Now that we've retired from "real" jobs, we thought it would be a lark to take a temporary job in a campground at Yellowstone National Park for the end of the 2003 summer season.  We filed an application with Xanterra Corporation, the concessionaire that runs the larger Yellowstone campgrounds for the National Park Service, and we were pleased to be accepted.

We headed west from our home in Midland, MI on Aug  2.  The pages that follow contain a photographic record of our trip, for the benefit of friends, family, and anybody else that stumbles in here.

We've also posted the full text journal from this trip, but unless you're REALLY interested in our daily events, I'd recommend just viewing the photo gallery.
