Due to heavy rains, flooding, numerous sections of roads washed out and rockslides all roads into Yellowstone are now closed. They are people apparently still trapped in the park.

That would be a bummer if you were planning a vacation there at this time.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

I'm doing an 8 day backpacking trip just southeast of the park in a week and a half. According to the ranger I talked to today, there's no flooding where I'm going, it's all more northwest of where I'm going in the park proper.

We had originally planned on going the 2nd of July but canceled a month ago . My brother and his family are still planning on going , we tried to tell them that the roads are gone and the park is closed but I guess he will find out when they get there .

The northern part of the Park looks like it will be closed for the rest of this season. There's no way they are going to be able to reconstruct those roads before the end of summer. That's going to concentrate everyone into the southern part of the Park and make traffic and congestion that much worse.

I saw videos from the air of the roads. A lot of damage to the roads in the video. It is going to take major reconstruction to rebuild these sections of the roads.

The South Loop road will reopen some time sooner than later.
Reservations are now needed for entry through the South or West Gate.
June 19 is date for closure length at this time.
