BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) Yellowstone National Park has recorded its busiest August, in part because of the solar eclipse.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports https://goo.gl/AN4zUt that Yellowstone tallied 916,166 visits last month, marking the first time the month surpassed 900,000 visits in the park's history. That's a 9 percent increase over the total in August 2016.

Park officials say the eclipse brought more visitors, especially in the days before and after. A glut of people passed through on Aug. 22, the day after the eclipse.

Yellowstone has counted 3,232,708 visits this year, lagging behind the record-breaking 2016 by about 36,000.
