Two women were fined for hiking in a Nevada park closed by the government shutdown.

Gina Borchers and her sister, Donna, wanted to hike Red Rock Canyon.

The women saw signs at the park's entrance that said it was closed, but thought that meant just the road and visitors center were off limits.

"We completely didn't think about the government closure at all during this time. And there's people hiking all over the place in the desert," Gina Borchers said.

The women parked their car outside the gate and after hiking for about 20 minutes, the women were approached by a park ranger.

They were each given a $275 ticket for creating a nuisance in a closed area.
