The South Rim of Grand Canyon is open every day of the year.  Personal vehicles are allowed at most times on the rim road with certain exceptions.  As of today, the weather and roads is fine and access is available everywhere except for Yaki Point.  On March 1st some things change, so for more information on the day/days you'd like to go, you should call the park information line at (928) 638-7888.

Here are some other links for current weather in the area:

We just returned from the South rim of the Grand Canyon.   The roads are well maintained and if you follow the Hermit Road from the Village where the Lodges are, you won't have any trouble at all.

My wife and I would like to see Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and Glacier all in a 10 day trip. Is this to much to try to cram into one trip?

While all three parks are a lot to visit in ten days it can be done. Plan on at least one day of driving to get between Yellowstone and Glacier. To get the most out of your trip use the "Only a Day" link on ohranger.com for each park. These "Only a Day" links for Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Tetons provide a quick highlight of some of the main features in the park that you won't want to miss. To get the most out of your stay try to stay in the park. If you plan ahead there's no reason these three parks can't be accommodated in one trip.

Yes, Golden Age Passports are valid for a lifetime and are equivalent to the new Senior Pass, which is honored at all national parks and federal public recreation lands. 

The Senior Pass admits pass owner/s and passengers in a non-commercial vehicle at areas where a per-vehicle fee is charged, and the pass owner plus 3 adults, not to exceed 4 adults, where per-person fees are charged. (Children under 16 are always admitted free.) Note: Photo identification will be requested to verify pass ownership.

The Forest Service, the National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and Bureau of Reclamation honor the Senior Pass at sites where Entrance or Standard Amenity Fees are charged.

Wow. What a great trip. There are few that imediately come to mind, though you may have to get off the road to visit them. Devils Tower National Monument is eastern Wyoming is an impressive site that merits an hour or two. Custer State Park in Western South Dakota is well known for its herd of 1500 free roaming bison and populations of mule deer, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, pronghorn, mountain lions and feral burros, which were have grazed here for decades. The park is famous for its scenery, its scenic drives (Needles and the wildlife loop), with views of the bison herd. You can easily access the park from Rapid City, the Badlands and Mount Rushmore. C

South Dakota has many other points of interest worth visiting, including Wind Cave National Park, Jewel Cave National Monument, Crazy Horse Memorial and Kevin Costner's Tatanka: Story of the Bison (in Deadwood) just to name a few.

Make sure to visit Wall Drug and check the history of this unique place. You'll be in the Badlands anyway, and it is well worth the stop. Also, Wind Cave is a great cave if you like caves, and it is very accessible and easy to walk. If you will be in the Black Hills for dinner, I would highly recommend Circle B Ranch, if they are still in business. Just a terrific experience we had years ago.

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.

The roads from the North Entrance and the West Entrance to Old Faithful are scheduled to open April 16, 2010.  The road from the South Entrance is scheduled to open May 14, 2010.  Road opening dates are weather dependant.  Check, http://www.nps.gov/yell for more information.

The traffic between Grand Teton and Yellowstone is as unpredictable as the weather that time of year. While it'll likely be sunny, you may get the occasional snow shower. Similarly, you're just as likely to not encounter another car as you are to get in a bear or bison jam. Relax, slow down and enjoy the view.


In order to get to the south entrance, you'll need to first pass through Grand Teton National Park. The park entry fee allows you to spend a week in BOTH parks for $25. If you plan to visit multiple parks in the next month, consider investing in a America The Beautiful Federal Lands Pass, which offers unlimited visitation to all parks for you and your entire family (if you are in the same car) for $80. If you are a senior citizen, the you can purchase a senior pass for $10, which allows you to enter parks at no additional cost for the remainder of your life. All are great deals!

Have a safe trip and remember to slow down and enjoy the view.

The Grand Canyon SkyWalk™ is not affiliated with Grand Canyon National Park.  It is located along the canyon in an area about 120 miles due east from Las Vegas, NV.  Admission is $40.95 per person, and you should probably plan a full day given the travel time to and from. 

For more information about the SkyWalk, here are a few links and a YouTube clip:

We were looking into this too, but there is a blog about it and some VERY negative comments about the charges they don't tell you about until you make the LONG drive to get there on the 'washboard' road. Many people claim that when you pay for everything including the mandatory bus ride, the 'Tribe' will get about $75 per person, not including pictures that THEY will take because you are NOT allowed to take your camera. Check it out thoroughly before you decide. We were going, but were deterred by our research. Too bad, it looks GRAND!

 Currently, Grand Canyon National Park does not have special rates for military retirees however, the park's admission fee is free on Veterans Day. There are currently discounted rates available for senior citizens and for the disabled. Please follow this link for information on park passes. There is currently a law pending in the House of Representatives that would make the National Park's pass available at a discount to veterans. Please write to your member of congress and support this legislation.
