In celebration of Arbor Day, here is a stunning photo of some of the oldest trees in the world from Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. Photo courtesy of the National Park Service.

Sherpa Fund Print Fundraiser - day three of our one week only print sale to support the Sherpa community that lost loved ones on Everest last week. Please consider purchasing a signed print from www.sherpasfund.org. This image - a climber descends the "Valley of Silence" perched at 22,000 atop the #Khumbu Icefall on Everest's south side - is one of the prints available. Photo: @pedromcbride (Pete McBride): About the Fund: We are ten photographers who have worked extensively with the Sherpa people and feel devastated by this tragic event. For us, it is a moment to ask how we can help our Sherpa friends both in this time of crisis and in the years to come. Not long after I shot this image, Mingma Sherpa plucked me from a crevasse saving my life, so in effort to return the helping hand, we are donating the prints you will see on the site, a selection of our photographs of the Himalayan region and its people, curated by our editors, National Geographic’s Sadie Quarrier and Outside’s Amy Silverman. One-hundred percent of proceeds from this sale (after the cost of printing) will go to the Sherpa community via the nonprofit Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation, which has been working with Sherpa climbers in the Khumbu since 2003. By purchasing a print today, you are helping provide relief to #Sherpa families in crisis, as well as long-term support that transcends this single incident. Thanks for your #support. #everest #help @natgeocreative

Happy Friday. Have some #icebergs! Click the link in our profile for some more mesmerizing images of these giants.

One more amazing tree photo for #ArborDay. Most people know #Redwood National Park in #California as home to the tallest trees on Earth. But the parks also protect vast prairies, oak woodlands, wild riverways, and nearly 40 miles of pristine coastline, all supporting a rich mosaic of wildlife diversity and cultural traditions. Together, the National Park Service and California State Parks manage these lands for the inspiration, enjoyment, and education of all people. Photo: Jessica Watz

Photo by @gordonwiltsie I am honored that this image of the moon rising over Mount Ama Dablam is one of a series of pictures by ten photographers who have donated beautiful prints for a ONE WEEK FLASH FUNDRAISER to benefit the families of Sherpas who were killed in the recent avalanche disaster on Mount Everest - the worst in the mountain's history. Today is Day Three of the sale. Signed prints of any of these are available at www.sherpafund.bigcartel.com and 50% of all proceeds will be distributed directly to families in need via already-existing funds established by the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation (ALCF) and the American Himalayan Foundation (AHF.) The other half will go to long-term community assistance, including the Khumbu Climbing Center operated by ALCF and Everest ER, a clinic at base camp funded by AHF. Ever since I first visited the Khumbu region in 1974 and subsequently returned many times, the inspiration I have received from the remarkable Sherpa people has had a profound impact upon the person that I have become, and I know that many others would say the same. I hope that you can support this effort. Many thanks to Aaron Huey (@argonautphoto), Jenni Lowe from the ALCF, National Geographic and Outside Magazine for help putting the site together. Other photographers include Jimmy Chin, James Balog, Cory Richards, Renan Ozturk, Teru Kuwayama, Pete McBride, Andy Bardo, Robb Kendrick, and Max Lowe.

Take a look at this amazing #lightning display spotted last fall at #Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge in #Colorado. The Refuge is situated at an elevation of 8,200 feet, is located in an intermountain glacial basin in north-central Colorado. The Refuge offers several ways to enjoy the area, including activities such as fishing, hunting, wildlife observation, and photography. Photo Credit: Brandon Jones / @USFWS
