If you’re planning a trip that includes multiple national parks including Bryce Canyon & Zion Canyon, you might consider the $80 annual pass that provides entrance to all national parks, national wildlife refuges, national forests, and many other federal lands – more than 2,000 in all. The America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass is offered free to all active duty military members and their dependents; seniors, 62 and older, may obtain a lifetime pass for $10, some restrictions apply. Information on these and other pass options is available online.

Golden Access and Golden Age Passports are no longer sold. However, according to the National Park’s pass webpage, these passes will continue to be honored according to the provisions of the pass.

    Aside from the birkenstock and kayak bunch, it sure seems like we keep getting chased off those federal lands (ref. “national public lands day”).

    What’s to celebrate, since increasingly we can’t graze, hunt, harvest, mine, or ride?

    These days the only members of the public that can access our PUBLIC lands hug trees and rabbits. They have WAY too much control and need to be stripped of it.

    trust me there’s plenty of public land use being done by oil, gas, mining.
