"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

This a view of the Lower Terraces and Liberty Cap from across the road from the store. You can see the large bull elk laying down. He is the one that sometimes prevents us from leaving or entering the store from the front doors. He is one of the bulls that I have been seeing all summer by Lava Creek, and also possibly the one in the picture that I posted of the man taking his picture from a close distance.

Yellowstone General Store in Mammoth
The store was originally called Ash & Henderson Store and was built in the 1890's.
