January 1967 

CHIEF PARK RANGER'S MONTHLY NARRATIVE REPORT 



GENERAL 

Weather Conditions ; The Park's weather for January can be 
summarized with just one word — snow. Temperatures were generally 
njld, particularly in comparison with previous Januarys; however, 
winds, particularly in the Mammoth area, were higher than normal. 
A Chinook developed during the latter part of the month, resulting 
In considerable thawing and snow melt. Following is a summary of 
winter snow conditions throughout the Park; 

Greatest snow accumulation - Lewis Divide (86") 
Least snow accumulation - East Entrance (30.5") 
Average snow accumulation - 48.7" 
Average water content - 12.4" 

This is 112 percent of our 15-year average. 

Various high and low temperatures recorded around the Park were:

Increase or Decrease in Travel ; Visitors entering Yellowstone 
National Park during January totaled 3,280. Automobiles entering 



the Park reached 911. 
to January 1966. 



This Is a 44.4 percent Increase as compared 



The North Entrance recorded a 19.5 percent increase in travel. This 
increase Is probably due to the availability of winter lodging in 
Mammoth and also increased use of oversnow vehicles in the Park. A 
total of 57 oversnow vehicles registered at Mammoth and the North 
Entrance,

to West Yellowstone, then by regular vehicle to the hospital at 
Ashton, Idaho. His condition is now reported as Improved , A new 
winterkeeper went to Old Faithful on January 20. 

CONSERVATION, INTERPRETATION & USE 

Research and Observations; Wildlife observations have been made 
throughout the month in connection with the elk reduction program 
over the northern range. These have been recorded and tabulated 
subsequent to elk numbers and distribution. 

A fairly comprehensive fixed-wing coverage of the northern range was 
made on the 12th and 18th to record the distribution pattern of elk 
and other animals. A comprehensive detailed report was submitted 
separately which generally indicated that elk trapping activities 
and migration had left relatively few elk In the Slough Creek and 
Crystal Creek trap vicinity. At this time a few elk remained in the 
Lamar and Soda Butte drainage, with the bulk of the numbers along 
the Yellowstone River below Hellroaring Creek and in the area from 
Mammoth to Stephens Creek. 

On the fixed-wing flight on the 12th, 65 bison were observed scattered 
in small groups froffi Garnet Hill to the Soda Butte area. 

Also seen on the northern range incidental to elk observations were 
57 bighorn sheep and II moose. 

On January 19, two red foxes were observed in Pelican Valley. Other 
observations included a bald eagle seen near Bacon Rind Creek in the 
Gallatin and a pine marten seen near the quarters area in West 
Ye I lowstone, 

protection ; Two law enforcement incidents that occurred during January 
were reported and investigated. Two court hearings were scheduled and 
heard before the United States Commissioner, 

Seventeen record checks were mad© for other federal, state, and private 
agencies. 

Foot, ski, and oversnow vehicle patrols have been made around the 
upper geyser area and along the road to Madison Junction in the West 
District, Patrols are being held to a minimum so visitors can be met 
at Old Faithful, so buildings can be shoveled, and so scientists can 
be assisted in moving their heavy equipment around. 

Routine early and late road patrols were maintained throughout the 
month In the North District. Considerable time was devoted to the

north boundary due to elk hunting pressure. Ski trips were made 
into Crevice Creek on the 14th and 15th, and the 28th through the 
31st. A total of 27 hunters were contacted. Weekend hunting petrols 
were also made along the Yellowstone River trail to Decker Flat. No 
violations have been noted. 

A special late elk hunt started at 7:22 a.m. on January 4 In the 
Gallatin area adjacent to the Park boundary. Early and late patrols 
have been made in the Gallatin. 

Twenty-one permits have been Issued to hunters to drag legally killed 
elk from the Saw Mill Creek drainage, across the Gallatin River in 
the Park, to U. S. Highway 191, where they were loaded into the hunters' 
vehicles. 

Considerable time and effort of the West Yellowstone Rangers' time 
has been expended In assisting wreckers with traffic control along 
the Gallatin road while pulling small and large vehicles back onto 
the roadway after driving off due to snow conditions. 

On January 21, a snow slide blocked U. S. Highway 191 In the Gallatin 
area just north of Grayling Creek. Plows were able to open the road 
to oneway traffic on January 22 until a rotary plow was able to clear 
the si ide area. 

Three hundred dollars was stolen from the cash drawer in the Mammoth 
Ktotor Inn on January 9. The only suspect was the hotel guest. fv|o 
arrest was made. 

The snowplane was delivered from Mammoth to Snake River on January 10. 
Three snowplane trips were made to South Entrance. 

Forest Fire Protection ; During the afternoon of January 20, a training 
session was held for available personnel on sp&cialized fireflghting 
equipment (pumps, chain saws, flail trencher, generators, took sharpener, 
and Air-pacs). practical use demonstrations were completed with training 
films and lecture material. 

