A:

Go to Glacier instead. Ha! Just a little national park humor, there, Mark. In 2011, more than 3.6 million people visited Yellowstone National Park, a quarter of them (roughly 906,000) came in the month of July. So while summer isn’t exactly the low season, there are many ways to enjoy the 3,400-square-mile park without having to fight the crowds.
