An American Eagle regional jet originating from Dallas landed safely at Yampa Valley Regional Airport after declaring an emergency Thursday.

There were 58 passengers on the plane, and Morgan said they all got very quiet after the announcement was made. Everyone applauded when the plane landed safely.

Terry Tempest Williams explores Americans&#39; bond with their national parks 30.7.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Terry Tempest Williams tells the best story about a wolf kill you are ever likely to hear, acknowledging its savagery, and at the same time, finding spiritual meaning in the death of a bison cow. But that’s what one would expect from an award-winning author who manages the tricky feat of melding environmental activism with poetic phrases. The author and editor of many books about Americans' relationships with wild places, Williams spoke to a packed house at the Bud Werner Memorial Library in Steamboat Springs July 28 in support of her newest book, “The Hour of Land: a Personal Topography of America’s National Parks.” Tempest Williams contemplated the past and future of the National Park Service and the grand landscapes it is entrusted with, describing them as "breathing spaces" for our society and the “closest thing we have to sacred lands.” She described how generations of her family have visited Grand Teton National Park annually and have regarded it as a place where memories were formed.
