Plows Meet in Yellowstone

April 18, 2013 Greater Yellowstone, State of Wyoming No Comments
Sylvan Plows

Just before noon yesterday WYDOT plows met the Yellowstone National Park road crew west of Sylvan Pass. The WYDOT team has finished its part in opening the East Entrance of Yellowstone. Now Park Service plows are to take over from there and the East Gate to Yellowstone will open on schedule, May 3rd, barring unforeseen weather. Plowing was paid for by the Cody Country Chamber of Commerce, the City of Cody, Park County and many private donors. WYDOT finished early and under budget according to the Department of Transportation. Meanwhile, WYDOT is also working to open the South Entrance to the Park from Jackson by May 10th. Those plows are now near Lewis Lake and are to meet the park plows south of Grant Village. Wyoming Governor Matt Mead praises the financial support for the effort from Park and Teton Counties. Mead also thanked Yellowstone officials for being willing to work with Wyoming and the gateway communities to accomplish this task.

Listen here to Gov. Mead commenting on effort.

And I’ve been awakened in the night to the sound of thundering hooves receding down the trail toward the trailer. None of those situations […]

  • Diapers weren’t a magic bullet for staying cool - July 25, 2014
    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
