Yellowstone Roads Begin Closing

October 11, 2012 Greater Yellowstone, State of Wyoming No Comments
Dunraven Pass

It’s a sure sign of the changing seasons.  Yellowstone National Park has announced the closure of some of the higher elevation roads.  Parks Spokesman Al Nash says last week, the high section of Beartooth Highway closed just northeast of the park.  Nash says travelers can still go through Cooke City and Silvergate to Cody, but the park has now also closed the entire road over Dunraven Pass for the season.  Nash says while other roads are still open for the fall traveler, that park visitor should not expect many facilities to be open.  Nash says there is only a handful of things that remain open, and you can still purchase gas at any of the park service stations by paying at the pump.  Nash advises, “If you’re planning a trip to the Park, you just need to be rather self-sufficient this time of year.”  Most of the remaining park roads other than those on the north end of the park close to wheeled vehicles on November fifth.

Our collie’s doing the same thing, and to a much bigger degree. At least the golden has some abilities that allow me to overlook […]

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer.
