. . So what makes a temperate rainforest a temperate rainforest? . Well, of course, rain. Not just a little rain, but a lot of rain. The west coast valleys average 140 inches annually (that's over 11 feet!)! . Large old-growth trees like Sitka spruce and western hemlock. Some of these trees are over 200 feet tall and can live over 500 years! . Dead wood. These coastal temperate rainforest valleys produce the largest accumulation of living or once-living matter on the planet, surpassing even the tropical rainforest! . Trees that fall down and are colonized by mosses and seedlings are called nurse logs. These fallen trees clear the way for new growth and provide an advantage for seedlings as only one in 10,000 survive to become grown trees. . Plant that grow upon plants are called epiphytes. There are more than 130 species of mosses, lichens, liverworts and ferns in the rainforest that use tree limbs as props without causing harm to the tree. . All this, plus mild temperatures make up a temperate rainforest. . The main rainforest valleys in the park are found on the westside of the park in the Hoh, the Queets, and the Quinault valleys (named after the rivers and the native people). . Now you know, Ranger Megan 📷 Personal Photo 📷 .

The Liberty Bell is an iconic symbol of #americanindependence + Cast at London's Whitechapel Bell Foundry, the bell arrived in Philadelphia in August 1752. Because the metal was too brittle, it cracked during a test strike and had to be recast twice. After the British invasion of Philadelphia, the bell was hidden in a church in present day #allentown until it could be safely returned to the State House. + As far as Independence Hall, it is the building where both the United States Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were debated and adopted. It is now the centerpiece of the Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. + #philly is chock-full of history. We were in & out of the city pretty fast but #historybuffs could easily spend a handful of days there soaking up all the #livinghistory sites & info. + What do you think of when you think of Philly? #cheesesteaks? Liberty Bell? Independence Hall? Chinatown? Museum of Art (you know, Rocky)? + + + + + #neverstopexploring #findyourpark #revolutionarywar #discoverphl #visitphilly #nationalparkgeek #nationalparklife #nationalparkservice #nationalhistoricalpark #nationalhistoricpark #nationalparks #nationalpark #nps #georgewashington #lifelonglearner #roadschooling #pennsylvaniaisbeautiful #explorepa #phillyhistory #independencehall #libertybell #meetphilly #ourphilly #historicphilly
Looking toward the exit of Coronado Cave at @coronado_nps in southern #arizona. The cave may have been used by humans as a shelter and hideout by middle archaic people (up to 8,000 years ago) and more recently by the Chiricahua Apache and other Apache peoples, Mexican and European miners, and settlers. The #cave is now one of the few open, undeveloped caves in southern Arizona.  #az #azhistory #spreadthehistory #historygirl #findyourpark #travelblog #travelblogger #blog #blogger #exploreaz #history #nationalparkservice #goparks #nps #nps102 #nationalparkgeek #explore #nationalpark #wnpa1938 #optoutside #coronado #coronadocave #coronadonationalmemorial #cochisecounty
What a difference a year makes. First two photos are from February 2018. Photos 2&3 were taken from nearly the same spot over a year apart(wish I could say on purpose). Another successful project, nice job crew. #nps #oldvsnew #tybee #historicpreservationtrainingcenter

My absolute favorite trail in the Santa Monica Mountains.  The most rewarding, and diverse trail out here. ⛰ • • • 8.5 miles, 5,500 elevation gain, riparian areas, oak woodlands, chaparral, and coastal sage communities. 🌳🌎

An absolutely stunning shot of Grand Prismatic Spring. Protect Yellowstone. Protect Parks.
One second after shooting this video I realized that I was now going to be following a horse carriage up the one lane Blue Ridge Parkway.
Life goes on, it finds a way, even in the valley of death.
Yesterday I saw a grizzly through a scope and was beyond excited. Just to be in the mere range of a grizzly is as magical as I thought it’d be. Then today, I got up close with not one or two, but three of these massive beauties. ✨🐻✨ • • •#yellowstone #grizzlybear #hike #explore #nps #yellowstonenationalpark #roadtrip #wyoming #montana #bearcountry
“Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.” - President Harry S. Truman⁣ ⁣Memorial Day is a special time to remember the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in our nation’s Armed Forces, and honor those who served.⁣ ⁣.⁣ ⁣The National Park Service (NPS) preserves and shares the stories of the American military and provides opportunities for our military community to connect to the beautiful landscapes and important history they defend. National parks and the military have strong ties going back to the establishment of Yellowstone as the world’s first national park in 1872. More at www.nps.gov/subjects/military/index.htm⁣ ⁣.⁣ ⁣We wish all of you a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend, and hope it includes a visit to an NPS site or other public lands.

We had a quick spring snow dusting along the fire road towards Williams, OR. The sun is out and the snow is melted! Come get your spring on up here at Oregon Caves where the cave is always cool and spring is blooming on the monument! - - #pnw #snow #douglasfir #orca #nps #nature

Glacier National Park in Montana protects some of the most visually stunning mountain terrain anywhere, with giant mountain peaks, above tree-line alpine terrain and glacier fed lakes feeding alpine to valley length waterfalls. Come check it out for yourself! 🌄⁣ 📷: @juliemcphersonphotography

Blackberry flowers are so bright just as the sun goes down, they should be ready for picking in 2-4 weeks. 🍓 We are starting to get strawberries, but since this is our plants first season they’re taking a little longer than fully established plants. We will keep you updated as always!  Open 10-7 daily with fresh picked asparagus, succulent arrangements, and the following potted plants: • Tomatoes • Peppers • Cucumbers (5 varieties) • Spaghetti Squash • Acorn Squash • Zucchini • Strawberry • Raspberry • Horseradish • Fennel • Spearmint • Peppermint • Chives  Location: @assateaguefarm Address: 11832 Assateague Rd Berlin MD 21811 www.AssateagueFarm.com
Birmingham Civil Rights Institute didn't have a sticker since it just became a National Monument in 2017 so I made my own out of 2 postcards I bought at the gift shop. It did have the stamp for my book though!! 👍✌❤ #nationalparkpassport  #birminghamcivilrightsinstitute  #nps #obama #history

@sunflowerstranger ・・・ Thankful to finally see a blue sky and some of my favorite crisp mountain faces. It’s been pretty rainy since we arrived in Glacier, but it will all be worth it if it means a superbloom season. Here’s to hoping that this moody weather brings plenty of wildflowers, gushing waterfalls, and a fire free summer 🌺 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Featured Tag | #glaciernationalpark ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #glaciernps #exploreglacier #montana #bigskycountry #montanalife #montanamoment #visitmt #visitmontana #socality #montanalove #lastbestplace  #montanagram #nationalparks  #nationalparkservice #nationalparkusa #findyourpark #exploretocreate #passionpassport  #ig_naturelovers #nps #instagram #neverstopexploring #ourplanetdaily  #instatravel #instapassport #igtravel •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••🌲

Gorgeous views of Hallet Peak, Tyndall Glacier, and Flattop Mountain from Dream Lake. 😍 This was also where we witnessed an avalanche coming down a couloir adjacent to the one we had been planning to climb the following day. #dreamlake #rockymountains #rockymountainnationalpark #nps #findyourpark
