Grand Teton National Park is reporting a slip in recreational visits during April compared with the same month last year. Figures released by the National Park Service Visitor Use Statistics Office show 33-hundred fewer people werein the park for R&R amounting to nearly a 7% decline from April 2012. Inclement weather is considered largely to blame for that decrease in the number of park recreationists. Combined with non-recreational visits, park activity decreased less than a percent. More significantly, visitations overall to Grand Teton National Park this year are up 22% from the first four months last year. With the opening of facilities in Grand Teton National Park this week, visitations are beginning to pick up for the season.
