The Lone Star fire has temporarily closed the Grand Loop Road between Old Faithful and West Thumb, along with many trails and campsites in the area. It is unknown at this time how long that fire will burn and which direction it will burn. At this time, fire suppression will be focused on the infrast...

Dave Parker passed away on May 29

I learned from other forums that Dave Parker passed away on May 29. My condolences to Debby and his family.
