for those that may not be aware, the America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Senior Pass is a lifetime pass and is currently available for $10 if purchased before August 28th. As of 8/28 the price will increase to $80. Apparently some state parks also honor the pass.
The online purchase is apparently backlogged and the website suggests going to a location to buy in person. Orders postmarked before 8/28 will be honored at the $10 cost but will take some time to process.
More detailed information is available at store.usgs.gov. on the website is a link to a list of areas where the pass can be obtained. be sure to check the column titled annual senior as a few do have No indicated.
In the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area these passes can be purchased at Falls Lake Dam Army corp office and at the Army corp office at Jordan Lake Dam (off Jordan Dam Rd).
My neighbor and I bought ours on Thursday. ID is required i'm assuming to verify age.
