    Yes, south. We’re in Teton for the week. I called the roads phone number and heard all but the north road was closed. Was still a great morning for a drive!

    Loving the info and the pictures in this thread as I work my way through it! This summer my wife and I are going to be driving from NY to AK and planning on spending a few days in Yellowstone on our way. Only issue is we are brining our dog with us on the trip. Can anybody recommend a kennel or a person who watches dogs? We will be coming from Mt. Rushmore, arriving in either Cody or Dubois on July 3, 2019. We can either take I-90 west into Cody or go down to I-25 west into Dubois depending on options and suggestions.

    I've been avoiding the park which is sad because I usually try to go there for New Years Day....
    Since Yelly is currently in its winter season most of the park is closed/inaccessible anyways so I'm hoping that that is keeping the craziness to a minimum. They are still letting the snowmobile and snowcoach groups into the park but none of the facilities are open. This time of year only a few pit toilets are open and they are not being cleaned/stocked unless its by the concessioneers that operate the snowcoachs. The north road between Gardiner and Cooke City is also open to vehicles as it is the only accessible road in/out of Cooke this time of year. There's only a couple of pit toilets along that entire route and I can't imagine the condition they are in unless the NPS locked the doors... And that route gets a lot of traffic this time of year with folks heading to Cooke to snowmobile in the mountains north of the park. IF the shutdown was happening during peak summer season it would be a different story but I think (hope) that Yelly will be relatively safe. At least it will be better off than some of the other parks. I've heard that some parks are having huge issues with filthy toilets and trash everywhere and people just doing stupid crap like going off trail to drive or camp or defacing rocks, etc with graffiti.... so sad. I kinda wish they'd just close all parks 100% until there can be full staff to babysit the tourons.

    Sorry to hear, i seem to remember you saying somewhere that NYD was your way to get your year off to a great start.
    I'd heard about the off trail crap, graffiti idiocy and trash. A personal pet peeve of mine are litterers, cannot understand why one would not
    want to leave whatever spot cleaner than you found it, i mean how hard is it to pick up a couple pieces of trash?
    I keep a few small plastic bags in my pack just in case i see litter along a trail.

    Oh well, enough of that...Happy Friday and a Happy Safe New Year to you and yours!

    Tourons...haha...my new favorite word.
