Free Admission to the National Parks this Saturday June 9th
Totally impromptu. I'm in my element here. There's nothing like the Badlands. "Let sculptors come to the Badlands. Let painters come. But first of all the true architect should come. He who could interpret this vast gift of nature in terms of human habitation so that Americans on their own continent might glimpse a new and higher civilization certainly, and touch it and feel it as they lived in it and deserved to call it their own. Yes, I say the aspects of the Dakota Badlands have more spiritual quality to impart to the mind of America than anything else in it made by man's God." -Frank Lloyd Wright 1935
I love going to national parks, but often the costs involved can be a little restrictive if you are on a budget.
In order to make the parks accessible to everyone, the National Park Service offers a few days a year that the parks are free to everyone. This is the best one of the year in my opinion– Get Outdoors Day on Saturday, June 9, 2012!
