Not sure when you're leaving. If you e-mail me your address, at info@morselmunk.com, I will send you a complimentary copy of the Yosemite National Park Guide. Are there any others you would like?

Happy trails!

Spring plowing is underway on the Going-to-the-Sun Road at Glacier National Park.

As of this morning, June 21, there are 41.5 miles of the Going-to-the-Sun Road open for travel. Visitors can drive 28 miles from the West Entrance to Big Bend, and 13.5 miles from the St. Mary Entrance to Jackson Glacier Overlook. The section of the road between Big Bend and Jackson Glacier Overlook is closed due to snow plowing operations.   

Updated road conditions for the Going-to-the-Sun Road, and all other roads at Glacier National Park is available at the NPS Glacier Road Status site.

You can take the shuttle bus to Hermits Rest (park buses are wheelchair accessible) from the rim stops.  If you would rather take the trail, there are a few points along the 7 miles between the village and Hermits Rest that are also accesible, including Pima Point and Monument Creek Vista.

The NPS has created a nice audio-cast of the tour here:

Which park are you planning to visit?

In general though, the parks prone to snow closures, such as Yellowstone or Glacier definitely have the possibility of road closures in September. On the other hand, the Park Service knows that a lot of families look forward to outings on Labor Day weekend as a last hurrah of summer before the kids get back to school, so they do their best to keep the roads plowed and open in the event of snow. Most of the roads will be kept clear until mid to late September, with park operations closing or switching to limited access winter use by mid to late october.


And, YES, there will be crowds, no matter what park. Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day are big travel holidays with lots of families out camping or touring the parks. If you want to to skip the crowds, and can schedule it, dates after Labor Day should provide far smaller crowds at just about any park.

On the other hand though, meeting new people from around the country, and the world, is one of the fun parts of visiting the parks, so don't let that be the only thing that scares you off, just plan to have a more flexible schedule in case driving is slow or you have to wait a short bit to see the attractions or get into a restaurant.
