The theme for the January #FindYourPark Photo Challenge on Twitter was “This is MY America.” The theme (curated by the Nature Tech Family blog), was very timely during the post-inauguration turmoil. The subsequent attacks on our public lands and science community have been stressful. So, we all needed a daily mental break to remind ourselves to remember the good in America. Similar to last time, I decided to round up my 7 photos that capture my America from this month’s challenge and share them with you here:

Day 1 – “Sentimental”

Day 2 – “Majestic”

Day 3 – “I’d rather be…”

Day 4 – “Who do you explore with?”

Day 5 – “Colors of Nature”

Day 6 – “Cultural Understanding”

Day 7 – “Best Staff”
