I am working for the first time inside Yellowstone National Park at Mammoth Hot Springs. I was wondering what is the town of Gardiner Like. I know I will spend some time at Food Farm and Subway store from time to time driving six miles into town. I am working April 25 to October 10. Long contract. I am from the eastern states of North Carolina.

High altitude, lots of space, lots of dangerous wild animals you may not be familier with. Pay attention to the park rules and training about wild animals. People get killed every year, mostly from doing dumb things that could have been avoided.

Fantastic views, sunrises and sunsets that are breathtaking, lightning storms and summer squalls that can shock you with their sudden violence, then they are gone.

It can snow just about any time too.

Gardiner is a tourist trap and a long place from anywhere else you can get supplies so it is priced accordingly, (very high ).

You will really enjoy the stark contrasts with the Eastern US, it is a very different place from what you may be familier with.

At the top of this page it says "City-Data.com". It is a hot link to another part of city data. When you click on it it will take you to a page showing a map of the U.S. Scroll down a bit and you will see a list of all the states. Click on Montana. Now you will see a list of towns and their populations. When you select a town it will give you all kinds of demographics about that town. Lots of information.

I don't know exactly how many people there are that live there year round, but probably less than 1000 in town and the surrounding area. Most work for the park or the state, (fish and game, Dept. of Transportation), are hunting/fishing hiking/nature guides, or work in one of the tourist service stores.
The church universal and triumphant has their headquarters at Corwin, (that is a whole story in itself ), but the actual resident population is pretty small.

Not a lot of industry there or major employers except for the park. There used to be a gold mine at Jardine just outside of Gardiner, but that closed several years ago.

North of Gardiner towards Livingston is mostly cattle ranching or guide services. There the small town of Emigrant that has a bar, restaraunt and gas station, and Chico Hot Springs on the east side of the river, but not much else.

Not a real thriving metropolis, no clubs, no movie theaters, cell reception can be spotty, it is a pretty isolated place except for the hundreds and thousands of tourists that pass through each year.

If it wasn't for the park, there would probably be a population of less than 50 permanent residents since the mines closed.

You are a long ways from anywhere when you are in Gardiner
