National Park Passes For Seniors WIll Surge Later This Year -- Visit Teddy Roosevelt NP; Get Your Lifetime Senior Pass Now For $10 -- August 14, 2017

This is from US News but this story is easily followed everywhere. Data points:
  • currently, seniors can purchase a lifetime pass to US national parks for $10 -- yes, lifetime pass to all US national parks for a one-time fee of $10
  • seniors: 62 years and older
  • the deal has been available for two decades
  • August 28, 2017 -- in two weeks -- The America the Beautiful Lifetime Senior Pass will go up to $80
  • thank your Congressman/Congresswoman -- the legislation was passed last year
  • $10 to $80? a 700 percent increase in price
  • for those under 62, the price will not change: $80 for an annual pass
I've never understood why there is a fee for US citizens to visit the parks they own, but that's another rant for another day.
