If you can't make the free days but have plans to visit a couple National Parks this year I highly recommend buying their America the Beautiful Pass for National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands.

We did on our Maiden Voyage and made so much use of it! Click the picture below of us at Old Faithful Geyser in Yellowstone and you will link to all 21 posts of our National Park visits on our Maiden Voyage.

Next winter when we hope hit the road again an America the Beautiful pass will be one of the first purchases we buy for it. I'm extra excited about it now because my girls are now old enough to fully participate in the Jr Ranger programs.

Not all National Parks offer Jr Ranger programs but many do. The site pictured below explains in detail about the Jr Ranger Programs and his (Sam Maslow's) journey of collecting 325 badges, patches and buttons at the time of this posting. In July 2011 he was awarded a certificate of excellence for his volunteer work with promoting the Jr ranger program.
