Lightning Fires Burn In Yellowstone

Snake Fire

Cooler, wetter weather has led to reduced fire activity on the Snake Fire located just east of the south entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Firefighters are still monitoring the fire behavior, and will bring in additional firefighting resources if needed. Crews completed plans for structure protection around the park’s South Entrance and Flagg Ranch, in the event those locations are threatened in the future by a wildfire. All roads leading into and through the parks and the forest and all campgrounds, lodging, stores, and visitor services are open. The fire poses no threat to visitors or area residents.  Meanwhile, Lightning from recent thunderstorms has started a small fire in the northeastern region of Yellowstone National Park. The Druid Fire was reported early Friday afternoon.  It is located approximately two miles north of the Northeast Entrance Road on the northern aspect of Druid Peak overlooking the Lamar Valley. The fire is estimated to be two acres and burning in heavy spruce timber.  It too will be monitored by park fire crews.

However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
