Road conditions vary throughout the state, and visitors should be prepared for winter driving conditions from November through March. You should check the road conditions section of NPS pages for individual parks before your trip for the most up-to-date conditions. For Utah road conditions, visit the Utah Department of Transportation website.

Autumn is the best time to witness one of the most unusual sounds in the wilderness--the sound of elk "bugling." Their high-pitched whistle heralds the arrival of fall and the mating season as they compete with other males for dominance. Look for bull elk (males) and their harems of cows (females) at Gibbon Meadows, Elk Park Lamar Valley and Mammoth Hot Springs. A full list of animals who call Yellowstone home is available on our Yellowstone Flora & Fauna page.

All three are great towns, rich in their own way and certainly good jumping-off points for the parks.  Leave some time to explore the towns themselves on your journey as they are a vital part of the park experience.  The Utah office of Tourism has a fantastic site (http://travel.utah.gov/) that should help you answer all of your questions about the areas you're interested in.

Have a fun trip, and let us know at OhRanger.com which towns (and parks of course!) you liked the best!

There are several activities that you can enjoy during your visit to Yellowstone. If you like walking, think about taking some of the day hikes. You will also have the opportunity to tour the visitor centers. Because of the many activities available at Yellowstone, I would advise that you visit the park's website for additional information. Also when you arrive to the park, stop by the Visitor Center and they will be certainly help you out. Enjoy your trip and be sure to stop back to OhRanger.com and post your pictures and stories!

This is actually not an easy question to answer as there are a lot of wonderful things to do.  It really depends on how much time you have.  The first thing you should do is just take a look.  The canyon is magnificent and all the pictures you have seen don't do it justice.  Take a walk around the canyon.  I assume you will be visiting the south rim and around the rim there is a nice easy trail you can walk on to get different views of the canyon.  If you are up for a more rigorous hike, go down into the canyon.  Either the Bright Angel Trail or the South Kaibab Trail will provide you different perspectives of the canyon and you can hike as little or as much as you want.  Get up early to watch the sunrise or find a spot to watch the sunset.  At the beginning and the end of the day you can watch the colors of the canyon change and get the most dramatic views.  And stop at one of the visitor centers and talk to the park rangers.  There is a daily schedule of ranger led talks and walks where you can learn about Grand Canyon history, geology, animal and plant life, etc.

We were just there in May and had a wonderful time.  I hope you do too.

Most campgrounds in Glacier are first-come first-served, but two (Fish Creek and St. Mary) may be reserved in advance. For more information, visit the NPS Glacier Camping website.
 
To book a hotel room or red bus tour, contact Glacier Park Inc.

 For boat tours, contact Glacier Park Boat Company.

 You do not need reservations to enter the park!
