Or it's not going to stop period. If we don't get serious about it, and we don't take on these poachers and punish them. Hey, seriously. Nothing's gonna happen because they they didn't have. They didn't have tags and they took dear. Do you think they're going to worry about not doing this again? Because you took their license away? Nothing serious.

According to the National Park Service about ninety percent of these eruption predictions are accurate within a window of plus or minus ten minutes.

Then were rather brief. This is no longer the case we spoke by email with sin may woo a geologist at the University of Utah who studied the physics of geysers and related structures. She said geysers are rare because they require very unique geologic conditions a persistent heat source abundant water supply from groundwater systems and porous or fractured medium that allows fluid migration and he transfer within usually the heat comes from magma a liquid or semi liquid rock found below. Earth's crust which is called lava once it bursts onto the surface yellowstone is positioned over to magma chambers including a. Nice long one. That's just three ten miles underground. That's five seventeen kilometers. Their maker was a localized swell of abnormally hot material. Beneath the crest classified as a mantle plume. It's the reason why. Yellowstone has the world's largest geyser collection the chambers warm up subterranean reservoirs of liquid groundwater. Although the physics here aren't entirely settled. We do know that some of this water gets super heated. That means it's temperature climbs above and beyond waters normal boiling point since this water's held him. Tight corridors. It's got nowhere else to go at first bearing down on the superheated liquid is a combination of overhanging rock and colder water at cramped quarters to the mix. And you've got a recipe for high pressure but the pressure doesn't last forever in a geyser like old faithful hyperactive. Steam bubbles eventually pushes small percentage of the groundwater through a narrow opening at the surface. Just like that. The pressure decreases and sets off an explosion of hot water and steam. If you're wise you'll give old faithful a wide berth. Visitors can safely watch the geyser erupt from a boardwalk maintained by yellowstone venture off that path. And you might be on the hook for six months in prison and a five thousand dollar fine and besides getting too close to hydrothermal features. Like geysers or hot springs isn't a cool idea. When old faithful goes off the water temperature around its vent can hit two hundred and four degrees? Fahrenheit that's ninety six Celsius meanwhile the steam gets even hotter sometimes exceeding three hundred fifty degrees Fahrenheit or one hundred seventy seven Celsius viewed from an appropriate distance. Old Faithfuls eruptions are thrilling spectacles. Even if you've seen one before you might want to revisit the geyser some day because certain eruptions last longer than others. We'll explained that old. Faithful isn't as predictable as at once seemed there are two different categories of gaps between eruptions and of eruptions themselves an eruption that begins and ends in under two and a half minutes is considered short. Others are longer after a short eruption. There'll be an intermission of sixty to sixty five minutes before the Geyser spouts again yet old faithful will reliably take a break of around ninety two minutes once a long eruption subsides over the past fifty years longer eruptions at old faithful have become the norm short. One still occur but they are rarer than they used to be and no one is entirely sure. Why while the mystery is unresolved some geologists blame recent earthquakes for this changing schedule? The guys are source is another riddle. Scientists haven't determined where old faithful gets. Its water supply. Though in two thousand seventeen study Wu and five colleagues revealed an important clue using seismic waves sensors. They found a natural reservoir below the historic old faithful in which stands south. West of the Geyser who who said that body is interpreted to be a highly fractured and saturated area that we think provides fluids source to old faithful plumbing questions and by modal eruptions aside. Old Faithful is indeed more faithful. Then some of its counterparts. It's time we introduced the steamboat. Eiser another yellowstone resident. That happens to be the world's tallest. Active Geyser emitting jets of water three hundred to four hundred feet into the sky above. That's about ninety to one hundred and twenty meters but who said it is very unpredictable and has gone decades between eruptions the last eruption before March of two thousand eighteen was in September of two thousand fourteen. She added however that the two thousand eighteen blow up quote began an unprecedented active phase steamboat. Geyser has rented a total of eighty five times since then with the last eruption occurring February twenty first twenty twenty. We still don't know what initiates this active as what controls its eruptive behavior and what geometry looks like

"You can check this out to and be great spot to see that type the hot springs you also have artists paint pots over here so if you don't do mud volcano you can do artists paint pots or vice versa. And you'll get a chance to see that type of a feature. Next is the upper loop so the upper loop. I'm GONNA think of more in terms of kind of four corners because there's really four towns that that mark the four corners of this loop and we already talked about Norris which is in the southwest corner and of course that has midway kaiser basin and artists paint pots. What's and then Kenyon village? Which I said was the village where there is a ranger station and stuff? So that's the southeast corner. Also were the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone will be at and then from there. We took that Kenyan village road and headed North Up to Tower Roosevelt. Now this road I hear is going to be closed for part of summer. Twenty twenty twenty. So just be sure you check on the website. I don't know when the closure starts on I don't know if that's been announced and how much of the summer that's going to affect things. But you won't actually be able to take this road north to go up to Tower Roosevelt You can still get to Tower Roosevelt. You're just GONNA have to kind of go the long way on the other side but when we went we were able to head North to Tower Roosevelt and then from Tower Roosevelt. This is where you could get onto the bear tooth highway and head out of town going towards the entrance. That is kind kind of Lower Montana Upper Wyoming on the east side if you were to drive out on that road. The bear tooth highway is if you're going exit park you're going to get to Lamar Valley. And Lamar Value Valley has a lot of features that are similar to hate him valley. You have those big vistas and you'll see different wildlife but it's more