One of the most popular and most beautiful slot canyons near Glen Canyon is Antelope Canyon.

Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument also has several slot canyons.

You can also read more about slot canyons at americansouthwest.net.

The Badlands, Glacier and Yellowstone national parks are all open year round. Checking road conditions in both Yellowstone and Glacier this time of year is still an absolute must because snow is not uncommon. Glacier National Park just began plowing Going-to-the-Sun Road. For more information on the road conditions and how far the plows have traveled in Glacier follow this link and select the "Where are the plows?" option. For road conditions in Yellowstone follow this link or call 307-344 2117 for current conditions.

There are so many great parks and public lands in all the states you'll be visiting. Use the adventure finder on our home page to find places to visit based on your favorite activities, but here are some of our favorite state-by-state highlights:

South Dakota: Mount Rushmore is a must-see on any visit to the region. So is the nearby Crazy Horse Memorial. But don't forget about the Badlands, which are home to some of our nation's most stunning landscapes.

Utah: This state is home to the Grand Circle, a collection of seven national parks, eight national monuments and numerous state parks, historical sites, prehistoric Indian ruins, colorful ghost towns and stunning geologic formations that reach from northern Arizona into southern Utah. A summary of the highlights is available here.

Arizona: While we absolutely love the Grand Canyon, we also recommend checking out Arizona's State Parks, where you can slide on the natural water chute at Slide Rock State Park or see saguaro cacti, the symbol of the American West, at Catalina State Park.

New Mexico: Make sure to explore Carlsbad Caverns, famous for its spooky caves and extrordinary bat flights.

Texas: Explore Big Bend National Park, where you'll find a beautiful desert environment along the Rio Grande.

Enjoy your trip, and be sure to stop by and let us know how your trip went!

Is a 7-day, $25 pass purchased at one park good at a different park within the same 7 day period?

The 7-day, $25 fee (fees vary from park to park) for park entrance is generally only good for entry in one park. There is an exception for Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, which allows entry into both parks.

if you are planning on visiting multiple parks in a year, consider purchasing an $80 Federal Lands Pass, which allows unlimited entry for your family (in one vehicle) in the entire national park system. If you are over the age of 62, you can obtain a senior pass for $10, which entitles you to unlimited free entry to all national parks for the rest of your lifetime. When you consider that it costs more to take your family to the movies or a ball game, both are amazing deals!

Yes, there are discounts for Seniors (over 62) at Illinois DNR campgrounds. It appears that they're for IL residents, but have a closer look and certainly call the DNR offices to check anyway if you are not a resident of the state. Below is the main Webpage that speaks to this, and some blurbs from that page.


http://dnr.state.il.us/lands/landmgt/programs/camping/discounts.htm

* SENIOR CITIZENS, WHO ARE ILLINOIS RESIDENTS, WISHING TO CAMP AT CLASS AA, CLASS A, CLASS A-P, CLASS B/E, B/E-P, OR CLASS CAMPSITES:

- On Monday thru Thursday, Illinois residents 62 years and older will be charged ONE HALF the regular camping fee plus the $10.00 utility fee (AA, A, A-P, B/E, and B/E-P only). Class B/S, B/S-P do not pay the utility fee.
- On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Illinois residents 62 years and older will be charged the FULL CAMPING FEE plus the $10.00 utility fee (A, AA, A-P, B/E and B/E-P only). Class B/S, B/S-P do not pay utility fee.

* SENIOR CITIZENS, WHO ARE ILLINOIS RESIDENTS, WISHING TO CAMP AT CLASS C OR CLASS D CAMPSITES:


- On Monday thru Thursday, Illinois residents 62 years and older will be charged NO CAMPING FEE. - On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Illinois residents 62 years and older will be charged the FULL CAMPING FEE.

The current date for completion of the dam is set for September.  The area is not closed, however there is very little water in the lake.  So to answer your question, yes, the dam should be completed.  

If you want more information, you can access the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission's website here.

The entrance fee is $25 for a private, noncommercial vehicle; $20 for each snowmobile or motorcycle; or $12 for each visitor 16 and older entering by foot, bike, ski, etc. That gets you a 7 day pass for Yellowstone and Grand Tetons Parks.

Or, an annual pass for the two parks for $50, or the $80 pass that gets you into any national park.

Oddly though, they charge per vehicle, but the pass they give you is a card you sign, and show with photo ID when reentering. Two people can sign each card, and they don't tie them to specific vehicles, so if you're travelling with a group and get creative, you can save a few bucks.

Oh, and I forgot to add:

There are discount rates for Seniors, and free passes available to the blind or disabled. Check the site for details if either of these apply to you.

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

You'll find the commercial vehicle rates there too, if you need them.
