USA: How to Fluster and get a Blush out of a Yellowstone Park Ranger

It was early morning and the American flag was being hoisted over the Park Ranger Museum in Yellowstone Park, below the log cabin a lone bison grazed on the grassy plain about 100 yards away. On entering we were greeted by Joan Meyer a Park Ranger who had retired but now volunteered to meet stragglers like us on the Yellowstone’s figure of eight circuit. When she lent me her ranger hat to wear I snuck a quick kiss and hey presto! This wonderful museum is well worth visiting to learn about the historical content associated with the National Park Service. It is housed in an old patrol station, known as Norris Soldier Station built in 1908. It was named after Philetus W. Norris, a colourful former frontiersman and superintendent of Yellowstone.  For more information on Yellowstone NP go to: www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit or www.wyomingtourism.org
