"Shannon at EnjoyYourParks did a fabulous job for us. She is incredible. She catered our trip based on our needs and what we wanted to do and see during our trip. We loved the App that we could use during our trip. Shannon was available 24-7. Shannon knows many of the owners at the places we stayed so we were welcomed with open arms. Definitely will use Shannon for future trips." -Jeff & Debbie W, Burbank, WA

"Shannon is the absolute best vacation planner. Working with our parameters, she planned every detail of our trip to Yellowstone, the Tetons and Glacier National Park. Places to stay, dinner reservations where possible, activities such as a Wildlife Tour and a Chuck Wagon dinner, directions and many, many tips about what to see and where to go (even how to find places to park!). Shannon was in constant communication during the planning phase as well as during our trip. She knows these parks and the areas inside and out. She truly has exceeded expectations and I highly recommend her services."

From where to hike, roads to drive on, bear spray and even what type of socks to wear you were invaluable. You kept us from making mistakes and even gave us alternative itineraries depending on weather and road conditions. You even gave us alternatives depending on our energy level. Without your guidance we would not have enjoyed our trip as much as we did. We were so impressed with your patience and attention to detail. You are so kind and generous with your time I would highly recommend you to anyone and certainly plan on using your services again for another trip."

Unfortunately some where still closed due to snow such as the Highline trail, Siyeh Pass and Piegan Pass. Our first day we hiked Avalanche Lake trail. It was beautiful. We then had a rainy day but made the best of it and walked along the GTS road while it was still closed and had it practically to ourselves. We walked from Jackson Glacier Overlook to almost Logan Pass and had wonderful views of the mountains including a Grizzly bear. The next day we loved hiking Grinnell Glacier Trail. It was fantastic! The following day the road opened and we drove along GTS road and hiked to Hidden Lake which was a challenge with lots of snow still there. Our favorite and most challenging hike was Dawson Pass where we almost made it to the summit of Mt Helen. Spectacular! We had our adventures though and did not make it in time for the boat on the way back and ended hiking/walking about 13 miles. On our last day we were exhausted and we enjoyed the West side again and lake Mcdonald area. Thank you so much for making this all possible for us. It was just awesome!!"

"Shannon exceeded our expectations beyond belief. She put together a wonderful itinerary for GNP and Yellowstone. The hikes and activities she chose for us were so perfect. The stop on the way back to Salt Lake City at lava hot springs was an amazing recommendation. I highly recommend utilizing the services of Shannon and Enjoy Your Parks."

"Hi Shannon! I just wanted to let you know how much we have enjoyed staying at Sawtelle Mountain Resort. It has been our favorite so far! Thank you so much for booking this place. We will definitely be back. Eagle Ranch was awesome as well. We have made such wonderful family memories and I could not have planned this without your help. We are so excited to get to Cody next. My son is hoping to have better luck fishing there at the trout ranch. Hope you are doing well."

"Paul and I would like to thank you Shannon for the outstanding job you did planning our vacation to Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Every day was magical, from the wildlife tour, the whitewater rafting trip, the horseback ride and the boat tour. Your itinerary was a masterpiece. And our lodging was an absolute dream. We can't thank you enough. You are a treasure and we are going to tell everyone we know who's planning a trip out West about you. We can't thank you enough. This was a fantastic vacation, and it's all because of you Shannon."

"Shannon saved my family's vacation! I thought I could easily handle planning our Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton trip, but the further I got into it, the more of a nightmare it became. I couldn't find the lodging that fit within our budget, and the car rental situation was horrific. Plus I had no idea where to go and how to go about touring these three parks. The more I researched on the web the more confused I became. When I discovered Shannon, I was practically in tears I was so frustrated. Even though she only had two weeks before we were getting on the plane from Asheville, she went to work and did her magic. She spent hours and hours revamping our lodging and itinerary, and found us a reasonably priced rental car when no cars were to be found anywhere. I still have no idea how she pulled all of it off but she single handedly saved our trip. And not only did she save it, it ended up being the best vacation our family has ever taken. Looking back, if I had not found Shannon, our vacation would have been a very expensive disaster. Shannon is a miracle worker when it comes to planning vacations in these three parks... I guess that's where 40 years experience comes in! I am recommending her to everyone I talk to. She is wonderful."

