If you're looking to book a last minute day trip to the national parks, entrance fees will be waived on Saturday, April 21.
Saturday marks the start of National Park Week and is one of four fee-free days the National Park Service is offering this year. (The others are Sept. 22, National Public Lands Day, and Veterans Day, Nov. 11.)
Arizona has three national parks: most notably, Grand Canyon National Park; Petrified Forest National Park and Saguaro National Park.
Much needed rain/snow showers here today - however tomorrow, sunny weather with a high of 64°
