Photography Spotlight: Top 5 Photos of April 2021

The best photos from the past month of blog posts!




At Pathloom, we're extremely proud of the exclusive content we bring to our community each and every week. We've written comprehensive guides, told our stories from the trails, given some tips & tricks based on our outdoors experience - all with the goal of keeping you, our readers, informed and entertained - and doing our part to make the Great Outdoors more accessible for everyone!


While we're certainly proud of our written content here, (and our videos on YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok!), we're equally proud of the INCREDIBLE work our photographers put in to give you amazing views of some of the most beautiful areas of the country. To that effect, here's our latest edition of Photography Spotlight - the best photos from the past month of Pathloom blogs! Click here to check out last month's greatest hits!

"Up from the coast, bound for the Interstate 10 corridor - a scenic drive with the sun flickering through the Alabama pines and blue palmetto palms, large cotton candy clouds lingering overhead. The salty sea air blowing through my hair, I couldn't help but smile in appreciation of the wonders of a southern adventure."

"Most National Parks allow pets in common areas, campsites and paved roads (though keep in mind many prohibit them in less developed areas). Some even have unique features to offer for them, such as the B.A.R.K Rangers Program. The National Park Service offers a map that shows which parks allow pets, as well as the few that do not."

"Since the swimming area sits in a small inlet in direct view of the lighthouse, you’ll get the benefit of warmer water temperatures (but still quite cold until Late July/Early August - that’s just New England) and a chance to take a swim while you gaze up at a classic New England landmark. Fun fact: the Portland Head Lighthouse is the oldest in Maine, and the most photographed in America!"