Contacts were made with U. S. Forest Service Air Operations Chief VIsche 
regarding a p re-conference on the West Yellowstone Air Operations Center 
before the general meeting In Billings on February 28. As yet, no 
particular date has been confirmed for such a meeting. 

Building Fire Protection ; Fire brigade training was held on January 10 
and 17. Use of Air-Pacs and rescue were the principal points stressed. 

On the morning of January I, Mammoth brigade members responded to a 
call for assistance on a grocery store fire in Gardiner, Montana. Upon

arrival, however, the Gardiner Volunteer Fire Department had everything 
under control . 

A Yellowstone Park Company cabin burned to the ground at about midnight 
on January 19. Brigade turnout was excellent, with little lost tirae. 
However, the building was too far gone to do riiuch other than protect 
surrounding structures. |t was determined that the source of ignition 
was a short in the "BX" cable entering the building. There were no 
personal injuries since these cabins were closed for the winter. The 
Yellowstone Park Company estimates the loss at $e,OCO. 

Insects and Tree Diseases ; Forester White and Forestry Technician 
Reeves attended a Regional Blister Rust Control meeting in Omaha, 
Nebraska, on January 23 to 26. Also In attendance were National Park 
Service Foresters F. F. Dickison, L. Y. Berg; G. Bunny of Glacier; 
and U. S. Forest Service officials from the Northern Region. The 
latest results of the Forest Service evaluation surveys regarding the 
BRC control program were submitted by Messrs. Ketchum, Chief, Branch 
of Forest Insect and Disease Prevention; and Graham, Section Head, 
White Pine Blister Rust Control. A separate report of the meeting 
has been submitted. 

A history of the White Pine Blister Rust disease spread into Yellowstone 
is being prepared in summary form. This Information is compiled from 
old scouting records and annua! reports. 

Copies of new area maps of the White Pine-ribes distribution surveys 
conducted In 1963 were made for the National Park Service Regional 
Office, These maps complete the file on all distribution surveys 
performed in the Park frodi 1955 to 1963. 

A composite of the chemical program was prepared showing the areas 
and the amount of 245-T used in the BRC program in 1965-66 seasons. 

Tentative camp assignments were set up and crew housing needs for 
1967 are being requested. 

Wildlife and Fish Cultural Activities ; The annual midwinter waterfowl 
and eagle survey was conducted January 3 through 8,

Trapping results were more difficult to attain as the month progressed 
and elk numbers In the trap vicinities decreased. In one operation 
about 280 elk were moved from the Soda Butte area to Amethyst Creek 
where they were left tor the night. The following day about 100 of 
these were driven to the Crystal trap. Four days later another 106 
of this group were driven to the Crystal trap. On the 16th the balance 
of this group was put with another group from the Soda Butte-Round Prairie 
area and moved near the Lamar Canyon. Another attempted operation 
simitar to this was tried on the 12th when about 125 elk were driven 
off Hellroaring Slopes toward the Slough Creek trap, and left about 
half way, to be driven the following day to the trap. Two successive 
days of storm followed this drive with the result the elk moved out 
of the area and were never successfully trapped. Deep, hard snow 
conditions during this period made driving elk difficult. Another 
multiple day drive was accomplished by moving about 50 elk from Round 
Prairie down the plowed road beyond Soda Butte where they were left 
for the night. The following day this group was driven along the 
road and another 60 animals picked up, and the elk were driven to the 
vicinity of the Lamar Canyon. Four days of rough weather followed, 
precluding any driving action. The fifth day, January 23, this group 
was reassembled, along with some other elk In the area, and driven 
along the Park road through the Lamar Canyon and into the Crystal trap. 
These efforts exhausted any drivable numbers of elk in the vicinity of 
the upper traps. 

On the 24th, a group of 300 to 400 elk was gathered on the lower end 
of Hellroaring Slopes and driven down the Yellowstone River to the 
vicinity of Cottonwood Creek. On the 25th, an attempt was made to 
follow up this effort and try to drive the animals further down the 
river. One helicopter developed engine trouble so the effort was 
abanooned. Observations indicated, however, that most of the elk 
had continued down the river as far as Crevice Creek.

On January 25, the Montana Fish and Game Commission took action 
to modify the hunting season in Area 313 north of the Park. Their 
action closed the season Monday through Thursday effective January 29. 
This action offered the opportunity to attempt to drift elk across 
the Yellowstone River hoping they would stay out of the Park and be 
available for hunter harvest on the Friday through Sunday open period. 
On January 31, about 185 elk were hazed across the river just down- 
stream from the mouth of Bear Creek. 

By the end of the month, the trapping crew was preparing the Gardiner 
and Stephens Creek traps for trapping operations. 

A summary of the northern herd reduction program is as follows:

The Gallatin herd has been subject to hunter harvest this month. 
By the end of the month, 309 animals had been taken by hunters during 
the special season. Added to the 126 taken during the regular season, 
the Gallatin herd reduction totaled 435 at the end of January. The 
desired take of 550 may be completed by live trapping after the 
special hunting season closes February 8. 

