April Attendance Way Up At Yellowstone National Park

      April attendance at Yellowstone National Park jumped by 40% or about 19,000 visitors from last year, when it was dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.  

       Yellowstone Superintendent Cam Sholly says the April total of more than 67,000 was a record for the month, topping the old mark set in 2016.

      Sholly had predicted the park would be busier early this year based on the inability of tourists to travel internationally as demand for outdoor recreation increased last year.      

      Grand Teton National Park visitation also jumped last month with more than 87,700 visitors, a 48% increase from last April.