known for seen wolves so if it really matters to you to try to spot a wolf while you're on this trip. Then you're GONNA WANNA hit up Lamar Valley because that's probably your best bet if you are headed towards Tower Roosevelt. Some of the other things to see here are tower falls waterfalls and then the petrified tree is up here too so it's pretty easy to kind of. Stop there pullover. It's it's near the road and then it's a petrified tree so if you've never seen that your kids haven't seen that that's a super bowl nothing to stop and check out If you continue kind of on that northern part of the route then it will head to the West and go over to mammoth hot springs springs. Now mammoth hot springs is the biggest town in the park. It's where the park headquarters are at where the Rangers live. And you can tell that this is really the town for the the park. It's open so all your round so the road that goes from mammoth hot springs and over to tower. Roosevelt is actually the only road that's open through the winter in yellowstone the rest of the roads. They they don't clear you can take a snowmobile on them if you're part of one of the snowmobile tours. But you can't drive a car on him because They're covered in snow but up in mammoth hot springs. It's really cool to see. This is where the terraces are the The travertine terraces. So you can see those. They're really big. There's some different places where you can get out and hike around which is really need to see. We also saw a bunch of elk. Here I mean like in the road. You can't can't even drive because there's so many elk all over the place so I guess if you WanNa see elk is probably a good spot to go as well side note. Though this. This is not a hot springs you can bay. Then if you're from these coaster not used to hot springs out West. We have a ton of hot springs in a bunch of your mountain towns in places where you just have these natural hot springs. There's places that put in swimming pools and kind of Fuel pump some of that hot spring water are into the pool and then you can soak and sit around and do all sorts of stuff. So there's a lot of hot springs out west and that's one of the things I love about this area area but yellowstone. The mammoth hot springs are not hot springs for us to go in. There actually is one place where you are allowed to get into some hot springs natural literal hot springs and dip into it and I just learned about that recently. I didn't even know about that in the current trip. But I'll tell you about that right right now so apparently in boiling river. which is Kinda halfway between Gardner and mammoth? There's an area that you can stop and then you can go to a a hot springs kind of area so there's kind of some different pools and stuff so you need to you. Know Bring your swimsuit flip flops and all that kind of stuff And it's not not exactly like people don't know about it but if you do WanNa do a soak while you're in yellowstone that's the place where you can do it then as you continue back south heading towards Norris your pass roaring mountain in this is the place where you'll see the funerals so this is the steam. That's just kind of smoking and coming out of the side of the mountain so really cool. Cool to see That's probably one of the last highlights there on the upper loop and when we come back we're going to talk about camping at Yellowstone National Park.

"You're not dealing with Labour Day. They traffic kids are back in school so for most people. They're not going to be able to travel this time of year so there is a lot less crowds but you still have the fall colors and and we still had beautiful weather so it was a great time to visit. I highly recommend visiting in the fall. Because you won't have to deal with so many crowds At least with with the US tourists there was a huge international crowd but a lot less people and it was easy enough to park at the different locations. There was only one time in one place. Yes where we actually had to wait to get a parking spot and everywhere else we were able to just stop and see the sights when we wanted to so highly recommend going in September. Oh and we also only had a few days tetons and we only had a few days at yellowstone. So that's not how I'd like to do it. I'd love to have more time but I'm still glad that we did that. In at at least got to see a base of it and then next time we go back we know what we want to see more of in where we want to spend more of our time so if you only have a few days or if you're driving out to glacier asier from somewhere in the east or the Midwest just stop at yellowstone even if it's just a day or two just so you can see some of it and get a taste for it and decide what you WanNa see more of when when you come back so that's kind of my feeling about it And then the other thing I want to make sure you know is that you will need a vehicle for Yellowstone National Channel Park so unlike some of the other places like Zion or glacier where they have a shuttle system that's available for you to go to the different sites around the park. There's no oh shuttle system at yellowstone. There's I mean. There are some private companies that will do bus tours. So I suppose you could get scheduled onto one of those if if you were coming into town or nearby in your RV and you didn't have a tow vehicle or You weren't with a travel trailer so you had vehicle with you so I guess that is an option. The the other thing is the different cities that are around yellowstone have some car rental options and we actually stayed in West Yellowstone which is in Montana. It's just just outside of the West entrance for the park and I know that there's a car rental place there because my inlaws need to use it and That worked out just fine. I can't remember what they had to pay for the day but if you don't have to- vehicle it'll be a lot cheaper just to rent a vehicle than to get that all set up so For sure rent a car plan on renting car or having your own vehicle because You have to drive to all the sites and you have to park with everybody else. WHO's trying to park there? That's the other reason why going in the offseason offseason. So either you could go kind of before summer starts so kinda before Memorial Day and When the kids are first out of school but things might not be open yet? So we're definitely getting snow through may in in those areas and so having that cleared out and ready to go for cars might not actually have until June but in September. You still probably have some pretty good weather there. There's a chance to have a snowfall but it's probably not going to close all the roads yet. So September number makes for a really good time and when we come back. We're going to talk about things to see on the lower loop. There are lots of amazing stops in Yellowstone National Park. But I think I'm going to focus on some of what I think. Maybe the must stews or some of the hydrothermal features. That you can see and talk about those. So when