There are only two choices Auburn Airport & Blue Canyon Airport. Blue Canyon tends to work better for Foresthill's elevation.

During May 2013, the University of Utah located 170 earthquakes in the Yellowstone National Park region. The largest event, a minor earthquake with a magnitude of 3.0, occurred on May 7, 2013 at 07:22 AM MDT
about 14 km (~9 miles) southeast of West Yellowstone, MT. During the month of May 2013, Yellowstone earthquakes clustered in four distinct areas:
1) About 13 km (~8 miles) southwest of Grant Village, WY, where 20 earthquakes occurred on May 2 and 3, 2013, with the largest event reaching magnitude 1.9.
2) About 15 km (~9 miles) west-northwest of Old Faithful, WY, where 11 earthquakes occurred from May 3 – 5, 2013, with the largest event reaching magnitude 1.3.
3) About 14 km (~9 miles) southeast of West Yellowstone, MT, where 61 earthquakes occurred from May 6 – 12, 2013, including the largest event of the month, the magnitude 3.0 of May 7, 2013.
4) About 16 km (~10 miles) south-southeast of Lake Village, WY, where 7 earthquakes occurred from May 11 – 19, 2013, with the largest event reaching magnitude 2.2. On May 28, 2013, 10 more earthquakes occurred near this area, with largest of these reaching magnitudes 1.3.
Earthquake activity at Yellowstone remains at normal background levels.
Slow subsidence of the caldera, which began in early 2010, continues. Current deformation patterns at Yellowstone are well within historical norms.

The Yellowstone Volcano Observatory (YVO) provides long-term monitoring of volcanic and earthquake activity in the Yellowstone National Park region. Yellowstone is the site of the largest and most diverse collection of natural thermal features in the world and the first National Park. YVO is one of the five USGS Volcano Observatories that monitor volcanoes within the United States for science and public safety.
