brigade, in an attempt to limit smoke damage, removed the smoldering 
contents of the room from the building while salvage crews also 
atteapted to limit water damage on the lower floors by removing water 
end covering furniture. From ail indications, the fire was started by 
a smoker who inadvertantly dropped an ash onto the bed while in the 
process of making it. Occupants at the time were girl scouts.

ware received and answered, some with a form letter. A 
fact timet on the elk problem was included with all replies. 
Ia some cases additional information was sent. Only three

Most were critical of Park Bangers shooting elk in the Park; 
Many suggested artificial feeding, and most thought more effort 
should be put into livetrapping.

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming 83020 
April 1967 
CHIEF PARK RANGER'S MONTHLY NARRATIVE REPORT 



GENERAL 

Weather Conditions; April has been unusually cold with persistent 
rain showers and snow flurries. Because of this colder weather, 
snow melt has been relatively slow resulting in a gradual runoff. 
Following is a summary of winter snow conditions throughout the Park: 



Lewis Divide 
East Entrance 



Greatest snow accumulation - 116 inches 

Least snow accumulation - 15 inches 

Average snow accumulation - 50 Inches 

Average water content -19.1 inches 

This is 186 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 April totaled 7,182. Automobiles entering the Perk reached 
1,995. This is a 28 percent decrease as compared to April 1966. 

There was an approximate 3.5 percent increase in travel through the 
North Entrance. 

The West Entrance opened to wheeled vehicle travel on April 22 with 
access to Old Faithful and Mammoth. The Canyon cutoff road giving 
access to the rest of the Park opened on the 29th. There was an 
estimated total travel of 255 vehicles through this entrance as of 
Apri I 26. 

As snowplow operators continued throughout the month to remove snow 
in the South District, no travel other than official travel occurred.

Special Activities ; The annual spring Ranger Conference was held 
Apri I 17 through 21. 

Preliminary reports on the Yellowstone Lake studies and the stream 
and lake survey were reviewed in preparation for a meeting to discuss 
the reports with Bureau of Sport Fisheries personnel. The meeting 
was held at Mammoth on April 5 and was preceded by a meeting of Park 
Service personnel on April 4. Minutes of the meeting have been reported 
separately. 

Biologist Barmore attended the annual meeting of the Northwest Section 
of the Wildlife Society in Moscow, Idaho, on April 7 and 8. A paper 
entitled Forage Utilization Patterns on the Upper Gallatin Elk winter 
Range, 1957-1966 , was presented in conjunction with Mr. James Peek, 
Research Biologist, Montana Fish and Game Department. At the same 
meeting Biologist Barmore presented an invited paper entitled The 
1966-67 ^Management Program for the Northern Ye I jows t one Elk Herd on a 
panel concerned with controversial wildlife management problems. About 
150 professional biologists were in attendance. Mr. Dave May and Mr. 
Rodney Royce, Biologists from Mount Rainier and Olympic National Parks, 
also attended the meeting. 

On April 15, Biologist Barmore presented an illustrated talk entitled 
Educational Aspects of Inquiry into Aspen-Elk Relationships in 
Yellowstone Nationa l Park to the Annual Montana State Biological 
Teachers Conference, Bozeman, Montana. Approximately 40 teachers 
were present. The talk was followed by a one-half hour question 
and answer period in which last winter's elk management program and 
census were discussed. 

On April 25, Bill Barmore discussed the Northern Yellowstone elk 
problem on the "Today in Montana" television program on KRTV, Great 
Falls, Montana. Slides were used to illustrate the 15-minute interview 
with Mrs. Eleanor Logan. That evening he gave a one hour illustrated 
talk on the history of the Park's elk problem, elk-aspen relationships, 
and the 1966-67 elk management program to the Nature and Wildlife 
Society of Great Falls. The talk was followed by about 45 minutes 
of questions. About 54 were in attendance. Practically all understood 
the elk problem. No one expressed sharp disagreement, though a couple 
wondered why public hunting inside the Park wouldn't help solve the 
problem. 

Chief Park Ranger Estey attended the Superintendent's staff meeting 
on April 6 and Bill Barmore attended on the 21st. 

