A Fresh Beginning   Leave a comment

An eagle flies through a rainbow as a storm clears one of the many small islands on Lake Vermilion. The fifth largest lake in Minnesota, Lake Vermilion contains over 75 small public land islands covered with birch, pine and spruce. Some of the islands have boat-in campsites, and many are only large enough for one site, ensuring that you can have an entire island to yourself! The Bureau of Land Management works with the Bois Forte Band of Ojibwe (also referred to as Chippewa) to protect traditional-use areas and cultural sites on the islands. The lake is popular for fishing and contains a diversity of species including largemouth bass, muskellunge, northern pike and perch. Photo by Bob Wick, Bureau of Land Management.

The Moose & The Rainbow   Leave a comment

You never know what you’ll see at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. Emerging from cover after a storm, Ron Hazeloop chased a rainbow to Spruce Lake and just happened to catch a large bull moose standing in the water. Snapping the photo, he called it “a magical moment.” Photo by Ron Hazeloop. Posted on Tumblr by the US Department of the Interior, 8/12/17.

Oh, That Rainbow   Leave a comment

Summer at Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve in Alaska is short but sweet. Vibrant colors radiate during long days and caribou, bears, wolves, muskox and fox roam the landscape past mountains and rivers yet to be named. With no roads or trails, the remote park demands visitors to be self-sufficient. The beauty and solitude is their reward. Photo by National Park Service.

145 Years Ago   Leave a comment

145 years ago this week, the world’s first national park, Yellowstone National Park, was created. For anyone who has visited this incredible land of fire and ice and marveled at the amazing wildlife and unique geologic features, there’s little doubt why Yellowstone is considered one of our nation’s greatest treasures. Last year, 4 million visitors saw what all of the fuss is about. When are you going? Photo by Michael Hardridge. Posted on Tumblr by the US Department of the Interior, 3/1/17.

Sun Dog   1 comment

A sun dog (meteorological name: parhelion), also known as a mock sun, or phantom sun, is an atmospheric phenomenon that typically consists of a bright spot to the left and/or right of the sun. Sun dogs are a member of a large family of atmospheric halos, created by light interacting with ice crystals in the atmosphere. Photo by: Rick Bohn/USFWS.
