This weekend happens to be FREE Entrance Days for over 100 participating National Parks! For our local Colorado readers there are quite few wonderful locations to choose from.
Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park
Colorado National Monument
Dinosaur National Monument
Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument
Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve
Hovenweep National Monument
Mesa Verde National Park
Rocky Mountain National Park
I love to hike and to get outside and enjoy nature, and there isn’t a better a time to do that then when the weather is beautiful and entrances fees are free!
If you aren’t able to take advantage this time around, here are all the other times during 2013 that might work better for your schedule:
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
five days during National Park Week
National Park Service Birthday
National Public Lands Day
Veterans Day weekend
You can check out all sorts of additional details on the U.S. National Park website where you will be able to locate all of the parks that are participating as well as important information to make the most of your visit.
