Today was one of my favorite days in the Yellowstone ecosystem annual cycle--the first temporary road closures of the season due to snow. From the park website:
South Entrance Road, Craig Pass, Beartooth Pass are temporarily closed due to heavy snow.
Tonight, another annual event--we went to a bar in town for pizza since many of my coworkers are leaving tomorrow. Folks who have been attending for a decade or two said this was the biggest crowd ever. We've got a good crew and everyone is planning to return next year.
And, oh yes, earlier this week we received an email at work notifying us that the NPS had confirmed the presence of a mountain lion behind the hotel the night before.
