    The budget ax is falling, and it's hitting national parks hard. Thankfully, you can still visit, but there will be some differences. They're not spending as much time plowing Yellowstone and most of the seasonal entrances will open even later in May. There will be fewer hires at Yellowstone National Park in both the seasonal and permanent staff.

    I am so disgusted by this sequestration business! Yellowstone park crews would have normally began plowing roads two weeks ago but because of this silly budget cuts they won't be plowing until Monday, March 18., can you believe that?

    It's really silly to mess with tourism. It clearly brings in revenue, and people aren't going to come and spend money if they roads aren't plowed. It's really that simple!

    Sequestration is causing a lot of problems across the board when it comes to tourism. The annual AirFest at MacDill AFB was cancelled for April. This event has been going on for so many years and is a top draw for locals and tourists usually attracting more than 100,000 folks to watch the air show. States that rely on tourism as a major portion of revenue are already in enough hot water.. Hoping things get better down the road for everyone. :)