ADMINISTRATION 

Personnel : Park Ranger Lynn Thompson has accepted a position in 
the Concessions Management Division of the National Park Service 
in Washington, D. C. He will enter on duty June 18.

William J. Barmore was promoted to Park Ranger (wildlife Management) 
effective April 23. 

Sub-District Ranger Scott was re-deslgnated Acting North District 
Ranger and North District Ranger Morey was designated Acting Assistant 
Chief Park Ranger until the new Assistant Chief Ranger arrives May 7. 

South District Rangers moved to their respective duty stations during 
the week of April 23-29. The South District office was opened on 
April 24 by Mrs. Evelyn Wolfe. 

West District Rangers also moved to their respective duty stations 
during the week of April 23-29. 

Ranger Pete Thompson transferred from Lamar to his summer duty station 
at Canyon on April 29. 

Three seasonal Rangers entered on Duty in April. 

Safety and Health ; One motor vehicle accident occurred in April. 
A total of 13 motor vehicle accidents have been recorded for the 
year compared to 15 for the same period last year. 

Work was completed on revisions to the Blister Rust Control Safety 
Handbook. It is now set up to include both BRC and fire control 
personnel. 

CONSERVATION, INTERPRETATION & USE 

Research and Observations ; Both grizzly and black bears have been 
seen frequently during the month. One very small orphaned black bear 
cub, apparently a yearling, has been seen In the vicinity of the 
Firehole Canyon begging along the road. It is doubtful the cub can 
survive in its obviously weak condition. 

Winterkilled animals found in the Tower Sub-District to date include 
eight mature bull elk, on© deer, and one bighorn sheep. 

Range Studies ; Biologist Barmore spent some time compiling data and 
writing a paper on forage utilization patterns on the Upper Gallatin 
winter range. One day was spent in Bozeman, Montana, analyzing range 
condition and trend data for the Gallatin winter range with Jim Peek, 
Montana Fish end Game Department, and Louis Bartos, U. S. Forest Service. 
The data will probably be used in a technical paper on the Upper Gallatin 
winter range. 

Resource Studies ; The status of several resource studies was reviewed 
(the Black Bear Study, Yell-N-13; Elk Physiology Study, Yell-N-2; Elk 
Migration Study, Yell-N-4). The Black Bear Study is on schedule, but 



i

additional funds have been requested. The final report on the first 
five years of the Elk Physiological Studies will not be submitted on 
schedule. Progress reports on the Elk Migration Study are about one 
year late; however, it is hoped to have the final report on schedule. 

Protection; Rangers Williamson, Gu Ninette, and Boyd made a ski petrol 
to Shoshone Lake on March 31 and April I. 

A ski patrol was made from Mammoth to Sportsman Lake and down Specimen 
Creek on April 9 through II. 

Five trips were made by Ranger Ives during the month front Moran to 
South Entrance via oversnow equipment, prior to opening of the road. 

Numerous other trips were made by Ranger personnel, transferring 
government and personal gear to the respective duty stations. Snow 
shoveling duties have also been accomp I i shed— clearing ranger stations 
and quarters prior to the visitor season. 

On April 3, private efforts to clear U. S. Highway 212 from Cooke 
City to Cooke Pass resulted in considerable damage to this Park 
maintained road. 

On April 12, a break in was reported at the Lower Hamilton Store at 
Old Faithful. Investigation showed the only apparent theft was from 
the liquor storage room. The amount of liquor taken is as yet unknown. 
Entry was made by breaking a window, probably In November after the 
store closed. The wooden shutter was replaced so that the break in was 
not discovered until pre-opening maintenance began. 

Two motorcycle operators were cited on April 30 for being off a 
designated roadway. They posted a $10 bond each. 

Forest Fire Protection : Final arrangements were made with the Gallatin 
National Forest and the U. S. Forest Service, Northern Region, on the 
telephone system for the West Yellowstone Interagency Fire Control 
Center. 

