“John, who is she? Who is she, John? Bugling just for me, huh? Answer me, John!!!”⁣ ⁣ The elk rut is a time when male elk, or bulls, vie for the hearts of their female counterparts, known as cows. The peak of elk rut in Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park generally lasts from mid-September to mid-October, although it is often possible to hear elk bugling into November. The scene of tens to hundreds of elk in one location, flanked by spectacular mountain scenery and fall colors, is hard for most folks to resist. The sounds of bull elk bugling add to the spectacle. Listen and watch from a safe distance. Never imitate an elk call or bugle during the rut. This can endanger you and the elk.⁣ ⁣ Image: Two female elk surround a male elk during past rutting season at @rockynps.

Located about 90 minutes from Yosemite (or about 3 hours from the valley floor), Devils Postpile National Monument is home to the 101-foot high Rainbow Falls, pristine mountain scenery and the Devils Postpile formation — a rare geologic sight of columnar basalt. Whether you like hiking, fishing, biking or horseback riding, there is something for you at @devilspostpilenps. ⁣ ⁣ We love exploring parks that may be a bit off the beaten path. They can be a great option for travelers looking for all the beauty of nature, hiking trails, and rich history, with fewer crowds and lines. ⁣what are some parks you’ve discovered on your travels? ⁣ Image: Rainbow forms in the mist of Rainbow Falls at Devils Postpile by Kat Connor (www.sharetheexperience.org⁣ ⁣ #PlanLikeAParkRanger #devilspostpile #california #waterfall #rainbow

Keep eyes on the trail and head out of your Apps...⁣ ⁣ Your safety is your responsibility. When visiting a park, we want your adventures to be fun and safe. ⁣ ⁣ ⛰ Be careful and watch where you are walking, especially on slippery areas, near cliffs, or on uneven terrain. ⁣ ⁣ 🌲 Keep your head up and avoid looking down at a device while on the move. Trees can come out of nowhere. Shady. ⁣ ⁣ 🐐 Try to stick to dry paths and solid rock areas with good footing. Channel your inner mountain goat and avoid baaaad situations. ⁣ ⁣ 👥 It’s often safer to hike with a companion, but if you prefer go solo, or you just need a bit of space from your bestie, (Don’t worry, you’re still friends. They know too much.) take extra measures to ensure that you’re prepared, such as leaving a trip plan. ⁣ ⁣ Image: A visitor stands beneath towering redwoods at California’s Muir Woods National Monument.⁣ Muir Woods is managed part of @goldengatenps and is located 12 miles north of San Francisco. ⁣ #nationalparkservice #muirwoods #redwoods #goldengate #treesofinstagram #safetyfirst #travel

The Perseid Meteor Shower is underway! ☄️⁣ ⁣ Meteor showers are periodic celestial events often caused by a trail of icy, rocky debris left behind by a comet. As Earth travels through this cosmic debris, small particles burn up in the atmosphere at tremendous speeds, causing a streak of light we call a meteor or "shooting star." The Perseids are a popular meteor shower in the Northern Hemisphere since it produces a high rate of meteors and occurs during warmer summer nights. This year is favorable as well since the moon will have little interference.⁣ For those of you up between midnight and dawn, head outside and look up! Can we guarantee you’ll see them from your location? Nope. But hey, at least your out trying new things. Don’t forget your telescope. And pants. ⁣ A good way to view a meteor shower is to choose a dark location away from ambient light, sit or lean back, and soak in a wide view of the sky. If you’re in a park, please take extra precaution while night driving, hiking or camping, and prepare properly. ⁣ ⁣ Image: The clear dark skies of the Smokies serve as the perfect canvas upon which to watch the Perseid meteor shower. @greatsmokynps /NPS⁣ ⁣ #persiedmeteorshower #greatsmokymountainsnationalpark #tennessee #northcarolina #nationalparkservice #space

That’s one fluffy cow. Keep driving…⁣ ⁣ Hey @TSA! Thanks for the question about pets! The National Park Service preserves many special places for visitors to enjoy—even with your furry family members. As each park has a unique experience for you, they each offer different experiences with your pet. Pets are welcome in developed areas, on many trails and campgrounds, and in some lodging facilities. Does that mean you can bring your pet anywhere? No. If the activities you have planned for your visit do not allow for pets or are unsafe, consider leaving them at home. Before you travel, check park websites, or call ahead for park-specific information to help plan the best visit with your pet. If you do bring a pet on your trip, make sure to follow the B.A.R.K. Ranger code. This code helps protect you, your pet, and the park stay safe while you are here.  ⁣ ⁣ 🐕 Bag your pet’s waste ⁣ ⁣ Scoop the poop. Pet feces is not a natural fertilizer. Additionally, stepping in poop left behind by pet owners can be an unpleasant experience for other visitors and wildlife! ⁣ ⁣ 🐕 Always leash your pet ⁣ ⁣ Pets must always be on a leash. Unleashed pets can stress or injure wildlife, scare other visitors, and are more likely to have a dangerous encounter.  ⁣ ⁣ 🐕 Respect wildlife ⁣ ⁣ Avoid ruff moments. A respectful pet keeps clear of wildlife, stays on trails and out of wildlife’s natural habitats. Always stay a safe distance from any wildlife you may encounter on your visit. ⁣ ⁣ 🐕 Know where you can go ⁣ ⁣ Plan ahead and know where you can take your pet. Do not leave your pet unattended anywhere in the park or left alone in a hot vehicle if you cannot take them with you. ⁣ Learn more pet tips at nps.gov/pets ⁣  ⁣ Image: A dog looking out a car window at a passing bison at Grand Teton.

