It's officially spring!!! Good news as we inch closer to summer.  I saw my first pairing of sandhill cranes. Birds are always a great indication of the changing seasons. Another great sign of spring is the shedding of elk antlers. Male elk or bulls of all sizes will begin to drop their impressive antlers.

Spring and mild conditions continue to melt the already thin snow pack. More and more bears are being spotted in the region as grizzlies continue to emerge from dens and search for winter kill carcasses in the area.

The roads are officially open for bicyclists.  Bicyclists are able to ride from Mammoth Hot  Springs to West Yellowstone. The roads are clear and ready to ride. Please watch for snow plows and other administrative travel on the roads. Riders are encouraged to be prepared, carry bear spray, and have fun!!!

Happy Birthday Yellowstone!!! 143 years ago, President Ulysses S Grant signed the National Park Act creating Yellowstone, the world's first national park and forever changing the landscape of the United States. As citizens of the world, we should all feel lucky to have millions of acres preserved & protected for everyone to enjoy.
