Hi Mary!
This is your yellowstone roommate here! One of the best things was becoming friends with you and the people in our training class. I miss everyone!

No, I worked at Mt. Rainier. I'll be in the training class at Mammoth starting May 13. I'll be there for two weeks.

Hi Mary, are you working Grant Village this summer as front desk? I am too.

Both of you can contact me at and I'll answer your questions. Its a little easier. Thanks for replying.

Mary: Location Mgr is hotel manager except since everyone lives on property we supervise employees off duty as well. Very challenging especially with the college kids. Fire alarms, fights, drunkedness, etc in the middle of the night. Its all part of life in a national park. But makes life interesting. Now I work for the park service although miss some of the comaraderie of working at the hotels.

Mary: Lake is much nicer than Grant in my opinion. You will get plenty of opportunity to work with people, and after you've been there awhile if you want to change shifts you can approach your Mgr. They are usually open, and there will be people who don't show up or leave early, so flexibility is the key. I will be at the Bridge Bay Marina just down the road and living in NPS employee housing so I'm told. Contact me at and I will be glad to answer more questions about hikes, housing, etc.

Lake Baikal - that's fantastic.

I live and work out of Gardiner year round. I came out for a summer job in the park back in the 70's and liked it so much I found a way to stay.

Hi Mary,

My friend runs a nice motel called the Yellowstone River Motel. Betty has a soft spot for park employees

There are a couple of campgrounds in the area you might consider - one is in Yankee Jim Canyon, about 15 miles north of Gardiner on Highway 89. Another is the Eagle Creek Campground, a few miles from Gardiner on a gravel road that leads to Jardine.

Hi Mary ... thanks for the nice comment about my blogs from last summer. You will really enjoy Yellowstone .... it's a great place with lots of unique things to see. I will be spending the summer in Houston, and hope to be going to New Zealand to visit my son and his wife later this year (maybe November or December). I am hoping to work in Alaska next summer. Have fun in Yellowstone and let me know if you have any remaining questions about the place.

Mary, I did hike a lot last summer in Yellowstone and nearby. There are suitable trails for all abilities everywhere in the Park and plenty of people ready to hike with you. By the way, plan to buy a "bear spray" (about $40 in the General Stores), learn how it works, and do not ever hike alone. Then get out there and see everything you can!
