Yellowstone Park hit with 4.1-magnitude earthquake.

By Brett French of the Billings Gazette.

I notice that this quake was a little bit unique in that it is east of the location of the big majority of YNP earthquakes. RM

    Bring on the latedt round of hysteria… I wonder if all the Yellowstone blows up movies a year or two back had an effect on the park’s revenue?
    I wnder if gas being so pricey will?
    Well, I am just thankful no one got hurt.

    Vicki,,,,,Reservations are above average in and around the park according to an article I recently read. Those that can afford 500,000 dollar motorhomes, and 200-300 a night lodgings don’t let $4.00 a gallon gas get in their way.

‎"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."
