Only a tiny bit of snow, and the roads were good. And the lack of people made it special. The photo was taken by an Egyptian woman who was visiting, so snow was an even bigger deal for her. That eruption in the background seems to be a regular occurrence.

That looks like Old Faithful.. Erupts every 60-110 minutes. Here's a link:

Thats not always the case, a few years ago the snow was so bad the northern roads in didn't actually open up until July 1st. I actually had to wait in line for a couple of hours one day in mid July for some snow clearing to finish up.

It actually erupted twice while I was in the vicinity - about an hour.

We went in early June. It snowed. They closed the south and east entrances. We stayed 2 nights at Boysen state park on the wind river waiting for the roads to clear. The highway was on one side of the river and the train on the other. Not much traffic on either. A very nice place. We were able to negotiate Togwotee pass without issue. Colter Bay camp ground was open but half the sites were closed due to snow. In June. Be aware, like most national parks, not dog friendly. Raz

Really.....so is it also not true that one of the big bull buffalo's in the park was overheard saying "Bye Son" to one of his off spring as he was leaving the park due to the volcanic action???

Yellowstone Mystery Solved

Yellowstone officials and government geologists
assured guests and the public that no such threat exists.

Bison ‘running for lives’ sense doomsday?

“It was a spring-like day, and they were frisky.
Contrary to online reports, it’s a natural occurrence
and not the end of the world,” park spokeswoman
Amy Bartlett said.

[Farm boys would know this........LOL]

The man who claims to have shot the original video
and posted it to his Facebook page says it actually
shows bison galloping down a paved road that leads
deeper into the park.

“Those bison were running for the sake of running,”
said Leckie, in an interview Thursday. “There was nothing
chasing them. There was no mudslide. They were just running.”

There was a great deal of anecdotal support for the superior disaster sensors of animals after the 2004 tsunami in the Indian Ocean. Part of the supporting argument was the relatively few animal remains found later. Presumably didn't find all the human dead either but the 150,000 dead or missing is pretty good support for the idea that humans don't have a nose for geological and climatic cataclysm.

They do that every year about this time.....rumor has it they're leaving before all the tourists arrive.

NOW that makes sense and credits the bison's intelligence.

And:

Q: Why did they name the Bison "Tennial"

A: Because he was born in 1976 and wanted to be known as Bison Tennial
