by | Dec 31, 2017 | National Parks and Public Lands

To celebrate the end of 2017, Nature Tech Family hosted a special Best of 2017 #FindYourPark photo challenge. This time around, the photo challenge showcased our favorite memories from our national parks and public lands. While I participated solely on Twitter, others also participated on Instagram. These photo challenges are one of my favorite things about the #ParkChat community and I encourage you to join us online if you are interested in parks and public lands.

Day 1 – “Farthest Away Moment”


Day 2 – “Water or Sand Moment”


Day 3 – “Coldest or Hottest Moment”


Day 4 – “Moment of Celebration”


Day 5 – “Highest Moment”

I totally included the wrong day of the challenge in this post. Doh!

    Very jealous of your bear sighting at Shenandoah! I’ve seen them around the area up there but never actually in the park. What a treat to get to see the cubs!

      Hey Terra! The cubs sure were a treat! I’ve been told there are more bear per square mile in Shenandoah National Park than any other in NP in the lower-48. Honestly, you wouldn’t know it from the experiences of most visitors! We visit multiple times a year and have only had 6-7 sightings since we moved here in 2009. Do you follow Larry Brown on Twitter? ( – He’s great at finding them, but he hikes a ton to do so! We have had our best luck early in the morning, about an hour or two after sunrise.
