Yellowstone National Park saw its visitation numbers increase more than 7 percent for June, compared with a year ago.

In addition, visitation to the first national park exceeded the 1 million mark for the first six months of 2014.

The National Park Service recorded more than 669,642 recreational visits to Yellowstone in June.

That compares with about 624,400 recreational visits in June 2013.

Driving the increase were bus passengers. June bus passenger numbers were up almost 25 percent at the North entrance, nearly 34 percent at the West Entrance, and up almost 39 percent at the South entrance compared with June 2013.

July is typically the park’s peak visitation month, followed in order by August, June, September and May.
