Outdoors Crater Lake increasing entrance fees starting May 15
Beginning next winter, the park will collect a $10 per vehicle fee for visitors coming to enjoy the winter scenery and recreational opportunities. The park has always been authorized to charge fees in the winter, but has not done so in the past. Keeping the park open in the winter is very expensive, and it is hoped that the winter fee might help repair and maintain facilities that are subject to extreme wear and tear when kept open during the severe conditions encountered at the park in winter. Entrance stations will not be open, but visitors will be asked to stop at the visitor center to voluntarily submit the winter fee.

Consumer Gel manicures- DIY vs salon
Traditional nail polish is rapidly being replaced by high-gloss, longer lasting gel formulas. Gel manicures are popular because they can last as long as 3 weeks. The polish is hardened onto the nail with ultra violet light. But gel polish at the salon is pricey- ranging from $25 - $35. So more and more manufacturers are offering gel polishes you can buy at the store. They give you the same high gloss finish for a fraction of the cost- without the ultra violet exposure you get at the salon.
