I have something similar over my bed. Love it.
I have the ones from the Smoky Mountains ones
Wow I’m jealous! Where’d you get them if you don’t mind me asking?
You should try going with a group of people, it's a lot of fun!
Yes! So much love. Such a fascinating piece of nature. I loved visiting last summer and getting a chance to hear a ranger talk about its history.
From what I remember, there are a few different Native American tribes that have their own histories and cultures surrounding the formation of the tower. One story is that some girls were running away from a bear and climbed on a rock and prayed for help. The rock rose upwards and then the bear scratched the sides of the rock. Then the girls turned into stars. Then there’s the scientific reasons, like it was a volcano or igneous intrusion. What’s cool is that as erosion continues, more of the tower will be exposed!
i have a strange urge to eat mashed potatoes
looks really beautiful but damn hot.
Beautiful, the water looks low though.
That’s why you hike the narrows like OP!
Cool. I got to see this part of Zion not too long ago. A very beautiful park.
... of Utah's Canyonlands National Park.
Chesler Park (in needles district) might be one of the best hikes in the world. It covers so much differing terrain, it has slot canyons, rocks, sand, great views, cool geography, huge fast open areas (if you're into trail running), just everything. Oh, and it's pretty straightforward for a day hike, so no logistics issues. It's one of my favorite places!
Definitely not Needles, Calif. or the Mojave Preserve.
Wish I could nail some campsites tho.. I'd be definitely going
One of my favorite places. I used to travel to Death Valley by motorcycle in January every year.
It's an amazing view, it isn't very often that you have an unobstructed view from 5000ft+ above something. I was very impressed with Death Valley even though we were only there for the day, we will defiantly be going back to spend more time there on a future trip
I rode my bicycle up there last year. One of the best payoffs after a big climb I’ve ever had anywhere. Unreal beautiful. I love Death Valley and need to go back soon!
Lol why not move the camera slightly to the right? The Tetons are beautiful, and Grand Teton NP is a pretty cool place.
Great place but let nature speak for it self and let the saturation slider take a break!
Blasphemy! The Tetons are awesome, but there is literally no place on earth like Yellowstone.
But seriously, glad you had a great time. Such a beautiful region.
Capitol Reef is 2nd only to Zion in my personal ranking of the 5 Utah NPs. Did you get some apple pie from the Gifford House?
Kolob Terrace Rd (different from Kolob Canyon) part of the park is one of my favorite areas, plus it has the highest viewpoints of the park at Lava Point.
Visited Capitol Reef exactly three years ago and loved it. Totally desolate, no one around, and a surprising amount of wildlife. It was a total mind trip heading out to Hanksville after, we just kept looking around like “Where the hell are we?!” very Mars like as you said! Want to go back and do more backcountry adventuring.
I found some pretty quiet hikes in Zion, even in the middle of the summer. You just have to know where to go.
This is really freaking cool! Where do you get these pins?
This is such a great idea! When I was in Moab this past October I mentioned how psyched I was to get "new" stamps in my NPS Passport and bonded with a 12 year old guy who totally felt the same way (I'm a 30+ year old women who goes to a new NP, or two, with my 70+ year old Dad every year)
Awesome! I’ve been collecting pins since I was a kid but I lost my collections and just restarted a few years ago. Eventually I want a big US map and I will pin them on the relative location of te Park. Do you have any plans for your collection in the future? https://m.imgur.com/gallery/Y7v4m
Edit: also what are the first and last ones you have there? I can’t make them out.
I love that case! Did you make it or buy it? I’ve been trying find something swell like yours but I haven’t had any luck
The Panorama Trail coming down from Glacier Point. We took the Four Mile Trail up to Glacier Point and the Panorama down for the best day hike I've ever been on.
Excellent! Where is this taken from?
I got to go one of these days
Did get to see the sunset and rise staying in the campground. A great thing to see. It was nerve racking being near the edge with the wind that day.
These pictures don't do it justice, and I couldn't actually walk out to the point like you did. I hope you got to see the sunset
