According to this site the price will increase to $80 on 10/1/2017.

I don't see it on the official site though.

Woohoo! DH will beat that deadline.

I thought he had already missed out. But we would have happily paid $80 - still a great deal.

We just received our senior pass in the mail yesterday. I wouldn't have known about this if not for this thread. Thanks to everyone for posting about this. DW and I are about seven months into our retirement and just purchased our new motorhome last week. Really looking forward to our future travels and getting getting good use from our senior pass.

Yipeee! I'll be 62 three weeks before the deadline. October 1 is the start of the federal government Fiscal Year (e.g., FY 2018) so that date makes a lot more sense than changing the regs/price during the middle of summer.

I have no idea what places are included in this pass, but from the sounds of it some sort of hiking is involved, or walking the trails. These type of activities fall into my non bucket list. I wouldn't do them for free. Now that they hiked the price I have an excuse, "Im on a fixed income." Ill stay home and watch the dog.

Yosemite is a nice "day ride" for me. Hop on the bike, ride through the park. Have lunch at the park and ride some more after. Then ride home.

Not a lot of walking.

There is a large cluster of buildings (stores, restaurants, hotel) right about in the middle (Yosemite Valley visitor center)

I ride in on 120 and out on 140. Real big loop -

I'm kind of in your boat, BlueCollarGuy. I tell myself I would like to go to national parks and put up a tent, but I never do. And I never daydream about it. So I guess I really don't want to. But I might want to in the future!
