Historic Yellowstone National Park Tour Bus
Posted on 20 June 2012
I have been looking forward to photographing one of these historic buses throughout our vacation a few weeks ago. We found this one on the last day of our vacation, before heading back home, in Yellowstone National Park. Our first two vacation stops were in Zion and Bryce National Parks, each of the two National Parks had these buses to ferry visitors around in starting in the early 1930′s. I was very disappointed that these buses were not parked in front of the park lodges where I saw them last in the 1970′s.
I understand that there are eight historic yellow buses running in Yellowstone and a few more red historic buses running in Glacier National Park. It is good to see these buses again doing their job as they once did long ago.
That is my beautiful wife Nancy standing next to this bus for scale.
