It got cheaper this week to visit Glacier National Park. But not because the National Park Service is rolling back its entrance fees. Not exactly, that is. At Glacier, the fees automatically drop when the park moves into the winter season.
One of the interesting aspects of a park ranger's job is the knowledge that every day brings the possibility of a new—and frequently unusual—experience. That was definitely the case for me one day at Willow Beach, Arizona, a popular fishing spot in Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
