It feels so right sometimes to linger under the old blankets a little too long. - The world outside teeters on the brink of winter already. - It's only October, but the cold nights are thin enough they just might shatter before I rise from the comfort of my own private slumber land.

With a little planning, you can capture some amazing moments at national parks. After checking the weather, Eric Neitzel (@tiggerlovesyou) drove 3 hours to Tuolumne Meadows -- the one place in #California’s #Yosemite #NationalPark that’s flat enough for the perfect #sunset. Braving the mosquitoes, he carefully laid down on the meadow grass to try and make sure the beautiful flowers of the meadow were shown as well as the the sunset and Pothole Dome. “For me, laying in the flowers of #TuolumneMeadows taking this picture made me feel like half John Muir and half Ansel Adams.” iPhone photo @yosemitenps courtesy of Eric Neitzel (@tiggerlovesyou). #ShotOniPhone #FindYourPark #USInterior

At #Washington’s #NorthCascades #NationalPark, you can experience a full range of seasons in a single day. That’s what happened to Brian Stowell (@brianstowell) while hiking Heather Maple Pass Loop last week. “Warm and sunny at the start. Wildflowers that made way for autumn colors.

The majestic South Fork of the #SnakeRiver pictured here flows 66 miles across southeastern #Idaho, through high mountain valleys, rugged canyons and broad floodplains to its confluence with the Henry’s Fork near Menan Buttes. Located near some of the world’s best known recreation areas, the South Fork is home to 100+ bird species, moose, deer and other wildlife. And it’s a great place to see fall colors in full bloom!