"Shannon was an exceptional planner, planning our trip to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. We had a wonderful trip. She answered all my questions and was very quick to respond. I would highly recommend this trip with Shannon as the planner. It took a lot of stress off me on trying to figure out places to stay. Thank you Shannon."

"We arrived safely back to a rainy, foggy Atlanta (there was some tropical storm passing on the eastern coast over the weekend, lots of rain). I wasn't able to keep up with daily updates, but we followed your itinerary and wow, we saw tons of things. We saw a grizzly on our way to the Grand Teton (very close, it was crossing the road ahead of us and stopped to stare at us). After hiking to Hidden Falls and then to Inspiration Point (didn't go any further, it was becoming so demanding for my autistic son that has a fear of heights), we had a wolf darting parallel to us for a few hundred yards on Antelope Flats and then we saw a moose and its calf on Gros Ventre (that moose was easily 7 feet tall). Our drive to Red Lodge was equally eventful. We were stuck in a 20min bison jam in Lamar Valley (exactly at the Soda Butte Cone). This time they were so close that their foul smell was noticeable; my sons laughed at their calves jumping back and forth on the road. We ate at Cooke City, then hit the Beartooth Hwy. Wow! We stopped at many pullouts and just sat on the rocks on the side of the road to breathe the cool air, in absolute quietness. My wife was so scared on those winding roads going down, it was hilarious. Oh, and my kids had a quick snow fight up there (we only see snow once a year here in GA, and it is generally no more than 1". We really had a great week in WY and MT, and it is thanks to you. I am attaching 2 pictures (we are still going through the thousands of pictures we took). You will recognize both places I am sure - one is with the entire family and the other is of my middle son (autistic) admiring the Grand Tetons at a very specific spot you will recognize. Again, thank you a bunch, we are very grateful."

"WE LOVE LOVE LOVED OUR TRIP! YOUR ITINERARY WAS A DREAM! THANK YOU SHANNON FOR ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK!!! YOU ROCK!"-Tyler and Kristine, Salem, OR
June 12, 2021"I am an experienced traveler and have utilized many travel planning services in the past 30 years, and I can honestly say that Shannon Biegel is by far the best travel planner I have ever worked with. My Yellowstone-Teton-Glacier trip that I just returned from was nothing short of perfection. Her incredible attention to detail, her passion for what she does, and her ability to find outstanding lodging and tours when everything appears to be booked up is amazing. And her knowledge of these parks and surrounding areas is priceless. Not only is she a very kind person, but she truly cared that I have a great trip. I really enjoyed working with her. Shannon Biegel is the best kept secret in the travel industry, but not for long because I am telling everyone I know about her."-Patricia, Miami, FL

"Hi Shannon. We just had the best vacation ever, and it's all because of you! Where do I begin? Your itinerary was nothing short of PERFECT! We loved every place and activity you recommended. The kids were in heaven the entire time, as well as Tom and myself. The white water rafting on the Snake was unbelievably fun and we even got to see grizzly 399 and her 4 cubs! Our cabin rentals were all fantastic the entire trip and you saved us sooooo much money. The drive over the Beartooth Highway was unforgettable, and both wildlife tours were awesome! And Tom can't stop talking about that 4 pound cutthroat he caught on the Snake River... his guide was so nice and professional. It was the highlight of Tom's trip. We are all so happy and satisfied. I AM SO GLAD I FOUND YOU SHANNON! This vacation through the Tetons and Yellowstone would have been a disaster if the planning had been left up to me. It was a nightmare trying to figure it all out on my own. I had no idea what to plan or where to stay because I've never been there before... and the internet is so confusing with all the different advice and such. It's a miracle that I discovered you and it completely saved our trip. My family thanks you from the bottom of their hearts for all of your hard work and countless hours putting it together. If was obvious from the start that you sincerely love what you do and you sincerely cared about providing us the best vacation possible. We will never, ever forget this dream vacation and we will never ever forget you! Thank you again Shannon!"

