I hope in this new world that we are experiencing the worst thing can be the things we know and the things that we don't. Let me begin by giving you an update.
Things that we know for the 2021...
* This 2020 Covid-19, was an unexpected and unprecedented event in our lifetimes. I'm truly grateful for all of the medical staff and the emergency development of the treatments and vaccines. I'm truly hopeful that we do not have to experience this again.
* Yellowstone Park and Grand Teton National Park has some complex issues in opening back to the stat that we knew in 2019 please visit there website for full details as they change regularly. The West Entrance gate Is planned to be open on April 16, 2021, we hope to have all the ice out of our water lines and be ready for overnight stays on May 10th, 2021.
* The Mask orders are still currently in place for Gallatin County, Montana, if it changes you will see the signs come down at the businesses.
* We have always strived to maintain a clean and sanitary facility. We laundry all blankets and linens between guests. Our stylish quilts have been removed temporarily until we can determine a way to sanitize between stays with out damaging them.
* Air travel is limited as defined by the individual airlines, please contact them for the best up to date information.
* Here in West Yellowstone, we do not have a hospital, with the nearest one 50 miles away and they too are limited in available beds and services.
* Food establishments are operating with modified guidelines monitored by the County Health and Human Services. If you don't feel comfortable, then you might consider delaying your travel.
* The Vendors in the Park (Xanterra and Delaware North) have sent letters out saying that they will not be opening all of their operations until they have staffing and the abilities to be safe for you, not all foods, restrooms are available in the big venues. See the Yellowstone website for details
* There are Bears out of hibernation. Wolves are being seen everywhere, even in town and at our home by the neighbor. There is every reason to be safe around them, bears don't care if you wear a mask, keep your distance at least, 100 yards/meters.
