I was in front (in August )and got soaked. I did not wear a wet suit. It started to rain and got windy during the last half hour, but we kept moving to keep warm!

The North gate is the only gate open this time of year, so you will be able to get into the Park. You will see lots of bison and hopefully elk! Enjoy Gardiner! It’s a cute town.
