Did you know Yellowstone cares for and works 100 head of stock? During the summer and fall, they travel throughout the park to support backcountry logistical needs, mostly for our trail crews and backcountry rangers. With some animals traveling over 1,000 miles in a season, the corrals typically go through 1,300 horse shoes and 10,400 shoeing nails each season. Employees like Dustin also provide packing support for other backcountry projects completed by the radio shop, science crews, and craft shops, to name a few.
