A post to the NWCN Facebook page shares how the U.S. government shutdown is affecting a couple from Germany. Katie McClure posted video of the couple visiting Yellowstone National Park. 

According to you the YouTube description: 

"October 2, 2013. These guests from Germany had never been out of Western Europe. This trip to Yellowstone was a dream for them, and the man celebrated his 70th birthday here in the recently closed park. Tonight was their last night at Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel; they must exit the park immediately in the morning -- no more visitors can be in the park tomorrow. They danced to several songs tonight. They gave me permission to post this video. Only a couple people were hanging out in the Map Room and I think less than 10 rooms in the hotel were occupied. It was a sad but inspiring final night at work."
