Zinke lowers his proposed steep national park fee hikes to $5

The road trip is back on! U.S. Department of the Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has officially backed down from the dramatic national park entrance fee hikes he proposed back in October. After fierce public backlash, he's now opting instead for a modest $5 increase for seven-day vehicle passes. His initial suggestion was to nearly triple the cost of visiting some of the country’s most popular parks to $70.
