Celebrating the 100th Birthday of Our National Park Service!

When Yellowstone National Park became the first national park in the United States in 1872, there was no one to oversee its maintenance. From this beginning, a steady movement grew to embrace the country’s unique natural beauties.

Today, we can witness these natural beauties from space, courtesy of Expedition 48 commander, astronaut Jeff Williams, from aboard the International Space Station. 

Death Valley National Park

This is the commander’s view of Death Valley, taken from the station in early August 2016.

Everglades National Park

Williams captured the beauty of Florida Bay in the  Everglades National Park, focusing on  the Crocodile Sanctuary, a protected wildlife area. 

Glacier Bay

Sail down the Ice Ages at Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.  From Tarr Inlet Tidewater glacier to Sitakaday Narrows.

Grand Canyon National Park

Grand indeed, here’s the Grand Canyon National Park seen from the International Space Station. Even from space, it took 13 pictures merged together to capture all 277 miles in this fly over.

Yosemite National Park

From visionary leaders of the movement, who worked to create and manage national parks like Teddy Roosevelt to Charles Young, the first African American park superintendent, Congress heeded the call and passed the National Park Service Organic Act, creating the National Park Service (NPS). One hundred years ago today, on August 25, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed the bill into law.

8.24.16 // 1:30 pm •• i spent some time in the journalism library today. its so beautiful!


In Italy there was a major earthquake: many dead. So, the only thing I feel about publishing today, is this beautiful song made by Ville for all people leaving this world 🌹

(Sorry for my English)

I don’t usually write about things like this because it feels pointless since I think the silence is the only form of respect; but as Italian I felt so upset about the earthquake that destroyed so many cities in my beautiful country today. My thoughts go to all those people whom lost an house, a loved person, a family; even their own life.
Please, keep them in your mind.

It was so beautiful today I decided to walk home from work. It took 2 hours. Not pictured: my sweat drenched body dying in the heat.
