Driving into the Park

[Posted Tuesday, November 11 (This one actually made it into the printed notes.)]

There is a daily use fee of $6 per day per auto. We have made a special arrangement with the park whereby you can purchase passes for several days at once. We strongly urge you to purchase all the passes you need when you first enter the park. This will greatly facilitate the flow of vehicles into the park on subsequent days. Of course, having exact change helps, too.

On Sunday we will be utilizing buses to shuttle people up to and back from a remote part of the park. On their return route, these buses have to come through the main park entrance, the same entrance where you purchase your parking pass (or, hopefully, where you flash the one you have already purchased). There is a lane on the left side of the parking kiosk that is ordinarily closed but that will be open on Sunday only for the buses. Please stay to the right as you enter so that the buses will be able to access this left lane.
