YNP Opens More Entrances

YNP Road

The East Entrance to Yellowstone National Park will open on time tomorrow.  Spokesman Al Nash says as of 8:00 am, visitors will be able to travel through the park’s East, West, and North Entrances to many popular park destinations including Old Faithful, the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Norris Geyser Basin, and Fishing Bridge.  The road from North Entrance at Gardiner, Montana through Mammoth to the Northeast Entrance and on to Cooke City and Silver Gate, Montana, is open all year.  However, Nash says don’t look for much in the way of facilities to be open in the park quite yet. Nash says, “Things open up rather slowly inside the park.  If the service stations are plowed out, you can get pay at the pump fuel (that’s rather important), but we have very few commercial services that are open in the park yet.” The South Entrance Road is still scheduled to open May 10th, and Nash adds that when it opens, so will Craig Pass between West Thumb and Old Faithful.

    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. 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 […]
