For the 2021 summer season, campgrounds in Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks will require reservations through www.recreation.gov, which can be made up to one month in advance.
Booking a campsite at a popular national park has become a real bear.
We’ve been checking (… and checking, and checking …) for availability at some of our favorite national park camping spots around the West. Bottom line: It’s tighter than we’ve ever seen it.
As we slowly return to normal after a year of pandemic restrictions, more people than ever are planning to hit the road in the coming

Expansive vistas, serene lakes, abundant wildlife and good old fresh air — what’s not to love about national parks? So many Americans have taken refuge in parks during the pandemic that 15 of them set recreation visitation records in 2020.

DENVER (AP) — At first, the trip unfolded as just an academic tracing of family history.
John Tonai had for years heard the stories from his father, Minoru, about the Amache internment camp in southeastern Colorado, where the U.S. government transported thousands of Japanese Americans from California and held them behind barbed wire and guard posts for three years during World War II. The family lore became a constant soundtrack … Read More

National parks have been a respite for United States travelers this year. As dozens of international borders remain closed and as cases continue to skyrocket, road trips and outdoor destinations have been the name of the game.
As Jordan Campbell was getting recruited this summer by Sacred Heart, the St. Peter’s Prep cornerback was doing some recruiting of his own, encouraging the coaches to take a look at teammate Ethan Rodriguez as well.
“Before I committed, Ethan wanted to get that Sacred Heart offer too,” said Campbell. “I was on the coach heavy, sending him Ethan’s film.”
Those recruiting efforts – both by school and player –
Why pay top dollar for a perfect Christmas tree when you can pay a nominal fee, tromp off into the woods and cut down your own?
While you might not walk away with the prettiest fir in the world, harvesting your Christmas tree from the national forest is a Pacific Northwest pastime – and a great excuse to get outside this time of year.

If nothing else, 2020 has been a year of new experiences. It goes without saying that many of those have been due to the coronavirus pandemic — wearing face masks, holding get-togethers via Zoom and worrying about toilet paper hoarders were certainly new experiences to me.
So with the year drawing to an end and an unusual holiday season arriving, my boyfriend, Max, and I decided to join some friends

In the movie, “Elf,” Buddy’s decision to cut down a tree in Central Park to decorate his dad’s New York City apartment was definitely illegal. But there is a way to cut down a tree on public property that is totally by the books.
The Electoral College is a political abomination. As I have written before, rather than protecting the influence of small states, it grants overwhelming power to a handful of states that randomly happen to have a close partisan balance, which are mostly fairly large. Worse, it allows popular vote losers to win — which has happened twice in the last 20 years.
This has been a tough year for anniversary celebrations. The National Sports Center for the Disabled turned fifty in 2020, but the NSCD wasn’t able to have a big bash — even if this anniversary is really something to celebrate.
