Special day today. The National Park Service celebrated a birthday today (its 98th, to be precise). And as a present, it was offering free admission to any of the parks around the country.
Trust me, I’d love to have taken them up on that offer. Only problem was, I had to work today. (Need the paycheck so I can keep myself in hiking boots and trail mix.)
Check out the announcement here – and it includes listings of local events by state, some more info about how the NPS is gearing up for its centennial in 2016, and an online birthday card.
