As most of you know by now it's one of my favorite places around here.  In the six short months I've been living here I've grown to love The Colorado National Monument. A chance to experience it for free is coming soon.

To encourage visitors to explore America's natural beauty, history, and culture, the Secretary of the Interior announces Fee Free Days each year.

In honor of Martin Luther King, Junior's birthday, the National Park Service invites everyone to be their guest at Colorado National Monument January 16th. All Entrance fees, including commercial tour entrance fees and transportation entrance fees, will be waived.

The waiver of park entry fees includes Colorado National Monument and the 129 other National Park Service (NPS) sites across the country that charges admission.
