National Parks/Wildlife Jams
The biggest problem of modern tourism is that tourists look for the intact, idyllic nature and - by visiting - destroy it.
Put in the correct forms of the words in brackets. Sometimes you have to add a word.
Parking lots can be crowded (can, crowd) midday at the more popular attractions that time of year. As already said, the early bird is definitely (definite) rewarded with empty parking spaces and wildlife viewing! Tour buses tend to arrive at the various major attractions between (???) 9 and 5. If you plan some longer hikes (a mile or more) for midday (the majority of of visitors never venture more than(???) 100 yards from the parking lot) you'll avoid even that problem, and run into just a few folks on most trails.
But that all said, we've always been able to park where we needed to - often there are lots or spaces off the roads that are a little further|farther (far) away than the lots nearest the attractions - again, if you are willing to walk a little more than the average visitor, you'll have few problems!
Regarding weather, temps in the 70's and some low 80's are common during the day, but since most of Yellowstone is over 7000 feet, it dips into the low 40's or even 30's at night. And of course, thunderstorms and showers are common in the afternoons! You'll be most happy if you dress in layers of clothing and bring a rain jacket.
