The Potomac River roars over rocks and ice in this #winter shot from #greatfalls Park in #virginia. A short drive from downtown #washingtondc, Great Falls and Chesapeake & Ohio Canal National Historical Park on the opposite bank in Maryland offer terrific outdoor recreation. Locals will tell you, it’s home to some of the best views and hiking in the area. Photo @greatfallsparkvanps by National Park Service. #findyourpark#usinterior
I spy... 👁 A turtle who has found his park! 🐢 Have you ever seen anything so cute in all your life? 😍 Sending a HUGE thanks to @mike.j.maguire for capturing this picture-perfect moment and sharing it with us by tagging it to #candocanal! . We have variety of reptiles and amphibians who make their home at the C&O Canal. You are likely to spot turtles in/around the canal basin, and it is common to find them soaking up the sun. Basking in sunlight helps turtles produce the right vitamins for keeping their shells strong, and being cold-blooded, it also helps to regulate their body temperature. If you encounter these guys in the field, please enjoy, but leave them be unless they are in harms way. Thanks again, Mike, and happy exploring everyone!!!
Snow covers the landscape at Crater Lake National Park in Oregon. Taken in October 2017, this photo shows one of the first snowy days of the season at the park. After a bit of hiking through the snow, Daniel Fleischhacker found a spot that seemed perfect with the soft evening light. “Crater Lake is one of the most beautiful National Parks in the U.S. in my opinion. I can't wait to visit this place again,” he says. Photo courtesy of Daniel Fleischhacker (@daniel_landscapes). #usinterior#findyourpark#craterlake#nationalpark#oregon#sunset
Photographer Jose Torres won the Night Sky category of the Share The Experience contest with this incredible shot of the #milkyway at #drytortugas National Park in #florida. Located almost 70 miles west of Key West, the 100-square mile park is mostly open water with seven small islands. Accessible only by boat or seaplane, the park is known for the magnificent Fort Jefferson, picturesque blue waters, great snorkeling and amazing night skies.
