"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 #5

Leapin' Lee


Meet Lee, our vivacious Associate from California who now resides in Missoula (when not living in Yellowstone). Lee is a Certified Ophthalmic Technician who has traded careers for the fun and rewarding job as an Associate at the Adventure Store. She has wowed everyone with her outgoing personality and her determination to make every guest feel welcomed in the store. When not greeting our guests she is out hiking the trails with her bear spray (which she had her hand on when coming within 30 feet of a grizzly by the cabins earlier this spring) or just taking a leisurely drive looking for wildlife. Lee says that she "absolutely loves being in Yellowstone Park" and I say we "absolutely love having you here!"
