Waking up in the Grey Whale (aka our Airstream) and seeing actual grey whales (and orcas!) from our windows led to a fantastic morning of whale-watching from our campsite. Seeing a half-dozen grey whales and 2 orcas eating their breakfast just off the shore for two hours while eating my own made this perfect campsite my favorite campsite of all time. #parksonwheels #ilovemylife

🎧I couldn't tell you honey, I don't know, where I'm going but I've got to go. Cause every turn reveals some other road, and I'm a traveler 🎤#summervacation #roadtrip #summeroftravel #nationalparklife #travel #travelphotography #grandtetons #gtnp #glaciernationalpark #glaciernps #glac #montana #badlands #badlandsnationalpark #yellowstonenationalpark #ynp #blackhills #visitsd #seattle #olympic #olympicnationalpark

Diamond in the Rough
As @thenationalparksgirl was enjoying her soak in the hot spring, the rising sun broke through the limbs of the trees above and struck this one little flower I found. And just like that, the sun rose even higher and the fleeting spotlight was gone.

A favorite quote from a favorite author: "It has always been a happy thought to me that the creek runs on all night, new every minute, whether I wish it or know it or care, as a closed book on a shelf continues to whisper to itself its own inexhaustible tale." -Annie Dillard

Looking forward to some epic early-fall sunsets in Shenandoah National Park this weekend! This is a shot from last year, a phenomenal view from Brown Mountain Overlook on Skyline Drive.

Read this morning that Yosemite had some snowfall last night ❄️! Bring on the cold weather (and low fog pls) 😂

Visited Yosemite a night ago and the smoke was so dense that you could only see the silhouette of the valley at tunnel view 😌

This was from @teensyfit, @jimbotron and I's recent trip to #bigbend, and it was well worth the 8-hour drive from #austin. We're already talking about going back.

Throwback Trail Thursday!! A view of Sinopah Mountain from the Dawson Pass Trail in the Two Medicine Lake area of Glacier National Park in Montana. The early portions of the hike passes through an area thick with ferns, thimbleberries and huckleberries. The pass is named after Thomas Dawson, a Blackfoot descendent and a guide during the early days of Glacier National Park. Dawson's Blackfoot name was Little Chief, or Inuxina. The pass, therefore, is called Inuxina ozitamisohpi in the Blackfeet language. Thomas was the son of Andrew Dawson, an official of the American Fur Company at Fort Benton. Photo taken on June 22, 2016.

In places like this you can only visit by tour group, I'll often linger long enough to catch a crowd free shot like this. The park service has ladders to access Balcony House, but the people who lived here had to make a series of climbing moves to access it that served kind of like a password. Then, for some not completely understood reason, all these dwellings were abandoned. What's left is a reminder of how simply people lived in the distant past in the places that we now call home."

"In a way that had no parallel in the national experience, the sequoias had become a catalyst for public and government action. Even as logging continued in some of the groves, the Big Trees of California had achieved an unprecedented status among American trees. For many, they had now become something special - objects of veneration, sacred in their own unique way.
They'd become American icons."
-from "King Sequoia" by William C. Tweed

I was already in love with these behemoth trees, a love first sparked when I visited as a child, then rekindled when we walked among them for three days earlier this summer, and now I can't put this book down. I never knew the immense influence that sequoia trees had in the creation of America's national parks system. And I'm also learning that national parks (and national forests and monuments, as the current controversy entails) are just as often created to make it easier for people to enjoy these natural wonders as they are named to protect those wonders from human exploitation and destruction.
How someone could look at a place like Yosemite Valley, or a tree like these titan sequoias (or an otherworldly desert like Bears Ears), and see nothing but potential profit, I'll never understand. But humans are all too often driven by dollar signs more than by their hearts. 
And that breaks mine.
