Sneaky Grand Canyon Hikers Headed to US Court They tried to get around the shutdown By Newser Editors and Wire Services Posted Oct 9, 2013 11:31 AM CDT 78 comments Comments The Grand Canyon National Park entrance is blocked off Tuesday. (AP Photo/Matt York) (Newser) – Determined hikers trying to get into the Grand Canyon despite the government shutdown will end up in federal court for their trouble. Park rangers—the remaining few who haven't been furloughed—have issued 21 citations to people found inside the national park despite its closure, reports the AP. All the citations require a court appearance. It's a similar tale at Grand Teton National Park and, to a lesser extent, at Yellowstone, reports a separate AP story.
