Last fall Lee and I were in Estes Park and we spent some time in the Rocky Mountain National Park. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that because my husband is over 62 we could get a lifetime senior pass from the National Park Service for the crazy price of $10!
The words to the song America the Beautiful must have been written after visiting one of our National Parks. Don’t think if you’ve seen one you’ve seen them all.
I remember seeing the blue mist that seems to hang in the valleys of the Great Smoky Mountains only then realizing that’s why they are “smoky”. Did you know the Great Smoky Mountains are part of the Appalachian range which is the oldest mountain range in the US?
The Shenandoah National Forest and the Great Smoky Mountains offer some of the most beautiful fall colors you’ll see anywhere.

Think about it! Unlimited access to more than 400 national parks FOR LIFE for $10. It’s called the America the Beautiful pass. Run, don’t walk to the nearest National Park to grab this deal because later this year the price will go to $80, the cost of an annual pass. Go to https://store.usgs.gov/senior-pass for more information. Don’t worry you can also get the pass online it will just cost a little more and worth every penny.
