Bay Area residents are starting to see evidence of the government shutdown at some national parks.
Muir Woods and Stinson Beach will be closed Sunday, and Alcatraz is open but there are no ranger led tours.
Yosemite National Park in California is open to visitors despite the government shutdown but there'll be nobody to greet them, help them navigate the trails or even make sure they're in the right campground. Since no rangers are working the front gates, entrance is free.
"It's clearly not the optimal service that we want to provide to the visitors, but with the lapse of appropriations and the situation we're in, we're just doing the best we can," said Scott Gedimen is a spokesman for Yosemite National Park.
Gediman says the park that boasts the famous granite cliffs of Half Dome and El Capitan can't pay all of its people so rangers are being furloughed.
