About the tour

Join Ashea for a meander along the boundary line of her home town of Gardiner, MT and Yellowstone National Park, exploring early park and surrounding area history. Learn about changes in park management over the years, discover why a massive arch stands over the world's first national park's entrance, scout for wildlife in premier habitat, and enjoy the mountain views. We will not see any thermal features on this tour...but we might see wildlife!

Meet your local guide


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. 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. Immersing in Yellowstone and the surrounding public lands with their daughter on skis and foot is where they find nourishment. She is excited to share her home landscape with the world in this unique way!

Ashea has been guiding since Sep 1998

A lovely walk to the Roosevelt Arch, on the anniversary of the keystone being laid. We learned the history of the oldest national park in the world with some beautiful quotes given by Ashea's daughter, Aria. With stunning stark scenery. Wonderful. A tour with Ashea gives you the appetite to see more of this wondrous place.

The tours around Yellowstone with Ashea are always interesting and informative. She is a friendly and knowledgeable guide. Add ‘guide in training’, 😀 Aria, and you have the perfect mix for an enjoyable tour.
