oops my mind is in the gutter. but the idea of anal is rather intimidating :(

in a lux hotel room. in the shower, in a big bathtub, on the bed, against the wall and against the window with my tits pressed against the cold glass for the world to see.

Have you ever seen lightning make such crazy shapes? This bolt looks like a Tyrannosaurus rex getting ready to chomp a formation at Blue Mesa in Arizona’s Petrified Forest National Park. Monsoons usher in summer lightning, so explore safely and be sure to check the weather. Photo by Hallie Larsen, National Park Service.

Parcs Publiques

Thériault Jean-François’s photo project, Public Park, takes you on a dreamlike tour of vacant French parks by night. Just beautiful.

In my neighborhood they are everywhere. The majority are hidden behind rows of property or behind woodland. Really difficult to find them by car, you have to explore a little bit, take your bike and find the trails that bring to the fields. It’s always surprising to come across huge parks where we least expect it.

Happy 100th birthday, National Park Service! For the last century, the National Park Service has protected America’s Best Idea, ensuring current and future generations can experience the country’s natural, cultural and historic treasures. The birth of the National Park Service can be traced to back to June 30, 1864, when the federal government set aside Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias – land that would later become Yosemite National Park in California.

Sometimes there are just no words to describe the beauty of Glacier National Park’s high alpine meadows. Video from Glacier’s Boulder Pass Trail by Ranger Amanda, National Park Service. 

Join us August 25 at the Glacier Instameet to celebrate the National Park Service’s 100th birthday. We’ll meet at Apgar Village at 6 pm – we hope to see you then!

Summer in the PNW? Yes, please! And there’s no better place to explore than North Cascades National Park in Washington. The park is part of more than 2 million acres of wilderness, including nearby Mount Baker Wilderness (pictured here). Enjoy the solitude, peace and challenge that hiking in this beautiful park and surrounding wildernesses offer. Remember to walk lightly in all wilderness areas, so that many generations more may discover this place too. Photo courtesy of Dene Miles.

A former coal mine has been turned into a walkable representation of the Universe 

A hillside in southern Scotland has been transformed from an abandoned industrial site into a Universe-themed public park, complete with models of black holes, the Milky Way galaxy, and comet’s tails that you can walk through.

The Crawick Multiverse is 80 km south of Glasgow in the countryside of Dumfries and Galloway. Set over 55 acres, the park is a modern take on Neolithic monuments such as Stonehenge, which paid tribute to the movements of the Solar System - but this time the focus is on the latest advances in physics, such as chaos theory and the idea of parallel universes.

“One theory of pre-history is that stone circles frame the far hills and key points, and while I wanted to capture today’s cosmology, not yesterday’s, I was aware of this long landscape tradition,” landscape architect Charles Jencks, who created the park, told BBC Earth.

Jencks was given the land by the Duke of Buccleuch and Queensberry after the coal mine shut down, because they didn’t know what else to do with the muddy hillside. It had ridges cut into it and nothing seemed to grow there.

As excavation started, it revealed thousands of half-buried boulders that Jencks decided to turn into huge, science-inspired statues.

Two of the biggest models are of the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies, which people can walk through in an attempt to graps the scale of them.

There’s also a mound where mudstone slabs trace a spiral path up to the top that represents the multiverse. Along the way, some of the slabs are carved out to symbolise other potential universes where different physical laws apply.
