    10/11/2013: Utah National Parks to re-open!
    The state of Utah will provide the funds to reopen Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef and Zion national parks, Cedar Breaks and Natural Bridges national monuments and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area on Saturday 10/12 for at least 10 days. Additional days may be added if a federal budget resolution hasn't been reached by the end of that time.

    Not yet clear if this applies to the lodges at Zion and Bryce but I'll update this notice as information becomes available.
