Firehole Lake Drive Temporarily Closed
Firehole Lake Drive in Yellowstone National Park has been temporarily closed due to a damaged road surface.
Extreme heat from surrounding thermal areas has caused thick oil to bubble to the surface, damaging the blacktop and creating unsafe driving conditions on the popular, scenic road, located off the Grand Loop Road halfway between Old Faithful and Madison Junction in the park’s Lower Geyser Basin.
The 3.3-mile loop drive takes visitors past Great Fountain Geyser, White Dome Geyser and Firehole Lake.
The road will remain closed for the next several days while maintenance crews make repairs. The date for reopening the road is uncertain at this time, and will be determined after crews assess the effectiveness of their efforts.
Updated Yellowstone National Park road information is available 24 hours a day by calling 307-344-2117 or visit http://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/roadclosures.htm.

Well you dont' see that every day.

Although I remember begin in NYC in August in the late 70s and some of the streets sort of looked, and felt, like that.

New trends for Yellowstone summer tourists:
Old men in itty bitty shorts
Asian women with large umbrellas...I recommend protective eyewear to avoid being stabbed by the umbrellas (had a couple of close calls )

Almost forgot! Salmon fly hatch is on in Yelly for all of you fisherman types. People were freaking out when the flys were landing on them I'm fine as long as they're not trying to climb up my shorts, down my shirt or on my face...
