Celebrate The Holidays In A National Park

Utah's national parks are extremely popular during the warm weather seasons. Far fewer people visit during the dead of winter, but those who do often say winter is their favorite time to explore the parks. People often say they prefer winter because it offers more serenity, no congestion, and room to breath.

The scenery is often spectacular during winter. A skiff of snow makes the red rock look stunning.

The National Park Foundation is encouraging people to visit U.S. parks during the holiday season. It has compiled a list of festivities being held in parks around the country. In Utah, the foundation lists this item:

Utah - Golden Spoke National Historic Site - From December 28 - 30, visitors can take part in the annual Winter Steam Festival and watch one of their locomotives in action, as well as at rest in the same spot where the transcontinental railroad was completed over 142 years ago.

See the entire list.
