Sep 11, 2016 - Camels

Across from the campground is a camel adventure and I went over to check it out. They offer a meet and greet, short and longer rides. I did the meet and greet and found them to be very friendly. These camels spend the summer in Montana and then go to Texas for the winter, however 2 of them will stay this year in Montana. They can carry about twice the weight of a horse and will be used to haul elk for hunters, as as experiment. The dromedaries are from Africa and have one hump, are more friendly, and grow to 9 feet. The Asian camel has 2...

2016 Eagle trip

Sep 10, 2016 - Tower Roosevelt

Today we took a drive through part of Yellowstone we had not seen before. First we drove south to Norris Geyser basin and stopped at the cabin built for the first park rangers, there was a video about the establishment of the Rangers after the use of the Army to first protect the park. We could not see any parking close to the geysers so decided to go on, just too many people in that area, beautiful day on the weekend with heavy crowds. We stopped at the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone - so fantastic - and viewed the lower falls. Then we...

2016 Eagle trip

Sep 9, 2016 - Livingston museums

We took a leisurely drive to Livingston to check it out as it's the main town around here. Their historical museum had interesting artifacts as is located in an old school house. We went to a couple of interesting shops and took scenic hwy 540 that parallels hwy 89 back through ranch country. We did see a billboard for Music Ranch Montana but never found it's location, unfortunately it has closed for the summer. We did drive through Pine Creek and although it looks rustic and like just a bar they are holding a 3 day bluegrass music festival...

2016 Eagle trip

Sep 8, 2016 - Mammoth Hot Springs

We arrived at the campground yesterday, Hwy 89 was very easy to Emigrant. Weather is just fantastic, clear skies, cool nights and moderate days. Today we drove to the north entrance of Yellowstone Park. It was a scenic drive and we drove through the small town of Gardiner with lots of shops and facilities, two campgrounds as well. It would be difficult to go into the park with the Eagle so being as far north as we are reduces the amount of Eagle backtracking. Mammoth Hot springs is mammoth and I am so glad we were able to finally see this...

Jul 18, 2015 - Day Three - Brave

Three people today told me they thought I was brave for going it alone and I got two thumbs up for backing the trailer like a pro. Huh, I figure if a guy can do it so can I. In fact, at both campgrounds so far on the trip I've met other solo female RVers. One was a sweet granny with her cats in a ginormous rig and towing her car, off to visit the grandkids! Now that's brave - the giant RV part, not the visiting the grandkids part. I may be brave but also a little stupid to drive through Yellowstone Park on the way to Montana today. A...

Sacagawea and Me

Jun 20, 2013 - We are back on the road again

Paul is officially unemployed … His doing, sort of … In years past the Yellowstone General Store at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park was a really fun place to work. Sometimes the hours seemed kind of long, sometimes it got pretty hectic when a couple of bus loads of guests showed up all at the same time, but it was a fun place to work. Not this year, at least not for Paul. Getting told that he was GREAT with the guests when at the register, Paul loves working the register. Assigning him to stocking or scooping didn’t make a...

Jul 31, 2010 - Yellowstone NP

7-31-10 We departed the RVP shortly after 5:00 AM and traveled to Yellowstone NP arriving just before 6:00 AM. The plan was to look for wildlife early in the morning while they were active and before the crowds created too many animal sighting jams. Although we did not do as well as expected, sightings included Pronghorn Antelope, Coyote, Fox, Elk, Trumpeter Swans, Ravens, Bison and many unidentified song birds. Our plan was sound as traffic was not a problem and we had made all of our sightings prior to 9:00 AM. The entire tour was...

West Coast 2010

Jul 30, 2010 - Another Change of Plans

7-30-10 Today the early morning temperature was 58 degrees but it began to rise rapidly. We departed Sheridan around 8:00, reaching Montana after 23 miles of travel. The landscape is rolling hills covered in grasses with a few cattle observed. We could see the Beartooth Mountain Range to our west during most of our drive today. Our trip took us by the Little Bighorn Battlefield but we did not stop as we visited a couple of years ago and did not feel is was worth a second stop. Norma remarked what a large state Montana was for us to be...

West Coast 2010

Jun 21, 2010 - Base Camp!

The trip from Missoula to our destination at Yellowstone’s Edge RV Park south of Livingston is approximately 250 miles, mostly on Interstate 90. The route crosses the Continental Divide just east of Butte, and then descends to Belgrade and Bozeman before arriving at our “turning point” in Livingston. From there our destination is some 18 miles south, with the nearest “town” being Emigrant. The RV Park is located on the Yellowstone River, on a long strip of riverfront property that stretches for over a half mile, so that all of the sites are...

May 26, 2010 - Day 5

Well we are on our leg to Emigrant, Montana. The part of the trip that I have been looking forward to. My cousin Gerri is my most favorite relative. She has come to Tucson since that is where all the family is and if she lived there I would probably be at her house all the time. She is my mother's 1st cousin so I suppose we are second cousins. Any ways, we went the long way around to her place. Rather than going through the park, we went up to Bozeman and then back down to Emigrant. We saw some awesome scenery as well as more mountains...

2010 Montana

Jul 22, 2008 - Leaving Washington heading East to Idaho & Montana

After deciding we wouldn't have time enough to go to Alaska we decided to head East To Yellowstone Natl. Park in Montana.The mountains going thru Idaho into Montana were 7000 ft. for one and 6500 ft for the other one and everyone knows I don't like mountains especially the going down part. But as you can tell I made it over both of them and we are going into Yellowstone tomorrow.The park we are in is at the edge of the park on the Yellowstone river and it is a beautiful park.
