Wesite Tracks Yellowstone Plows

YNP Plow

Yellowstone has launched a new where the public can follow the progress of the park’s snowplows as they chew their ways through the snow packed roads.  Park officials point out that the plows are currently clearing nearly 200 miles of primary roads, almost 125 miles of secondary roads, and about 125 acres of parking lots in order to open the park for the spring. The new website was put up by the park to allow the public a way to follow the progress of opening the interior roads of the park.  Additionally, the park intends to post photos when available of the plowing progress on its “Flickr” site.  Those wishing to track the plows’ progress can find the feature at http://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/plowing.htm

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
