"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

Slow but Surely

With my time at work and the dark coming quicker in the evenings I haven't had much time to go and see the sights. It has been snowy/rainy/windy lately and the elk herd that is usually in Mammoth are hiding in the hills during the day. I see them on occassion as I come into work and they usually make their appearance in Mammoth after dark.

The store has been a bit slow lately but that is to be expected. The Mammoth Hotel is closed until the week of Christmas so there are not as many people staying in the Park. There are the few that come to spend the day here so most of our guests in the store work in the Park. We are getting ready to open the fountain area of the store in a week. Right now we only serve coffee, caps, and hot chocolate but we will be opening it up for hamburgers, hot dogs, paninis and the ever beloved Taco Tuesdays!! I can't wait.
