Lee Ramella

Naturalist Guide

Lee grew up on the New England coastline, but while on a summer break from college in mid-90’s he was bitten by the “Yellowstone bug.” When his children had the opportunity to become enrolled in a dual immersion school program in Jackson Hole, he moved his family here permanently.   Lee has led almost a decade of summer tours through both Yellowstone and Grand Teton parks, as well as drove snowcoaches in the winter. His love for backcountry exploration took him over countless peaks and hundreds of miles along remote rivers and creeks. He helped discover and document more than 250 new waterfalls found in the last 20 years in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. While on safari, his favorite critter is the American pine marten because you don’t need bear spray to protect yourself from them.  Whether it’s historic trails, wildlife, geysers, and mountains or through the tales of his backcountry adventures, Lee brings the passion of discovery to his guests and has them fall in love with the parks as much as he once did.
