National Parks Are Free This Weekend!
This weekend all national parks in the country are free! Exciting news (although, an awful lot are free all the time). It's the first of three weekends this summer that parks nationwide will waive entry fees, at a hit of an estimated $500,000 a day. If you end up taking advantage, buy a lot of pie and postcards—the NP's are feeling the recession, too.

And for some inspiration, read our June/July 2009 cover story about nine ultimate parks with an essay by Ken Burns about making his new national parks documentary series. The photo gallery is also quite impressive.
