The government default appears to be resolved and the Buffalo National River should re-open within days.
I don't have any more details at this point, but it is clear the political deal has been struck and should pass today barring any last minute disruption.
There was some concern yesterday that passage of the continuing resolution and extension of the debt ceiling would be blocked by parliamentary maneuvers in congress. Clearer minds prevailed and the crisis appears to be averted.
How this translates specifically to our Buffalo National River re-opening I don't know. The NPS website, nps.gov, is closed due to the shut down. I don't think it will take very long to get things underway -- hopefully by the weekend.
Details to follow as more information is available.
