Yellowstone National Park is a truly great place to visit. We watched Old Faithful, saw our favorite Firehole Road geysers, enjoyed lunch at the Old Faithful Inn. We drove over Dunraven Pass where there still was a lot of snow.
We went to Roosevelt Lodge, visited the hot springs at Mammoth, gazed at the Yellowstone River. And of course saw wildlife everywhere, except bears.
We attended Mass at Our Lady of the Pines in West Yellowstone twice, a lovely little church with no permanently assigned priests in attendance and mostly supported by the tourists. It was full each Sunday and the two priests were great.
One Sunday we had a wonderful breakfast at the Running Bear Pancake House. We could tell it would be good because it was packed.
Sometimes the weather was cold and gray, sometimes it was sunny and warm. Always we had a great time.
