Nice collection of views of Yellowstone that follow the tourist route through the Park, beginning at the Northern Pacific depot in Gardiner, and then south through the Gate and onto Mammoth into the interior of the Park. "The Yellowstone Park trip via Gardiner gives the maximum of time at all points of interest. More than that: it is scheduled to bring the Tourist to each point at a convenient hour when the time of day will permit of a full and satisfactory inspection of the formations; it also allows a full-day at Mammoth Hot Springs, at the Upper Basin (Old Faithful Inn), and at the Grand Canyon (new Canyon Hotel). It affords ample time for rest, for meals, for social enjoyment at each of the hotels and lunching stations, and gives opportunity for fishing and for side trips to many interesting points." - from a contemporary Northern Pacific guide. The first view has a small chip at the right edge else a very good set housed in the original lightly rubbed clamshell case.
