Officials of Yellowstone National Park are expecting a big turnout of visitors during the summer season.
K2 Radio reported:
Yellowstone National Park officials expect another busy summer season and they have some tips for you when you visit.
“More than half of the record 4.25 million visits in 2016 took place during June, July, and August,” Superintendent Dan Wenk said in a news release Wednesday.
“Whether you are visiting Yellowstone for the first time or the fiftieth, we hope you’ll take the Yellowstone Pledge and plan ahead for a safe, enjoyable trip," Wenk said.
Park officials said visitors should expect busy facilities and destinations, and delayed travel times due to heavy traffic and wildlife jams.
They also suggest arriving early or staying late, and avoiding main attractions -- Old Faithful, Grand Prismatic Spring, Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, and Norris Geyser Basin -- during peak hours.
