Instagram Challenge: #lovegoparks

For this week’s @Columbia1938 Instagram Challenge our friends at the National Park Foundation will judge all your inspiring entries and choose their favorites. The challenge is dedicated to our beautiful National Parks and falling in love with them – over and over again. We want to preserve and protect these parks for future generations, so show your love with #lovegoparks


The National Park Foundation loves the National Parks as much as you do. If we work together, we can protect their heritage and inspire the next generation to get outside and fall in love with our National Parks.

The National Parks have a special significance for everyone and mean something different to each of us – show us what they mean to you and what you love most about our National Parks. Do you have a favorite? Show us! Which parks have you visited? Show us!

Despite the displeasing amount of people in the Tetons this Labor Day weekend, we still managed to find ourselves a place to dip in testicle freezing water. This lake is among one of the coldest I’ve jumped in, but the high temperature called for cannon balls and poorly skilled diving. What an incredible weekend spent outside in Yellowstone & Grand Teton with lovely company!
