Winter is on its way, and has already arrived in some parts of the country, but vestiges of fall remain elsewhere. Take a few minutes to enjoy the fleeting colors of fall in Yosemite National Park via this video produced by Steven Bumgardner as part of his Yosemite Nature Notes series made possible by the Yosemite Conservancy.

One of the most exciting and intriguing ways to experience Dinosaur National Monument is from a raft floating down either the Green or Yampa rivers as they course through this magnificent landscape. And if you want to land a permit for a private float trip, the Park Service is making it a tad bit easier by moving the application process online.
