    What is there to see in Big Bend National Park, TX

    Santa Elena Canyon (if the river isn't flooded, cross and hike into the canyon.) Sunset at the Chisos Mountain Lodge. Hike the Burro Mesa Pouroff Trail and the Rio Grande Village nature trail. Drive the Maxwell Scenic Drive. If you are in good shape, hike out from the Chisos Lodge to the Window for a stunning view over the desert. Several of the trails are easy, and handicap-accessible. Others are very challenging. See the official park website for details. No matter the time of year, always have plenty of water with you, and gallon jugs in your vehicle. The desert is merciless. This is a wonderful park that's impossible to see in one day but if that's all you have, go for it anyway! over 6 years ago

    How long would I need to have a good look at the Yellow Stone National Park? Do I need to camp out overnight?

    You could spend a month in that park and not have seen/done it all. We stayed in a relatively inexpensive motel outside the park -- no frills because we didn't plan to be in the room much anyway! Get up extra early if you are driving into the park or you'll get stuck in the traffic jam and spend half your park time in the car. Not sure if there are shuttle buses but if so, grab one. Must-sees are Half Dome and Yosemite Falls. Tons of hikes available depending on time, your fitness level. Best is to check the nps.gov site for maps and conditions. 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

    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

    Need a cheap but nice hotel close to or in San Diego for the end of February.

    We stayed in the Ramada Airport on Rosecrans. Nothing fancy but just a block from the sport fishing docks. Nice casual bar/sandwich shop just behind the sport fishing gear shop. Safe neighborhood, easy to get to the coast 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

    Is the zoo any good in San Diego?

    One of the best. Plan to spend all day! And you might have to go to the koala exhibit several time to catch them awake! Also the wild animal park is worth a separate visit. over 6 years ago
