Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Wisconsin shelters a unique collection of sea caves that becomes coated with ice when winter turns bitterly cold. With the long-range forecast predicting a colder and snowier winter than average for the lakeshore, you might consider a road trip there this winter. Arches National Park in Utah doesn’t usually get a heavy coating of snow, but when the white stuff falls it creates a wonderful contrast to the red rock that delights photographers.
The recoil of a black-powder musket would ordinarily be at odds with the operatic works of Rossini. But come July, you can spend a day in Logan and blend a sampling of the farm life of Utah’s 19th-century settlers with a modern festival of opera. Start your day at the American West Heritage Center (10–5 Mon–Sat; $6, $4 ages 3–11; 4025 S. U.S. 89/91, Wellsville; 800/225-3378), 6 miles south of Logan, where you can see Slick and Rough, a pair of oxen, while learning about pioneer life.
On Thanksgiving Day the window to comment on Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's proposal to institute surge pricing at 17 national parks across the country will close. Be sure to get your comments in before it does. Traveler believes this is a poorly thought out proposal that needs to be scrapped, not implemented. As we noted in an editorial:* It will hit families whose summer vacation schedules are dictated by school calendars harder than those who can travel to the parks any time of year.
Hatchet piece? You told us: "I'd say you kept it pretty clean.”
Also, Traveler didn’t make the EJ claim, Yellowstone Supt. did. Got an EJ contact?
Still waiting to hear from "one of the park's better known scientists” you said you’d connect us with. https://t.co/CIFHVeC4ww
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
