Mercury's surface in "enhanced color," a color scheme created to emphasize color differences. This is not what Mercury would look like to the human eye, but by applying mathematical analysis to images, color differences can be accentuated beyond those visible to a person.
Mount Rushmore National Memorial under construction.
The workers had to endure conditions that varied from blazing hot to bitterly cold and windy. Each day they climbed 700 stairs to the top of the mountain to punch-in on the time clock. Then 3/8 inch thick steel cables lowered them over the front of the 500-foot face of the mountain in a "bosun chair." Despite the dangers, no one was killed during the project.
Otters in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, Alaska.
The sea otter population of Glacier Bay has increased dramatically in the past 20 years. Ecologists consider sea otters a keystone species here. Otters consume vast quantities of clams, urchins, crabs, and other invertebrates and their presence creates ripples through the ecosystem. NPS photo.

With more than 80% of Americans living in urban areas, urban parks are more important than ever. The father of American landscape architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted, said of urban parks:
It is one great purpose of the Park to supply to the hundreds of thousands of tired workers, who have no opportunity to spend their summers in the country, a specimen of God's handiwork that shall be to them, inexpensively, what a month or two in the White Mountains or the Adirondacks is, at great cost, to those in easier circumstances.
The DOI Records Management Program focuses primarily on records created, received, and used by the Department of the Interior in the conduct of official business. The secondary focus is the media in which the record exists (paper, audiovisual, cartographic, and electronic media). It is the Department's policy to properly identify recordkeeping requirements and to effectively and efficiently manage needed records throughout their life cycle (creation, use and maintenance, and disposition). The Department of the Interior Records Management Program is responsible for providing leadership and direction for the Department's records management program. Among its responsibilities are:
developing an overall records management strategy producing the policy, procedures, and guidance necessary to implement that program;
cooperating with other units in IMD in developing policies and guidance on the application of technology to records management;
coordinating the program within the Department's bureaus and offices and with interested outside parties such as the National Archives and Records Administration;
representing the Department in interagency records management groups; and
assisting records programs across the Department with advice and technical expertise.
Products/Outreach: The Departmental Records Officer maintains a complete set of the Department's records disposition schedules, which serve as a high-level finding aid to all Departmental records. Other materials maintained include a complete set of Departmental records management policy, guidance, and procedures, as well as a reference collection of records management related materials (NARA brochures, pamphlets, posters, NARA training schedules, etc.).
