Bryce Canyon: Hoodoo You Love
A three-hour tour. A three...hour...tour.
Here in the expansive courtyard of a St. George hotel, Iím sipping pretty good coffee and slowly waking up. I sip the black rocket fuel and watch starched-shirt businessmen and pants-suited businesswomen chatter into cell phones, huddle around laptops, and buzz with the early morning energy of a seminar.

Rocky Mountain National Park News:
A winter visit to Rocky Mountain National Park
A couple of weeks ago, my family went to Frozen Dead Guy Days in Nederland. The parade was entertaining, but with the heavy snowfall and bitter cold we decided not to stay for as long as we had planned. Instead, we got in the car and headed up the scenic byway toward Estes Park. The weather quickly cleared as we headed north, and by the time we got to the Fall River entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, the sky was bright blue and the views were gorgeous.
