Megan Wenk had planned her wedding for this month at beautiful Artist Point overlooking the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River in Yellowstone Park. The rehearsal dinner was to be at Mammoth Hotel.

With the national parks all closed, she has had to change the venues where her guests from far and wide will stay and be entertained to sites north of the park.

Who is Megan Wenk? The daughter of Yellowstone National Park Superintendent Dan Wenk, who said, “It wasn’t appropriate for us to do it in the park. We’re no different from anybody else.”
