@MileHigh, Are you coming in through the South entrance?

From what I've seen, it look like the lower loop will be fine by then. I'm waiting to see video from the Lamar Valley. I hope that didn't suffer the same as the North entrance. Cooke City will be in bad shape as far as supplies go. I can't see tanker trucks making it in over the pass, but I could be wrong.

From what I understand the road was washed away at Soda Butte in Lamar Valley. IIRC that is just east of the employee lodging area.

I have reservations to stay at Grant Village for 6 nights in late August and then Colter Bay for another 3. Based on the superintendent's media update yesterday, I'm going to keep the reservations for now.

Though I had several back country hikes planned in the North loop, there is still plenty to see and do in the South. Was sure hoping to drive through Lamar Valley and into Silvergate and Cooke City but will have to wait until another time now...
Definitely keep your spot. Everything except the north gate should be normal by then. You can always drive to the northern parts of park from GT
