"Variety is the beauty of the job, but the work can be dizzying," said Tim Reid, a supervisory ranger at Yellowstone, which has about 50 permanent law enforcement rangers for the roughly 2.2 million-acre park and about 3 million visitors each year.
From 1980 to 2002, over 60 new units were added to the National Park system, and others were expanded.Annual visitations rose from 300 million to 430 million people.

Tim Reid, Chief Ranger at Yellowstone National Park, says in the past two months two groups of treasure hunters have put themselves and others in danger by disobeying park regulations.
"They are essentially unprepared and either ignorant of regulations or willfully disregarding," said Reid.
Documents from District Court of Wyoming at Yellowstone National Park indicate the most recent incident happened less than two weeks ago on May 9, 2014.
Reid says park rangers found a group of five to six people along Slough Creek. A search and rescue was required and that's when rangers discovered it was also a law enforcement issue.
The group had broken more than a dozen laws. They had metal detectors, a shovel and planned to dig. These are "violations of laws that govern Yellowstone and protect Yellowstone," explained Reid.
They had even built a raft out of fallen trees and other natural items in the park, and tried to cross the river. But the rivers and creeks in Yellowstone are moving fast right now and Reid says they had to perform a swift current rescue. A dangerous task for all involved.
Reid says these hunters are searching for the Forrest Fenn treasure.
"The primary reason for being in the park was to look for the alleged treasure," said Reid. The court documents from 2013 show the man pleaded guilty for violating conditions of backcountry permitting. The man was fined $1,000 and banned from the park.
The most recent offenders are facing a similar fate. "You can't use metal detectors, you can't dig and even if you find something you can't remove it," said Reid.
"We will be seeking the most aggressive penalty... Including cost recovery and banned from the park," said Reid.
Reid says, there is an abandoned property statute, and if it's not yours, you can't take it out either.

Tim Reid, YNP Deputy Chief Ranger said he thought the IBMP was providing a springboard to progress, but noted the "scale and scope" of the issue could mean "success" might not come for 20 to 30 years.
