    Just wanted to remind those on the forum that the price
    for a Lifetime Senior Pass for the National Park system
    will be going from $10.00 to $80.00 soon.

    I am not good at links, but if you go to nps.gov they explain how to
    get one.

    We got ours by going to a local National park and filling out the paperwork. $10.00 cost in person.

    You can apply online, but it cost another $10.00

    Great way to enjoy our great Park system.

    Wow, that's a big increase. I have quite a few National parks within driving distance of me but I won't go alone.

    Have gone to all of them nearby when my ex was not my ex....don't know what it cost because he paid.

    I may get one online anyway though...just in case.

    I've had a senior pass for many years but never use it anymore.

    I'm still debating if I should get one. If I ever meet someone and stay here, yes, I would use it. But those chances are slim since I'm not looking.

    If it was $10 online instead if $20, I'd go for it....but $20 to me is too much for nothing. I'll have to see what it costs to get into a park without a pass.

    That's OK, Chrissy, when you meet someone, he can pay the $80.;)

    My wife has one. No National Parks here to use it on, but when/if we move back to Colorado, we'll definitely go back into Rock Mountain NP using the Senior Pass. Love looking at those big racked Bull Elk there.
