Yellowstone National Park is looking at returning a group of 67 lodge cabins in the Old Faithful area back to the inventory used to house park visitors.  As such, Park Spokesman Al Nash says the preferred alternative in an environmental assessment called the “Old Faithful Cabin Repurposing and Dormitory Construction Plan” was released yesterday for public comment. Nash points out that to replace those cabins as employee housing, a dormitory would be built in the administrative area away from where the public visits.  Nash says the plan also represents a commitment to properly preserve the historic cabins, and so an effort to restore them is included in the plan.  The Park plans to look at the cabins to determine what work needs to be done to make them suitable visitor accommodations.  However, he adds that the cabins have been there a long time and historically used for visitors. Nash says details of the plan as well as an electronic form to submit comments can be found online or may be obtained by calling the or mailing the park.  Comments must be received before midnight, February 26th.

    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
