Yellowstone had over three million visitors for the third year in a row, despite an unusually late spring. Snow was on the ground well into May, and a few of our clients caught Yellowstone still sporting her winter clothes!

I tend to get reflective at this time of year. As colder weather sets in here in Colorado, I start reminiscing about the year's adventures. Recently, I was searching for the perfect photo to accompany an article I was co-authoring for a magazine, and before I knew it I was browsing through my photos from recent trips with a big grin on my face. Something as simple as a whiff of a wood smoke or a song on the radio can take me back.

Tracks & Trails would like to wish you all a bountiful Thanksgiving. This past year has been good to us and we thank you for allowing us to be of service to you.
As your family gathers around the table this holiday, why not think about planning an RV vacation for 2011? We can take the fuss out of coordinating a seamless RV adventure for several families and help make memories that you will share around the holiday table for years to come.

One of the things I love about my job is that leaving the office and going camping is considered work!
My family and I have made good use of that perk this spring, hitting the road several times since April. The plan always begins as a 3-day weekend, but it invariably turns into 5 or 6. Yes, keeping our knowledge up to date for you is a heavy burden, but it's a burden we bear cheerfully.

As summer vacation season approaches, certain destinations and dates are quickly filling up. People just seem to be making their plans earlier this year. We are already seeing RV availability declining and campsites filling up during peak weeks in popular destinations like Yellowstone, Grand Canyon and Yosemite. Yosemite campgrounds are essentially booked solid through August 15th. Fortunately, we were able to reserve campsites INSIDE Yosemite for nearly all of our current clients, thanks to a ruthless 6:00 AM assault by our reservations team on the NPS reservation lines and website.

The PBS series, produced by Ken Burns - The National Parks, America's Best Idea - has been watched by thousands if not millions of viewers either live or recorded over the past couple of weeks. This was an opportunity to watch a quality television series that showcased the National Parks in the United States.
