Talk about ironies or irony.

Yosemite, like all the other National Parks, are CLOSED TODAY because of the Government Shutdown!

Today also happens to be NASA’s anniversary, the 55th. Much of NASA is closed too.

It is a beautiful park. I have only been once and that was in 1992. Would go there again in a heartbeat.
