how much longer until this thing's going to explode?

37:18 adult
I don't know minutes, you got some place to be?

--no

39:22
in just in a couple of minutes or seconds its going to explode.

Children talking low, off-mic about getting "good spot"

Guy who's just passing through

1:07:19 ac
we're just doing a story about Yellowstone-actually about the fires, how do you think the park looks?

1 :07:25
I've never been here before, I was just passing through, I think it looks pretty nice, I mean its gorgeous

yeah? Have you noticed the burned areas?

1:07:31
I actually haven't gone that way I'm coming from this way, I've seen a lot of it, looks like it went through pretty quickly but I mean its till really pretty ( a bit low) just like a bunch of toothpicks on the side of the mountains, its nice I'm enjoying myself

1 :07:49 do you remember hearing about the fires in 88?

--oh yeah. Saw it on the news and stuff 1:08:59

1:08: 16
that's been ten yrs, I don't know I remember hearing about the fires and I was just passing through here, didn't really dawn on me, it seems like 88' you know it seems like yesterday, but its ten yrs ago I guess you could see a little bit more growing back but I haven't seen as much of the park as I'd like to ... was this space hit the hardest.

Couple

1 :09:08 do you remember the fires of 88?

u-huh

1: 10 yeah we didn't see them but we sure remember them how do you think it looks now?

1:09: 15 oh its remarkable the way its come back uh and all the things that we keep hearing about the recovery vegetation and the wildlife as far as we can tell it seems to be true that uh the impact of the fire was severe, but yet its natures way to regenerate and that seems to be true ...

and you?

1:09:47
I pretty much feel the same way, but it was hard to see all that burned timber, so beautiful before and to see all this stark lumber, timber around, its amazing how the greenery has come back 1:10:08

swiss woman

1: 10:42 It looks terrible I think, I was afraid as I saw it

1:10:46 I don't know how it looks before, it was a surprise ... a lot of little trees but it will takes yrs before it will grow

group of women from University of Washington
not very good

--"looks fine kind of interesting"

guy stationed up in Mammoth, works for Park.
Guy with gr

1:14:32
actually I was surprised I thought maybe the fires were five yrs ago and I was surprised to learn that it was actually ten yrs ago cause I remember seeing it on tv and urn how it was real devastating ... and we came through west yellowstone and all over there its burned all the way to here but it looks pretty good for only ten yrs I think I read something in the blue sky paper that its come back a little more than they expected so it seems pretty good although last time I was here I was twelve yrs old so I remember a lot more trees. A lot more shade.
1:15:17

How long ago was that

1: 15 :20 I'm 34 now so that would be about 22 yrs ago.

1:15:26 did it seem diff then?

1: 15:27 yea I mean just where the trees are burned

1:15:42 I saw a lot more bears then they would come up to peoples cars and people would feed them, of course you don't want to do that. i saw some people in a station wagon with their window cracked open and they were putting food out the window and w/I ten minutes they had three grizzlies on top of their car and they were panicking but they were asking for it, they fed 'em.

6th/7th gr science teachers

1:16:30
I was here the yr after the fires and I was very upset when I went through the canyon area bc ev was so black and I was here two yrs later and we went through the same section again and all the little wildflowers were coming up, and I haven't been back since then so today when we were driving in I was expecting the trees to be back and its still looks like the fires just happened, but if you look very closely you can see all the little saplings and its v enlightening esp since we're science teachers and we had not seen that before so its v exciting to see that
1:17:08

1:17:10
I have never been here before so I did not understand the extent of the damage however it didn't look like I expected I considered a ten yr period of time to be a substantial amt of time to get rid of at least the gray or the dead I really thought it would be greener than it is but still its just a phenomenon its v interesting,
1:17:28

1:17:31
I only seen it in the wintertime I came down from mammoth to here and its v bleak to me to see all the gray and the trees, , ,when I was here in the snow you could see when we were up that way they would point out to us where all the little trees were, . .it would have a flat area and then all those little bumps out there and they were v excited about that
1:18:07

1:18:08
its neat to see how the forest just redoes itself does over I love it I wish I could bring all my students out here.

6th, 7th grade science teachers

talks about tree growth period.

talk about mt st. helen's

***Woman who knows park well and is disappointed with its appearance

1:20:10
well act the last time we were in yellowstone was in 1988 and it looks v different and I'm really disappointed I think it looks very devastated and I don't care for the way it looks now at all.
1:20:26

ac
When in 88?

1:20:31
in july in fact we couldn't use the south entrance bc it was closed bc of the smoke so we had to come in through the west glacier.
1:20:40

1:20:46
yes well right here around old faithful it was still v beautiful and nice you could see the smoke in the distance but it hadn't gotten that close and I am just quite amazed at how much of the park has burned.

1:21:07 ac
How does that make you feel about the park?

1:21:12
well I'm sorry that they let it go for so long and didn't try and control it sooner and you know there's a lot of new little trees coming up but its going to be yrs and yrs before it was like it was before
1:21:25

from Denver, CO

ac
what does y mean to you?

1:21:34
well we came through here when I was a child be my grandparent live in mt aso it has a lot of neat memories many a lot of memories, bears coming to car and old faithful, ... really dismayed about how it looks right now.
1:22:00

Fathers and sons (n v interesting)

Final int.
1:22:31
we were here six yrs ago so not long after the fire and we had a wonderful tour guide that exp to us that fire is not necc a bad thing you know that the forest is supposed to burn on a two hundred to six hundred yr cycle and that's the way that nature designed it and its only our intervention that messes that up and that seems pretty much okay I mean the burned out stuff is as interesting to look at as the green stuff so act its pretty awesome .. .if that's what nature does that's what nature does
