Weather closes Yellowstone road early

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. — Yellowstone National Park officials made the call to close Dunraven Pass, from Tower Fall to Canyon Junction, for the season.

The pass was scheduled to close to public vehicles on October 15, but the weather had other ideas. Recent and predicted heavy snowstorms have made the road unsafe.

Staff temporarily closed the road Tuesday evening, Oct. 8, because of accumulating snow, wind, and ice that made for extremely unsafe driving conditions.
