Yellowstone Then and Now

Our nation’s first national park was still young when lecturer John L. Stoddard visited Yellowstone in the 1890’s.  We review the history and development of the Park, comparing Mr. Stoddard’s stories and photographs with stories and photographs from visits a century later.  See pictures of geysers, waterfalls, mud pots, and canyons, and buffalo, grizzlies, beavers, and wolves.  Hear how Jim Bridger, the old mountain man, was laughed to scorn when he told of seeing glass mountains, petrified forests, and boiling lakes, even though, for once, he was telling the truth!
