Roosevelt Arch

Enter Here for Adventure
If you’re heading to Yellowstone National Park via Gardiner, Montana, the first monument likely to catch your attention isn’t a mountain or a lake or a bear (OK, it may be a bear – be careful): it is the stunning Roosevelt Arch, set in stone back in 1903 “For the Benefit and Enjoyment of the People."

I feel as though the arch signals the start of a grand adventure each time I pass underneath, and calls to mind all of those adventurers and thrill seekers who have come before me. The next time you roll through, stop for a moment to imagine what it was like to explore Yellowstone during the early 20th Century – on horse-drawn carriage, on horseback, or on foot – and think what that would have meant for your own adventure.
