In celebration of Founders Day 2013 the Grand Canyon National Park Service is waiving the entry fee to all visitors.
August 25 marks the day the park become the first in the world of its kind. Arizonas national treasure became part of the National Park System in 1919, although its original form was that of the Grand Canyon Game Preserve, formed in 1906 by a proclamation from President Theodore Roosevelt.
The Grand Canyon attracts roughly 5 million visitors each year thanks to its natural beauty and deep historical roots. With extensive archaeological resources and human artifacts dating back 12,000 years, it is no wonder that millions of adventurers flock to the Grand Canyon annually.
If you are planning on taking part in the Grand Canyon Founders Day celebration, remember to stay hydrated, seek shade, and wear light, loose-fitting clothing during your time exploring the canyon. Hikers can suffer serious injury, like heatstroke, or die from the extreme weather conditions, so monitor your water intake and other factors that may clue you into your bodys reaction to the heat.
