Stay Informed
Road conditions can change quickly. Find updated road status on the park website, at visitor centers (Old Faithful, Mammoth Hot Springs, Canyon Village, and West Yellowstone), and by calling (307) 344-2117. To receive Yellowstone road alerts on your mobile phone, text "82190" to 888-777 (an automatic text reply will confirm receipt and provide instructions).

Springtime in Yellowstone
Springtime in Yellowstone means fewer crowds, opportunities for hiking at lower elevations, and skiing or snowshoeing at higher elevations. Wildlife viewing highlights this time of year include bison calving, bears recently emerged from dens, bull elk antlers in velvet, and the arrival of migratory birds.

Yellowstone Pledge
Take the Yellowstone Pledge. It’s a personal promise you make to yourself and the park. It can be taken anywhere: it doesn’t need to be taken out loud or in front of anyone. Here are the Top 10 Ways to put the Pledge into action. YellowstonePledge and encourage others to do the same.

Honk! If a bear comes near your car

Zitat

If a bear approaches or touches your car, honk your horn and drive away to discourage this behavior.
On Saturday, May 11, a black bear in the Tower-Roosevelt area put its paws on vehicles.
In May of 2018, a black bear previously fed by people in the Mammoth Hot Springs area approached a vehicle, put its paws on a door and looked into the vehicle’s windows. Also last May, a grizzly bear near Yellowstone Lake went up to a car and played with its antenna.
Bears that grow accustomed to people and view humans as a food source can become aggressive and have to be killed.

Noisy Yellowstone geyser roars back to life after 3 years

Zitat

A noisy geyser in Yellowstone National Park has roared back to life after three years of quiet.
Ledge Geyser is one of the biggest in Yellowstone’s Norris Geyser Basin.
The Billings Gazette reports the geyser shoots hot water at an angle up to 125 feet (38 meters) high and a distance of 220 feet (67 meters).
Yellowstone geologist Jeff Hungerford says Ledge Geyser is noisy because its water and steam must pass through a narrow opening in the ground.
Yellowstone has more than 10,000 thermal features and 500 geysers, more than anywhere else on Earth. Some geysers such as Old Faithful are predictable but most, like Ledge Geyser, erupt erratically.

Mount Washburn Trail and trailhead parking lot at Dunraven Pass in Yellowstone to close in August for improvements

Zitat

· The Mount Washburn Trail and trailhead parking lot at Dunraven Pass will close for improvements August 6-27, 2019.
· The trail and trailhead parking lot is located 4.5 miles north of Canyon Junction.
· The closure is necessary for public safety and will include the replacement of a deteriorated multi-tiered log crib that structurally supports the trail. Find a photo of the unsafe crib on Flickr.
· To replace the crib wall, trail crew will use cable rigging and fall protection systems affixed to fabricated anchorages constructed into the trail. A helicopter will deliver log pilings to the work site.
· Please plan accordingly.
· The Mount Washburn Trail from Chittenden Road will remain open.
