This painting represents the good old days in Yellowstone Park before runaway litigation and bureaucratic red tape. The National Park Service took over park management in 1916 and the U.S. Calvary shipped out to fight World War 1. This was a time when a vacation was truly an adventure. The only way to tour the park was if you were a "sagebrusher" and camped with your own outfit or elected to see the sights by joining a party of tourists camping with the Shaw & Powell Outfit. Their tourists were picked up at the railhead in Livingston or West Yellowstone, Montana and they then proceeded into the park in stagecoach caravans. Tent camps were located at scenic areas in Yellowstone and good food, lodging and entertainment were offered by the Shaw & Powell crews.
This painting shows a tourists coach following an elk migration as both the elk and the tourists leave before the real winter sets in...
