#YellowstoneJobs Instagram Contest Winners

In June 2018 we re-launched our @yellowstonejobs Instagram page. The goal was to share posts from our team members. After all, they are the ones who are out living, working, and exploring in this 2.2 million acre wonderland. Working on the job, relaxing in the dorm, playing a game of softball, taking a trip to a gateway community, exploring the park…and more! The content we share is a glimpse into life in Yellowstone National Park. Each month in 2018 we recognized one employee for using the hashtag #yellowstonejobs. These are employees whose photos (and captions) best captured the Naturally Different employment experience at Yellowstone. Check out our winners!

The inaugural winner in June was Drahomira Gurkova. She took this photo at Grand Prismatic Spring and captioned it “With my Thai friends.” When you work in Yellowstone, you get to meet people from all around the world. These international workers don’t typically have cars so they rely on the friends they make to get out and explore the park.



Macy Booker won the July contest. Her caption was “We have our mascot here, our very own Carl the bison is ready for the dorm life. He has even picked out his hammock for the season.” Carl was a frequent visitor in the Canyon dorm area and we saw him on Instagram several times over the summer. One of the many perks of working in Yellowstone is living among the wildlife. Bison and elk are found throughout the park, even in our employee dorm areas. Oftentimes a great picture is waiting just outside your dorm window!


We often like to say that we get paid in sunshine and rainbows in Yellowstone. In August, Katelyn Shull depicted that sentiment perfectly with both her picture and her caption: “Our jobs’ not always sunshine and rainbows….but most of the time, it is.” Working hard is something we pride ourselves on. We know that team members will have tough days but it’s moments like Katelyn captured that make it all worth it.

Michaela Jones nabbed the top prize in September. Team members who stay through the fall are excited by the changing seasons. When the summer starts to slip and fall takes hold, it’s one of the most amazing times to work in Yellowstone. The air is crisp, the leaves are changing, the animals are more visible…and the snow starts to fly! We loved this joyful celebration of the second snow of the season at Canyon.
