A brand new national park, some down home favorites and two commercial links that support the parks are among the topics for this Newsletter, the fifth in our series.
With good reason the Boy Scout motto is "Be Prepared." When heading out with your family to visit any of our national parks for an extended stay, it's good to have everything you need -- not too much, and not too little.
All the parks have ranger programs for children and adults, and some will even take the kids off your hands for an hour or two; but for an in-depth learning vacation, consider joining a field institute or camp such as these in and around Point Reyes National Seashore or Olympic National Park.
As parents, we're responsible for making sure our kids are healthy, rested and fed as well as providing challenges for their minds and bodies. With practice, it's not hard, even on the road. Here are a few ideas that work for us.

From Lauren Gensler: "We are taking a family vacation with our two daughters ages 8 and 13 to Kahana Maui. We are looking for some good hiking places easy-moderate. We like the lush waterfall areas!"
From Beverly Giewat: "I just booked two nights at Stone Canyon Inn (www.stonecanyoninn.com) and was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with this B&B. Also, any recommendations for restaurants?"
From Diana O'Neal: "We are considering staying in the Three Rivers area as a base for our day trips into Kings Canyon/Sequoia National Parks. Any recommendations on hotels in the area?"
From Carol Schwartz: "Although I was there two years ago with my husband, we decided that this area was so beatiful and filled with so many things to see that we had to make a repeat visit. My main objective was to hike down into the hoodoo formations at Bryce. It is something I didn't do on my first visit and I had regreted not getting to see this beautiful place from the bottom up instead of just looking at it from the rim."
From Susan Helpard: "Hi, I'm only going to be in Grand Canyon village for one day & one night. I will have a rental car. Any tips on good photo locations would be much appreciated, esp. for Sunrise & sunset. I leave this Sat am. Thanks!"
