Are these guys completely crazy ? Why on earth should a national park be closed if the government shuts down ? I find this such an incredible b/s. If the govy shuts down they should simply not be able to collect fares and fees at the parks but they can't close them ! These are natural resources of our land !!! I understand paying to access in order to help funding their maintenance and stuff, but if the govy screws up ..... It's like that we are talking about an office where if it shuts down it just means that.... this are parks !!! I am astonished. Can someone try to explain ?
