In the Northwest, forest service fees are climbing once again. Day use fees
will almost double from 3 dollars per day pass to 5 dollars a day per pass.
Season passes climb from 25 per year to 30 dollars a year. ( Only offset is
the new pass will cover Oregon and Washington forest) This is fine, but to
jump a day pass from 3 to 5 is a joke. This is all separate from National
Park fees which require getting out the check book again. Mt. Saint Helens is
one of the biggest cash cows in the Monument system, yet forest service is
closing three visitor centers because of visitor drop off last year. ( which
unplowed snowy roads accounted for ) Forest Service is going to change it's
name to " ScamCo " next season. Tax Me Baby!!!!!!!!!
