The regions North of the Yukon River, all the way to the Arctic, are the worst for mosquitos in general.  The worst time of year to go is in July, however you are likely to encounter them as soon temperatures remain above freezing for a couple of weeks.

You can bring repellant, but the stuff that repels the best is bad for your skin and clothes, and will contain a measured amount of deet.  Since I personally prefer to not to crop dust myself, you can purchase netting to go around your hat or head, and maintain long sleeves and pants throughout the day. 

If you still get bit, don't scratch!

Moose and Elk are members of the cervidae family which also include whitetail deer, reindeer and mule deer. Male deer, elk and moose, and virtually all deer species (the chinese water deer and female reindeer are the exceptions) grow and shed new antlers each year. In this they differ from permanently horned animals such as the pronghorn, which are in the same order as deer and may bear a superficial resemblance.

There are beautiful roads throughout the park where road surfaces are smooth smooth, winding, with gorgeous canyons and cliffs all around you.  The popular part of the park, where most of the favored scenic spots are located, is the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive. 

If you finish Zion Canyon and you are looking for more, try out the Kolob Terrace Road.  You will see fewer park visitors, cars, and the western side of the park- all to youself!  This road is much less frequented than Zion Canyon, and worth a good foray.  There will be a few steep climbs on this side; but where you go up, you will also come down!

There is not any mountain biking in the park.  If you wish to mountain bike in Utah, the area outside of Moab that is not National Park land will allow mountain biking, and is famous for it.  I know of no National Parks that allow mountain bikes off-road.

I do not know the roads, but sunrise and sunset is always the best times for colorful shots anywhere. Mid day the sun is brightest and colors will be lightest. The overlooks at Bryce face mostly east, so early morning and late afternoon is best. The Tetons are on the west side of Jackson Hole and the east side of Idaho, so sunrises again are going to be best  and sunsets.

But it can be cloudy any day so good pictures are mostly trail and error and given day of the day, A polarizer filter is good for making shots bluer and greener. You turn the filter to adjust the light. Experiment with one before going out to take your nat'l park shots.

The weather at Glacier National Park should be very nice in early September, but a bit chilly at night.  Highs are typically in the high 60's, and lows can be under 40 depending on where you are.  This link can help you plan for other times of the year as well.  (click here)

Plan for any kind of weather.  The weather in Yellowstone is best described as unpredictable.  The website below has the averages for park weather (keep in mind that the elevation in Yellowstone ranges from 5300 to over 8000 feet).

http://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/weather.htm

September is a wonderful time to visit Yellowstone, enjoy your visit.

As Kristine pointed out, it's hard to predict, but

At that time last year, most locations in the park had a few inches of snow. I'd plan for cold and snow, but have some lighter clothing with you as well, just in case it stays warm.

This is a question we get a lot and a very good one.  For typical hiking conditions, three quarts per person per day is a good rule of thumb (depending on the length of the hike, the weather and your level of fitness).  However, for the Grand Canyon given the climate and elevation changes, we'd recommend at least 4-5 quarts per person per day.  Again, this is only a general rule of thumb so please make sure you are listening to your own body.  Dehydration in the Grand Canyon is a big deal and you will feel much more energetic when you are well hydrated.

Also, don't wait until you are "thirsty" to drink.  Allow for consistent stops along the way to drink before you feel you need it.  It'll give your body a chance to rest, your muscles will stay loose, and you'll remind yourself to look around a bit!


Enjoy!  Phantom Ranch and the Grand Canyon are special places!
