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.

Nobody. Mount Rushmore is a sculpture of four presidents. It is not a hall of fame where we are free to add more heads whenever we like a president enough. We don't add another face next to the Mona Lisa just because we think someone is pretty.

hands down it would be FDR. That man served our country as president for the longest time and took the nation through some difficult and challenging circumstances.

Mt Rushmore is National Historical Monument so the president added should be an advocate of the environment and its preservation. It would have to go to Jimmy Carter for his numerous environmental bills passed that have made major impacts the enviroment and human health.

You should bring chains with you if you are heading to Yosemite this time of year.  At times, it may become mandatory for you to put on chains, even if you have four wheel drive.  Keep in mind that Tioga Pass, Mariposa Grove Road, and Glacier Point Road are all closed at this time.  Check the conditions section on the Yosemite page of NPS.gov for updates, or you can call 209.372.0200 for the most current, up to date status of all road conditions.

Your best bet is probably September!

Mosquito season in Yellowstone extends from May through August. In general, mosquito populations are most intense in June. There are fewer biting bugs in September, but you should always be prepared with bug spray, long-sleeved clothing, long pants and a hat.

Ranger-guided programs usually extend through the end of September. You can view program schedules here.

Lester

Lester was born in Southern California in the early 60’s in what started out as a rural area. He watched the exponential grow all around him thought the 60’s and 70’s. In fact one of his fond early childhood memories was playing in a corn field across from his house that later became the high school he graduated from. Lester loved camping and the mountains from an early age so when the time came for college Lester moved some 700 miles north and attended Humboldt State University. He graduated with a B.S. in Natural Resources, Planning and Interpretation in 1984.
