Among the many casualties of the recent government shutdown were cancelled plans for visits to National Park Service areas. October is a popular month for many travelers, since in many parts of the country this season can offer some of the most pleasant weather of the year. In some locations, fall color is another major incentive for a road trip.
Now that parks have reopened, do you have plans for a trip that you'd put on hold due to the shutdown? If so, what are your park destinations? Do you have any specific reasons for fall travel, such as autumn foliage, hiking, or camping?
Whatever your destination and plans ... safe travels!
