    WHAT! I am going to Rocky Mountain National Park in June. We already have our plane tickets bought and our hotel (right outside of the park) booked. :( This wouldn't be our first vacation where we had to make a sudden destination change. Hopefully, everything works out.

    It would only be closed until the government can get there act together and come up with a budget. It would not be closed permanently

    My dad said that it will be all cleared up by June so we should be fine. Good to know we won't have to break into the park. :D

    Yeah but U.S. government < County sheriff, so I don't think he has much of a choice. But I guess it will just be closed for the duration of the closure, and that shouldn't last that long....
