Not All Is Negativity


I’ve been accused of being too negative about the obsolete Bombardier Fleet running around Yellowstone National Park in the winter. Probably so; and with my own good reasons.

bombardier-air-quality-test.jpgForget for a moment the extensive damage the vehicles do to the visitors ears and the air in the park. Forget for a moment about the enormous amounts of gasoline consumed by these dinosaurs. Forget for a moment that there are no seat belts and that a seat is in the doorway. Forget for a moment that the windows fog up and that you are sitting sideways with other people’s legs on top of yours. Forget for a moment that twisting and craning of your neck is necessary to see. Forget for a moment that the visit is more about riding in the tin drum than it is about the park. Then, the visitor experience can be rewarding.

A testament to the “fun” of cramped and crowded travel can be found at TravelLady Magazine.
