The number of monthly visitors to Yellowstone National Park topped 900,000 in July for only the third time in park history, the Associated Press reported.

Park officials say Yellowstone had nearly 907,000 recreational visitors last month. That’s the second largest number of visitors to the park in one month on record.

The record of nearly 958,000 park visitors was set in July 2010.

Some 1.8 million people have visited Yellowstone so far this year. That’s down about 8% compared to the first seven months of last year, though last year set a record.

July is typically the peak month for Yellowstone tourism, followed by August, June, September and May.
