2. The article in the LA Times this morning (focused on Yosemite

and CA parks, but I'm sure nationally applicable) says gates will be closed and people arriving turned away. If you're already there, you get 48 hours to leave. I do wonder if they're going to scour the backcountry as well - most of my visits to places like that involve hitting a trailhead and getting as far away as possible...

One of the most jarring repercussions is the impending closure of 401 national parks that include Yosemite and Joshua Tree, among others.

"Anyone who's hoping to arrive, even for a day visit, would see gates closed and would be turned away," said Mike Litterst, a spokesman for the National Park Service. "There won't be any access."

Visitors already at park campgrounds or lodges will have 48 hours to leave.
