National Park Photos

I thought people posted lots of pictures of Gatlinburg and the Smoky Mountains until I checked out how many pictures are posted of the National Parks on Flickr.com. It comes to more than 87,000 photos. Below you will find pictures from Acadia National Park, Crater Lake, Grand Canyon, Grand Teton, The Great Smoky Mountains, Mount Ranier National Park, Pertified Forest, Rocky Mountain National Park, Yellowstone, Yosemite and many more parks. Enjoy the incredible scenery of our country throught these beautiful pictures of our National Parks. And I hope you get to vacation in one or all of these parks if you haven’t had the chance.

    A Stormy Denali Sunrise

    Don't let the beginning of the work week feel stormy. Just think of your favorite national park to make things all sunny again. Ok, insert eye roll emoji, if you want, but truthfully, whenever I used to feel a little cranky at work, I'd start planning my next national park vacation and things wouldn't look so bad, then.

    This image was captured on a stormy morning that turned out beautifully sunny later that day, in Denali National Park & Preserve. I was staying for 4 days at a place called Camp Denali, which is near the end of the park road. The main common building overlooks this lovely little body of water called Nugget Pond, and I was out there every morning, capturing the many different faces of the pond, the landscape, the Alaska Range and, of course, Denali.

    Nearness of Solace

    “Space has a spiritual equivalent and can heal what is divided and burdensome in us.”
    ~Gretel Ehrlich, The Solace of Open Spaces

    Why do I travel?
    There are three parts to this answer, each of which on its own, could be a complete response depending on the reader's own experience.

    First, I travel to find my expressions… my art. Art, in its barest form, is our soul’s response to all that churn us. Question us. Make us wonder and contemplate. Truest art – Gretel Ehrlich argued and I humbly concur – would have the same qualities as earth. They would weather harshness and time, hide their deepest message for those with the tenderest light, allow the wind to wipe out its frivolities, and be obtuse and worthless to the vain and the less experienced. From my travels, I learned another important aspect of art: it must be manifested – just as mountains stand and rivers flow – irrespective of having patrons or appreciation. It is purely an assertion of being alive, which transcends the medium of expression and is bounded by no limits… a miniature replica of open spaces that kindles it genesis in the first place.

    Second, I travel for my son. I have often wondered, what would I want to leave behind with Rishabh when my impermanence materializes? Not riches, nor stories… he can earn them on his own. I rather leave him with lessons that come our way during our travels. Like waterfalls, we must embrace unavoidable falls in life with grace. Like butterflies, we must explore and migrate to the unknown following our instincts. Most importantly, like Saguaros and Joshua-s, we must endure harshness and despair, because they – as Ehrlich pointed out – empty out into an unquenchable appetite for life.

    Third, I travel to find solace. After losing her dearest one to an incurable disease, Ehrlich – a former urbanite, found her solace in nature and wrote 'The Solace of Open Space'. Stuck to my griefs, I tend to forget that life is a continuous ceremony of seasons, where – as Ehrlich puts it – “the paradox is exquisite.” New leaves of spring must fall in autumn so that emptiness may harbor hopes of another spring. In Hawai’i, I saw first-hand how the fragile land endures great loss when lava erupts from volcanoes and ruin everything in its path. But, punctuating the devastation, I also saw life protruding tenderly in those jagged lava rocks as soft seedlings. In Ehrlich’s words, ”to be tough is to be fragile; to be tender is to be truly fierce.” Out in raw wind under the warming sun, I have come to realize that my griefs are not the end of me; instead my pains and losses are, in her words, an odd kind of fullness. To quote Ehrlich again, “True solace is finding none, which is to say, it is everywhere.”

    So, I travel. As often as I can. As far and as wide as I can.

    Early Morning Lake Louise

    If you want to see Lake Louise, you have to get there very early to beat the crowds, but if you are there too early then the Victoria Glacier may be hidden in the clouds.

    An email from some Aussie friends reminded me we were there three years ago when they visited the Canadian Rockies.

    Morton National Park is the traditional Country of the Yuin people. Several hundred Aboriginal sites have been recorded here and there are likely many more. The park's imposing mountains, particularly Didthul, are particularly significant in Aboriginal mythology, as is the majestic Fitzroy Falls. The park's plateau and surrounding country also contain sites of great importance to Aboriginal people, whose occupation of the area dates back over 20,000 years. (Words courtesy of the NSW NPWS)

    Minning Low

    We walked along the High Peak Trail to the top of the hill in the distance called Minning Low to investigate the Neolithic chambered tomb and two Bronze Age bowl barrows. Never been up there before so it was quite exciting.

    The High Peak Railway line first opened in 1831 and was mainly designed to carry minerals and goods between Cromford Canal and the Peak Forest Canal. Following the closure of the line, the Peak District National Park bought the route in 1971 and turned it into a traffic free trail for walkers and cyclists. The Trail has some very serious (hand built) embankments in place - wonder how many men had to graft hard to build them. Mind boggling to think about!!

    The High Peak Trail runs for 17 miles from Dowlow near Buxton to High Peak Junction at Cromford.

    Petrified Forest National Park

    This image was taken along the Crystal Forest Trail. The loop is about a mile long and very easy to walk through with old legs like mine. The whole trail was blanketed with petrified wood like this view. It was so cool to walk along these ancient tree trunks.

    The geology has changed drastically from the time period when these trees formed a forest. The land has raised around 5,000 feet and the river plain dried up. Millions of years later, the trees have reappeared with erosion happening in the desert.

    This park is off of Highway 40 in Arizona. If you ever have some extra time when driving through the area, this is an excellent side trip for the whole family.
