We can all agree that a bear poops in the woods, right? But can we understand why there are balls of poop rolling down trails at Great Smoky Mountains National Park?

These sandhill cranes aren't celebrating Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve's 15th birthday today; they stop here during their annual migration in the spring and fall. But that's no reason to keep us from celebrating this sandy spectacle!

Zion National Park
On Saturday, August 24, 2019, a large rockfall occured near the Weeping Rock Shuttle Stop. A substantial piece of rock had broken off Cable Mountain. The rockfall hit the closed East Rim Trail, knocking down trees and showering visitors at Weeping Rock with smaller rocks, branches, and a plume of dust and sand. Shuttles were stopped for approximately 90 minutes as the dust settled. This video was recorded by a visitor on the Angels Landing Trail, across the canyon from Cable Mountain. It captures the rockfall a few seconds after it began, a view that we rarely get to see. Were you in the park that day? Share your story below. The Weeping Rock Trail and Weeping Rock Shuttle Stop (Stop #7) are closed until further notice. The East Rim Trail from Observation Point to Weeping Rock is also closed.
