November 15, 2010, 10:00 am

As part our latest series, the team has put together a list of our favorite national park activities. Each month, we'll share a few of our
most-loved adventures with you. In return, we hope YOU will do the same!

Here is our second round of Oh, Ranger! Insider Tips. We hope you enjoy
them -- and that they inspire you to get outdoors and experience our parks!

Dry Tortugas National Park, Florida
Take a seaplane out to fly over Fort Jefferson and then go snorkeling or scuba diving under the crystal-clear water.

Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona
Hike down to the bottom of the canyon and stay the night at Phantom Ranch, a historic camp tucked beside Bright Angel Creek on the north side of the Colorado River. Make your reservations in advance, and be sure to
try the Phantom Ranch Stew!

Big Bend National Park, Texas
Drive out to Dagger Flats, a forest of giant dagger yuccas in the heart of the Chihuahuan desert.
