Free state park admission marks Colorado birthday
Colorado state parks are expected to be crowded as people flock to celebrate the anniversary of statehood.
The state's 42 state parks will still charge camping fees, but admission is free.
The holiday is celebrated on the first Monday in the month of August.
Colorado became a state on Aug. 1, 1876, under President Ulysses S. Grant.
