Hey everybody! In case you haven’t heard, admission to all National Parks is free this weekend! That also includes National Monuments (like Tent Rocks), National Seashores (Assateague Island), and National Historic Places (Chaco Canyon).
Winter is a great time to visit National Parks! Even if you’ve been before or seen a thousand photos, experiencing a park in winter, under a blanket of snow, adds a new dimension to already iconic landscapes.
Admission fees to individual parks often run $20 and up and an America the Beautiful year-long pass is $80. I’ve bought a pass every year since college and I always get my money’s worth. I won’t be going to a National Park this weekend, but I have plans to visit the Taos Pueblo and attend a ranger-led pronghorn antelope ecology hike at the Cerrillos Hills State Park. Stay tuned for posts on both!
I hope you all get out and see more of the World this weekend! Enjoy!
