Yosemite National Park

In this Oct. 2, 2013 photo taken by Tammy Webber, a scenic view on her way to Glacier Point trail in the Yosemite National Park, Calif. is seen. By Tuesday morning, everyone awoke to learn that the government, indeed, had shut down. But the park hadn't quite yet. Those with reservations in the park would have 48 hours to get out. Webber decided to make the most of it and drive to Glacier Point and do a long hike. But too late: The road to Glacier Point already was closed. (AP Photo/Tammy Webber)
