Yellowstone National Park experienced its second busiest May on record, according to the National Park Service.
The busy month of visitors comes as the park faces $2 million in funding cuts through the White House’s proposed budget.
The park hosted close to 420,000 visitors in May, which is down 5.6% from May of 2016.
The number of visitors so far this year is down 7.3% from this time last year, with about 550,400 visitors over the past six months.
According to the NPS, the number of visitors in 2017 is up 28.7% from 2013.
Glacier National Park stands to lose $1 million from its budget if Congress approves President Trump’s new spending plan.
