“We’ve been out in these trucks for eight weeks, so they’re kind of dirty. We live out of them for eight weeks.”
Each spring, from March to mid-April, road crews of Yellowstone take on the monumental task or removing snow and getting the roads passable for summer visitors.
KXLH went out and spoke with the good people that make that happen ever year like Yellowstone mechanic, Robert Evanoff, who is as tough as he is humble:
“Well I think most of the guys here take really good pride in their work. We try not to waste the taxpayers’ money. I hate that unsung hero thing. We just come and do our job.”
Thanks to Robert Evanoff and all the hardworking folks at Yellowstone for getting these roadways open so we can enjoy our national treasures!
***Even though the park sets definite dates for opening the roads, weather still has the final word and roads can close again at any time. At least through May it’s a good idea to check the Yellowstone National Park website to make sure the road you want to take is still open for your visit.