"After being caged up for a year because of the Covid-19 pandemic, my husband and I abruptly decided on a Tuesday morning that we would take a two-week driving vacation out west. We had rehearsed it in our minds a hundred times over the 30 plus years we have been married. We own our business, so we made the announcement that we would be leaving the following Saturday. At that time, we had no idea where we would stay or what our route would be. I found Enjoy Your Parks on the web, and after studying the web page, I contacted Shannon. Within three days, she had dotted every I and crossed every T of our two-week trip. To our intense delight, Shannon seemed to intuitively know what our itinerary should be. Every place we stayed was just the proper driving distance from the other, each with a unique experience. She knew where to go, how long to visit, and what to do while we were at each place. Our trip took us through the Bad Lands and the Black Hills of SD and then on to the Lamar Valley within Yellow Stone National Park. Everything was perfect, from the rustic Frontier Cabin in Wall, SD, to the Alpine Hotel in Hill. We traveled all over the Bad Lands and the Black Hills, exploring everything we could find. The wildlife encounters were incredible, with more to come. From Hill, we tackled the 7-hour drive to Mammoth Hot Springs, MT, where we stayed a night at the fancy, dancy, Mammoth Hot Springs Resort. Here we soaked in the natural spring waters and enjoyed one of the most delicious meals ever. From there, we traveled through the Lamar Valley to Cook City, population 83. The wildlife tour with Audra was fantastic, and I can’t say enough about the strange little town. After two nights there, we moved on to West Yellow Stone for three nights in the Holiday Inn. Then our trip took us south to Jackson, WY, where we stayed at the beautiful Trail Creek Ranch. After another fun Wildlife tour with Jim, we knew that we had seen every animal that lived in Yellow Stone. I can’t say enough about how relaxed and fun this trip was. We could not have made a dream come true without Shannon. She nailed it!"

"We can't thank you enough Shannon. Steven and I had the absolute BEST vacation we've ever had, and we owe it all to you. Your countless hours putting this together, and your expertise really paid off... we never could have done this without you. How you made everything gel together between Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier still amazes us... and we loved Virginia City by the way! Our cabins, our car rental, our itineraries were perfect. You not only saved us an incredible amount of money, but you made our vacation a thousand times better than what we would have put together. You know these parks like the back of your hand, and you knew exactly what we'd enjoy. We are telling everyone we know about you. Steven and I again thank you. What you did for us was priceless!"
Sandee and Steven, Dallas, TX
"Shannon you are amazing!!! The care and time and detail you put into my Yellowstone-Glacier trip was far beyond the call of duty, but I sure appreciate it because I had the time of my life!!! I will forever be grateful to you. I'm so glad Jan referred you. You are a gem. The trip was nothing short of spectacular. I can't recommend you enough to anyone wanting to vacation in Yellowstone or Glacier park, in fact, I just told my sister about you and she'll be calling you."
Susan J, Boston, MA
"I cannot even begin to calculate how much money you saved us on our vacation out west And at the same time you designed our dream itinerary. If we had to do this all ourselves, I'm quite confident we would have failed miserably! You are so good at what you do. Thanx a million."
Ron & Paula T, Lexington, KY
"What we appreciate is not only the fact that you put together an incredible itinerary for our Yellowstone Park trip, but you were there for us DURING our vacation when we had questions!"

"On behalf of the entire family, I really want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Everyone had the time of their life, from the cowboy chuckwagon, to the white water rafting and the horseback riding. And of course the wildlife tour in Grand Teton Park where we got to see grizzly 399 and her four cubs!!! the entire trip was awesome! The kids haven't stopped talking about it. I feel so blessed that we found you. Mark and I want to take the kids to Glacier Park next year, so you'll be hearing from us again very soon!"
