Sep 10, 2016 - Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone – The crown jewel of America – and we completely agree!! As we left Cody and came around a large curve, there it was – all the beauty you can imagine and I admit I cried, just like my mama, I cried for happy – it was BREATHTAKING beautiful. The grandeur of those first few mountains took my breath away. We drove up to our campsite among some very twisting, curvy, climbing roads, there was even SNOW on the ground. Not much, but enough to say it had snowed the night before. Steve drove like a pro, even conquering Sylvan Pass which...

Sep 19, 2012 - Grant Village to Fishing Bridge, Wyoming via Cody

This ended up being a longer day than we had first thought. Because our lodging for tonight was less than a half hour's drive, we wanted to drive to Cody to enjoy the sights and sounds of a cowboy town. So our early departure gave us pleasant surprises as we watched the fumaroles (steam vents) along the shoreline of Yellowstone Lake (and its West Thumb area), in seeing an elk cow grazing right beside the road, in watching a variety of ducks and geese glide over the calm waters of the lake, and coming up on a lone bull bison grazing in a...

Aug 27, 2011 - Yellowstone

Our last few days before leaving Yellowstone National Park to move to the Grand Tetons National Park= We spent the day touring the geysers and thermal features. Old Faithful was impressive but there were so many people it was like a zoo. The Chromatic Pools were the most impressive. The pictures do not capture all of the vivid colors. John & I hiked Elephant Back trail. It climbs from 7800 feet to 8600 feet to reach the overlook. The overlook gives you a view of Yellowstone Lake, Pelican Valley and the Absaroka Mountain Range. We didn't...

Aug 18, 2010 - Daily occurrence

The bison have moved from Hayden Valley a little more south to our area. This is a daily sight now. What’s worse than the bison walking down the middle of the street are the tourists who stop their vehicles in the middle of the road, get out of their car, leave the door open to go get a picture.

Jul 24, 2010 - Travel through Fishing Bridge

Tour continues through Yellowstone NP. Stopped at Fishing Bridge station to look at the stuffed animals and Topographical map. Yikes, not sure we want to travel past Cody, WY. At Pelican Bridge, we were looking for Pelican's and Bears when we witnessed the aftermath of a Red pick-up Truck going off the road and into the shallow lake. Many people were pulling their car/trucks over to the side of the road to help. We decided our car and camper might be more of a hindrance to the rescue operation and decided not to stop. Needless to say, I...

Jul 21, 2010 - General Update

7-18 A fire started around Beach Lake which is north of West Thumb, and approx 7 1/2 miles west of Bridge Bay Marina and Campground. At first we heard it burned 100 acres and was heading toward the area which had burned last year, and they expected it to burn itself out. 7-21 420 acres later, a Fire Camp has been set up behind the store in Fishing Bridge. This is where the firefighters can come to rest and eat. The Helena Hotshots were the first to arrive. Loyal and LouAnn Yarnell stopped by the store today, they will be working in Mammoth...

May 29, 2010 - A ride out to Steamboat Point

We took a ride out to Steamboat Point to check the computer and telephone and in the meantime took some pictures of a grizzly bear. She is approx two years old. We have been pretty busy with our work schedule especially since we get a 3 hour lunch break, it makes it a lonnnnngggggg day. But we enjoy what we do and have met alot of people and enjoy the new coworkers we have. We missed seeing Pete and Jan Bowlds when they came by to see us, it was our day off. They are full-timing as well.

May 3, 2010 - Back to Fishing Bridge

We left our orientation around 3:00 the weather looked like it was going to get real ugly. They said going over Craig Pass would be a quicker way, better roads, so off we went. This southern route through Old Faithful was approx 69 miles. Most of the roads were good, until ……. We did make it, but right behind us not too far away, a car got stuck. Another car tried to go around it and slid into the stuck car. Some motorhomes behind this accident were having difficulty. A 45 foot motorhome was sliding on the road, and ended up backing up for...

May 2, 2010 - West Yellowstone to Fishing Bridge

Today we traveled from West Yellowstone into Fishing Bridge which was approx 52 miles. The park ranger said the southern route was closed and we had to drive through the Grand Loop Road, Norris-Madison: Gibbon Canyon construction area along the Gibbons River where they are installing a new bridge and diverting the road for better travel. This construction began last year and is expected to be completed somewhere between Sept 1 and Oct 20 of this year.

Sep 14, 2009 - Uncle Tom

Moved our base of operations from Grant on up to Fishing Bridge; will be here for 2 nights. Dropped trailer and headed up to Canyon. On the way we stopped at West Thumb to look at some more geysers and pools. These ones flow into Lake Yellowstone. Canyon is where the Upper and Lower falls are at the start of "the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone". You can look at pictures, but seeing really is believing. We took the challenge to take Uncle Toms trail. This trail drops 500 ft and has 328 metal grate steps attached to the rock face as it's...

Sep 10, 2009 - Yellowstone

I will never get tired of going to Yellowstone. Of all the National Parks I think this is my favorite....We enjoyed seeing the fox...sorry it is so hard to see him..he actually ran across the road in front of us. The amount of water over the falls is amazing and something you really would not expect to see with all the hot geysers. The grand finale was literally being surrounded by buffalo. We were on the bridge about dusk and had them in front of us, to the side of us, and in back of us. We could not move..Our walk after dinner with...
