Statistics released by the National Park Service Friday indicate Yellowstone National Park experienced a 29% increase in recreational visitation during May from what was seen during the same month last year.  Last year’s tourism, of course, was impacted by very late wintery weather.  However, this year’s count not only eclipses last year, but the park’s previous high total for May set in 2007.  Altogether, those entering the park for both recreational and non-recreational purposes totaled 344,041 compared with the total in 2007 of 264,203.  Year-to-date, NPS figures show 647,565 people have visited the nation’s first park for a 14.6% increase over last year.  Figures for Grand Teton National Park visitation were not immediately available.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
