This has been a very good year of mountain snow which feeds the streams and Basin this spring and summer. Just how good is partially seen by the snowplows trying to open the East Entrance to Yellowstone National Park where there’s 25 feet (yes, 25 FEET) of snow to move! The Park Service’s projected road opening date for the East Entrance is May 9. I don’t know about you, but I really appreciate and applaud their efforts! It appears we have weeks of high country winter to enjoy snowshoeing, skiing, snowmobiling and winter animal watching before the fishing and camping begin! What a place to be…we’ve got it all, right here!
