In a recent post about our trips thru the parks of Utah we made mention of the cost of the National Parks Senior Pass going up sometime soon. We got information from a reader that they decided to go out and pick up their pass right away to avoid the price increase. They were told when they went to a nearby National Heritage site that the increase will go into effect in August and it will go from $10 to $80. You can buy the pass by visiting an entrance fee National Park or National Historic Site or go to the online store (currently the site has issues with high traffic) and the official increase date is August 28th. We would also advise that if you are a couple that you each buy a pass since they are non-transferrable.