we came to yellowstone we came up from Grand Teton. So we were there the nights before. So we're heading northwest up into yellowstone. And then we were heading over where we're heading directly north and yellowstone and then we were heading towards the West to get to West Yellowstone. Which is where we were camping for the night and so when we did this we went ahead and stopped at old faithful? If you think about the lower loop as has being a clock face then I would put The entrance on the south end from Teton at six o'clock and then the parking lot in area for old world faithful being at about eight of probably seven or eight o'clock so it's it's not that far from that area and then the West Yellowstone stone entrance is pretty much at nine o'clock so it's on the route to their the nice thing about the stopping here. This night is that it saved us from needed to stop there on the next day which freed us up for other things and the old faithful. Parking lot is actually really large and it can accommodate large. RV's so we were able to pull up there were there was plenty of R. V. Parking and big enough spaces for a real big. RV Ours is thirty seven feet we were able to park. We kept the jeep there to We had our dog with us. So we're able to let her out and have her unleash but let her kinda like walk around and go the bathroom and stuff and the lodge is is there. Obviously the guys are old faithful. Geyser is amazing to see and you get to hang out for a little while and then you can just watch it. Shoot up into the sky super recall. We actually had a cloudy day so it may be didn't look as impressive as it is on a really clear blue sky day but it was still neat to see. There's also a boardwalk that walks around the area so you can see some of the other features in and things on the ground cause a lot of places where these hot springs are at. Obviously you can't be walking near that right. 'cause I mean we're we're talking about temperatures in two hundred degrees so really hot space and you can't walk it but you can see it from the boardwalk there's also use usually usually arranger giving a talk at the old faithful geyser so if you're hanging out there throughout the day I'm sure there will be a ranger speaking about the geyser and giving some information nations There was when we were there and for the rest of the trip we went ahead and parked. RV At the campsite which was outside of the park and then we just drove in our jeep for the rest of the areas and that really was necessary because there wasn't another parking lot that really could accommodate a large RV v.. So the old faithful parking lot is the only one that was really that size so the next morning we headed out with Rg and and came in through that West entrance and pretty soon after that there was a spot to pullover actually we had a bison on the road that was in our ways we kind of had to wait for the Bison to cross Ross and head over to the river and then we could see a bunch of different bison over in that area and then the first place though that we had set on our agenda agenda to go to see was grand prize medic spring and This is the Norris Geyser Basin. It's important to go here first thing in the morning because there's just Very limited parking so I mean maybe maybe thirty cars can fit in this parking lot and really not. RV's RV's we saw a couple RV but they were like short RV's class bees or vans. It's not really intended for RV's to be able to park in there so limited parking in even for cars and there's actually people that were kind of parking on the main road on the way in there before you even took the turn off. I don't know if that's allowed. And if arranger was making a move or not but we did have to wait here for a while so we probably should wait ten or fifteen minutes just in the line of people until something freed up in in in a parking spot opened up but this was the only place that we had to wait for the whole entire trip. That's why we got here though and we did this first thing and in terms of where grand prize medic spring is. I would put it at like ten o'clock mark so it's kind of On the west side but a little further south. What's so cool about GRANDPA pigeon springs is that you're seen this hot springs with the bacteria that are the different colors and the color? Differentiation is really exciting in. And you see this blue and orange and red and just all these fantastic colors that you just don't see in nature like this so it's really neat to see if you so you can actually walk on a boardwalk that will take you up to the main part of GRANDPA's matic springs and it's probably only maybe a half mile. Maybe three quarters of a mile. It's not that bad of a hike and like I said it's a boardwalk so it's the kind of thing you could push stroller if you needed to You also if you wanted to get a bird's bird's eye view of the grandkids medic springs. We didn't do this but next time. I definitely want to do this. You can do. The ferry falls hike which is kind of the access for this this kind of over by old faithful. It takes about three to four hours to do because it's about six miles but when you get up to the top you're getting this bird's eye view or you're looking down onto the GRANDPA's medic spring. And that would be really cool to see so as you keep heading counterclockwise around the lower loop from the whole kind. A six o'clock to three o'clock spread you're driving along yellowstone lake and this is the largest high altitude lake. It's really beautiful. We actually stopped here at Lake Lodge and one had an eight some lunch and because it was the fall there was nobody in the restaurant it was perfect to just sit there and sit fitted one of the windows and look out over. The view was really beautiful. This is also pretty close to the location where fishing bridge is at. And we'll talk more about that in the Campground Ron area but fishing bridge is a wonderful place to stay. It's close it puts you right in there. It's only for our vis It's been closed for renovations but they are opening it up this September so it's open pretty soon not in time for this summer but if you're going in the fall you'll be good and then for next sure and it'll give you a place to stay. So that's where this locations at if you keep heading counterclockwise and keep heading up at about probably like the two who o'clock part of the lower loop you get to mud volcano in Hayden Valley so Hayden Valleys on the inside of the loop and it's just this kind a flat space where you're likely to see wildlife so you're getting these big amazing vistas because you have the flat valley and then you have the peaks heats and the background and it's a great place to try to see different wildlife even wolves. Some of them might be in the Hayden Valley Area A- At least it's one of your better spots to check them out and then mud volcano is super cool. There's boiling mud pots. And Dragon's mouth is located here and Dragon's mouth was my kid's favorite thing..

