Records Keep Falling at Yellowstone N.P.
Tourists taking advantage of mild fall weather are adding to the already record number of people who have visited Yellowstone National Park this year.
The park had a record number of visitors in October. That’s on top of the record number of visitors to Yellowstone in June, July, August and September, the Associated Press reported.
Tourism in Yellowstone so far this year is up more than 10% compared to this time last year. More than 3.5 million people have visited the park this year, already topping the record 3.3 million who visited Yellowstone all last year.
More than 189,000 people visited the park in October. That broke a 22-year-old record. Park officials say unusually mild weather and less road construction compared to autumns past may be encouraging people to visit Yellowstone.
