    I bought my Golden Age Pass in September at Acadia National Park. My husband bought his three years ago in Yellowstone. Our “bucket list” is to visit every national park before we are too old to travel in our tiny RV. We have a map of all of the parks and have stuck pins in 2/3 of them already. We are so fortunate as Americans to have such incredible national resources.
