(AP) – Both fire and ice briefly hindered travel into Yellowstone National Park on the National Park Service’s centennial anniversary. Authorities closed a portion of the Beartooth Highway Wednesday night due to snow and ice from a summer snowstorm. Crews cleared the roadway and reopened it Thursday morning. The popular two-lane mountain highway runs from Red Lodge, Montana, over the Beartooth Pass to Yellowstone’s Northeast Entrance. At the other end of the park, a wildfire has closed a portion of the road leading to Yellowstone’s South Entrance since Monday. Visitors heading to Thursday’s celebration and concert in Yellowstone from the south face an hour-long detour into Idaho. (Copyright 2016 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
