Human faeces, overflowing garbage and illegal off-road driving in fragile areas were beginning to overwhelm some of the iconic national parks in the U.S., where a partial government shutdown left areas open to visitors but few staff on duty. Visitors are entering without paying, and with no staff on hand, bathrooms are not being cleaned and trash cans are overflowing.
Grand Canyon National Park, for example, is open because after the last such federal shutdown the state of Arizona appropriated some revenues so that services such as shuttles and restrooms can remain open.
The partial government shutdown has been really crappy for some of the nation's most iconic parks. However, the number of visitors has swelled, "no one is at the gate", and "no one is collecting a fee".
"Providing visitor services is only a portion of what park staff is there to do", he said. Less civic-minded folks are illegally off-roading, tromping though delicate natural areas that are off-limits, and leaving behind mountains of garbage that can endanger wildlife.
