I like your generousity and respect you for contributing to our NP,s above and beyond. I know with cuts in our park systems in recent years that extra donation is well needed and spent. I must also say I believe you should not feel guilty for I am assuming most seniors have paid their fair share in their lifetime to our great country and deserve this discount into our precious National Park system.
Thank you for your contributions.

IF you are old enough (I think it's 62) The Senior pass, used to be called "Golden Age" pass, not sure what they call it now, is 10 bucks.

Gets the entire car load in free

Can be used over and a over and a over again,, ONE TIME FEE of 10 bucks and you get free access to the canyon for life of the holder. You get half off at forest service campgroiunds, COE campgrounds and assorted discounts (NONE better than admission to the Grand Canyon though) for the life of the card holder.

How many investments can you make where you get a 250% return even as you hand over your 10 bucks! and it keeps on returning after that? (I know of one, that's it).

Home is where I park it!

I got my freebie for being VA at the gate too.. Simply signed the paper saying 'I swear..' and off I went.

Check your home state too. You may be able to get a pass from the state too for some off or free. I know those that are VA disabled (any %) can also get a pass from FL whether you are a resident or not.

Back in 2001 my family did what we called the "Great Erosion Tour". In your case, start in the Grand Canyon then go to west into Utah. Over about a week to ten days you can see:
Coral Pink Sand Dunes
Cedar Breaks
Bryce Canyon
Kodachrome Basin
Grand Staircase/Escalante
Capitol Reef/Waterpocket Fold

From there on to Moab, where you can see Arches and Canyonlands

All this in a sort of clockwise navigation of the state south of I-70. From Moab if you exit south you get the cliff dweller stuff, Lake Powell, and 4 corners, out the north you get to Dinosaur.

Trees will be turning at the higher elevations in September, especially around Cedar Breaks, where it can snow pretty much any time of the year.
