Enjoy our U.S. National parks for free on April 19 and 20.  Only 133 of our country’s 401 national parks usually charge an entrance fee. Saguaro National Park is near Tucson.  We’ve recently been to Tuzigoot National Monument near Cottonwood and it’s definitely worth a visit to see those medieval ruins.
