Last May we shared one of our most popular posts on ParkChasers.com: “15 National Park Instagram Accounts to Follow.” We heard your requests and are ready to share our new favorites!
Instagram has become our National Park insta-vacation this winter. We love to scroll through the stunning sunsets and hiking candids. During the 2016 Centennial year, more national park units adopted the social media platform than ever before. The National Park Service is using Instagram to highlight visitors and share park updates. It’s a great place to stay connected with your favorite parks.
When we posted back in May, more than 1 million posts included the hashtag #nationalpark. That number is now 2.1 million. #findyourpark went from 250,000 to more than 700k. You’ll love opening the app for a quick virtual get-away in the middle of the day.
While we’re still faithful fans of the original 15 instagram accounts, today we’re sharing 15 more national park instagram accounts you should add to your feed right now. And while you’re adding these, don’t forget to follow us on Instagram: @ParkChasers

“A good Post to be made at the Oneida Carrying Place capable of Lodging 200 men in the Winter and for 3 or 400 men in the Summer for its Defence.” …Though Fort Stanwix was situated in New York, people from many states helped to rebuild and defend it during the American Revolution. Because of their contributions, the fort served not only as an important military post, but also as a place where people from 13 very different states began to forge a national identity.

The shortest day of the year—the Winter Solstice—is tomorrow in the Northern Hemisphere. Now the sun sets more than 3 hours earlier than when this photograph was taken this summer on Ruby Beach! After tomorrow, the days will start to slowly lengthen again. Photo: @grantolio #solstice #isitsummeryet #rubybeach #sunset #shortdays
