OK, so has anyone else out there in Ynet land ever been denied vacation time when you had plans to go to Yellowstone ? It happened to me this year….vacation request rejected…ugh this was so hard to tell the kids who were so excited to go back to YNP. Oh well, planning for next year !Here’s a pic from last year, the kids playing on the Yellowstone Picnic Trail.
Greetings “fellow Pennsylvanian”…….I certainly share your pain!!! While I’ve not being denied vacation time to the Park (can’t imagine being all set to go & then being told, “sorry, no!!”) hubby & I will not be making a visit this year for the first time since ’04! I alternate w/ avoiding the forum and the “heartache” it brings, and especially since I have nothing to contribute, and then voraciously reading every post and viewing every picture for some sort of absentee comfort”!Sue

Yep, my vacation time had been approved for months and my supervisor told me a couple of weeks before that she was going to an international conference of midwives in another country and I would have to take leave later. As it turned out the conference was cancelled due to terrorist attacks but she kept the time off for herself. That was the year that 264 & her cubs were so visible, by the time I got my leave later in the year she had gotten tired of the tourists and I didn’t see her that year.

Working for Counter Assault, I don’t even have a chance for a vacation during the summer! There is no way, I will even be able to think about it until after labor day, but I am thinking about going to the Atlanta 500 this year in Georgia.
With my limited knowledge of worldly subjects, I could be!
In my biz you gotta make hey while the sun shines, so there are times when I just can’t get away. So far this year, its been one thing after another. But I’m pretty determined to get to the park, even if its “just” for the fall colors.Cheers B
That’s a bummer. You work hard all year, make plans, and then whammy they take back their approval for your vacation time. I hope that you get blessed next year twice over for vacation that you didn’t get this year.
I feel your pain. I didn’t go this spring because I thought I was going to get a fall trip but that is looking like a no go. Hope it works out better next year. At least I don’t have kids to tell. I bet your’s are heartbroken.

24 hours of Datona is on my mind for this January. Then camping and wildlife shooting in Florida. I’m not sure I’ll have the funds this fall for a trip so it may be delayed. A >$3k tractor tire bill put a hole in my pocket.
The farm keeps me around in the summer. Fall and winter trips only.

Wow, I would be pretty heartbroken if that happened. I guess every company is different. At mine I always plan most vacations a year ahead of time and just tell them a few months ahead of time that I will be gone.
Yellowstone National Park is home to some 10,000 thermal features, over 500 hundred of which are geysers. In fact, Yellowstone contains the majority of the worlds geysers. Old Faithful is the most popular attraction in Yellowstone National Park, and everyone who visits for the first time should watch this most famous of geysers erupt. Although neither the highest or most regular geyser in the Park, it is spectacular. Learn more about Yellowstone's Geysers hereHistory: The human history of the Yellowstone region goes back more than 11,000 years. From about 11,000 years ago to the very recent past, many groups of Native Americans used the park as their homes, hunting grounds, and transportation routes. These traditional uses of Yellowstone lands continued until a little over 200 years ago when the first people of European descent found their way into the park. In 1872 a country that had not yet seen its first centennial established Yellowstone as the first national park in the world. A new concept was born and with it a new way for people to preserve and protect the best of what they had for the benefit and enjoyment of future generations.

About 2 million years ago,
then 1.2 million years ago,
and then again 600,000 years ago.
The latest eruption spewed out nearly 240 cubic miles of debris.
In recent years, much public attention has focused on the fact that Yellowstone sits astride one of the world's largest active volcanic systems. Questions routinely arise in regards to the likelihood of a volcanic eruption in Yellowstone and the impact of such an eruption.More Geology
