Apparently, while I was focusing on my apartment move, the National Park Service was busy updating and improving several of their parks’ web sites.

Luckily, other people noticed. Now I’m noticing them. That’s how the Internet works.

The newly-redesigned Tennessee Trailhead shone its spotlight on the new Canyonlands site, which features a great 15 minute intro-to-the-park video, as well as videos on responsible desert hiking, the park’s geology, and river rafting.

It’s a great way to wind down your office-time before the weekend … as well as adding fuel for your trip-planning fires.
