Guess my wife and I are still kids, then . . . . .we dig using the passport, and the pic of me getting my Senoir Pass last summer at Zion is a treasure, far as I'm concerned.

If you enjoy souveniers, most to the National Parks I've seen in the last 10 years or so sell bandanas . . .. and what rider couldn't use another bandana?

Additionally, stamping the passsport means you go into the visitor cernter, and learn about some of hte programs offered . . . .we never would have known about the stargazing talk at Bryce if we'd not gone in . . . and it was a highlight of our visit.
