3:40 am
this is the "cbs overnight news." i'm erroll barnett in new york. thanks for staying with us. it is memorial day, a national holiday set aside to honor america's service personnel who paid the ultimate price for the freedom we all hold dear. a day traditionally marked with parades, barbecues and for many a visit to one of our national parks. this year if you'd like to spend memorial day in a national park, you better have a reservation. connor knight explain. >> reporter: at arches national park, memorial day weekend is typically the busiest weekend day of the year. this is what last year looked
3:41 am
like. the park had to shut down the entrance several times to control the crowd. >> all of the parking lots were full. there would be bumper to bumper traffic all along the road. it was a terrible experience for everybody involved and not good for the park resources, too. >> reporter: caitlyn thomas is the public affairs specialist for arches located in southern utah. over the past two decades crowds have more than doubled at the park. last year it received a record breaking 1.8 million visitors which meant a lot of days felt like memorial day. >> last year how many times did you have to close that gate? >> oh, gosh 158 times. >> reporter: wow. >> a lot. >> reporter: that's for hours at a time? >> yes. yes. >> reporter: in the nearby town of moab, reservations for hotels and res straents are hard to come by but this year for the first time ever the park itself is requiring reservations. >> hi there, how are you? do you have your reservation? >> reporter: from april to october, tourists hoping to
3:42 am
access arches have to have a ticket obtained via >> thank you so much. >> reporter: with timed entry, the idea is that we take all of those visitors and we distribute them throughout the day and throughout the season so that we can hopefully mitigate the traffic and also improve those visitor experiences. >> reporter: popular parks across the country are trying similar approaches. rocky mountain in colorado is requiring timed entry from now until october 10th. yosemite requires them through the end of september. in zion certain hikes have to be scheduled. if you are planning to drive up acadia's cadillac mountain or weaving through glacier national park's going to the sun road, you're going to need to book in advance. for decades the national parks have done a really good job with wildlife management, landscape
3:43 am
management and ecological management and i think they're just going to have to sort of turn their focus to people management. >> reporter: brian yublonski has been studying a number of approaches to deal with the record setting crowds. >> if you think about 50% of the park visitors are crowding into 6% of our national parks. >> reporter: over the past decade 63 national parks have received 34% more visitors. that can mean creating more shuttle bus systems like the one already in place at zion national park. it could mean taking some cues from the theme park world. >> create your best disney day. >> reporter: using technology to show what sites are less crowded and at some locations it could mean reservations. >> thank you. >> reporter: while many of the timed entry programs are trial runs for now, they could become permanent. >> i think some of those parks are going to have to do the thing that might not be popular. what we'll lose in that process
3:44 am
is spontaneity. i think americans like to be spontaneous. >> reporter: naturalist john muir wrote the mountains are calling and i must go. not that i must go at 2 p.m. on a wednesday because that's the only ticket i could get. >> the job is to protect the land for the people and it seems like it's being protected from the people. >> reporter: moab developer first fell in love with the arches 20 years ago. >> spontaneous detour? >> yes. >> the idea that a reservation system might do the same doesn't sit right. >> those people are on their spontaneous journey. yeah, the fact that you would arrive here and couldn't get into arches, that's disappointing to me. >> reporter: so far, that's happened to 10 to 15% of visitors. >> today you need to turn around. you can come back after 5. >> those tourists can always come back and visit outside of peak hours or try the night before for one of several
3:45 am
next-day tickets that are held back, but that might not work for everyone's schedule. he thinks more cars could be accommodated. >> they built the one entrance in the 1950s, one entrance, one entry road. the parking lots have grown a little bit over the years, but substantially nothing has changed in 70 years. so when i look at this, it's like isn't it time to upgrade the park? >> reporter: of course building new entrances and parking lots costs money and takes time. there's already a multi-billion dollar maintenance backlog in the parks. plus, the idea of continuing to pave paradise could be a tough sell. >> here we are in the forever business. we protect the parks for perpetuity. we want to make sure we leave them just as they are for future ag generations. >> reporter: they are
3:46 am
encouraging people to check out other venues? >> can i recommend a few other venues? our area? >> there are a select group of super popular parks. there are plenty of other under publicized places. only time will tell if these timed entry systems will stick around or expand to other sites? >> what's the feedback been so far from the visitors? >> fantastic. we have folks saying this is the best trip to arches they've ever had if they've been here before. they think people are seeing an improved experience and they are having better connections with the landscape while they're visiting. >> that sense of connection is difficult to quantify. for now by giving up some spontaneity visitors

3:51 am
very dignity as men. >> reporter: they spent 191 days on the front lines. more time in combat than any other american unit. their bravery mostly forgotten over 100 years later. >> each of the nine soldiers took a month. so this took 11 months in total. but when you look at the piece and you look at one figure, you're seeing a whole month of my life put into making sure that every detail was accurate. >> it jumps out at you, the dignity of the men. they're staring you right in the eye and compelling you to see them for the humanity, to see their american patriotism. >> reporter: in 1919 the harlem hell fighters came back home to a victory parade in new york, and despite their bravery and patriotism, they still faced bigotry and discrimination. >> it's a port train of these men but it's also a window, and not just a window into the past, but a window into the soul, a
3:52 am
window into the real vision of who and what and how african americans want to be seen in this country. >> reporter: last year the u.s. government awarded the courageous soldiers the congressional gold medal. >> thank you to this body for putting aside partisanship and helping right a centuries old wrong. never too late to do the right thing. >> it meant a lot here to have this piece here because it's next to the white house because it's reframing where they belong and it's giving them the acknowledgment they should have had. >> nancy chen, new york. now it wouldn't be memorial day without the sound of taps echoing across the land. here's steve hartman. >> monday at precisely 3:00 local time a call will sound and it will sound everywhere. it will echo past the fissures and fractures of our torrent country and ask americans to set