Hey, Bob and Bob. It's Bob. There are other trees, you know?⁣ ⁣ Fun fact. Most bobcats don’t go by “Bob.” Some insist on “Robert.” Others prefer, “meow, mrrrrrrrrrrawr, e-e-e-e-e-e, awr, hiiiiiiiiiss, mEEEwr, aaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!”⁣ ⁣ The bobcat (Lynx rufus) is the most common wildcat in North America. However, bobcats are elusive and rarely seen across their range. This is due to their preference for finding cover wherever they live. Bobcats are also excellent climbers and will climb trees to rest, chase prey, or purrhaps to escape predators. ⁣ ⁣ Image: Three bobcats create a feline “purramid” within the branches of a tree at @bigbendnps, Texas.

“If you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” – Dolly Parton 🌈⁣ ⁣ A little rain may cool you off, but If you are outdoors and hear thunder, get to a safe location like inside a building or inside a vehicle (covered wagon not recommended) with a hard metal top. If you are outside with no safe shelter nearby, immediately get off elevated areas, never lie flat on the ground, never shelter under an isolated tree, never use a cliff or overhang as shelter, avoid concrete, put off fording the river, don’t worry about a broken axel, and stop dissing Terry. ⁣Focus! ⁣ Remember, from nine to five, and really every other time, your safety is your responsibility. ⁣Be safe out there. Then enjoy the rainbow! ⁣ Image: A double rainbow appears in the sky over a covered wagon next to Bent’s Old Fort in Colorado. ⁣ ⁣ #bentsoldfort #colorado #rainbow #thunderstorm #nationalpark

'Til the ‘lambslide’ brought me down…⁣ ⁣ Careful up there. Ewe got this. From a young age, Bighorn sheep are good climbers. Their hooves have a hard outside rim used for digging into the ground or cutting into snow or ice. The hooves are split and can pinch and hold rocks somewhat like clothespins. They also have claws higher up on the foot that act like brakes if the sheep starts to slide on loose rock or slippery surfaces. ⁣ ⁣ Image: One bighorn sheep ewe is standing with three lambs on slanted terrain at @yellowstonenps.

“I want to own a decommissioned lighthouse. And I want to live at the top...” - Stanley Hudson ⁣ ⁣ It’s National Lighthouse Day! There are few landscapes as picturesque as a lighthouse along a coast. But the quiet postcard image belies a dramatic history, one filled with heroism and adversity. National parks along both coasts and the shores of our Great Lakes tell these stories with lighthouses, lifesaving stations, artifacts, and exhibits. They remind us of our nation’s maritime history and of the families and individuals who braved the elements to offer safe passage and save lives.⁣ ⁣ What lighthouses have you visited?⁣ ⁣ Image: Protecting mariners in an area known as the “Graveyard of the Atlantic,” the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse at @capehatterasnps in North Carolina was built in 1870 and is known for its distinctive spiral black and white paint pattern.⁣ Photo by Stacy Abbott (www.sharetheexperience.org) ⁣ #lighthouses #northcarolina #capehatteras #lighthousesofinstagram #capehatteraslighthouse #NationalLighthouseDay

Current relationship status: Caught dinner for two. Ate both. ⁣ ⁣ You gotta eat. Bears are generally solitary creatures anyway, but they predictably congregate around high quality food sources. (Ah…I see you’re having the salmon too?”) Right now, eating is the number one goal as bears begin to bulk up for the long winter months. During the peak of the salmon migration in July and August, bears will fish for salmon all along the Brooks River, but bears will be especially concentrated at Brooks Falls. The falls create a temporary barrier to migrating salmon which gives some bears the opportunity to catch many fish with little effort. What a catch! Also, what a catch! ⁣ ⁣ Want to watch the bears fish? You don’t have to come all the way to Alaska’s Katmai National Park & Preserve to enjoy the bear activity here. You can do so at home via the eight live streaming cameras posted around Brooks Camp. Start watching at explore.org/livecams⁣ ⁣ Image: I caught this with my bear hands. A bear standing upright in water dines on a fish. /D. Kopshever⁣ ⁣ #lunch #relationshipgoals #bear #Alaska #katmainationalpark

At national parks, you don’t pet bison. Bison pet you. (If you get too close.)⁣ ⁣ Bison are the largest mammal in North America. Male bison (called bulls) weigh up to 2,000 pounds and stand 6 feet tall, while females (called cows) weigh up to 1,000 pounds and reach a height of 4-5 feet.⁣ ⁣ Moody is my middle name. You can judge a bison’s mood by its tail. When it hangs down and switches naturally, the bison is usually calm. If the tail is standing straight up, watch out! It may be ready to charge. No matter what a bison’s tail is doing, remember that they are unpredictable and can charge at any moment. Every year, there are regrettable accidents caused by people getting too close to these massive animals. It’s great to love the bison, but distance makes the heart grow fonder. ⁣ ⁣ Remember, bison may be big, but they’re also fast. They can run up to 35 miles per hour. Plus, they’re extremely agile. Bison can spin around quickly, jump high fences and are strong swimmers. If it weren’t for their atrocious biking skills, they’d be quite the dominate triathlete. ⁣ ⁣ Image: Don’t pet the fluffy cows. A bison stands in a field looking back toward camera at Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve in Kansas.⁣ ⁣ #tallgrassprairie #kansas #nationalparkservice #bison #wildlife #midwestnps
