Hey everybody! In case you haven’t heard, in celebration of National Public Lands Day, admission to all National Parks is free this Saturday! The day is intended as a volunteer day so do your part by picking up trash or joining a trail crew at a National Park, National Monument (like Tent Rocks), National Seashore (Assateague Island), or National Historic Place (Chaco Canyon).
Admission fees to individual parks usually run $15 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. This weekend I’ll be visiting the New River Gorge National Scenic River in southern West Virginia, a place I know well and love.
I hope you all get out and see more of the World this weekend! Enjoy!
