“Take the Yellowstone Pledge” to help keep you and the park safe!

“For the benefit and the enjoyment of the people.” President Theodore Roosevelt

Every time I visit Yellowstone National Park I always stop at the North Entrance just to take a few minutes and read this quote on Roosevelt’s Arch.  Yellowstone holds a special place in my heart.  It has been a destination for my father and I for over 30 years.  I first visited the park when I was 12.  I took my oldest son for his 5th birthday over 15 years ago.  And last year  I took both of my boys on the way to drop my oldest off for his freshman year of college.  The park has changed so much in the past 30 years.

The one constant over those 30 years, people do not always make the smartest choices in Yellowstone.  I can attest because I have seen some sights over my years of visiting our nation’s oldest national park.  Cell phones and social media have now created a whole new opportunity for disaster in Yellowstone!   “Take the Yellowstone Pledge” has been created to help keep park goers safe as well as protect the park and its inhabitants.  Admire the animals from a safe distance.  Yellowstone is not a zoo.  The animals are wild and will protect and defend!