"That travel part time in our motorhome. Home Jayco Seneca and we know a jeep travel with our dog and tend to visit a lot of the national parks. Because we're trying to take our girls to all the national parks before before they head off to college and I think we are now at number twenty seven or twenty eight so Trying to hit those all up and we try to bring information to you. That's useful useful for your trips in your RV and In particular to the national parks so on my instagram feed. Recently I asked the people well so the question that I get asked a lot is which is your favorite national park. And it's hard to just pick a favorite national park right. That's like picking a favorite Beatles Song. You can't can't do that. That depends on your mood and it depends on what you're looking for and there's different things you like about all of them so I don't think I could answer a favorite park but if if you were to ask me what's one park that I think every family should go to so if a family said they're only going to go to one national park with their kids. They've never done a national national park vacation. Where should they go? I definitely know my answer and it was the one that came up. The most in asking other people and that response was yellowstone. Oh Stone National Park and why is it that people love Yellowstone National Park while. I think there's three things that really make yellowstone amazing. The first first thing is just its overall size. It's really a huge park and there's so much of it that is unique and different throughout the park. So of course. The biggest national park in the lower forty eight is not yellowstone. Actually Death Valley But a lot of death valley might be kinda similar throughout yellowstone In contrast has a lot of very different properties depending on where you are within the park so I think it's a really unique and explorer floral. Land you really can get to a lot of places within the park or see those different types of highlights In a reasonable way it also is so so large that it goes into three states so for the most part it is in Wyoming but it also goes a little bit into Idaho and then a bit into Montana as well and and it's the only national park to do that to go into three states and it really is the type of park that has park and wildlife and wilderness. As as far as the I can see so you can be in a place and and as far as you can look which is far out west sometimes you have these huge vistas that gopher Everything is just still wildlife. There's not a lot of development that's on the fringe of it so you don't get this and you don't have you know things like oilfields oilfields and stuff like when Teddy Roosevelt or something. Where you have this other part of just an commercial life? That's imposing onto the national park. Instead you really feel like you're out in the wilderness you feel like You can even feel like it was the early cowboys and everybody saw when they were doing wagons west and heading out and it just it feels raw and I think that that wild feel is part of the reason people like it. The second thing I think makes yellowstone amazing is the wildlife so there's really abundant wildlife there's unique wildlife. If you like your kind of mammals and your larger animals you get at that chance to see Bison here and you can see elk and you can see grizzly bears and you can see regular bears you can see blackberries to But you you can see grizzly bears which you can't see I in Colorado. We don't get to see grizzly bears. They also have wolves up in yellowstone. We're starting to get wolves in Colorado but a lot of places you can't see wolves it's I gotta be honest. Though I've been yellowstone three times never seen a wolf there so But you you have. At least a potential to see him in yellowstone so there's a lot lot of wildlife and is just really cool to be able to experience that I guarantee when you go you will see bison that's pretty much given you're probably very likely going to see elk and I have been there and seen grizzly bears. So it's possible to see grizzly bears. The wolves are you probably going to have to work a little bit harder if you want to do that. So that's the the second reason I think yellowstone is super easy and then the third reason which I think is probably the biggest reason is that it exists on top of this Super Volcano. Okay no and that super volcano feeds the world's largest collection of hydrothermal features. So this is probably what makes this park such a popular Park Park as an international destination. When you go there you'll hear a lot of different languages spoken and have a lot of international people that are surrounding you because It is such a unique thing that that is the biggest place in the world to see all these hydrothermal features which is so cool. And so what are some of those features while there's five types of hydrothermal features features. You can see there. The first are the hot springs and so the hot springs are hot. Water with bacteria in them in this bacteria. Arterial will The type of bacteria that you have will depend on the temperature of the water. So you can have these pools pools of water where it's a little bit hotter towards the center and so it may be. It's a bluish color and then as you get out towards the fringe the type of bacteria that like that temperature are maybe orangish appear orange to us and reddish so you end up with these different colors in these hot pools based on the type of bacteria that's in there and probably the best view of this is grand prize medic springs which is part of the lower loop and we'll go through both the loops but just make a note that that's part of the lower loop and then one of the the second feature that I wanted to talk about are the geysers so geysers are where you have constricted hot water and then it just shoots up and rises up and so the one. That's probably most well known for that is old faithful which is also in the lower loop and and Old Faithfuls called that because it's generally pretty predictable in terms of the time and I think it was something like ninety minutes so generally if you're going to go there are and you're going to hang around for about two hours or so. You're you're guaranteed to see it in that time. So it's not exactly like clockwork because this is mother nature. But it's pretty consistent. So they they call it old faithful the third hydrothermal feature are the travertine terraces. And so this is where you have limestone and hot water over it. That creates this chock white travertine stone and so this can best be seen up at mammoth hot springs which is part of the upper loop the fourth hydro thermal feature are the funerals and these are steam vents so the smoke is just kind of coming out of the ground ground and the best place to see. This is roaring mountain which is up on the upper loop as well and then the fifth hydrothermal feature are the mud pots and these these are acidic springs. But they're so little water in the area that