Says Harrington, "I'm especially excited about the accessible lodging improvements since the first edition of this title. Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel renovated their main lodge rooms, and they now have five accessible guest rooms, including three with roll-in showers. And outside of the parks, there are some excellent accessible choices at two new properties - William Bridger Cabins in Gardiner and West Glacier Cabin Village."

According to Harrington, park concessionaires are placing an increased emphasis on accessibility. "From Xanterra's accessible Glacier Red Bus Tours to the accessible boat tours down in Grand Teton offered by Jenny Lake Boating, there really are a lot of options for slow walkers and wheelchair-users in the parks," she notes.
