California's National Parks Will Likely Close During Government Shutdown

California's National Parks Will Likely Close During Government Shutdown

According to an article I just read, all of the National Parks in California are going to close during the government shutdown. This includes the big ones: Yosemite, Joshua Tree, Sequoia, Kings Canyon, Lassen Volcanic, Channel Islands and all the rest. Most of the park employees are going on furlough, so there is a good chance the parks could close within the next 48 hours. I think that its insanely ridiculous that the government is going to close all the national parks because of a dispute over healthcare. This is going to cost California a ton of revenue in lost tourism. I bet I vote for Ron Paul again in the next election.

Update: Most of the 401 National Parks are now closed. Even some of the websites are down.

In case you were wondering, the picture above is actually of the Mueller Tunnel that leads to the San Gabriel Peak Trailhead. These pictures are from 2011.
