Certainly opens the door for instagram, youtube accounts...
Yeah totally crazy...


What about anyone that profits off their account and then post a picture in a NP, are they technically profiting off their NP pic?

Wonder what the wording of the law is.

It is because of questions like this that I posted it here, not the thread it was moved to. More of a general warning related to NPs.

Pretty cool. Yellowstone will be testing a self-driving visitor shuttle next summer:

Yeah, cool.
Will it reduce timing? My guess is no.

@Itttc  Zion NP: It seems like one has to order tickets for the shuttle bus (and limited stops.) I would start with either the Watchman Trail from the parking lot or Canyon Overlook Trail off the Zion-Mt. Carmel Hwy (IMO one of the nicest drives in the US.) Then take the shuttle and get off at Zion Lodge (5) and hike the Middle Emerald Pools Trail and continue to Upper Pools. Then head to Temple of Sinawava (9) and hike the Riverside Walk.

As always check the NPS website for updates.
And AllTrails is a great way to do research on hikes.

Thanks! First 2 trails are done prior to getting on shuttle? By foot or car?
