Permits free

Credit card in hand, I attempted to buy a current permit, only to find that they are now free. Therefore, no one has any excuse for not obtaining one, and thus, through some perhaps unintentional ignorance, cop a $1000 to $2000 fine.

In addition, the more that do will make it easier for the local rangers to police those who can walk but choose not to do so because they are in a hurry.

Sometimes the Government does nice things.
