We're in a partial government shutdown, so what's it like to visit Grand Canyon right now? Let me tell you...

January 15, 2019  •  Fox News

The Grand Canyon National Park is celebrating its 100th anniversary with a partial government shutdown.

While a battle in Washington rages over whether the national parks should also be closed 'til the shutdown ends to protect them and their visitors, thousands of tourists have continued streaming into this breathtaking, majestic gorge 6,800 feet above sea level, one of the seven great natural wonders of the world. Although some national parks have been forced to close or have been reportedly plagued by vandalism, overflowing trash containers and overwhelmed water and sewage systems, the Grand Canyon's mystique is undiminished.

More than two dozen Justice Department officials and law enforcement officers said in recent interviews that no recent attorney general was as appreciated within their community as Sessions, the 71-year-old former senator from Alabama, who was fired the day after the midterm elections, presumably for having recused himself from supervising the DOJ's inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign.
