Sneak Peek


Up And Running
nice job folks
.. The expansion of the Yellowstone National Park website continues with the compilation of the "Old Faithful Virtual Visitor Center." This is a work in progress sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the Yellowstone Park Foundation.
.. The linked pages of the center are attractive and surprisingly easy to navigate, (a welcome switch from most of the rest of the consolidated parks sites.)
.. Enter the OFVVC through the Lobby and explore the exhibits, maps and multimedia.
.. Use the text link at the bottom of the page to send your comments, requests, and reviews to the team that is developing this portion of Yellowstone's Website.
.. The floor plan of the virtual site is a sneak peek of the coming actual VC. The Multimedia Center features a compilation of much of the media scattered throughout the parent site and is an informational and educational gold mine.
.. The new media presentations are wonderfully simple and informative. High speed connections are recommended - and well worth the look. this page alone is worth a bookmark to watch developments.
.. In the morass of consolidation that the NPS has undertaken with their websites this segment stands out as a shinning example of what can be done. It's a really good show!
.. We hope that the OFVC lives up to the standard set by the OFVVC.
