First, save money on entrance fees by picking up an "America The Beautiful - The National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Annual Pass" at parkpass.net. If you're age 62 or older, you're eligible for the Senior Pass.

In Utah You’ll be right in the heart of the Grand Circle, a collection of seven national parks, eight national monuments, numerous state parks, scenic byways, historical sites, prehistoric Indian ruins, colorful ghost towns and stunning geologic formations. Take some time to explore some of these places, including Zion, Canyonlands and Monument Valley. For more information on sights to see in the area, check out www.grandcircle.org and www.utah.com/nationalparks/grandcircle.htm. This article also offers some great tips!

Be sure to stop by and let us know how your trip goes!

Looking to visit Yellowstone late March, April. Have several guidebooks and maps from NPS and believe the road to OLD FAITHFUL might be closed then. Can anyone advise if this is open from either the North or South entrance?

I live in Montana, I would check the local ranger district on snowpack reports for the season and see if road opening dates may be delayed. I am not sure if they adhere to a strict road opening date, but being government they probably do. The snowpack in our end of the state has been a bit low, not sure about the park down south. The south entry may get more winter action if I recall correctly. I entered from the north when I lived in Billings area and came thru red lodge. The ranger district should have better info if you look them up and make contact directly.

Just a quick note to all readers of this. I have seen it be 90 degrees in August and snow 7 feet that very night. It has happened to me so please all of you visiting, come prepared for all seasons, and don't pet the buffalo. To many people get smashed up against trees trying to get a picture. At least one or two people get killed each year doing this kind of thing, I am not kidding. Stay safe.

Everglades NP has several access points. Shark Valley should be a 1-1 1/2 hour drive from Ft. Lauderdale. It's a great location to see wildlife up close and there are usually options: walking, renting a bike or taking a tram ride. There are other entrances futher away at Elizabeth City to the west, which have some outfitters (mostly outside the national park, I believe) that offer boating excursions. The other main entrance is in the south at Flamingo where services are limited. Everglades NP is definately worth a visit!

This was the very question I had - I was doing some work for a client who wanted some work on his website - he has puppies for sale from some of the top dogs worldwide. He recommended the glades and had some good recommendations. I actually took my own pooch out there and he loved it.

Anyway - I took advice from a company called everglade tours and they were fantastic. You can google them. In fact, I was a little reluctant to go out on the glades by myself, so I went with this tour group first. The next day, I rented a high tech boat, GPS nav and everything - it was pricey - but well worth it.
