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.

    Where did that good old, brown, tan and black camo pattern go? You know what I mean. The pattern duck and goose hunters used to wear all the time. It was just splotches of dark brown, light brown and a little bit of black. Big splotches. I’ve been complaining for years that you can’t find […]
