Khu vực bảo tồn thiên nhiên quốc gia Glen Canyon, bang Arizona
When visiting #GlenCanyon National Recreation Area in #Arizona, take a short 1.5 mile round-trip hike to see #HorseshoeBend — one of the most photographed and awe-inspiring spots on the #ColoradoRiver. No matter how many times you’ve visited, you’re guaranteed to see something new. The colors of the rocks change throughout the day as shadows move in and out of the canyons and the river shines in different shades of green and blue. We promise, you won’t regret making the trip.

Công viên quốc gia Yellowstone, bang Wyoming, Montana và Idaho
In every season, at every hour, #Yellowstone #NationalPark in #Wyoming is a #stunning and surprising landscape. Remote enough for dark skies to allow the #MilkyWay to shine and featuring steam rising from #hotsprings tinted with colorful bacteria and reflecting the #AuroraBorealis, a night in the park offers enough wonders for a lifetime. @YellowstoneNPS photo courtesy of Bryony Richards (@lifeofbrys). #findyourpark
Vách đá Vermillion, bang Arizona
#VermillionCliffs #NationalMonument in #Arizona swirls the senses with unreal rock formations like #TheWave, pictured here. To protect these colorful geologic features, permits are required to visit this area. If you’re not able to obtain one, don’t worry — you can still explore #WhitePocket nearby, which offers equally spectacular and unique formations. Photo by Bob Wick, @mypubliclands.

A beautiful photo of first light at #Glacier #NationalPark in #Montana. Of the photo, photographer Kevin LeFevre (@sugarconnection) says: "While shooting the #sunrise at Bowman Lake we were graced with this meandering doe. I scrambled to change my camera settings to accommodate the movement and pulled off this solitary photo. A once in a lifetime." While parts of @GlacierNPS are closed because of #ReynoldsCreekFire, most of the park remains open, including Bowman Lake area. Photo courtesy of Kevin LeFevre (@sugarconnection).

A wild #river runs between two jagged #mountains at Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve, creating a doorway to a #wilderness of glacier-carved valleys and aurora-lit night skies. This vast landscape lies north of the #Arctic Circle and has no roads or trails — making for adventurous exploration. Photo by Carl Johnson, #NationalPark Service.

Thác Havasupai, công viên quốc gia Grand Canyon, bang Arizona
#HavasuFalls, which stands nearly 100 feet tall, is a show stopper with its amazing turquoise-blue water. Tucked away in the Grand Canyon (#Arizona) but outside the national park’s boundaries, Havasu Falls is part of the Havasupai Indian Reservation. Tourists from around the world come to Havasupai to see this remote Indian village, the last U.S. mail mule train in the country and the stunningly blue #waterfalls.

Công viên quốc gia Glacier, bang Montana
All day today @Glaciernps is highlighting the TOP 5 things to photograph when visiting the park. No. 5: Night Sky ? Don’t forget that “Half the park is after dark.” If you are lucky enough to be here during a showing of the #northernlights, #LakeMcDonald offers open views to the north. We also have spectacular dark skies for viewing the stars (and tonight's #perseid meteor shower). Check out the head of Lake McDonald, foot of Saint Mary Lake and Logan Pass for great views of the #MilkyWay May through October. Photo by Jacob W. Frank, National Park Service. Thanks for all your questions and comments! We look forward to seeing you when you visit. We have more photo suggestions at go.nps.gov/photography. Be sure to tag your photos with #GlacierNPS and follow us at @glaciernps!

Khu bảo tồn thiên nhiên Bosque Del Apache, bang New Mexico
Thousands of sandhill #cranes are arriving at Bosque del Apache National #WildlifeRefuge in #NewMexico this month to winter in this safe and stunning area. These gorgeous birds can stand four feet tall and have a wingspan greater than six feet. Fascinating to watch, their social behavior includes at least 10 different types of calls, various threatening postures and elaborate dances for everything from joy to courtship. Yesterday marked the start of the world-renowned Festival of the Cranes, an annual event hosted by the refuge. Photo by Kim Hang Dessoliers (www.sharetheexperience.org)

Đại vực kỳ bí trong Công viên quốc gia Gran Canyon, bang Arizona
#ReflectionCanyon is one of the unique wonders in the #Southwest. Located in a remote section of #GlenCanyon National Recreation Area in #Utah, Reflection Canyon offers unparalleled views of the #ColoradoRiver twisting and winding through colorful sandstone cliffs. After the tough hike to reach Reflection Canyon, photographer Wan Shi was rewarded with this spectacular shot. “This has to be the most colorful and surreal scene I have ever seen in American Southwest.” Photo by Wan Shi (www.sharetheexperience.org).
Công viên quốc gia Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, bang Wisconsin
Over thousands of years, #LakeSuperior carved out caves in the sandstone cliffs of the #Wisconsin lakeshore. Today, when conditions are right, you can hike or paddle out and see these remarkable formations clad in snow and ice at #ApostleIslands #NationalLakeshore.

Công viên quốc gia Grand Teton, bang Wyoming
One of the best things about winter at #GrandTeton #NationalPark in #Wyoming: Sunset. Josh Packer (@packtography) spent several hours waiting for the clouds to break over the Tetons on a cold day at Schwabacher's Landing. Right at #sunset, the clouds finally broke — creating some beautiful clouds and reflections. Then to top it off, a beaver leisurely swam right in front of him, making a special moment even more special. Photos of @grandtetonnps by courtesy of Josh Packer (@packtography).
