Yellowstone Expects Strong Tourism Season

Cody, WY – The superintendent of Yellowstone National
Park says early signs point to a strong tourist season this summer.

Superintendent Suzanne Lewis says she's optimistic, despite the high gas prices, because reservations are at the same level or
ahead of last year. She noted that 2007 was a record year for Yellowstone, with visitation up 10 percent.

Lewis spoke Monday during National Parks Day, a traditional summer tourism kickoff event in Cody.
