"There is nothing so American as our national parks. The scenery and wildlife are native. The fundamental idea behind the parks is native. It is, in brief, that the country belongs to the people, that it is in process of making for the enrichment of the lives of all of us. The parks stand as the outward symbol of this great human principle." Franklin D. Roosevelt

It's a coyote.....or is it a wolf?

Last night at 11:30 there was quite a racket outside the dorms. Lot's of yipping and howling. Some of us thought it was a coyote while some thought it was a wolf. We decided to say it was a wolf, much more exciting.

How does an employee get fired from YNP? The fastest way is to relieve yourself into Old Faithful. Yup, a couple knuckleheads decided to do just that the other night. They got caught because of the webcam that films Old Faithful. I'm sure their release from employment is accompanied by a nice hefty federal fine.

The boiler for the store has been broken so there has been no hot water in the store. They shut off all the water yesterday. This is a problem especially for the Fountain (food service area). Without water they won't be able to open tomorrow. Thank goodness the dorms have hot water.
