Yellowstone Park (news flash)

Animals fleeing Yellowstone spark fears of volcanic eruption

http://rt.com/usa/epoch-bison-yellowstone-volcano-909/

On March 30, Yellowstone was struck by the most powerful
earthquake it has experienced since 1980 – a 4.8 magnitude
quake that did no damage, but that some believe could be
connected to the various animals’ movements.

“But I’ll tell you this, whatever the case may be, that their
running away from Yellowstone is an alert of some sort.”

What a collection of bogus statement and conclusions.

quote: “Whether I believe this, or whether I don’t believe the story or not, I don’t know. I can tell you this story I saw this morning about the buffaloes running the street … whether or not it’s because of any activity in Yellowstone or not, I don’t know,” said blogger Jay Lee, according to the Times.

I don't see anybody saying which direction they were running. Were they heading for L.A.? Heading for Chile? Maybe to Nebraska to protest the pipeline proposal?
All I can say is "Good Grief"!!!!

Yep... what a bunch of nothing.

Worst quake (and only about a 4.8 "B Ticket" ride at that) in about 35 years, on a scale of over 600,000 years since the last eruption, isn't much.

Bottom line: I think that if someone suffers from earthquake paranoia or rampant conspiracy theories, they should never go to Yellowstone National Park..... Or even outside for that matter.

Or even in North America. Didn't y'all see the movie that predicted this? Supervolcano (TV Movie 2005) - IMDb

We will be at Yellowstone Park the 3rd week of July. We'll let everyone know if the park erupts! I can imagine me standing on the hill looking at the eruption just like Woody Harrelson in the movie "2012".

By the way, we've seen bison running like that at Custer State Park, too. They don't always just walk slowly to the next grazing pasture.

When I was last in Yellowstone, sitting in the middle of a beautiful serene quiet meadow, I thought about the potential of an eruption since Yellowstone Lake is tilting and thought "Hey, this is a perfect place to take my last breath in the middle of one of the most beautiful places God made."

The only thing erupting will be the number of tourists. Can't imagine being there in July. September was perfect.

We did it a couple of years ago in July, It was not nearly as bad a Disney World over the Christmas Break! Seriously, it was not ideal but worked out fine and it was all the time we had while the kid was out of school. I look forward to retirement when I can go and do stuff sometime besides summer vacation.

I also went in July a couple of years ago and it actually was no were near as bad as I expected. But I used the Gros Ventre Campground in Grand Teton as my base camp for most of the time there and actually got in without a reservation. It was a very tranquil camping spot. Did spend 3 days a Fishing Bridge campground in Yellowstone and probable would pass on that experience when I go again. Lots of big rigs and genes running for long hours. The key to going in July is to get up early and go to popular attraction areas before noon. Lots of less traveled spots to hike/explore in the afternoons.

Well. lets see.... Todays temps were: L=20 & H=35 and starting tomorrow snow is expected for 4 days in a row..... Buy the Geyser basin is breath taking in the snow.

But a good compromise time is June, before schools let out.