Maintenance ; The Lamar weasel was given a new coat of paint and a 
new roof and is once again in operating condition. 

The North District brigade's turnout room Is now complete except for 
painting and installation of a lock. 

Fire Control Technician Tracy worked on fabrication of a new type of 
storage cart for 25-man firefighting outfits. These should greatly 
simplify the loading, unloading, and storage of fire control equipment. 

San I tat ion ; hk5ti float ion was given to the Old Faithful winter personnel 
early in the month of tests made on their water system, indicating the 
water to be biologically contaminated. This made It necessary for all 
drinking water to be boiled.

Complaints ; Several complaints were heard because hunters could 
not use the Pork to get to open hunting areas. Some hunters felt 
they should be permitted to use Oaly Creek to get behind the elk 
which were just out of the Park along Crown Butte. Some also felt 
they should be allowed to use the Black Butte Ranch property to get 
to elk In the Saw Mill Creek drainage. Mr. Patton, of the Black 
Butte Ranch, closed his road to hunters. 



RESOURCE PLANNING 



On 



Cooperation With Other Federal, State, or Local Agencies : 
January 18, the Forester and Assistant Fire Chief met with Mr. Harms, 
Mountain States Telephone Company, to discuss fire control telephone 
needs for 1967. The most significant item discussed was the 
possibility of installing a "hot line" between the fire cache and 
the West Yellowstone Air Operations Center.

iM^^ Memorandum^ 

• Superintendent 
' • Administrative Officer 

bject: Monthly Report - January 

No job-connected injuries were reported during the month. However, we 
have received inquiries from the Yellowstone Park Medical Service and 
the Bureau of Employees' Compensation regarding four reported injuries 
occurring in 1966. These reports are being checked with the employees 
involved and their supervisors. 

Foreman IV-Maintenance William E. Hape was presented a Superior Performance 
Award and a check for $300 in recognition of his excellent performance 
during the period March 1965 to September 1966. Presentation of the award 
was made by Superintendent McLaughlin. 

Mrs. Naomi Hint on completed twenty years of Federal Government employment 
as of January 17. Presentation of the Department of the Interior's 
Length-of-Service Emblem was made by Administrative Officer Hanner. 

Mrs. Irene A, Wilt was reinstated to the position of Clerk-Typist GS-3 
effective January 30 and received orientation material for new employees. 
Mrs. Wilt was formerly employed here at Yellowstone under a permanent 
type appointment as Telephone Operator from the latter part of 1936 until 
July 14, 1942. Mrs. Wilt is presently working in the Electronics Shop. 

Final classification action was taken by the Midwest Regional Office for 
the following positions: 

Supervisory Park Naturalist, GS-452-11, West District, a redescrip- 
tion of the position formerly occupied by Stanley Canter. Recruit- 
ment for this position, through the Service-wide Career Development 
and Placement Plan, was initiated and is pending at this time. 

Park Ranger, GS-453-5/7, a redescription of current established 
positions. One position description covers eleven positions. 

Secretary (Stenography), GS-318-5, Maintenance Division. 
Recruitment for this position was initiated through the Regional 
Career Development and Placement Plan. 

Operator General (Heavy Duty). This position was established in 
lieu of Truck Driver (Heavy Duty). Victor Berg, incumbent of the 
former position, has been promoted to the Operator General position.

clean-out campaign (1) to reduce files by 20 percent in addition to the 
10 percent already required under normal circumstances; (2) destroy 
records that have reached the destruction age; (3) transfer records to 
Federal Records Centers; (4) limit use of file cabinets to housing of 
records only--multiple copies of publications, reference materials, 
office supplies and property should not be housed in file cabinet drawers; 
(5) transfer of and full utilization of file equipment. Special reports 
are required on this program beginning January 10 through September 10, 
1967. 

One hundred fifty-two shipments were checked into the Supply Center 
during January totaling 422 line items with a value of $15,610. Issues 
valued at $16,306 comprising 804 line items were made to 342 customers.

The weight of this shipment was 30,000 pounds. Total shipping weight for 
stores shipments during January was 43,324 pounds. 

Supply Clerks Wolfe and Adkins continued reconciling inventories to card 
records. Many of the inventories were late, and in some cases several 
requests had to be made before some of the late inventories were 
received. 

A large list of excess photographic equipment was reported to General 
Services Administration by report number 101-2-67 on January 17.

new roll of paper was put on the seismograph. 

Eruption schechiles of some of the geysers in the Old Faithful area 
are as follows: 

GRAND: 1/12 - noon; 1/14 - 4:50 p.m.; 1/16 - noon 

ROW©: 1/13 - 11:07 a.m. (30 ft.); 1/14 - 12:10 p.m.; 1/15 - 2:00 p.m. 

On January 23 a new geyser reportedly erupted at a height of one or 
two feet near Round Geyser.
