The weather is supposed to be excellent this weekend — sunny and in the 60s, the forecast says — so it’s probably going to be a beautiful day to visit the state’s parks for free.

The parks already had one free day on Jan. 21 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but there are 10 more this year:
Visitors to state parks typically need a Discover Pass, which costs $10 for a day or $30 for a year. (You can get fined $99 for not having one.)
