Slow season (so far) at Yellowstone


According to an item posted in the Harfort (Connecticut) Courant: “Fewer tourists compared to last year have booked advance reservations to visit the greater Yellowstone (National Park) region this summer. Industry leaders hope low gas prices will lure people to drive to national parks and other attractions in Montana and Wyoming.”

Lee Haines, of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyo., told the Billings Gazette that museum planners expect flat visitor numbers this year with a slight rise possible in recreational vehicle traffic. He said because many RV owners are retired, they have more flexible schedules that allow them to travel when gas prices are lower.”
