There’s no shortage of things to do outside in Yellowstone National Park! But if you’re looking for some indoor activities, we’re proud to feature a number of local artists, tasting events, and book signings this winter. We invite you to learn more and join us for a special day in the world’s first national park!
Farmstead Cider is hard cider hand-made in Jackson Hole from local Wyoming and Rocky Mountain apples. They started out on a mission to keep bears out of trouble and ended up starting a cidery! The ancient glacial soils, extreme sun, and cool nights all combine to make Wyoming a fantastic place to grow, harvest, and taste unique cider apple varieties. They are rediscovering forgotten hundred-year-old apple trees, planting new orchards in places where growing apples was thought to be impossible, and teaching people about high altitude farming along the way. Stop by the Mammoth Hotel to taste one of their fantastic dry hard ciders December 17-19.
Jeff is an author and photographer of 15 different books on Yellowstone National Park. He has lived in the park since 1977, working at a wide variety of jobs including fishing guide, tour guide, winterkeeper, park ranger, wildlife researcher, park resource manager, and many others. Everything about Yellowstone inspires him- its geothermal wonders, its geology, its botanical communities, its waters, its scenery, its history, just everything. Most of all, however, it is the park’s wildlife and its natural state that appeal to me – Yellowstone is the largest essentially intact ecosystem left in the temperate portions of the earth. Stop by to meet Jeff at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge December 18-20!
Contemporary Native American Artist DG House of Bozeman, MT has had her work exhibited in the fine art museums across the country and in permanent collections worldwide including rock stars and the Smithsonian Institute’s Museum of the American Indian.
“Yellowstone completely inspires everything I do, including moving halfway across the country to be there. Yellowstone is the essence of everything I do. Every painting I create is based on a story, a real story that happened in Yellowstone Park at some point.” Stop by to meet and learn more about DG at the Mammoth Hotel January 25-27!
Gavin McClure was raised in Yellowstone National Park as park brat. He is a self-taught artist drawing on inspiration from the alternative art scene while living in LA and New York as well as his interest in Chinese philosophy and medicine. His work has been exhibited at the Lan Su Chinese Gardens in Portland as well as showings in LA and New York. I was fortunate enough to call Yellowstone home for most of my life. Most of my memories of childhood revolve around the park…it’s landscape and wildlife are an integral part of who I am. Whenever I return to park I am filled with the warmth of coming home. And even as the park and the surrounding area changes there is a constant in the natural processes that unfold here.” Stop by the Mammoth Hotel January 29-30 to meet Gavin!