Mr. F. W. Kriger, Handee Foods Inc., Missoula, Montana, was in the 
Park on April 4 and 21 with samples of frozen foods. These food items 
should greatly improve the Park's firefighter meals and especially 
be excellent for fire camp use on large fires. 

On April 24 and 25, Rangers White, Brown, Hancock, Scott, and Boyd 
attended a U. S. Forest Service sponsored Fire Simulator Training 
Session at Worland, Wyoming. This proved to be an outstanding 
training opportunity. Simulation for local training is being explored 
for future use.

The annual Indian Liaison Officer Training and Planning Meeting was 
attended by Rangers Scott, Boyd, and White in Billings, Montana, on 
April 27. 

Qui Idino, Fire Protection: Due to the Ranger Conference, only one 
fire brigade training meeting was held in April. Movies were shown 
followed by hose-lay practice. 

On April 18, Mr. Ed Smith from Lorenzo Smith & Son, Salt Lake City, 
Utah,— American LaFrance representatives— vis J ted the Park to advise 
on fire truck acquisitions. 

Specifications have been prepared for a new 1,000 gallon pumper 
scheduled to replace the old fire truck now stationed at Old Faithful. 

On April 22, the Mammoth fire brigade responded to a fire reported 
In room 277 of the Mammoth Motor Inn. The fire had been extinguished 
by the sprinkler system in the hotel when the brigade arrived. The 
brigade, in an attempt to limit smoke damage, removed the smoldering 
contents of the room from the building while salvage crews also 
attempted to limit water damage on the lower floors by removing water 
and covering furniture. Fran all indications the fire was started 
by a smoker who inadvertently dropped an ash onto the bed while in 
the process of making it. Occupants at the time were girl scouts. 

Insects and Tre e Disease s: Control status maps and tables were 

completed for the 1966 Blister Rust Control program. Working maps 

and instructions for the 1967 season are in the process of preparation. 

Final plans were made for the Dalmation Toadflax control program to 
be initiated in the Mammoth area during the first part of May. 24 bl 
spraying will be the primary control method. One or two areas will 
be set aside experimentally to determine what effects mowing or 
clipping might have on Toadflax. 

All supplies and equipment required for the summer Blister Rust 
Control program have been received. All workers will be supplied 
with uniform hard hats with a green stripe on the side and name on 
the front. Foremen will be (for the most pert) dressed uniformly 
to include green work clothes, hard hats with green and orange stripes, 
and name tags. Those assigned to fire duty will be supplied with 
orange fire resistant shirts. 

Wildlife & Fish Cultural Activities : On April 3, Ranger Ben Lado 
counted 619 mule deer between Mammoth and Corwin Springs from the 
Mammoth-Gardiner highway and the county road west of the Yellowstone 
River between Garainer and Corwin Springs. Of these, 269 were inside 
the Park and 350 were outside.

Wildlife Management Activities : Approximately 95 letters about 
the elk reduction program were received and answered, some with a 
form letter. A fact sheet on the elk problem was included with 
all replies. In some cases additional information was sent. Only 
three or four of the letters supported our management program. Most 
were critical of Park Rangers shooting elk in the Park, many suggested 
artificial feeding, and most thought more effort should be put into 
I i vetrapping. 

Maintenance ; Fire cache personnel have been extremely busy preparing 
for summer activities; i.e. equipping fire trucks, hose repairs, 
chute repairs, painting, and other odd jobs. 

The revamping of the road system at the North Entrance is approximately 
65 percent complete. This new spur road will nearly eliminate the 
traffic problems here. 

Concessi oners ; The Yellowstone Park Company has been involved in 
several construction projects in the Old Faithful area. Many of 
the campers cabins are being up-graded. The Inn kitchen is being 
completely remodeled. The Inn coffee shop Is being remodeled into 
a buffet faci I ity. 

RESOURCE PLANNING 

Cooperation With Other Federal, State, or Local Agencies : Contract 
drillers for the U. S. Geological Survey under the field supervision 
of Dr. Don White have started a bore hole in the Black Sand Geyser 
Basin. The drill reached approximately 210 feet when an eruption 
occurred causing a temporary delay. The hole was cased and cemented 
and drilling is again in progress.

