The Grand Canyon is welcoming tourists back after Arizona struck a deal with the federal government to reopen the national park. Crews began removing closure signs, opening restrooms and restocking Saturday morning. The first gate opened just before 6am. Arizona is paying the National Park Service $651,000 to keep the Grand Canyon open for seven days. The funding includes cash from the state Office of Tourism, the town of Tusayan, and private businesses.
