Grand Teton National Park has put almost 35,000 miles on their Idaho Norland 1800 rotary plow since purchasing it new in 1974.

Brad Boner has directed the News&Guide’s visuals since 2004 and worked as a photojournalist for more than 20 years. He lives on the west side of the Tetons with his wife, two kids, two grumpy cats and an old blue heeler, Sadie.

Doesn't look electric to me. How much fossil fuel gets burned running this environmental hazard? They should just let mother nature take care of the snow and not allow any visitors to Yellowstone or GTNP until it melts out on it's own.
