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!

Average highs in Denver in August are in the high 80s. Average highs in cities along your route in Utah and Nevada can be in the 90s. For more about average temperatures, check out the average weather charts on weather.com.

As your trip approaches, you can check weather conditions on the interstate at weather.com's Interstate trip planner.

Brookville Lake is over 16 miles long and is actually made up of three separate Recreation Areas:  Mounds, Quakertown and Whitewater.  Just past the entrance to Mounds, on the way to the water, there are picnic tables and shelters.  Whitewater has a brand new playground are and is typically considered the best part of the lake for fishing.  There's so much to do on the lake, we absolutely suggest talking with the folks at the Indiana Department of Natural Resrouces at more length before you go.  Click here for more information and/or call: (765) 647-2657.

Have a great trip!

I don't know about Top of the Rockies specifically, but I usually drive the Chief Joseph and Beartooth highways (Wyoming and Montana respectively) at least once while I'm working in Yellowstone during the summers. Neither of these roads forbids trailers, and I suppose they could be driven while towing, but I wouldn't do it. The high mountain roads are notoriously narrow and winding, often with little shoulder between you and a frightening drop off a cliff. If possible, I'd recommend leaving the trailer at the campground or whatever, or just driving extra carefully in the mountains. The mountain byways are beautiful drives, but they're unforgiving, always respect them.

Swimming is a popular activity at Lake Powell, especially in the summer when water temperatures can surpass 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Please be aware that there are no life guards or designated swim beaches at Lake Powell or on the Colorado River. Swim at your own risk. Swimming is prohibited at all marinas and launch areas.
A list of swimming locations and directions is available here.

Florida manatees are found in shallow, slow-moving rivers, bays, estuaries and coastal water ecosystems. There are several places you can see manatees in their natural habitat. Biscayne National Park is a great place to start. Manatees are also found at Blue Spring State Park. You can see dolphins in Everglades National Park.

Denali National Park is deep in the heart of Alaska's bear country. It is almost impossible to drive through the park without seeing a bear. One of your best bets to see a bear is take one of the many bus tours offered by the park. These tours afford visitors the chance to become familiar with the park and surrounding areas. Denali is a largely pristine, undeveloped park. A few years ago a conscious decision was made to not develop its hiking trails. 

Bears are most often found near where they feed. They are most often seen in many of the berry patches in the park.

During the summer it is very important to follow proper safety precautions. Park Rangers can alert you to proper procedures to avoid injuries in bear country. Bears can be particularly hostile during this time of year while they are raising their young. Always remember, bears are wild and if startled can be deadly.
