      New Orleans 13 minutes ago

      Hi all, The misses and me are heading to New Orleans from Australia tomorow. We need to hire a car on the 17th and drop it off at Nashville on the 22nd. The cheapest i can find is $275 plus $300 one way fee (au dollars).

      Planning a Possible Road Trip

      New Mexico 11 hours ago

      Need to get from Fort Worth Texas to SE Arizona early March with probably 1 overnight stop but want to break up the driving into maybe approx. 4 hour stretches. Any suggestions for "must see" locations? Would prefer to avoid too much Interstate driving but conscious I am travelling alone so not wishing to go too far off track. My preferences are for scenery, science and nature as opposed to cities and shopping. Clean budget motel about half way?

      by ujge7639 Online Now Jan 31, 2010 at 5:03 PM

      Hi,

      I am traveling to Alaska on a cruise ship and have a full day in Juneau. I have a couple of questions that I am hoping some people have feedback on:
      1). I will be in Junaeu on May 6th. I plan on going to Mendenhall Glacier. I noticed they have 3 shorter trails. The question I have is whether these trails (photo point, trail of time, and morraine ecology trail) are gromed (do they remove snow from the trails) or will you need to be prepared to walk on snow? Will it be warm enough to walk around on the trails?
      2). I have read up on Glacier Gardens and seen mixed reactions (tourist trap versus good attraction). Thoughts?
      3). Is Macaulay Salmon Hatchery worth a trip in early May when salmon aren't swimming up ladders?

      Thanks
