Meet today's Friday Face, Heather. She's one of the many park visitors who not only comes to the park to enjoy nature but also to help keep it clean and enjoyable for the rest of us!
"It would be impossible to share one reason I love this Texas State Park so much. It has so many stand outs from the paved trail for a quick run to the dirt trails for hiking and biking along with enjoying the wildlife found throughout the park. Oh and enjoying a good cup of coffee while sitting at the falls is pretty tough to top. But knowing we're walking on this amazing landscape thanks to a now extinct volcano that helped form the falls that all visitors become enamored with is something really special. All of those are just some reasons I keep coming back and am happy to help pitch in to keep this place litter free."

The Ojito Wilderness is a desert landscape of steep-sided mesas, rocky terraces, retreating escarpments, box canyons, deep meandering arroyos, and austere badlands. Bands of multi-colored shale, sandstone, and limestone draw attention to cliff sides. Occasional badland settings, with their unusual hoodoos (weathered rock in the form of pinnacles, spires, cap rocks, and other unusual forms), accent the landscape. Piñon and juniper are dotted throughout the Wilderness, and rare stands of ponderosa pine can be found tucked into shady recesses. Photo by Sherman Hogue, BLM New Mexico.

What we do goes way back in time.
10 000 years, to be exact, when people followed the retracting ice cape and discovered Northern Norway. The Arctic climate and the never setting sun offered perfect conditions for dense sources of energy to grow and harvest. This is what made our ancestors able to establish some of the greatest settlements in pre-Europe. The knowledge of preserving meat, fish, berries, roots and vegetables empowered them to keep on discovering new grounds, even through a long and harsh arctic winter.
These rich arctic areas are still where we harvest and unfold our lives. It is a long and proud story. The art of preservation is not only our heritage, but also our future. We are dependent on lightweight supplies of dense energy to master the rugged live in the arctic.
For sports, for pleasure and also for hard work. We will never stop discovering new grounds. It’s in our blood. 📷 by @arildheitmannphotography
Winter is once more knocking on our door, bringing a whole new world to explore. With it, the polar night is closing in; only a few hours of daylight throughout the day. Soon there will be close to none. If you want to reach that summit before dark, you have to go fast. But you'll still need that energy... #RealOnTheGo 📷 by @senja365
