We’re planning a trip to the Grand Canyon this fall (#21 — 101 in 1001) so we’re starting to research the details of the trip.
I learned that Grand Canyon is actually a National Park which, like most National Parks, charges a fee.
The National Park Service offers a Lifetime Senior Pass which allows me and 3 other people or my vehicle and all occupants to enter any U. S. National Park.
Price of the pass — $10!
We visited our closest local National Park — Fort McHenry — to purchase it.
While we were there we watched an informational video on Fort McHenry’s role in the War of 1812.
Then Charlie got in on the action of folding one of the large Star-Spangled Banners kept at the Fort. So great to visit a famous place in our own backyard.
