Gardiner - The Town Café
There is perhaps no single establishment in Gardiner, Montana, that speaks more to the authentic charm of our small gateway community than The Town Café. In this way, we come across how competent urbanism, in collaboration with a business point, contributes to the development of social relations, order essay at to delve deeper into this topic. If an authentic Gardiner experience is important to you when passing through on your way to Mammoth Hot Springs or the Lamar Valley, then a stop at The Town Café for a hearty Montana breakfast is a must. Whether it be their mammoth breakfasts, burgers cooked to perfection, or perhaps a finer dining experience upstairs at the Town Loft, where cedar plank salmon and a juicy piece of prime rib await, everyone can find something that speaks to their appetite at the Town.

But the food isn’t what makes The Town Café so special, much like most small towns across the Montana, Wyoming, Idaho region, it is the people that make The Town. Owner and friend of YCG, Wade Laubach, is as salt of the earth as anyone you are likely to meet and has put together a dedicated staff waiting to serve you. If you make it to The Town, make sure to say hello to Wade, tell him we sent you and I guarantee you will be greeted with a warm smile, a strong handshake, a good story and a few jokes to keep you moving on your journey through the park.


Livingston - Timber Trails
Located on Park Street, the main drag running into downtown Livingston, please check out my all-time favorite outdoor store. Timber Trails is like no other gear shop I have ever visited, and being a gearhead I have explored countless such enterprises. From the first time I walked into this warm and quaint shop, I knew I had found my gear source for outdoor adventure. Unlike other outdoor stores where "sizing up" has become the norm, you will never have an uncomfortable moment at Timber Trails. In fact it is quite the opposite. The charm and appeal of this shop runs so deep that you will find yourself stopping by just to say hello. After experiencing Timber Trails you may feel like you are cheating on your spouse when you venture into other gear stores in search of outdoor apparatus. Whether it be backpacking, mountain biking, skiing, climbing, or just looking the part, Timber Trails has what you need and more, and if they don't have what you are looking for, they will order it. Add to this the fact that this establishment is owned by one of the all time "best" guys you will ever meet—Livingston native Dale Sexton—with a knowledgeable, friendly and helpful staff and you will see what the Timber Trails buzz is all about. Thank you Timber Trails for all of your support!


Livingston - Bunkers Design
Just take a look at our website and you will understand why we rave about Brad Bunkers and Engine 8. After extensive shopping around to find someone to help YCG create a brand identity, back in 2008, that would be consistent through all of our materials (brochures, case statement, website, blogs, stationary and more), we put our faith in Engine 8 and Brad Bunkers. Knowing you only get one chance to make a first impression, this was perhaps the biggest and most important decision we made in the first two years of Yellowstone Country Guardian's existence. Brad helped us develop exactly what we were looking for and has given YCG a very professional and distinguished look. There must be something in the water flowing through Livingston because Brad Bunkers is another one of the "great ones" and is a true gem in what can be a difficult field to navigate. Since starting YCG, Engine 8 has helped us take our work to another level. Just this year Engine 8 designed our first annual report, our "Off The Hook" River Guardian Fly Fishing School 2011 tee's and our RGFFS marketing piece, which caught the eye of fly shops, donors and students from across the region. Engine 8 has clients from all over the globe, so if you are a budding entrepreneur looking for someone to help you launch your new enterprise or are simply looking for a fresh look, then give "the Mayor" a call and you will be thankful you did. Our work would not be possible and we certainly wouldn't be where we are today without Brad Bunkers. (406)222-7566

Gardiner - Tumbleweed Bookstore Café
Located on the main drag on Scott Street (highway 89) beside the Flying Pig Raft Store you will find the Tumbleweed Bookstore and Café.

Whether it is one of their legendary breakfast sandwiches, their smashed lunched paninis, or any of their delectable beverages?such as tea, specialty coffees, or smoothies?this down to earth, small town do?everything bookstore will leave a lasting impression. Add to all of this their natural ingredients, book club, and Anna’s flair for bringing bands to Gardiner to raise money for local non-profits, and we could not recommend a stop at the Tumbleweed highly enough!
