Yellowstone awakes in Spring

Yellowstone River Montana

It is springtime and Yellowstone National Park is waking up.  Animals are emerging from their winter sleep, brand new babies are coming outside for the first time, and our Park’s crew are busy clearing roads so that you can have access to it all.

Yellowstone is one of our most popular National Parks.  In Spring, there are far fewer people in the park.  That means less car traffic, less congestion, and easier viewing of the wildlife.  Be aware of changing weather conditions and be prepared.  Take layers of clothing so that you are comfortable anywhere from a beautiful 70 degree day to a sudden snow squall.

Spring is when the animals awaken.  This makes for great viewing, but also, make sure that you use caution around these animals.  Look for baby elk, bison, or bears.  Remember that mama’s are very protective of their young.

In April, the road is open to cyclists and hikers from West Yellowstone to Mammoth Hot Springs.  What a great way to enjoy the park with no motorized vehicles.  As always, be aware of wildlife.  

The roads of Yellowstone have started to be cleared  Currently the road is open from from the Northeast entrance through Tower-Roosevelt and Mammoth Hot Springs to the North entrance in Gardiner.  Call (307) 344-2117 for more information.  Now is the time to look for bears and wolves in this area.

Check out some webcams for up to date viewing of the conditions inside the park.  What a great way to see yourself there and get inspired to make those reservations.  Contact our local B&B’s for comfy lodging options and advice from those who have lived near the park for years.
