West yellowstone, Montana / MMI II (Very weak shaking): Yellowstone Under Canvas outdoor tents. Had just fallen asleep and my husband woke me up saying he thought it was an earthquake. Bed (fancy camping w tipis, beds, chairs etc) was shaking. Our three kids stayed asleep and were disappointed in the morning they had missed it. Short duration.
