PORT ANGELES, Wash. — People who pulled into a ranger station at Olympic National Park over the weekend were given $125 tickets for “violation of closure.”

The Peninsula Daily News reports (bit.ly/1bU12WZ) three of the cars were a group of international students from Peninsula College led by host Kelly Sanders, a teacher from Port Angeles.

They pulled off Highway 101 at Lake Crescent, got out and posed for a picture behind the Storm King Ranger Station when Ranger Jennifer Jackson pulled up and wrote all three drivers tickets. Each carries the $125 fine for entering the park during the government shutdown.

The ranger, who isn’t being paid during the shutdown, was sympathetic and urged Sanders to appeal her ticket in federal court.
