The legislation which created our National Park system calls for them to be available "for the enjoyment of all" (or something like that). When you start imposing fees, you start excluding people. Yes, I realize it sounds like an exaggeration, but $20 is a significant amount of money to some people. And what's to stop the fees from being increased even further, once precedent has been set? Is there any reason the NPS budget can't be increased to cover basic maintenance? Oh yeah, there is: the Bush Administration.
