Yellowstone National Park has been closed to all visitors since March 24th, but it’ll take more than a global pandemic and national crisis to end the long-standing tradition of tourists doing stupid shit around thermal features.

Officials haven’t released further information on the woman or the extent of her injuries.

Women in the Mountains: How Burton Snowboarder Kimmy Fasani is Rebounding from Breast Cancer

Last November, Burton snowboarder Kimmy Fasani was breastfeeding her second son when she noticed a pea-sized lump in her armpit. “Oh shit,” she thought. Both of Fasani’s parents had died of cancer and she’d set up her lifestyle to avoid any possibility of getting it herself. But, a day after finding the lump, she sat in her doctor’s office and listened to them clinically diagnose her with breast cancer. “Within three days, everything was flipped upside,” she says.
