Photo by @pedromcbride // Walking through the hidden slot canyons of the Grand Canyon is a window through rock and time. These narrow, hydraulic subway systems support a wider range of biodiversity than any park in the United States thanks to the park's size and verticality. To see more images from this iconic place and the river that carved it, follow @pedromcbride. #grandcanyon #betweenriverandrimbook #nature #gratitude #petemcbride

The Perseid Night
Photo by @babaktafreshi
The World at Night project
Stars of constellation Orion, the Hunter, rise over a high Sierra lake in California this morning during the Perseid Meteor Shower. At 9000 ft (3000 m), away from light pollution, it was a beautiful celestial display. If you have missed it, the show continues in the next few nights, with fewer meteors. More of the shooting stars appear after midnight when constellation Perseus rises high in the sky.
Follow me @babaktafreshi to explore the wonders after dark.

Exploradores estudian un misterioso sistema volcánico en Guatemala 🌋
Un equipo partió en una misión para estudiar el complejo de lava dómica más activo del mundo a fin de ayudar a la gente que vive a la sombra de un volcán.
Santiaguito, un complejo formado volcánico por cuatro domos de lava (montículos redondeados hechos de lava viscosa), se extiende en la base del volcán El Caliente. Desde 1922, erupciones leves pero casi continuadas han expulsado chorros de vapor y cenizas desde estos domos de lava. Stephanie Grocke, Gabby Salazar y Ross Donihue (exploradores de National Geographic) partieron en una expedición de un mes con guías locales y policía turística a fin de estudiar estos volcanes activos, probar un nuevo método para monitorear la actividad de los domos de lava y desarrollar métodos para predecir erupciones.

[ #WorldElephantDay ] Distant Thunder | Photograph by Deborah MacEwen
“I was flying to the Okavango Delta in a little three-seater plane, scared to death to open my eyes,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Deborah MacEwen, “but when I did, and saw this wonder, my fear left and I started shooting. An experience of a lifetime!!”

“This is fantastic, this is so epic. Even without the elephants, this photo would be gorgeous — the textures in the landscape is beautiful. love Your Shot photographer G. Luvztigger's comment: ‘Sometimes the things that scare us the most, can also open up the greatest possibilities.’” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)
