National park photo ops: Early light and a long lens are Grand Canyon must-haves

Posing for a companion’s photo at Grand Canyon National Park, a visitor spreads his arms as if to take flight from an unfenced ledge on the south rim. Formed by the meandering Colorado River, the Grand Canyon is 277 miles long, 18 miles wide and a mile deep. This was shot during the first half-hour...

National park photo ops: When the Grand Canyon is at its grandest

National park tips: This may be the most fetching stretch of river in all Texas

Down along the Texas-Mexico border, the Rio Grande slips into a series of deep canyons and dramatic desert landscapes. That's Big Bend National Park, and it's a great place for a mellow raft trip. (Here’s the story of a trip I did back in 2008.) You won't find any white water to speak of, but the...

National park tips: At the Grand Canyon in winter, try these for traction

If you visit Grand Canyon National Park in winter, expect snow and ice on the south rim. And even if you’re only walking a mile or two down the trail, you’ll need traction. If you haven’t got your own crampons, spend $20 for a pair (available in park stores) to help your hiking boots grip the icy...

National park tips: Is this the year you finally ride a Grand Canyon mule?

It’s a thrill to savor, but not that many travelers these days get to take the classic mule ride at Grand Canyon National Park. Instead, meandering on the trail for a few hours as most tourists do, you ride down to the canyon bottom, spend the night and ride back up the next day. More than 600,000...

National park tips: This fake tower's view is real

Go to Desert View Watchtower in Grand Canyon National Park. It’s 25 miles east of the South Rim’s teeming Grand Canyon Village, so many travelers miss it. (It’s not on the park’s shuttle bus routes, either.) But it’s a great stop. One reason is the panoramic desert, canyon and river view. The other...

National park tips: This California valley gets you lower than the Grand Canyon

When you make that road trip to Death Valley National Park, don’t just drive to Badwater, which is famed for being the lowest point in North America. Try to get there at sunrise or sunset, when the dramatic light all but transforms the landscape into a sci-fi set. Then hike a few hundred yards...

Disaster in the Smokies by Elizabeth Licata

4 months agoHobbies / Gardening : Garden Rant

A national park since 1926, the Great Smokies at times seem overshadowed by the spectacular parks of the west: Zion, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone. In fact, a list I saw of the best national parks only includes one park in the eastern US: Acadia. I visited this park a few years back, and I can […]

National park tips: Sleep here on the Grand Canyon's South Rim

El Tovar is the fanciest hotel on the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. But it’s pricey, and it's got only 78 rooms. And no elevators, because it’s historic. Meanwhile, there are dozens of other rooms and cabins just as close to the South Rim. Instead of paying $217-$538 nightly (2017 rates)...
