VP Pence in Yellowstone

Vice President Mike Pence speaks to park employees Thursday at Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park.

A blast from Old Faithful interrupted Vice President Mike Pence as he spoke to Yellowstone National Park employees gathered at the popular tourist destination.  

Old Faithful erupted at 11:57 a.m. today. After the geyser finished spouting, Pence resumed his 15-minute address. He repeatedly assured the federal workers that the Trump Administration has their backs.

“I can assure you you’ve got another conservation president,” Pence said.

The Jackson Hole News&Guide is on scene for Pence's visit to the country's first national park, and more coverage will follow.

Mike has reported on the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem's wildlife, wildlands and the agencies that manage them for 7 years. A native Minnesotan, he arrived in the West to study environmental journalism at the University of Colorado.
