Experiencing a national park in the wintertime may just be the parks’ biggest secret. Winter transforms the parks into majestic landscapes you have never seen before – vast ranges topped with white powder, dusted trails with no crowds, ice caves and frozen lakes and rivers. Imagine strangely-shaped red pillars against the striking contrast of snowflakes. You don’t have to fly and spend exuberant amount of money on fancy hotels. A simple road trip will do.
