"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 #9


Who do I call when something needs repair? That would be our miracle worker Mark. Mark is a former machinist or 'turbine jockey' which is someone who worked on wind turbines. This is his first time working in Yellowstone and is not even close to becoming accustomed to the 'winter in June' temps. He came to Yellowstone with his wife and son, who work in Canyon General, and his daughter who works at Fishing Bridge. Though I have to share his mechanical expertise with Canyon General I can always count on him to give a hand. And because of Mark I now how to correctly store an extension cord without it getting tangled. Thanks Mark for all the help!
