National Park Week starts this Saturday with FREE entrance to all National Parks and Monuments on both the opening, and closing weekends of the 9-day celebration: April 15th & 16th and April 22nd & 23rd.
In addition to being home to one National Park (Canyonlands) and four National Monuments (Hovenweep, Natural Bridges, Rainbow Bridge, and Bears Ears National Monument), San Juan County, Utah is also within about 1 hour of two more National Parks! (Arches and Mesa Verde)
