For the Benefit and Enjoyment of the People

For the Benefit and Enjoyment of the People

We decided to drive up to the famous arch at the north-western entrance to Yellowstone National Park one day. This was the first and official entrance to the park when it was first opened. Above the arch appear the words “for the benefit and enjoyment of the people.” Above the left service door reads “Yellowstone National Park,” and above the right door reads “created by act of Congress Mark 1, 1872.”

Of course, here we are standing in front of it. This is in Montana, so that’s another state we can cross off the “to visit” list, I guess.
