Roads reopen July 7th

Although there are many special places to see in the United States, few offer a spectacular view similar to Cedar Breaks.  Come visit a park that offers you the chance to stand above 10,000 feet on a cliff edge surrounded by lush forests and flower-covered meadows looking into a desert amphitheater 2,500 feet deep, covered with incredible, multi-colored hoodoos.

From now until mid-May, visit spectacular Cedar Breaks National Monument in winter by snowmobile, cross country skis or snowshoes. Stop by our Yurt which serves as a winter ranger station on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the winter. Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, learn about the park from warm and friendly park rangers and volunteer staff, and experience the amazing solitude and supreme winter landscape. Note that winter season opening and closing, as well as Yurt staffing dates may be slightly earlier or later and are subject to favorable weather conditions.

Princess Festival



June 19-30, 2012
(Closed Sundays and Mondays)
9 am - 1 pm and 2 pm - 6 pm
Children's Discovery Garden at Thanksgiving Point

Now entering its fifth year the Princess Festival moves to Thanksgiving Point. The Children’s Discovery Gardens are transformed into a princess playland where pre-registered girls may visit princess stations throughout the Garden for photo ops, mini-performances, glass slipper fittings and more!

This year the Princess Festival is going to be slightly different than seasons past. For starters, your little Princess will have the opportunity to join in six different shortened adventures at your own pace and choosing, each 15 minutes long for a total of 1.5 hours (instead of one 40-minute guided adventure). This will make the groups of girls smaller (15-20 girls at a time), and make it easier to work your way around.
We are still finalizing the details of the adventures, but this year we are planning to bring you:

  • The story of the Magic Flute
  • The Twelve Dancing Princesses 
  • Everley's Princess Ilissa's adventure 
  • Everley's Princess Kadesia's adventure 
  • ...and more!

 *For more information and to register please visit WWW.PRINCESSFESTIVAL.COM


General Admission: $15/person for all attendees over 36 months old

Bryce Canyon National Park


Bryce Canyon, famous for its worldly unique geology, consists of a series of horseshoe-shaped amphitheaters carved from the eastern edge of the Paunsaugunt Plateau. The erosional force of frost-wedging and the dissolving power of rainwater have shaped the colorful limestone rock of the Claron Formation into bizarre shapes, including slot canyons, windows, fins, and spires called "hoodoos".

Did you know?

Just in case you missed Jody's comment on yesterday's post.



You can buy an ANNUAL PASS to all 397 of the national park sites for $80. 


The pass expires on the last day of the month in which you bought it. So...if you were to buy that pass, say...on May 1st 2012, it wouldn't expire until May 31st, 2013. You would actually have access to all 397 park service sites for THIRTEEN months, rather than the twelve months. Two people can sign the pass (and they often ask for picture ID), but as long as one of you is in the vehicle or in your group as you stop at the entrance station/front desk, everyone in your car gets in free!



The pass will get you in for free. If you want to do a special activity in that park, like go on a cave tour or something of that nature, you may have to buy a ticket/pay for that certain activity--depends on each individual park and what they offer.


That annual pass will get you into other federal/non-NPS sites such as...American Fork Canyon (managed by the Forest Service) and Red Rock Canyon near Las Vegas (managed by the BLM)...ALL YEAR LONG!


To find out more about the National Park Service go to nps.gov. It's the official website.


Thanks so much Jody!
