Winter Activities - Countdown: 6 Days
August 19, 2012
If you are one of the few visitors who visits the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway during the winter, your experience will be vastly different than that of a summertime visitor. Gone are long lines of cars and motorhomes filling the park roads. Gone is the twittering of birds, the rustling of aspen leaves, or the background hum of voices. Instead, you are experiencing a cold, white wonderland.
