TUCSON -- I visited Saguaro National Park this afternoon. Here are some images of the federal government shutdown. The park, a top Arizona attraction, was very empty. I saw one guy in a Ford truck with Texas plates and Airstream trailer who seemed bummed he had no place to go. Each day US parks are closed costs Arizona at least $2.7M in lost economic benefit.
