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.

Things like, “If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor isn’t strong enough to rotate a 42-pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, […]
  • Shoot some skeet if you’re feeling like a crack shot - July 18, 2014
    I shot at a lot of clay pigeons when I was a kid, but I never did it at an organized trap or skeet club. And I’ve shot at a lot of birds, both upland and waterfowl. I may not have been born with a shotgun in my hand, but I picked one up not […]
