Feild Report.
West Yellowstone through North Entrance and down to just south of Old Faithful is open. The Madison river Canyon is about %90 clear of snow. Once you head past Norris towards Mammoth you will get to some parts with about 50% clear of snow. All the roads are fine and clear of snow.

While we were dealing with mild flurries that turned to water on contact with any surface, no stick. The upper park and North Entrance were severely different. 3 miles into the park from the North Entrance and it was 55° very sunny and warm with some white clouds floating by.

All in all, if your area is open; you are good to go![Image: f97ad7dec6257887f1db94caceeac016.jpg][Image: c41200100dd6b78dc15c2f4a3a3aa375.jpg][Image: 8e41a172168f17edb828f4047a141880.jpg][Image: dd422760eeb09816712ead88395e5abf.jpg]

I should of stopped in Casper to talk to you, I was thinking it would of took too much time, I went down Chief Joseph Hwy until I came to snowmobiles and snow drifts, and back tracked took about 3 hours more. I will be back to Yellowstone in 3 weeks Smile

RE: Feild Report.
I have read TFTW but not recently. For the last couple of days the TV news has been telling us to stay away from Chief Joseph Hwy because it falling down the hill...too much moisture. Where are you going to be om the 5th? PM me if you'd like my # so you can text me.

For the others, we will be having a lot of flooding in various parts of the state, be sure to check your area before you travel. Any questions, PM me.

Not Really. It is not required, others in my group have.

In TFTW Fenn said he has been to the yellowstone area several times since 1962. The context of the 1950 comment seems to be the last time he spent an entire summer there. The book is not worth much in the value of finding the chest. I'll post when I get there in my Montana thread I'll be in the Bozeman area mostly. I'm planning on being in the area for the summer
