The U.S. Capitol looms in the background of a sign on the National Mall reminding visitors of the closures to all national parks due to the federal government shutdown in Washington October 3, 2013. The U.S. Department of the Interior said October 10, 2013 it will consider re-opening national parks in some states that make special requests to Secretary Sally Jewell and can fully fund their own personnel.
