    If you don't already have one, buy a National Parks Pass. One of the best deals in the world. Gets you into all the National Parks and Monuments for a year. Yes, there is usually a shorter pass line.

    I would think us 'older' Canucks would pay full freight... likely as it should be.

    Yup, but full freight is still worth it if you are riding across the US.

    Under the spirit of free trade it would be reasonable to establish a system of reciprocity. The Canucks can get into Yellowstone with their Geezer Passes and we can get into Jasper with ours.

    Our Geezer passes are no where near as good a deal as yours, but I'm all for reciprocity!

    Well, I entered today from the west at West Yellowstone about 11 a.m.
    In honor of all those who squawked about it, I did try to cut in front of the one car in the park pass line, but he was too swift and certain and got the jump on me. So I had to wait for one car, and he just showed his pass and moved on.
    I did have to pass about 150 cars riding thru' as these people act like they never seen a tree before.
    I only saw two bikes in the entire 100 miles or whatever.
    I guess it wasn't bike day.
    There was no rain, and the temp was about 60 all day. So I had to shed clothes.
    There was some good wind, but nothing compared to what I have seen in other places.
    I saw no animals but about 2 or 3 places where they were all stopped, some in the road.
    They did have a few of those large critters that look like beef right by the side of the road. Begging food scraps probably.

    LOL. You are sounding like a troll trying to get a response from the crowd...
    You're probably one of the reasons some cage drivers hate us.
