A photographic tour of Yellowstone with historian Aubrey Haines

Billings Gazette

Aubrey Haines was Yellowstone National Park’s first historian and authored several books, including the two-volume set “The Yellowstone Story: A History of Our First National Park.”

Before Haines’ death in 2000, Bob Richard had the opportunity to take a trip through Yellowstone with Haines. On June 9 at noon in the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s Coe Auditorium, Richard will share stories and his photographs of the journey.

The presentation — “A Photographic Tour with Aubrey Haines” — is free. Joining Richard is guest speaker John Lounsbury, who was a district ranger and the organizer of the trip that also included members of the National Park Service, park concessionaires and the then-CEO of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, Byron Price. The tour turned out to be Haines last visit to the park.

A lifelong Wyoming resident, Richard has worked at guest ranches, guided horse and hunting trips, ranched, and for 37 years owned and operated Grub Steak Expeditions.
