  1. Fantastic tribute to the earth and parks, Jane. I lingered for quite a while over these magnificent photos, you masterful artist you. On my first slow look through the series I guessed where we were and then was happy to see you listed the places at the post’s end. So then I went back and enjoyed again. Classic Crater Lake and Grand Canyon and Bryce shots, highlighting their beauty, and that day you were at Carrizo could not have been more lovely. Fun to see some of my favorite Bay Area places like the Sonoma coast and Pt. Reyes. Lovely words and quotes too. I always ask myself which one of your stunning images did I like best today? and the answer for this moment is: the Chilean glacier for its textures, the brilliant blues, and the highlight of the glacier in the center of the grays. Let’s hope that we can continue to give glaciers to our next generations. Cheers to your photos and this beautiful earth.

  8. They’re trying reservations to visit …

    Maroon Bells, too many people and basically the trail was trashed. If it works, they may try the reservation system for Rocky Mountain NP.

  30. Stunning post showing us just all that there is on Earth to treasure and protect! I would pick out Sustain, Applaud, Cherish and Treasure as favourites I think 😀 Was Sustain taken at Glacier Grey in the Torres del Paine NP? The colours are just like the ones in my own images from there.
