The Dance   1 comment

Every March, thousands of Sandhill cranes stop in Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve on their way to their northern breeding grounds. The fields and wetlands of Colorado’s San Luis Valley provide excellent habitat for these majestic birds. With the dunes and mountains nearby, they dance and call to each other. It’s one of nature’s great spectacles. Posted on Tumblr by the US Department of the Interior, 3/11/16.

Snowy Sunrise   Leave a comment

It doesn’t get much better than the views found at Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona. With seemingly unlimited vistas to the east and west, it is popular for both sunrise and sunset. This sunrise looks even better with some snow catching the dawn’s early light. Photo by Steve Perry. Posted on Tumblr by the US Department of the Interior, 12/17/15.

Moonrise   Leave a comment

A magical moonrise over Yosemite National Park in California. Matt Walker captured this night shot – yes, it’s a night shot – on Thanksgiving week. It had snowed all day and began clearing around sunset. An hour later, the full moon rose with an intense glow as fog and clouds swirled around Yosemite Valley. “It was an amazing experience having my 10-year-old son next to me watching this unbelievable moonrise,” says Walker.

It’s one of the most beautiful geologic formations in the world. The Wave is a sandstone rock formation located near the Arizona–Utah border, on the slopes of the Coyote Buttes, in the Paria Canyon-Vermilion Cliffs Wilderness, on the Colorado Plateau.
