Temporary snowmobile plan has a low limit on snowmobiles-

Plan issued for snowmobiles in Yellowstone. Temporary measure sets limits lower than plan rejected by judge. The Associated Press. LA Times.

Plan: 318 snowmobiles. Jackson Hole News and Guide. By Cory Hatch.

This came out very close to the opening of the season. The Park closed to wheeled vehicles this morning (Nov. 3).

Update (Nov.5):Plan for snowmobiles satisfies green groups. But temporary solution will mean less business. Bt Cory Hatch. Jackson Hole News and Guide.

  1. It also came out just before election day – so few will notice it except news junkies like us. This is not the first time that NPS has come out with news that would be unpopular on a media dump day.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
