Everything is nice at #BryceCanyon National Park (@brycecanyonnps). This #Utah destination is home to the largest collection of hoodoos in the world. These tall, skinny spires of rock can range in height from a few feet to taller than a 10-story building. Photo of Thors Hammer at #sunrise by #NationalPark Service. #usinterior #findyourpark

Loggerhead Key -- located almost 70 miles west of Key West, #Florida -- is the largest island of #DryTortugas #NationalPark. Covering about 49 acres, it is home to a 160-year-old lighthouse and some truly excellent sites for #snorkeling and diving. Along with amazing coral formations, divers can find a variety of colorful reef fish, including parrotfish, angel fish, triggerfish and damselfish. Just remember, look but dont touch. Not only will an accidental brush up against the coral probably kill it, you may be bumping into any number of potentially dangerous animals, include fire coral, jellyfish, sea urchins or the exotic venomous lionfish.

Walking through among the tallest trees in the world is an unforgettable experience. Sounds are reduced to the musical gurgle of water trickling amongst ferns and mossy rocks. Light streams through the mist while stillness and peace weave their spells upon the respectful traveler. More than 200 miles of trails weave through old-growth redwood forests, open meadows and stunning beaches at #Redwood National and State Parks in #California. Arent you ready for a walk?
