As you plan your Yellowstone vacation, you may want instant "tactical information" of any changes in fire activity, to help you decide on routes or places to visit. Right now fires have almost no influence on visitors, other than providing opportunity at the Mud Volcano area to photograph smoke from a real Yellowstone wildfire. The air is clear and weather is beautiful for the Labor Day weekend.
If you would like updates sent to your cell phone of changes in fire activity and other Yellowstone news as they are broadcast, text follow yellowstonenps to the phone number 40404 using your cell phone, and you will begin receiving Twitter updates on your phone. They will focus on changes in the fires that might affect visitors' plans. We are sending perhaps five or ten of these tweets a day, depending on fire activity. When you wish to stop receiving those updates, use your cell phone to text stop yellowstonenps to 40404.