instead of seen kind of this water pool like you would with the other hot springs like Grand Prize medic spring instead instead. You're seeing the mud boil and so probably the best example of this is artists paint pots. which is part of the lower loop as well so those are some of the great features of yellowstone and probably some of the reasons at such popular park and when we come back? We're going to talk about logistics of the park and just some of the general things that you're going to want to know so I think one of the most important things to know about yellowstone is just how huge of a park it is is and knowing that the entrances for it are miles away from where the actual tourist sites are at and sometimes the towns can be miles away from where the entrances are for the park. So you could be camping somewhere and it could beat two hours for you to get to old faithful from where you're staying If you're not staying same within the park so I've heard. Sometimes I've seen people ask questions like on facebook and stuff. Oh can we stay Jackson hole and just do a couple of days and tetons is and do a couple of days in yellowstone and I guess the answer is yes technically you could but you'd probably be doing like twelve or fourteen hour days in your car because there's so much much driving time in that type of plan and nobody really wants to do that so I think the best thing to do is to stay somewhere within N- grantee on or close to Grand Teton. If you're wanting to do that as part of your trip and do that for a little bit of time like maybe two or three days and then head up and stay someplace that's either within yellowstone national park or just outside of their for three or four days in order to make that work so I think ideally it would be the best probably spend two to three days and tetons three to four up in yellowstone and to stay in those locations for the time that you're going to explore those parks because stained somewhere outside side of town and then trying to get to both of those parks. It's just GonNa make for long miserable days so I don't think you'll be as happy if you do that. So just know try to stay closer In there and then the other thing to know about it is that the park actually makes within yellowstone. It's almost like two loops that are attached. So it's almost like a number eight and so we'll talk about things in terms of the lower loop which is like the bottom half of the eight and then the upper loop which is like the top half of the eight and just so you know the lower loop if you were just to drive the lower loop not stop anywhere not be held up by traffic or animals in the road or anything if you were just to drive it doing the forty five mile per hour speed limit which it is most the time it would still take you like two or three hours probably closer to three hours to actually really drive around that loop so you can imagine if you actually want to stop and see things or you have to stop and wait for parking. That's significantly going to increase that time time. So you need a lot of time to see this park Having said that though I do want to throw out our story and just tell you how we did yellowstone yellowstone so I on our most recent trip with our RV so we got our two thousand Nineteen Jayco Seneca in September so it was like the first week of September in this was in two thousand eighteen. And so we got our Seneca and everybody says on your first trip stay close to home. Go somewhere where you have resources. Go somewhere where you'd have people to help you out. In case there is a problem and I think that's amazing advice We didn't take that advice advice though because what happened was we were going to go somewhere close to home so we were heading on. I eighty and we were going to head Dinosaur National Monument which we still have not seen and it's not that far for us and we were driving on the highway and saw the sign for yellowstone. Teton you know coming up at this exit and just said okay. Yeah let's do it. Our girls hadn't been. Let's just do it so we went to yellowstone and grand teton without any reservations without any of my maps and guidebooks and all the typical stuff I do to plan. I'm one of those people that over plan. All the trips as you can imagine My husband's more the fly by the seat of his pants. Kinda guy and we did that for this trip and it worked out fine fine now having said that this was mid September so I think we started the trip on probably like the fifteenth of September so middle of September..

"John this is the job that's a show of Yellowstone National Park it is a gem of the solar system however within that Jack it's not just the geysers or the beautiful landscape or the excited tourists and the wonderful ice cream it's also the large animals particularly L. but there are lots of them for like it animals that these animals have been there since the ice laughed in Montana since the ice left in Wyoming and the west since the eyes were treated and expose North America in addition to the ice leaving it made room for the large animals to take up a new annual track called the Great Migration the amazing thing to discover is that we didn't know about it until recently and I welcome Brian you know blondes Kay he is the executive director of property environment a research center perk in Bozeman Montana Brian a very good evening to you the Yellowstone park and the surrounding area because Yellowstone's just totally eight nineteen centuries been there this this whole area has been there for ten thousand years has in it the Great Migration how do you define that and why did it take us so long to find it good evening to you Brian well it's great to be on your show John appreciate it yeah I know what you're describing is the greater Yellowstone ecosystem people think of Yellowstone National Park and that's just a small part of the ecosystem ecosystem itself is about twenty two million acres which if you think of it's about the size of the state of Indiana and straddles three state and it's also the home of the largest land mammal migrations that we have in the lower forty eight states right now elk pronghorn mule deer all use what is essentially the largest intact temper ecosystem temperate zone eco system on the planet can move back and forth across this landscape for their own survival and you ask a question about how the how do we know we're not know these migrations were happening you the advances in technology with the GPS and tracking devices just within the last ten years have given us a lot better sense of where the elk start and where they end and where they're going in between through the through the course of the year and so if you think of if you think of Yellowstone National Park you think of this like a pulmonary system Yellowstone National Park is like the beating heart it's the center of the system and then you've got these arteries which are essentially migration corridors coming out of Yellowstone National Park that poor from the high country the Yellowstone