    Do you recommend the Navajo Tour at Monument Valley in USA?

    Going with a Navajo guide added a lot, in our opinion. Made it more than just a drive-by. He told us the Navajo names for various formations, what significance they had, legends and lore, etc. It's a way for them to make money and after all, they were here first! over 6 years ago

    If you mean a scenic kind of thing, try the Durango-Silverton railroad. It has a web site. over 6 years ago

    We only have one day at Mesa Verde Nat'l Park. What are the "must-sees"?

    You should take a guided tour of one of the ruins, but which one would depend on the physical fitness of your party. Some involve climbing ladders. Best place to check is the nps.gov web site for the park. They will have descriptions of the various ones. over 6 years ago

    Where is the best place to find Bald Eagles? I will be in Skagway and juneau this summer.

    We spotted several bald eagles when we were on a whale-watching tour, which was very neat even if we hadn't seen the eagles. over 6 years ago

    I am going to Texas in October. Any suggestion where to take my teen age grand sons for good family fund for a 3 day week end.

    Depends. It's a big state. If you will be up in the Panhandle part, (between New Mexico and Oklahoma, go to Palo Duro Canyon, Spectacular, and you would never guess from what you see on the Interstate that there is anything like it nearby. Lots of hiking opportunities. Take the kids to the Big Texan Steak Ranch. Touristy but worth it, especially for kids, and the food is actually fairly good. Depending on their ages, they might enjoy horseback riding at the Palo Duro stables, which has trails that go into the canyon. Panhandle Plains Museum in the town of Canyon has fantastic exhibits for both kids and grownups. over 6 years ago

    Breakfast in Bluff

    Answering my own question: A great place for breakfast. The fry bread is amazing and the trading post (not the gift shop) has high-quality authentic pottery, jewelry, blankets, etc. and very helpful people, no pressure to buy but ready to answer any questions. over 6 years ago

    How does the shuttle system in Glacier National Park, Montana, work?

    The park site on nps.gov can give you up-to-date information. The shuttles run both directions on Going to the Sun Road. They are free, with designated stops, you can get off at any stop and get back on another one providing there's a seat. Definitely more relaxing than driving that road. Also there's at least one privately operated shuttle-tour thing but I don't know how much it costs. over 6 years ago
