Visitors Turned Away from Yellowstone and Tetons

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Thousands of visitors to Yellowstone and Grand Teton national park are grumbling and making alternate plans after being told to leave or denied entry because of the budget impasse in Washington. The neighboring parks attract visitors from around the world, but both parks were forced to furlough hundreds of employees and close. Zach Gertsch, of Las Vegas, says he has decided to cut his trip to northwest Wyoming short and return home. At the Irma Hotel in Cody, host Steve Franklin says travelers are livid over being forced out of the parks or denied access. Gateway communities are seeing rooms fill with displaced tourists on the one hand and cancellations on the other. They expect to lose money if the impasse goes on much longer.
