Jul 17, 2010 - Hike from Warm Creek to Pebble Creek Campground

Jerry and Linda, whom we worked with at Mammoth, stopped by the store while we were working. For those of you that subscribe to Workamper, they are on the banner. We were going to lunch, so they stayed and told us about the 1500 mile bike ride Jerry did with Linda driving the van, cooking, setting up camp etc. (Sorry but that won’t happen in my lifetime). We made plans to meet the next day at Pebble Creek Campground near the northeast entrance of Yellowstone, just past Lamar Valley. We left our car at the campground and went in the van up...

Jul 4, 2008 - Silver Gate

There's not much to say about this except that we touched down in Montana. Another check in the box at state #8 (Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming and Montana.) We passed through Silver Gate at about 5:00 am on the way to Yellowstone - everyone was sleeping, so I snapped a photo of the sign.

May 31, 2008 - Northeast Entrance of Yellowstone

Now we are approaching the Northeast Entrance. We stopped in Cooke City, and grabbed a bite to eat. It's much cooler in this area than west Yellowstone. The area is beautiful with the sagebrush, fir, pine, aspen and spruce. Here's more pictures of the return trip. We stopped at Tower Falls again because there is always so much animal activity there. Tower Falls is 132 feet in height.

Sep 29, 2006 - Chief Joseph Scenic Highway, WY

Drove the stunning Chief Joseph scenic highway through the mountains and across Dead Indian Summit. The route traces the escape made by the Nez Perce Indians as they evaded the US army against the odds in the summer of 1877. Along the way we stopped to take a photo of Pilot Peak, the mountain from the beginning of Paramount Pictures moives.

Sep 7, 2006 - Chief Joseph Scenic Byway

Well, after the road work yesterday into the East Entrance to the park, we have decided to check it out & see if we want to bring our home in from the North Entrance. So, we backtracked to Cody & headed North to the Chief Joseph Scenic Byway. This byway climbs Dead Indian Summit. It is believed that prehistoric Indians inhabitated the area now known as the Dead Indian Archaeology Site some 4,500 years ago. Beautiful mountain vistas but boy the switchbacks were unbelievable! I think there were at least 5 at all times! Think you can see in...
