DENVER (AP) - Admission to state parks is free Monday in Colorado's annual tradition to marks its anniversary of statehood.
    
The state's 42 state parks will still charge camping fees, but admission is free on Monday.
    
 Colorado became a state on Aug. 1, 1876, under President Ulysses S. Grant.
