FREE NATIONAL PARK ............guest post by fellow blogger!

Both of our names begin with A and we both are probably a bit guilty of having some type A personality traits!   I do tend to write my name in type more often with the lower case "a"  or the fancy @ at times but
most of the time we are A's...............   Allison lives on the West Coast and I on the East ...........we are very different but also very similar in many ways.  We both love to "give" we both love to "craft" we are both "frugal" "bloggers"  "photographers" and oh yea GRANDMOTHERS..........the cool kind! :) :)

I have never met Allison but would love to...........I call her my West Coast Sista...........we are kindred spirits...............

See its that girl right here in this picture the one on the Right (yes they are both beautiful) but my allison
is on the right.............beaming............. who can resist?  I can sing her praises all day long but instead, I'll let you read some of her "stuff" and you will see ...........she's fabulous!


By my fellow friend and blogger:  Allison!
I love national park freebies!

America's Best Idea – the national parks – gets even better with several fee-free days at more than 100 national parks that usually charge entrance fees.*

Several times per year the National Parks Service throws open the doors to 100 or so parks that normally charge admission and offers gratis entry to families across the county.

January 15-17, Martin Luther King, Jr. birthday weekend, is another one of those times. So if you live near a national park, or within a nice day trip of one, plan ahead to take advantage of this excellent deal!

Mark your calendar for these other fee-free days in 2011:
  • April 16-24
    (National Park Week)
  • June 21
    (First day of summer)
  • September 24
    (Public Lands Day)
  • November 11-13
    (Veterans Day weekend)
Making the fun even more affordable, many national park concessionaires are joining the National Park Service in welcoming visitors with their own special offers.

Here’s a tip – many of your 394 national parks NEVER charge an entrance fee. So start Planning Your Visit!

Before you go watch the DVD/series America's Best Idea, a breathtaking documentary by Ken Burns about the history of our national parks. This is available for download on iTunes (and other sources.

Inspired? Started planning your trip? Well, while you're visiting the National Parks website you might wanna:
1) Join the National Parks Foundation - it's free!
