Random Roadside

As a summer seasonal park ranger in Yellowstone, I get asked a lot of questions, such as Where is the best place to take pictures? 

My answer?

Pretty much anywhere you look.

Bicycling in Grand Teton National Park

Have you ever felt like going for a bicycle ride on a paved mountain path? I know just how you feel.

Walking the Hard Road to Travel

Just up the road a piece from Grant Village, along the shores of the West Thumb of Yellowstone Lake, there lies a gravel bar that is perhaps a mile or so long. When folks these days learn that its name is the “Hard Road to Travel,” they often wonder if it had been constructed as a road. They inquire, Who would build a road out there in the lake? Why would anyone do that?
