"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

Meet An Adventure Store Employee #3

South Carolina

Meet Ken, the man with the quick smile and the contagious laugh. He has a striking resemblance to Theodore Roosevelt. In his previous life (what many Yellowstone concessionaires refer to their life before Yellowstone) Ken was a steel worker in Pennsylvania and a shrimper in South Carolina. Now he is in the Adventure Store working the register and being the resident fishing expert. When any of us, or our guests, have fishing questions it is Ken we turn to. His talents don't just stop there, it turned out that he is a whiz with the Fountain and is a hot dog server extraordinaire. Unfortunately for us Ken will be leaving the Adventure Store in two weeks and heading to the YGS at Grant Village. Don't forget your family at Canyon, Ken! Bully for you!
