Free National Park Week: Upcoming!
A reminder to my fellow “outdoorsy” people: Saturday, April 17 through Sunday, April 25, 2010 is National Park Week, with free entrance at all 392 national parks here in the US. Check the list for events and a full list of parks.
Sometimes I mix up national and state parks here in Oregon… so for the record, Oregon national parks include: Crater Lake National Park, Oregon Caves National Monument, Oregon National Historic Trail, Nez Perce National Historical Park, Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail, John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, Fort Vancouver National Historic Site (kind of), and California National Historic Trail. Fairly famous national parks: Yellowstone, Yosemite, Glacier, Zion, Olympic, Grand Teton, Shenandoah, San Juans, and 384 more… Just the entrance fee is being waived, so if you plan on camping you’ll still have to pay up! America’s best idea, indeed!
