Sea Kayaking in Yellowstone National Park is a far better experience than kayaking on Hebgen lake, outside the town of West Yellowstone.
Work on the Hebgen Basin Fuels Reduction Project on the Gallatin National Forest will begin this week outside West Yellowstone. The project will remove timber near the Madison Arm of Hebgen Lake.
This commercial aspect of the project is the final component in the Hebgen Basin area. In conjunction with the work the Forest Service is implementing a closure while heavy equipment is working in the area.
A nice thing about national parks over national forest lands is they remain protected and preserved in the their natural state.