down into the low country along the river valleys we could be like your capillaries and those calories are essentially like private ranchers that ranch in the river valleys around Yellowstone they follow what is called the green wave what is that price yeah I think we call that surfing the green wave so so you know all these migrations begin and end somewhere and they usually begin and on private ranches imparted ranges are low country so when the winner the elk tend to be in the low country where grass is exposed where there's alfalfa field so that they can feed on our four to they can feed on and then as the spring calms you get grass shoots sprouting up in those grass shoots through the course of months go higher and higher in elevation and that the L. Kurds simply follow the grass there there they they like to eat the young shoots of grass that's most nutritious for them and so the follow the young shoots of grass from the lower elevation ranches all the way up to the plateau of Yellowstone in the middle of summer and then when the snows come back and they'll just reversed course and head back down to the river valley the animals names in a piece by your colleague Tom Wilkinson elk deer pronghorn moves bison bighorn sheep and mountain goats now I'm going to guess they don't obey boundaries and that this Great Migration extends out I've focused on Yellowstone because this is such a spectacular event to visit Yellowstone but do these great migrations include all of the western states and is it moving to Canada do we know how big the track they are you know some of the migration to our the but the migrations do cover most of the western states in the eleven western states that we think of in the in the lower forty eight but you're right al don't read signs so there they're moving from public land to moving from national parks to the National Forest in National Wildlife Refuge to state land to private land and some of these can go as long I mean one of the longest that we know of is a mule deer that that name was appropriately named mule deer two fifty five and she migrated essentially two hundred fifty miles from the red desert and south central Wyoming up into island park Idaho which is to the western side of Yellowstone at the two hundred fifty mile migration that she made we had GPS tracking on her and then he reversed course into the migration all way back so you know total round about five hundred miles for that mule deer the Great Migration describes these large beautiful animals and you can see them in the summertime in the winter time but I learned from Todd will consume as well that it describes an ecosystem that depends upon the migrating animals not only for the love flora and fauna but also for their carcasses house so yes so you know the the migrations and healthy L. Kurds actually support the large carnivores because as we have grizzly bears recovering we have wars coming back in the area we have mountain lions they all pray on the oak that's a primary food source for those for those large carnivores into large carnivorous will feed on the elk and then they'll leave the carcasses there for scavengers becomes a bird species coyotes fox others that that will come and pray so it's it's really a primary food source for other species in the ecosystem and it's also good for the economics of the eco system also hunters in this area I'm in Montana hunters relying on elk to feed their families through the course of the year so healthy elk herd help hunters and as you noted Taurus you know flock to Yellowstone C. species like elk and bison so so it's good for not just the ecosystem but the economy as well I've learned and reporting on Africa and reporting on the subcontinent that the chief threat to large animals any animal system is the destruction of the habitat and and that means that we have to deal not only with public land Yellowstone but with private land is that is that a program that exists in the western concern they lack of private landowners with this great migration well you hit the nail on the head habitat loss is the number one threat development around here is the number one threat you know of those twenty two million acres I described about twenty seven percent of that is private lands and we know that elk spend up to eighty percent of their time in the winter on private lands so the private the ranchers these are primarily cattle ranches they're doing an amazing job they are great the words of the habitat they're great stewards of the species but there is economic consequences for for them providing that stewardship for them help is oftentimes not too much of an asset as they are a liability elk will move on to their land they will destroy senses they'll eat forage that was designed for cattle and they are often transmitters of disease they can wipe out whole cattle herds so perk is really trying to work with these private land stewards he's working ranches and trying to figure out how we can find market based mechanisms that will help make the oak less of a liability or more of an asset to them so they can keep doing what they do best which is being working land a private ranches and not having to feel the pressure to convert to to develop Brian now that we see this great migration the pathways is it going to be advertised or publicized they're gonna have signs up for people can see it here in the east coast for example there's much attention the Appalachian Trail and people are proud to live near it is that possible in the west as well you know it's a tricky dynamic here lines on the map can kind of cut both ways for conservationists and scientists and and government folks and folks who care about the corridors lines on the map a really neat things and they're something that or worth looking at for ranchers and private landowners lines on a map or pretty scary thing it's not always good for the landowners often times if they are if they're land is part of that corridor they often look at that and think on getting more regulation or more oversight is is coming my way you know I have a friend out here who is told me that in Montana you can bring a gun to a meeting you just can't bring a map to a meeting and that kind of the thought process out here so there's a sensitivity among the scientists who are working on these corridors in tracking them that it's important to know where they are it's important to know where to focus resources and attention but at the same time there's a there's a downside to being on a map but if folks come to Yellowstone in the summer they will see LPL will be in the park in the summer in the high country primarily they'll see these movements in the shoulder seasons you know in the spring and the fall when the when the elk are moving in and out of the parking coming down to the river valleys in those river valleys are really how you access the part when you come to Yellowstone you'll go through paradise valley we'll go to the Madison value you'll come to Jackson and that's where