Grand Teton Summer Rec. Visits Are Down 2.7 Percent
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Recreation visits to Grand Teton National Park dropped 2.7 percent for this past summer tourist season.
From May 1 to Sept. 30, the park in northwest Wyoming recorded 2.2 million visitors compared with 2.26 million for the same period in 2010.
Year to date, Grand Teton visits are down 2.6 percent.
Park spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide that May recreation visits to Grand Teton dropped 8 percent from last year, largely due to inclement weather.
