Popular areas in Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks were
welcoming tourists for the 100th anniversary of the National Park
Service, but a wildfire forced some people to drive a little farther
than they expected to get to the festivities.
The blaze in Grand
Teton National Park shut down a route leading to Yellowstone’s South
Entrance, so visitors coming from the south through Wyoming will have to
take an hour long detour into Idaho.
The wildfire in Grand Teton has burned about 19 square miles since lightning sparked it last month. (AP)
