Share your Outdoors with Others!

Experiosity Message for the Week of 9/19:  
Hello all Experiosity Visitors and Members!
Amazing Animals are right outside our door right here in Gardiner.  This is “Rut” season for the Elk and excitement is being shared by all the visitors and employees as the masterful Elk bull tends to his herd of females…protecting them from other Elk bulls who might just steal away his special harem.   He can be found chasing cars and trucks as well.  Seeing himself as a reflections tends to mean there is another bull attempting to encroach on his territory.  Wow!  Just heard that 2 cars have dings and I am sure there is more to come.  Last year was my 1st year to experience this and my eyes were wide open to the excitement.
So our message this week is to “Share your passion for “Going Ourdoors” with friends.  Send a postcard or web link with photos to those who live in other parts of our world and let them know what is happening in your neigborhood.  Yellowstone “Rut” exctiement is a good example.  What an exciting Experiosity Moment for both of you.  It will surely bring a smile to their face and in the case of Yellowstone…wow!   Many people like myself have never experienced such an event.  Seeing people come from all over just at this time of year tells you that this is an event to be shared.
