Snowy Conditions Restrict Road Access At A Few Southwest National Parks


Winter weather restricted access to some national park sites in the Four Corners region over the weekend.

National Park Service sites announcing they were closed Saturday included Bandelier National Monument in northern New Mexico and Arches National Park in southern Utah.

At Grand Canyon National Park, officials say 25 miles of State Route 64 between Grand Canyon Village and Desert View were closed due to snow before being cleared and opened Saturday afternoon.  Other park roads were plowed but snow packed and icy at Grand Canyon.
