In Hiding


Photo by @pedromcbride (Pete McBride) / A heavy storm creates a powerful light show on the north rim of the #grandcanyon. Opening the @natgeo speaker series next wed. in DC with #chasingrivers -- stories and imagery about the rivers that help sculpt geography like this.

The alpine landscape of the the North Cascades #NationalPark in Washington beckons this time of year. #NorthCascades (@ncascadesnps) is home to jagged peaks crowned by more than 300 glaciers -- that's more glaciers than any other park in the lower 48 states.

The sun peaks over the horizon, illuminating the #Powderhorn Wilderness in #Colorado. With a rugged, glacier-carved landscape, the #Wilderness includes two high-elevation plateaus that allow for views of the San Juan Mountains. Photo by Bob Wick, BLM (@mypubliclands).

Photo // @jimmy_chin The iconic Teton skyline gets a lot of attention from the valley floor. As a climber, you get to see it up close and personal. @conrad_anker taking a closer look at the upper left skyline of the Grand Teton on the Gold Wall variation of the Exum Ridge. #jacksonhole #jimmypix @thephotosociety

Photograph by @paulnicklen for @natgeo. @sea_legacy. During the fall months and while they wait for the sea ice to freeze, polar bears perform mock battles. These skills that they gain from these matches will come in handy in the spring when they fight for real for the right to breed. The sea ice is freezing later each fall and melting earlier each spring causing the bears to have less time on the ice eating seals, their primary food source. #polarbear #beauty #nature #wildlife #adventure #climatereality #climatechange @natgeocreative @thephotosociety

This time of year, flights of sandhill cranes arrive daily to the Bosque del Apache National #Wildlife Refuge, which means “Woods of the Apache.” Situated between the Chupadera Mountains and the San Pascual Mountains in #NewMexico, the 57,331-acre refuge has become a critical home for waterfowl that migrate here every winter. Tomorrow, explore the “Woods of the Apache” -- and other #refuges -- with free entrance to all national wildlife refuges. Visit www.fws.gov/refuges to find one near you!
