Crater Lake National Park Trivia: The lake is the deepest in the U.S. and there are no streams flowing in or out of it. Snow covers the park for eight months out of the year, from October through June, but the lake typically doesn’t freeze over. The last time Crater Lake totally froze over was 1949. A 30-foot hemlock tree has been floating upright in the lake for over 100 years, showing its top 4 feet. It’s nicknamed the Old Man of the Lake. PC: Xiaoying Shi

In Yellowstone, male bison often butt heads during mating season (June to September) to get attention from females, but this behavior also happens playfully year-round. Don't worry... they have a very thick skull.

Hiking to the top of Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park is a bucket-list adventure, not for the average tourist. The trek requires that you are in top physical condition, acclimated to the high elevation and have the right clothing, footwear and pack. Nevertheless, the 14,000 ft peak can be appreciated from almost every corner of the park like this view from a hiking trail. PC: Bryce Bradford

Drive Colorado’s best-kept secret road trip. Stretching from Bailey to the north (which is less than an hour from Denver), to Alma to the west and Eleven Mile State Park to the south, there’s so much to explore from mining and railroad history, to outdoor recreation, to true Americana stops.
