You can also do dispersed camping outside the Grand Canyon on both rims. More desert like near the south rim and in forest near the north rim. The reason the north rim is closed in the winter is because the elevation there is much higher. Been wintering in AZ for about 20 years and more years than not(if my memory holds) there has been little to no snow on the south rim. In 1994 we went in Feb and found 2 feet of snow. Exactly one year later we went again and people were running around in tee shirts and shorts.

"Senior member" is due to total number of posts. I forget the number, must be a senior moment.

62 pass

If you wait to get your 62 pass you might be charged $80.00 instead of$10.00 that was the talk on the national park system web site a while back ? I guess they need to raise the rates for 2017 ?

Going from $10 to $80 for the Senior Pass seems like a huge price increase until you consider the fact that this was a compromise with the members of Congress who wished to eliminate the program entirely in order to cut taxpayer funding of parks.
Several states have sold off state parks to overcome short term budget deficits or have opened up park land to timbering , mining and oil production. The days of free or low cost camping on public land may be heading for a slow demise.
We use to be able to camp free on county land in our area.
Now you need to apply / pay for a permit and pay a camping fee
plus a lot of the land has been logged off and is no longer suitable for camping.
The logic is if you can afford a $20 , $30 , $40 K trailer and a vehicle to tow it , then you can afford the $50 a night camping fee.

Nice thing about being retired is the ability to travel whenever you want, the issue with some National Parks is weather. I believe the GrandCanyon is open year round as is Yellowstone, depending on road conditions, so you maybe limited to visiting some during the "prime season" which means crowds. Good luck.
Never in doubt, often wrong

Yellowstone: While there I purchased a jacket with the Yellowstone logo on it. It had a rather large tag that stated "Proudly Designed In The United States" and when I got home and looked inside it, the inside tag stated "Made In China".
With all the shops selling all kinds of stuff I would think they are making quite a bit of money.
