You are in the southern part of Montana, three days' journey from either St. Paul, Minnesota, or Seattle Washington, by the Northern Pacific R. R. This railroad track is a spur from Livingston, Montana, 54 miles away, and the train, connecting there with through trains on the main line, has just made its two-and-a-half hour run bringing tourists here for a trip through the Park. On the return to Livingston it will run around a loop at your right between here and the bank of the Yellowstone River, the track recurving on itself a few rods below the station. The Park gateway is only a few rods away at your left, beyond the station. Gardiner is a small town (500 population), its chief buildings grouped behind you above the river. it is a supply centre for miners, hunters, fishermen and campers over a considerable section of the surrounding country. Hunters cannot pursue their sport inside the Park limits -the regulations are strict and the Park patrols keep a sharp watch for poachers on the Government preserves; fishermen may exercise their skill as much as they please provided the fish are taken only by the usual legitimate rod and line and none are sold for profit.
