According to the Colorado Tourism Office, aspen trees reach their peak fall color in September. However, you have to time it right — the color is fleeting, lasting only about a week in most places. Unfortunately, it's difficult to predict when exactly the leaves will turn in any given location. The best strategy: select your travel dates in advance, but not your destination. Then go wherever the color is.

Check out Colorado's Fall Foliage Guide for road trip routes sorted by region. You can also check out the National Forest Service's fall foliage website.

If you stay at an in park resort managed by Xanterra (www.xanterra.com), such as the lodges or cabins within Yellowstone, the APN/"Oh Ranger!" guidebook is a free part of the guest services directory you'll find in your room or cabin. This isn't very helpful if you're planning a trip in advance, of course, so I highly recommened spending the $20 and ordering the whole set.


I assume this applies at all Xanterra managed properties, and possibly at the other parks whose services are managed by others (like Delaware North or Forever Resorts, etc), but I can't be 100% sure.

Although the nene is a strong and frequent flyer, its short wings, long legs and reduced webbing between its toes indicate that it often walks and seldom swims. Learn more about the Hawaiian state bird here.

It would probably take a couple of hours to get from Glacier Park Lodge to the Prince of Wales; it's all two lane roads.  It could be done in a day, but it would probably be a long day depending on how many times you stop and what you see.

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.
