  • “It’s gonna rain.” - Ollie Williams
.
Be weather ready when visiting a park. In the spring and summer, most thunderstorms come in afternoons, but they can occur at any time. Participating in activities in the early morning is a great way to reduce the possibility of encountering severe weather and avoid strenuous activities during the heat of the day.
.
If the weather becomes threatening, find safe shelter immediately. Pay attention to the weather while you are exploring a park. If you start to notice clouds building and getting darker, the wind picking up speed, temperature dropping, or you hear thunder, seek safe shelter.

  • Last night we hosted a Silent Auction to benefit the Yosemite Valley School - a school that is close to our hearts as it is part of our local community, and was also the very school that Michael Adams, Ansel Adams’ son, attended when they lived in Yosemite Valley! It was a great event with lots of wonderful people - thanks to all who attended!

I think you have me confused with someone who builds a dam...
.
Otters are semi-aquatic mammals, equally at home in water and on land. Otters do not build dams as beavers do, but in some areas otters may build their dens within an abandoned beaver dam. Because the dam crosses the river, it is an ideal location for an otter den. You otter see the view.

  • Feeling grateful for National Parks right now, especially being in @rockynps. ⠀
⠀
My life is moving at opposite extremes right now and being here, in these wide open spaces, is exactly the grounding my soul needs. I’ve gotten some exciting news, and some sad news in the past week, and well let’s just say I needed some outdoor soothing. ⠀
⠀
Love your public spaces. ⠀

  • We’ve been delighted to take Henry to many sites in the National Park system, and watch him earn dozens of Junior Ranger badges. We’ve enjoyed seeing the beauty of nature, surrounded ourselves with history, and learned about painting, sculpture and literature. For years I’ve wanted to volunteer for the National Park Service, and I’m finally now doing it. Today I completed my first shift as a docent at Weir Farm and I could not be more proud of my name badge and everything it represents. Best of all, I was able to help a girl work on ha Junior Ranger badge! 💓🎨#americasbestidea #findyourpark #nps #docent #bucketlist

  • Summer may not officially begin for another day, but that’s never stopped me. Summer is a state of mind, I like to say. I live there every day. ⁣
⁣
I sat on my patio last night as the last light was fading. It feels like summer, finally. It’s warm. Light. Summer school is over and my bags are packed to hit the road. ⁣
⁣
The free time is nice. The sunny heat is my favorite kind of weather. But what gets me is the light. The long days. Full of possibilities. And I’m going to go ahead and call it now: this is going to be the best summer ever.
