Ride 'em Cowboy - Snowmobiles Back in Action

Snowmobiles. I've written so much about them that you think I owned one. Not so. Never even ridden on one. Not that I have no desire to - I think it would be fun - but I've just never had the chance.

So, if you've followed the story here before, you're up to speed. If not, click on the link and read up if you want to know more. In any event here's the short version:

In the previous episodes on snowmobiles (to borrow a phrase from TV), the environmentalists have been trying to stop the use of the machines in Yellowstone National Park. They went to Washington, D.C. to find a judge to hear the case. Not surprisingly, the judge limited the use of snowmobiles this winter. That was the story up through today. Now there's another twist in the saga.

Not satisfied with the D.C. judge's ruling, the snowmobilers went to their home state, Wyoming to find a sympathetic judge.

They did. The Wyoming judge just issued an injunction that effectively reinstated the snowmobilers to Yellowstone.

Now, the machines can blaze down trails throughout the Park.

Ride 'em cowboy.
