The United States federal government shut down on Oct. 1, because the House and the Senate were unable to agree on a continuing resolution to keep the government funded. The government shutdown is having some local impact here in the Yampa Valley. For example, the Bureau of Land Management and Dinosaur Monument essentially have closed down. In addition, the U.S. Forest Service is closed including the Hahn's Peak Bears Ears Ranger District Office in Steamboat Springs and the Yampa Ranger District in Yampa.
