Record visits to park in AugustSep 13, 2017 From wire reports
BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) -- Yellowstone National Park has recorded its busiest August, in part because of the solar eclipse.
Yellowstone tallied 916,166 visits last month, marking the first time the month surpassed 900,000 visits in the park's history. That's a 9 percent increase over the total in August 2016.
Park officials say the eclipse brought more visitors, especially in the days before and after.
