Yellowstone closed due to flooding

From Yahoo Sports:

Yellowstone closes all entrances, citing ‘unprecedented’ flooding.

Yellowstone National Park announced Monday that all entrances are temporarily closed because of hazardous conditions caused by flooding.

In a news release, the park cited “unprecedented amounts of rainfall” for causing flooding of roadways, mudslides and rockslides.

Exclamation Yellowstone National Park Temporary Closure!

The park has been temporarily closed at all gates due to flooding and rock slides. No inbound visitor traffic will be allowed into the park until conditions stabilize and the park can assess damage to roads and bridges and other facilities. This includes visitors with lodging and camping reservations.

That will take some time and effort to repair.

It sure will! And at the rate of our current team in DC running the NPS, I doubt that the repairs will be done before Winter.

Just to put it in perspective... the NPS has given up 95% of the possible launching ramps on Lake Mead. Even the current County, State and Federal Rescue boats and equipment are unable to launch or be removed from the lake.

Wow, hard to believe the damage. We were in Yellowstone last week. Left on Saturday to get ahead of the weather.

Attached picture was taken last week. Sections of this road are now gone. You can see the river at normal level in the background.

Roads in river canyons take a long time to re-engineer and repair. US34 Loveland to Estes Park and RMNP, took years to get back to normal after it was similarly destroyed in 2013.


We were just on that road out of Yellowstone to Gardiner. In the video, you can see the stranded front end loader that was working on the road daily.

Guessing rain and quick melt runoff in Gardiner and Lamar drainages caused the flooding. Snowpacks were above average. Think youre right about road from Gardner to Mammoth will be closed for some time. Slides there every year and washout no suprise if youve traveled it much. Lamar and Slough turn into lakes most years during melt but all this came at once.

What a mess. I feel for those who had a big trip planned there in the next few weeks. Problem in Yellowstone is there’s not a plethora of other roads to bypass the damaged areas. It’ll be interesting to watch this and see how it pans out.

Water going into Red Lodge bypasses Livingston and Gardner. If youve seen snow on Beartooth in June you'll see where the water comes from.
Im heading back there in 5 weeks.

Update...Partial reopening Wednesday

Yellowstone officials announced plans to reopen parts of the historic national park to the public on Wednesday after last week’s devastating floods forced over 10,000 people to evacuate.

Visitors will be allowed to enter the park’s south loop area from 8 a.m. while flood damage is likely to keep the north loop closed for a “substantial length of time,” National Park Service officials said.

Yellowstone is using the ALPS system for entry. Last digit on license, Even or Odd allows you to visit on the corresponding Even or Odd day. Personalized plates w/ letters are considered ODD. This started this morning June 22nd @ 8 am

We entered yesterday under even tag number from South entrance gate at 8 am. We’re able to find parking spot at each place we stopped in Yellowstone. We. Mostly did the out of the way spots and back roads which we like but also did Old Faithfull.
