Thank you for the suggestion. Turns out that the operation at Kennedy Meadows is quite a bit bigger with restaurant, lodging, store, etc. That is up the highway from the one I'm tagging but I'm following your suggestion minus the animal_boarding, feeding, etc. as it appears from the operator's web site that they are set up to care for their stock only.
