About the Author


Traute Parrie is at her best in the high mountain habitat of pikas. She is prone to long walks, skis, or rides, with or without a particular destination, such as her recent hike through Yellowstone from Lamar Trailhead south to Jackson. She worked for the US Forest Service for over 31 years, most recently as the Beartooth District Ranger on the Custer Gallatin National Forest, out of Red Lodge. She retained her red-card qualification as a Firefighter throughout her entire career. Now you will find her volunteering on the fun stuff, like pounding nails on fire lookout restoration projects.
