Abandoned historic train tunnels of the original transcontinental railroad above Donner Lake. Built by Chinese labor in the region made famous by doomed settlers near indigenous petroglyphs. So— 1. Do you think they're haunted? And 2. How much would someone have to pay you to spend the night in them? 👻

#UNLIKELYTHRUHIKERS update! We haven't heard from @vanessatakesphotos for awhile since she decided to hop off the PCT, so here's a sweet update!
.
"I've spent some time feeling confused about my relationship to hiking. The trail culture wasn't what I expected it to be, and the competition and macho vibes messed with my head and my heart. I've been working really hard to figure out why I let other people influence my experience so much. I'm lucky enough that I was able to rearrange my plans and accompany my girlfriend, @alleyhector, on a trip she was planning in Europe. She spent most of August biking from France to the Netherlands and back again, and I took the opportunity to put myself outside my comfort zone yet again. I WWOOFed on a farm in France for a couple of weeks and spent a week wandering around Switzerland, which has some of the most gorgeous landscapes I've ever seen. I finally feel like I've got my hiking legs back. Or rather, I've got my hiking heart back. 'Hiking legs' usually refers to the strength and stamina a hiker builds up over the course of a long thru hike, but I don't want to measure my hiking success in daily mileage - I just want to be outside, doing a thing I love. @alleyhector and I just reunited to start our next adventure together: walking 550 miles on the Camino de Santiago! #HikingWithScissors is back in business!" -Vanessa

An interesting day for visiting Santa Cruz Island. The morning was overcast but the afternoon turned out clear and sunny. This is a view from the cliffs I took keeping a safe distance from the edges. The flowers don't need to be so aware of that.

[Swipe ⬅️] As part as #HispanicHeritageMonth I'm working with each of my kids to get their @anzatrailnps junior ranger badges. The online #JuniorRanger program is a fun to imagine being part of the expedition. We live near by lots of parks where the the historical trail goes through, so I get to point it out to my kids all the time.  My daughter is also excited to have caught up to her older brother in the number of badges he has. 💪🏽👧🏽

While we don't get a lot of fall colors in the redwoods, the maple trees will change and add some pops of color. This big leaf maple hasn't really started changing yet, but soon will be a beautiful golden yellow.

Choppy surf.
Choppy surf.
While today is not a safe day to surf with dangerous rip currents and storm surges. Sandy Hook offers some gorgeous mornings to find some waves. Here is Ranger Kris, heading out before work to catch some waves.

The kids and I finally worked on making displays for their @nationalparkservice #juniorranger badges and patches. They earned a Tenn-Tom US Army Corps of Engineers Jr Ranger badge yesterday. My daughter also earned a Junior Archeologist badge last week.  These panels represent a ton of #roadtrips some longer than others, and a lot of learning about the USA. (some NPS sites give badges, some do patches and the Tuskegee Airmen #NPS did wings) @goparks :

1777, Septr 19, Fryday: "At 3 this Morning was waked by Mr. Lovell, and told that the members of Congress were gone, some of them, a little after Midnight. That there was a letter from Mr. Hamilton Aid de Camp to the General, informing that the Enemy were in Possession of the Fords and the Boats, and had in their Power to be in Philadelphia, before Morning, and that if Congress was not removed they had not a Moment to loose."

Though Mr. Adams spelled the day wrong, "Fryday", if he didn't get out of town soon, his goose would most certainly be cooked!

“Every historian discloses a new horizon.” - George Sand

Ed Bearss, noted (Retired) National Park Service Chief Historian, legend, and one of the stars of the History Channel’s “Civil War Journal”, brought his 2017 “Civil War Seminars & Tours” through Central New York recently. His tour stops included the new Harriet Tubman National Historical Park in Auburn, NY, the Women’s Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls, NY, and Fort Stanwix National Monument in Rome, NY. Ed turned 95 years old this past June. He’s an amazing resource and a very nice fellow. It was an honor to have him visit the sites! Ed is also a Marine Corps Veteran and he served in WW2. This photograph was taken during his visit to the Harriet Tubman site. Happy belated Birthday Ed Bearss!....(📷 - RPR)

"I didn't always feel like an Unlikely Hiker. I grew up in rural Wisconsin. I've been fishing, hunting, shooting, hiking and birdwatching for as long as I can remember. I've even worked as a Wildlife Biologist, out in the fields and forests managing public recreation lands. There was a time in my life when I looked and acted precisely like a person you'd see on the cover of Outdoor Life magazine. So what exactly makes me an Unlikely Hiker? I'm a queer transgender woman. When I transitioned, I wondered if I still had a place in the outdoors, sports and activities I enjoyed. I've never seen anyone like myself, my authentic self, represented in outdoor media or advertising, nor have I met anyone like me out on the trails. I decided to keep doing all the activities I love despite the lack of visibility, yet there are new anxieties and concerns. There are times when I'm on a remote trail or camping in a secluded spot in the woods that I feel a vulnerability I didn't feel before transition. But I want others like me, who are queer, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and especially transgender, to know they have a place and a community outdoors." -Natalie / @natmiller888

Black Eyed Susans are peaking in the park. They generally appear in late summer or early autumn.  These sun loving plants are flowering along the multi-use path in Sandy Hook.  As you ride through the park enjoy these flowers along the way.

Today is Plover Appreciation Day! 
In Point Reyes, biologists monitor and manage Western Snowy Plovers. This includes color banding newborn chicks, which helps us monitor survival, movement, and breeding success in the population. This year's breeding season recently ended, resulting in 23 fledglings or juveniles from 46 nests! These included 9 fledglings from Limantour Beach, where plovers have nested for the third year in a row after 12 years of absence. 
Thank you for respecting the beach closure and leash laws to help in protecting nesting snowy plovers! 📷Matt Lau/NPS. (sc)

The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness

“Moonlight is sculpture; sunlight is painting.” ― Nathaniel Hawthorne

If Hawthorne is correct in his comparison, then take a walk through the moonlit sculpture gardens along the Mohawk River trail or the Erie Canal trail near Fort Stanwix. Remember, “Half the park is after dark”. Enjoy your night skies…(📷 - RPR)

That feeling when you try to be fashionably late to the party, but you’re just late-late and all the good snacks are gone.

________________________________________________________ Here's my last Eclipse photo for awhile, I still want a sequenced panoramic but it'll take me awhile to figure out photoshop. I've been at this for 3 years and I've yet to touch Photoshop but I need to learn sooner than later! But look back at my other two Eclipse photos. What do y'all prefer: the cooler blue temp or the warm sun temp? I couldn't decide so I had to do both! ________________________________________________________ #FindYourPark #Parks101 #GoParks
