More YNP Winter Plan Discussions

YNP snowmobile

More public hearings are in store for the area as National Park officials continue to work on putting together a final winter use plan for Yellowstone National Park. Among the concerns raised by participants in the last round of hearings were a proposal to limit entry to the park to only prior to 10:30 am, a deadline to outfit all snow coaches being used for tours to be outfitted with new “best available technology,” and a lack of provisions for those wishing to access the park privately.  Spokesman Dan Hottle says while some of the alternatives under consideration have been adjusted in light of the comments, the Park wants to hear public’s ideas for addressing the concerns as they write a supplemental environmental impact Statement.  Hottle says the Park is trying to keep on track to have a final plan in place for the next winter season.  Open houses to receive comments are slated for February 13th in Cody, February 14th in Jackson, February 15th in West Yellowstone, Montana and February 16th in Bozeman, Montana.

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    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 […]
  • Enzi Opens Campaign HQ in Cheyenne - April 17, 2014
    U.S. Senator Mike Enzi opened his official campaign headquarters in Cheyenne on Wednesday. Wyoming’s senior senator is seeking his fourth term in the Senate.

  • 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 […]
