We are prepping for our March artifact labs and pulled some really neat objects! Kate shows off a pair of eighteenth-century spectacles. Note the round loops (or ring ends) at the ends of the ear pieces. These loops helped keep the spectacles in place by distributing the grip above the wearer’s ear. Some historians believe the loop might have been been used to secure the eyewear to the head, but samples are covered in leather or fabric, suggesting the loop serviced more as a grip than a pull. In images depicting bespectacled men, the loops are tucked under a wig; the wig helping keep the spectacles in place. Prior to the 1730, glasses didn’t have ‘sides’ or ear pieces. Spectacles were either handheld or balances on the bridge if he nose. Though scholars note a precursor to the solid or fixed ‘sides’ was the practice of threading or cording. This involves looping a cord around each ear and attaching the cord to the eyepiece; essentially an corded ear piece. spectacles eighteenthcenturyeyewear interns artifactlab museumeducation findyourpark [Image Description: This post features a picture of our intern, Kate, holding a pair of eighteenth-century eye glasses or spectacles. Kate smiles in the background as she hold the brass oval spectacles in front of her own modern eyewear. She wears cotton gloves to protect the frames. The ends of the ear pieces feature a single loop).

This photograph is not my typical edit yet it has long been one of my favorite shots of the greateryellowstonetraverse I am just now sharing it with y'all because the tent pictured is a prototype of hyperlite_mountain_gear recently released tent! cheesebeard_hikes was buckling in for a rough night of storms. Raging winds and driving rains meant I had to wake up at least half a dozen times to fix my shelter while he happily snoozed away. The highest point in Montana, Granite Peak, looms in all her glory in the background. Not long after I took this she became shrouded for the rest of our time at this high altitude campsite.

Biscayne National Park, a wild and watery world in southern Florida. It would not be hard to miss when searching on a map. The park is probably 98% water but the sights from land were great! Only 45 minutes from the Everglades and Miami visible from the shore. We spent a beautiful, warm morning here. Watched pelicans dive and schools of fish swim by in the clear water. I can only assume it would be an awesome place to snorkel and boat! Biscayne BiscayneNationalPark NationalParks ParkProject FindYourPark ProtectOurParks Travel Adventure Explore Live

Exploring ZionPart 4: Snow day (day 3) More snow had come in overnight. This was my last day at Zion before headed over to Death Valley, so I was determined to give the view point another try: hiking the same trail before sunrise, for the third time. On the way up, I noticed this one slanted tree that was quite unique but quickly moved on to make sure I got to the view point on time for sunrise. When I got to the top, visibility was low as the valley was engulfed in fog. I waited around for a few minutes. It was apparent that I wasn't going to get the view I had hiked up for, so I returned to the slanted tree. The combination of the yellow tree bark, the red rock, and a fresh layer snow made it quite a memorable scene. I carefully tiptoed around the perimeter to make sure I didn't leave any accidental footprints on a potential composition, and ended up with a photo I'm quite pleased with.

Swipe to see a sweeping panorama of grandcanyonnps! This park blew us away with it’s awesomeness, and winter/spring is a great time to visit because of smaller crowds. Bundle up and enjoy the views all year round. 2019 is an especially great time to visit because they are celebrating their centennial. Happy Birthday GCNPS This view is from the eastern side of the canyon at The Desert View Watchtower findyourpark everykidinapark grandcanyon nps

These pictures simply don’t do it justice It is SOOOOOO red and the striations in the rock are simply fascinating. Red Rock Canyon is a National Conservation Area not even half an hour outside of Las Vegas and is included with your National Parks Pass Lots of rock climbers! Saw about 10 deer, 4 desert tortoises, and 1 wild burro. Was hoping to spot a Gila monster or snake, but maybe another time. Saw petroglyphs for the first time DRIVE SLOWLY to see the wildlife, they blend in really well and can be tough to spot, but they’re there.

Recently the gigantic lake that my hometown lies on — Flathead Lake — froze over. This is a snap from the last time I jumped into its icy waters. If you’re judging by surface area, Flathead is the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River in the contiguous United States. Based on size and type, it is one of the cleanest lakes in the world. How lucky I am to have grown up on its shores. adventure adventuretime adventurer explore exploremontana flatheadlake flathead flatheadvalley flatheadphotography flatheadlakemontana forceofnature findyourpark getout getoutside girlswhohike girlswhogrow girlswhoadventure girlswhotravel hike lovewhereyoulive montana montanalife montanamoment montanagram naturephotography optoutside sheexplores sheroams lifestyleblogger montananative

Gunlock State Park in Southwest Utah.  These waterfalls have not appeared for seven years.  Millions of gallons of water flowing south, out of the mountains hopefully on its way to Lake Mead.  This wonderfully wet winter will help the Mojave prepare for the hot dry summer to come and maybe increase the blooms on our amazing desert succulents as spring approaches.  The water was flowing so fast that a whirlpool formed beneath the waterfall. argoimagery gunlockstatepark wereutah utahisrad xputah travelutah utahgram divinedeserts wildernessculture exploretocreate findyourpark stayandwander xphotographer xt3 fujifilmx_us fujilovers fujixlovers washingtoncountyut inspire_mydestinations ill_landscapes wanderlust travel

Another picture from Barr Lake part of coparkswildlife. Winter is grasping on with all of its might but it can’t stop the impending arrival of Spring.

this otherworldly trail is one of the most uniquely beautiful hikes I have ever been on. but after hiking for 5 hours and about 8 miles at 10,000 feet above the clouds in the direct sun, this last stretch is no joke. a gradual but continuous 3.8 mile incline of switchback hell to get back to the top. i am miserable in this photo and likely cursing all the things under my breath 🤣 but this view sure is incredible, isn’t it? ⛰ optoutside forceofnature

These paths through the volcanic tuff rock are paths left by the natives that called this area home Connecting caveate to caveate, pueblo to pueblo, and more. It's also entertaining to me as tall as I am with feet as big as I have trying to meander through these paths and to crawl into the caves they housed families in Puebloans were much smaller than today's western European descendants and biologically it makes sense bandeliernationalmonument findyourpark foundmypark nationalparkservice bandelier newmexicobeauty newmexicotrue losalamos jemezmountains nature naturescape landscape newmexico photography landscapephotography naturephotography wander wanderer wanderlust sky skyscape followformore landscapes sony sonyalpha

For years, women's park uniforms varied widely and tended to follow fashion trends of the time. In the late 1970s, the National Park Service authorized women to wear the same green and gray, in all of its configurations, as their male counterparts.

I’m about to bombard y’all with a butt load of pictures, and the reason why I’ve been scarce from IG! 👌🏼 ** First, on Thurs. & Fri., my baby sister (and her littles) & my Mama came to visit us and it was great! I won’t share this pics publicly for privacy reasons, but if your on my FB you know. Then Sat. & Sun., I was busy restoring my soul. We camped out at InksLakeStatePark and had some awesome hikes. The water was still too cold for swimming (for us), but the weather was perfect for trekking and taking in the scenery. I love camping, especially tent style, so any opportunity to do so, I’m all over it!

Happy Mountain Monday! Is that a thing? I feel like it could be a thing. Here’s what the west side of Glacier looked like in the fall (the east side was already buried under feet of snow). I wonder what it looks like now after a wet winter? Will Going to the Sun Road get plowed out before next winter starts?
