Hiking And The Shut-Down: Overlooked Parks

AIR DATE: October 10, 2013

Rather than risk a $250 citation for sneaking onto the property of a national park or conservation area that's been closed during the federal shutdown, pick up some ideas for alternate outdoor destinations within easy reach of Las Vegas.
