62+? Get Yours….A National Park Senior Pass
The National Park Senior Pass—one of the best gifts a 62+ limited-budgeter could ever imagine. Think of this as a lifetime achievement award, payback for your taxes, toil, and grey hair.
Before you forget, click those lovely orange cactus flowers to zoom you to Senior Pass nirvana. And, just in case DustyCarMuddyBoots has lost the link, here’s a spare.
For $10 (plus $10 in handling if by mail), you can get a pass to enter US National Parks at no charge. Only divine intervention (ummm…meeting your maker?) will prevent you from using it ’til the end of time.
Muddy Boots loves the fact that many US agencies honor the Senior Pass, and not just the National Park Service. Here we go for handy information including agency links.
And……did you know the pass is not just for entrance fees? It offers some additional niceties for budget-challenged 62 plussers, including reduced costs at most federal campgrounds. Ka-ching!
DustyCarMuddyBoots wouldn’t be 100% practical without the all-important official form, criteria, and fine print. So, here it is: the NPS red-tape-information.
Ding! Ding! Crucial:there are passes for disabled folks and not just 62 plussers. If you are disabled and don’t make the age cut, MuddyBoots says consult this handy-dandy link for qualifications and whatever.
Need the Access Pass form ASAP? Voilà!