those ultimately end up and finally before your got here these these migration pass existed is this what the native Americans followed they were aware of this and they camped accordingly yeah I know they were nomadic people and they often followed the great herds we know we had you know thirty to fifty million bison that roamed as far east as Ford if you can believe it and so those and no matter generally followed follow the animals in the open no different it's it's interesting that it sort of now Yellowstone is the focus of this because as we know as as as the United States has developed a to have intact ecosystems is something rare these days and and again Yellowstone is one of the largest intact temperature and eco system so that's why we continue to have these migrations in this particular part of the country Brian yeah Blonsky is executive director of the property environment research center we've been speaking of the Great Migration Yellowstone I recommend a recent article by his colleague a journalist Todd Wilkinson's on the migration itself I'm John batches wintertime they'll be migrating soon

"John this is the John Kasich of Yellowstone National Park it is a gem of the solar system however within that Jack it's not just the geysers or the beautiful landscape or the excited tourists and the wonderful ice cream it's also the large animals particularly L. but there are lots of them for like an animal's that these animals have been there since the ice laughed in Montana since the ice left in Wyoming and the west since the eyes were treated and expose North America in addition to the ice leaving it made room for the large animals to take up a an annual track called the Great Migration the amazing thing to discover is that we didn't know about it until recently and I welcome Brian yelled Blonsky he is the executive director of property environment a research center perk in Bozeman Montana Brian a very good evening to you the Yellowstone park and the surrounding area because Yellowstone's just tell the eight nineteen centuries been there this this whole areas been there for ten thousand years has in it the Great Migration how do you define that and why did it take so long to find good evening to you Brian well it's great to be on your show John appreciate it yeah I know what you're describing is the greater Yellowstone ecosystem people think of Yellowstone National Park and that's just a small part of the ecosystem ecosystem itself is about twenty two million acres which if you think of it about the size of the state of Indiana and straddles three state and it's also the home of the largest land mammal migrations that we have in the lower forty eight states right now elk pronghorn mule deer all use what is essentially the largest intact temper ecosystem tempered zone eco system on the planet to move back and forth across this landscape for their own survival and you ask a question about how how do we know we're not know these migrations were happening you the advances in technology with GPS and tracking devices just within the last ten years have given us a lot better sense of where the elk start and where they end and where they're going in between to the to the course of the year and so if you think of if you think of Yellowstone National Park you think of this like a pulmonary system of Yellowstone National Park is like the beating heart it's the center of the system and then you've got these arteries which are essentially migration corridors coming out of Yellowstone National Park that poor from the high country Yellowstone down into the low country along the river valleys we could delete your capillaries and those calories are simply like private ranchers that ranch in the river valleys around Yellowstone they follow what is called the green wave what is that price yeah I think we call it surfing the green wave so so you know all these migrations begin and end up somewhere and they usually begin and on private ranches in private ranges are low country so when the winner the elk tend to be in the low country where grass is exposed where there's alfalfa field so that they can feed owner for to they compete on and then as the spring calms you getting crash shoots sprouting up in those grass shoots through the course of months go higher and higher in elevation and that the elk herds simply follow the grass there there they they like to eat the young shoots of grass that's most nutritious for them and they'll follow the young shoots of grass from the lower elevation ranches all the way up to the plateau of Yellowstone in the middle of summer and then when the snows come back and they'll just reversed course and head back down to the river valley the animals names in a piece by your colleague Todd will consume elk deer pronghorn moves bison bighorn sheep and mountain goats now I'm going to guess they don't obey boundaries and that this Great Migration extends out I've focused on Yellowstone because it's just such a spectacular event to visit Yellowstone but do these great migrations include all of the western states and is it moving to Canada do we know how big the track they are you know some of the migration are up to but the migrations do cover most of the western states in the eleven western states that we think of in the in the lower forty eight but you're right L. don't read signs so there they're moving from public land to moving from national parks hood National Forest in National Wildlife Refuge to state land to private land and some of these can go as long as he won the longest that we know of is a mule deer that that name was appropriately named mule deer two fifty five and she migrated essentially two hundred fifty miles from the red desert in south central Wyoming up into island park Idaho which is to the western side of Yellowstone at the two hundred fifty mile migration that she made we had GPS tracking on her and then he reversed course into the migration all way back so you know total round about five hundred miles for that mule deer the Great Migration describes these large beautiful animals and you can see them in the summertime in the winter time but I learned from Todd will consume as well that it describes an ecosystem that depends upon the migrating animals not only for the love flora and fauna but also for their carcasses house so yes so you know the the migrations and healthy L. Kurds actually support the large carnivores because as we have grizzly bears recovering we have wars coming back in the area we have mountain lions they all play on the out that's the primary food source for those up for those large carnivores into large carnivorous will feed on the elk and then they'll leave the carcasses there for scavengers becomes a bird species coyotes fox others that that will come in price so it's it's really a primary food source for other species in the ecosystem and it's also good for the economics of the ecosystem also hunters in this area I'm in Montana hunters

Could micro-organisms revolutionise our food?
