Inspiration Point Closure

From Yellowstone National Park Facebook page:

Safety concerns prompt temporary Canyon viewpoint closure

Concerns over visitor safety have prompted officials at Yellowstone National Park to temporarily close a popular viewpoint. Inspiration Point is one many popular spots along the North Rim of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone from which visitors may view the Lower Falls. The last two tiers of concrete stairs leading to the viewing platform and the platform itself have deteriorated over time. Due to concerns of visitor safety, the lower section of steps and the viewing platform are temporarily closed. Park staff members are assessing the damage and determining how to move forward with repair or replacement of the failed stairway and platform. It is not yet known when the area may reopen to visitors. See more photos on the park's Flickr site at http://www.flickr.com/photos/yellowstonenps
