On the day the above photo was taken, a man who played an important role in Madison Junction as a law enforcement Park Ranger for Yellowstone National Park passed away. He was a man who loved the park, spending a large part of his life not only working in it, but permanently living in it. He loved the wildlife, and he loved the elk, and he loved our research, always going out of his way to help us out in any way he could. From the elk project's perspective, he was an essential part of our lives in Madison Junction. We have so many stories about Gary, and appreciate him so much. Thanks Gary. Madison will never be the same, and the elk project will never forget you and your graciousness.
