The parks are going bankrupt. Their funding is non existent and they are reliant on massive tourism. At this rate- and with these god awful decisions the NPS might as well be flushed down the toilet.

Well the parks are reliant on tourism in the form of entrance fees. That has been reduced with a lack of visitation as the NPS is going out of its way to deny the public entry to our national lands. If you want to camp in camp 4 you know need to get a reservation one day in advance. And pay a $10 fee to "apply" for the permit. And thats on top of the needed computer and secure internet you must have in order to even apply for said permit- effectively a financial litmus test for entry.
And as always- the NPS budget is being raided for political purposes.
Here is $150 million for nothing

The long term goal of all this is planned destruction so they can "fix" the problem they created.. I feel bad for the entrance workers- their job is caput.. .Along with a lot of others...
