Greetings from Yellowstone National Park

Lived and Worked at lake Yellowstone in my early 20s and it had a profound effect on my life and made me who I am today. I’m from Wyoming originally and was born in Sundance near Bear Lodge, or what some people refer to Devils Tower. I feel very passionate about our lands and their preservation. I honor the Native Americans who have protected these lands and continue to fight against those who have taken what’s not theirs! I have lived the American lie and the only truth that is real is the land and the people who love and protect it!!!!

Blessings to lands of Wyoming and the earth our home.

May we all learn to live in respect and harmony, as the Native Americans did.

Sincerely,
Natalie

Yellowstone National Park

America's first national park is named after the river that runs through it. Within the park's massive boundaries, visitors can find mountains, rivers, lakes, waterfalls and some of the most concentrated geothermal activity in the world. The park has 60% of the world’s geysers, as well as hot springs and mud pots. It is also home to diverse wildlife with the largest concentration of mammals in the Lower 48 states, including grizzly bears, wolves, bison and elk.

State(s): Idaho Montana, Wyoming,

Established: 1872

“The earth is being devastated by the hands of greed and corporate interests. We as people have the responsibility to save and protect our planet. That is our duty, and purpose here on earth, not to destroy and kill the home, in which we live and love. ”