Subject: Monthly Narrative Report for April 1967 

Max. 45° 10th 
Ceneral 



Min.Temp. 7° 15th 



v.ea titer Conditions : Winds were generally light during the month with 
snow showers occurring on fifteen days. Heavy snows of 9, 3 1 and 4 
inches on the 5tn,26th and 28th respectively, added to the slowly 
diminishing snowpack. Snow depths at the Siege Area still averages 
18 inches with some drifts to 30 inches. Skies were overcast on 15 
days wit;-, strong winds only occurring on 4 days. 

Decrease in Travel : Last year the Battlefiid was open to visitors on 
April 20. We will be fortunate to have the area open this year by the 
middle of May. It is expected to have the snow reduced sufficiently 
for plowing by May 5, but it will be several days after the plowing 
before the road will be firm enough for vehicular travel. The new road 
fill is exceedingly soft. Entrance will be made over the old road bed 
as the new road near the top of the grade has a snowdrift over ten feet 
deep and over one hundred feet long. It will require a great deal of 
warm weather to make this portion of road passable even after the snow 
departs. 

Administration 

Personnel : Maintenanceraan Lowell J. Williams EOD April 10. Mr. Williams 
worked in the Madison Junction area of Yellowstone National Park last 
season. 

Cooperative Activities 

Cooperation with Other State Agencies : The trailer access road to the 
highway was plowed out twice daring the month. The road to the pump 
house was cleared of winter snow on April 9, by the State plow. 

The State 4-wheel drive Oskkosh plow has been at Butte for repairs

bit Mr. Del Conover, the new State maintenance supervisor in Wisdom, 
expects it back the first or second week in May and an attempt to open 
the road to the Siege Area will be made. 

Interpretive Activities 

Interpretive Facilities : Using the "Snoblast", trails were opened to 
the Siege Area and the Siege Area trails. 

Protective covers were removed from the Siege Area trail markers and 
exhibits. 

MusiHiiB catalog cards were completed for accession items #283 to #§13 
and filed in the proper places. This brings all accession records up 
to date started by Aubrey Haines going back to accessions dated 1959. 

Research and Observations : Ground squirrels were noted sitting by 
holes in the snow April 6. This same day five skunks were seen traveling 

over the snow about a mile east of the Battlefield within a half mile 
area. 

Operations 

Maintenance : Spring painting included; the office interior at the 
Siege Area; the pump house interior, pipes and pressure tank; and the 
interior and exterior porches and skirting of the Management Assistant's 
trailer. 

Breaks in the copper and galvanized piping in the SSC trailer were 
repaired. Other minor repairs included cleaning and lacquer spraying 
the interior woodwork, repairing screens and adjusting and cleaning 
the oil and hot water beaters for proper operation. 

The new "Snoblast" trail snowplow was found to have the fuel lines 
stopped up with a gummy substance like varnish. We find this machine 
excellent for its intended purpose. For snow deeper than 18 inches, 
it becomes impossible to continue without breaking down or removing 
the snow above this depth. Depths of 18 inches are difficult to remove 
up a grade utiles s the machine is able to cut through to a solid floor. 
As was expected, rocks proved hazardous to the machine and several 
pins on the rotor were sheared. These are easily replaced. On three 
occasions the rocks did not produce the required jolt to break the 
pin and twisted the rotors which required extensive hammering to restore 
them to their original shape. We realize we are subjecting t!ic machine 
to extra hard usage but it is doing an excellent job that could be done 
no other way in or>enin» our trails this early. 

Using the "Snoblast H , trails were opened from the blacktop to the pump 
house; from the blacktop west over the new road, about 300 yards, to 
an impassable snow drift; from the highway in, to the Siege Area; the 
Siege Area trails; and to all Sie?e Area building entrances.

Some old pole fence was piled and burned in an area which is under 
water most of the year .just north of the new road construction. Working 
in this area would be difficult later in the season. 

Work was started on r pairs to the Sie£e Area trailer ceilin.?, damaged 
by roof leaks two years ago. A new neof was laid over the old one 
by Yellowstone carpenters last year.
