"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

The Store is Open

The store opened today at 1:00. I was assigned to be a cashier today. The cash register is rather intimidating at first but I'm getting a grasp at it. I loved it and had a great time visiting with the guests. The hot water wasn't working yet again today so the Fountain was unable to open. The store hours now are 9 - 6 and will eventually be 7:30 - 9:00 and I will be working split shifts. I have every Monday and Tuesday off.

Tonight is a more relaxing evening. A couple of us decided to stay in and watch the Survivor finale even though we heard of a 'fresh kill' by Madison.

Yellowstone Glossary:

Savage: a Yellowstone employee
fresh kill: a recently killed animal (usually an elk or deer). The carcass will attract bears or wolves. Knowing where fresh kills are helps with wildlife viewing.
