Take a wander though Fort Yellowstone, built when the US Army was administering the world’s first National Park, while we explore both ancient and modern human stories of Yellowstone. Though Yellowstone was set aside for it’s geologic wonders, the world’s first National Park is steeped in human history. From earliest hunters leaving evidence of their passing close to 11,000 years ago, to modern Native people who still have a deep connection with this landscape, to the army and eventually the National Park Service, and for the visitors from around the world who pass through today, Yellowstone is not just a natural park, but a cultural one as well. We will likely not see thermal features on this walk, but will focus on the human history of Yellowstone.
Ashea has spent twenty-five years exploring and sharing the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, helping people connect to a wild landscape and to themselves. She has led all ages and interests through Yellowstone including children’s programming, driving snow coaches, skiing and hiking deep into the backcountry, geyser gazing and road-based wildlife watching. In the fall of 2020, she added virtual touring to her array of guiding options and has thoroughly enjoyed sharing Yellowstone in this unique and meaningful way. She lives 100 yards from Yellowstone National Park’s boundary with her ecologist husband, where they own an ecological consulting business and small educational guiding company (https://www.yellowstone.education). Immersing in Yellowstone and the surrounding public lands with their daughter on skis and foot is where they find nourishment.

Ashea presented her tour of Fort Yellowstone with much enthusiasm and emphasis on keeping & respecting the national park. Learn something new on her tours; even on the ones I had previously gone on. She is clear in her presentations and knowledgeable at the questions being asked. Always presented the tour with a smile on her face, especially during a snow storm- what a trooper. <3
