Yellowstone partially reopens for visitors
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. – A portion of Yellowstone National Park will reopen after floods closed the park for the week.
According to park officials, day visitors can access the south loop of the park starting at 8 a.m. June 22.
However, the park is issuing an alternating license plate system for visitors to balance visitor demand.
The park will allow cars into the park based on their license plate and the day.
If a visitor’s license plate has an odd number as their last number, they can enter on odd days of the month.
The same applies to even-numbered plates and even days of the month.
Personalized plates with all letters fall in the odd category
Plates with a mixture of letters and numbers are categorized by their last number. For example, “YELL4EVR” is in the even category.