"For the first time will also be recording this for video on our Youtube Channel so today we're here to talk about Crowell food an extreme file is a microbe that can survive in extreme conditions one star up in Chicago has found a way of turning these microbes rapa creatures into an edible protein part of a growing trend towards a microbial revolution in Food and agriculture could microbes hold the key to feeding a growing relation here with me in the studio to discuss this is Emiko Tarazona commodities correspondent and Clive Cookson science editor thanks for joining today Emiko to start with tell us a bit about this company and what it is trying to do so sustainable biproduct is a start up in the US yes and it's turning and micro that discovered in yellowstone national park into protein so they are going to use precision fermentation and they again A to turn this protein into alternative dairy and meat products like burgers and microbial base cheese wow has it garnered much first from investor's overall the search for alternative proteins is such a hot topic in Food and agriculture these days and comes as increasing income uh-huh in developing countries and when populations become more rich they moved from carbohydrates to prestige products I meet but people can't continue easing me because of the environmental is also health concerns as well so we've had the plant based meat products impossible Burger and beyond meat and the search is on for alternative sources of protein among entrepreneurs and scientists and so yes investors are we interested sustainable by products is raised she three million early this year from companies including France's Danone and Archer Daniels Midland which is an agricultural trade we've got some really serious money behind them what to these products actually tastes like have you tried any yourself when you talk about protein means you'll have a protein which is a source of the product by the vehicle for the taste so I think the idea there is to reduce the taste of the channel whatever you using it sauce itself like pre protein which is used in beyond meat you don't want it tastes like peas yeah so you want the protein to be pures possible with Mike I have not tasted was actually not on the market so I have not tasted volcanic microbial burgers but the other uses with proteins is as food ingredient to enhance the taste of a certain product or change the way the product tastes for instance impossible foods I uses a protein called him which is made from soy and that is made from precision fermentation and it adds the meaty taste gene. The bugah wow so how optimistic are you I mean is this pine sky or do you think this is genuinely changing the way that we wing to source proteins in our food well I didn't think it's Pine Sky Tool because you already have corn for instance that is more not not C. O. R. A. But exactly due to you O. R. N. and that is made from a micro protein which is a sort of fungus and that's been around forever clive you know better than me in Qu'une dates back to the nineteen eighties and it's a good thing to think of anyone has headcorn it is as you said a vehicle for taste quarter is growing out of single celled fungus which you can define `as Microbe F- Initiative Mike Grove is somewhat stretchy incubators any organism that you can't see with the naked eye as the individual cells and you have to onto microscope to identify them that's so interesting I mean microbe seem to be having a bit of a moment recently why have they come into the spotlight now I guess spotlight might be the wrong where maybe under the telescope from yes what's the wider scientific picture here well when it comes to food one of the most important changes as of the twenty first century in in nutrition and even I would say in medicine is understanding that the billions of microbes the bacteria that live in our what's play a gigantic role in our health not just how we digest food that's the most important thing but even welby being psychologically the microbes within our body of vital and therefore there's a big and growing industry you're trying to produce microbes not say much as food but to populate guts with friendly bacteria so that's a very big growth area Another is that might cribs used to ferment foods of being extended a lot everything from Kim Chae to sauerkraut route to the molds are cheeses to bear in wine they depend on microbes one sort or another and so using microbes to produce protein I mean could this be scaled up used worldwide I mean are there inhibiting factors will I think we have to remember uh-huh like all new foods microbial food stamp grow on thin air they will need a lot of input of water nutrients at that try so from the environmental point of view that are not going to be completely benign now they're probably going to be more sustainable and growing card which spends a lot of its energy wondering around fields and belching and burping and emitting methane which is a very powerful greenhouse gas but I think those environmental questions need to be answered and they haven't yet been answered by the new foods companies that are making not only microbial foods CACO's talking about earlier but also sell based meat and fish products web rather than growing a cow will catching a fish you'll grow the proteins and the muscle the fibers hopefully trying to capture the texture and taste in the lab and where does this fit into other types of new food technologies I think they're going to be seen alongside these other cell taste foods a lot of progress is being made in taking for example stem cells from cowes Castle and getting them to develop essentially and to meet and if you combine that with Three D. Printing you can get something that's good texture I mean that's one possibility abass meat but I guess this whole microbial fungus bacterial activity I mean how will consume is really react to it is the uh-huh because it's cruel to animals and I didn't think cruelty to microbes is going to enter the picture remains to be seen sustainable but biproduct CEO has told me that he wants is to get a product out into the market either on a trial basis or onto the shelves at least in about eighteen months in the US so it'll be interesting to see what sort of marketing strategy he takes a certified next Winter Christmas twenty twenty we could be having microbial something on the shelf test smoke it I think probably not in London yeah yeah as a final question I wanted to ask you both do you think there's an argument that time and money would be better spent encouraging food and agricultural offices that are more sustainable rather than creating new products that sort of enable everyone to keep consuming in the same way I think that's a really interesting question but I suspect that the horses kind of left the stable that consumers want convenient food that they crave and also the newly rid sh developing country population they also want that as well they expect that and on the other hand you'd companies and fast food companies won't all that so can we continue killing life is to have diversity I think from a sustainability and health point of view giving consumers as rich and diverse mixture of foods as

"I'm Noel king. And I'm Rachel Martin. The partial government shutdown is now on its twelfth day. And it's starting to take a toll on some of America's national parks, while many of the parks have stayed open. They are doing so without full park service staff. Right. So volunteer. Ears and businesses that depend on the parks or passing out garbage bags and asking visitors to follow the rules. Stay on the trails. Don't start illegal campfires still. It is not easy. Andy similar off Cohen's a company called stone adventures. It's a rock climbing guide business in Joshua tree. National park in southern California every year in the high season weeks. We hear stories about this fights over campground people who park legally on Instagram, we see people who are climbing and Joshua cheeser hanging hammocks. All of that activity is illegal. She says this year is no different. But is not staffed as it usually is. And so the local community is taking it upon themselves to try and do something. Some Roth is also worried about the desert ecosystem, very fragile to human intact. So one example is the topsoil it's very easy to destroy that.
