Happy #NationalEngineersWeek! (Feb 18-24). Meet David Demko, our Park Engineer! 🏗⚙️
“Working for the NPS gives me a peaceful setting to work on a variety of projects and with colleagues from varied backgrounds.” Advice for the youth and students pursuing a career in engineering:
“I encourage students to push themselves in non-math and science subjects even if you know you will be an engineer. Why? Writing, comprehension, and being a well-rounded professional will always help engineers in their job. After the first few years of mainly technical work, good engineers branch out and become managers and leaders that need to work well with many disciplines. So it’s important to excel in a well-balanced curriculum to make a better engineer for a more prosperous career.” (dd) #Engineers #Engineering #HumansOfPointReyes #LearningFromLeaders #PointReyesNPS #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque

Well hello, Winter. Nice of you to finally show up.

Happy #findyourparkfriday to all! We want to shine a little light on @boston_nhp today. Boston National Historical Park provides an AWESOME look at how the United States that we know began to form. Their Junior Ranger book takes visitors on a tour of multiple sites along the Boston Freedom Trail, including the street corner where the Boston Massacre happened. Scenes from your high school history lectures come to life here. We really enjoyed going on board Old Ironsides, the USS Constitution, at Charlestown Navy Yard. Have you visited this historical park? If so, what was your favorite part? Is this where you found your park?!?

Friday's are meant for climbing mountains. Today, I finally summitted my first mountain. Ryan, I won't forget you! There's just something so wonderful about hiking. The higher I get, the further the trail takes me, the larger my smile gets. That surge of adrenaline you get as you look down to see how far you've gone keeps you going, no matter how wheezy you get. I'm thankful for my legs that give me the ability to hike, couldn't have done it without them. I think Ryan and I are gonna be great friends these next 8 months. Although I do have my eyes on some other mountains. ⛰

Mammoth Crater and a crater nearby it, Modoc Crater, erupted somewhere between 30,000-40,000 years ago. The lava flows from these eruptions cover 70% of Lava Beds, as well as a great deal of the basin east of the park. Also many of the lava tube caves are within this flow, so if you enjoy caving here thank Mammoth and Modoc Crater!

The skunk cabbage (Symplocarpus foetidus) is native to eastern North America and gets its name for a pretty straightforward reason - it's stinky! It grows in soft, muddy soil and produces crazy-looking flowers like this one in early spring. 📷: @powellphotography94 found this specimen at Dorey Park.

We've got activities for the scientists and plant lovers in your family year-round. Check out our program guide on our website to see what's coming up this season. 🍄 #sciencefriday #MyViewHRP #henricopark #henrico #optoutside #findyourpark #encuentratuparque

Lake of the Clouds is the deepest point in Carlsbad Cavern at 1,037 feet (316 m) below the surface. Water is abundant throughout Carlsbad Cavern and can easily be seen on the self-guided tours. While fish do not live in these pools, small invertebrates and microbes do. When you visit, do your part to protect these cave pools by not throwing anything into them--even a coin or a rock can hurt the little lifeforms surviving in the water.

If you’re heading out to explore the rich history and landscape of Mesa Verde and can only do one hike, you absolutely MUST join the ranger-led guided hike to the Balcony House. At just a half-mile, this hike won’t win you any long-distance awards, but the route is deceptively tough. You’ll scale down two sets of steep, cliff-side ladders and at one point have to shimmy or slide your way through a 12-foot long tunnel that narrows down to just 18 inches at one point.
.
Those non-claustro / acro phobic hikers who make it will find themselves standing in the middle of an impressive 40-room structure cut into the side of Chapin Mesa, where a park ranger will bring the Ancestral Puebloans who lived in the region from 550 through the 1200s back to life. .
Head to modernhiker.com or click the link in the bio to learn more about this incredible National Park (which pre-dated the National Park Service by a decade!) and find out how to reserve your spot on this hike.

The formations shown in this picture are called draperies. These sheet-like formations are created by water dripping down a sloped ceiling and are often folded. Draperies can be found throughout the Big Room of Carlsbad Cavern and also along the Natural Entrance Trail.

Ever wonder what defines a cave? The National Caves Association defines a cave as “…any cavity in the ground that is large enough that some portion of it will not receive direct sunlight.” Caverns, on the other hand, are defined by the National Caves Association as “…a specific type of cave, naturally formed in soluble rock with the ability to grow speleothems.” While all caverns can be accurately called caves, not all caves are considered caverns. Cavern is typically used to imply immensity and grandeur. 
All of us here certainly believe Carlsbad Cavern meets the criteria of a cavern! We hope you do as well!

In an earlier post, we challenged you to find the cave spider in the picture. Today, we have a similar challenge on a very different scale. Can you find the visitor in this photo of the Big Room? The unbelievable immensity of Carlsbad Cavern is hard to express in images and even harder to express in words. To truly understand the scale of the cave, you simply have to visit it for yourself.

Great day out at Browns Canyon National Monument with @sierraclubco for its third anniversary. President Obama dedicated this monument in 2015 and was the last one designated in Colorado.

A moat and mounds protected the fort from intruders and enemy fire. The moat is at least eight feet deep and now serves as a grave for visitors’ phones since retirement from protective duties.

Puerto Rico's San Cristobal fort is a fascinating step back in time. While we've been here before, we realized after visiting today that we had seen less than half. The sprawling grounds & stunning views of the city & sea make it worth spending an hour or two here.

We hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend! Thanks @theresa_ratermann for sharing your coastal hiking adventure! Couldn’t agree more with your caption! (dd) #FindYourPark #EncuentraTuParque #PointReyesNPS

This corner of the fort took heavy fire during the Battle of Fort Pulaski in April of 1862. You can still find a cannonball lodged in this section of the fort’s wall.

We had to learn where different rooms were located to complete the Junior Ranger book. The park brochure was a huge help! We’ve overlooked this important resource way too many times. Now, which way to the mess hall?!?

This photo came up in my memories for the day! A fun long expo of Daniel Rodriguez and me on a very cold night hike in Bryce Canyon by Chad Butler. So thankful for friends who are willing drive all night to spend a few days somewhere beautiful and geek out with our cameras. Even better when they are willing to hang out at a buffet in Vegas and let me stuff my face long after they are done eating 🐷
