Breathtaking Photos of America from the U.S. Department of Interior’s Carefully Curated Instagram

The U.S. Department of the Interior manages the most breathtaking lands in America and they have the photos to prove it. From the adorable bear cubs of Delaware's Water Gap National Recreation Area to Maine's Acadia National Park and New Mexico's glistening white sands, it seems that this department has plenty of material to work with. What's most interesting about their Instagram account is that viewers can see just how vast America truly is. Each and every state has an incredible amount of natural beauty that changes as the seasons go by. This certainly makes for a photography series that Mother Nature would be proud of.
