It is a sad, sad time that all the National Parks have now closed due to the Government Shutdown. It is a shame that the people we have “hired” to run this country can’t seem to work together in order to make things works smoothly for the country. I hope for all the people traveling now to see the National Parks, that they will open up soon for you so you can see the wonder that they are. I know many of them are “bucket list” places to see. This is a beautiful time of year to be traveling to see all of the parks. Fingers crossed that they will once again, open up soon.
