"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

Andrea and Bridge Bay

It is time for all to know that Andrea has been promoted to management!!  She will be the new manager at Bridge Bay General Store this coming summer.  She started out with YGS as my Floor Supervisor at the Adventure Store during the summer of 2010 then headed up to Mammoth with me to work the winter here.   I'm going to miss her not being at the Adventure Store this summer but when great opportunities arise one must grab them with both hands.  Congratulations Andrea!!

This morning photographer Tom Murphy stopped in to drop off some of his books.  He is the author of numerous photography books on Yellowstone as well as DVD's.  He has had numerous PBS shows about Yellowstone as well.  I have met him a couple times before but this was the one time I was able to get my camera and pose with him for a picture.  He is a very talented man and his photographs are spectacular.  He gives photography courses through the Yellowstone Institute and people flock to get photography tips from him.
