The president, his wife and two children will hit Bozeman on Aug. 14 and then Yellowstone National Park on Aug. 15 before spending the night at Grand Junction, Col. It will be the first presidential visit to Yellowstone since President Bill Clinton descended near the Northeast Entrance to announce a mining settlement.
Obama has visited Yellowstone before, according to spokesperson Robert Gibbs: “I know he’s been to Yellowstone, because he tells a story of coming to visit his grandparents that I believe includes both stops at Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon, coming from Hawaii.”
After his westward trip the First Family will spend the rest of an August vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.
