Deal of the Week: Get into national parks for free

Early heads up on this one: All national parks and monuments will be free to visit on Veterans Day weekend, Saturday, Nov. 11 and Sunday, Nov. 12, so head on out and see some nature! I suggest getting there first thing in the morning, because these free days are very popular. We drove out to Joshua Tree on a free day, leaving at 6 a.m. so we’d arrive early. We saw the sun rise over the desert and had a great early hike, leaving just as people started pouring onto the trail. Perfect timing! And enjoy them while you can, as there’s a proposal afoot to charge as much as $70 to get into Yosemite and the Grand Canyon.
