We checked out and hit the road but couldn't resist stopping a number of times before we left the park. The road between West Thumb and Maddison not only follows the pretty Firehole River but all along the road rising gases spew into the air like a kettle on the boil. Fortunately Firehole was much easier to access than other sites. The steam rising …

After the workout we were ready for the hot tub which we had all to ourselves. we relaxed there for a while chatting with each other and enjoying the moment.
We had a good dinner at Rainbow Ranch and then shut it down for the night. We head to Yellowstone tomorrow. ...

We visited the playground for some teeter tottering, slide riding and bridge walking. Then we rode in a really cool (and old) Flintstones car prior to heading back to the RV for our VERY VERY LONG 9+ hour ...
"Thunder Rolling in the Mountains leads the people across the Great Divide - there's blood on the snow in the hills of Idaho, but the heart of the Appaloosa never dies." That's a line from a song that's been going through my head for days, and it just seemed fitting for today. Of course, we changed the lyrics to read "...there's blood on the roads in the hills of Idaho, but the heart of a bicycle rider never dies!" Thankfully, we have not had ...

Up at 7am as J wanted to go for a run - I wasn't so keen, not having slept much, but was feeling guilty from too many doughnuts so I dragged myself from my bed and girded my loins. What a mad idea - it was freezing, we were over 2000 metres (so the air was thin) and I am just not built for running. J wasn't going to wait for me and off she went like a startled elk leaving me ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsEl Western Cabins & Lodges Ennis
I am partial to independent, mom-and-pop places but this one really blew me away. These log cabins and the lawns and trees have been carefully maintained and tended for over 60 years...they are incredible. Huge picture windows with views of the Rockies in all the cabins and a little creek (or "crick" as they say here) with big green lawns and giant spruce trees - it is amazing. They do have WiFi and the interiors have been updated, but the furniture is authentic "old west" and they are clean, clean, clean. We took a larger (and slightly newer) Mountainside cabin with a fireplace with the wood provided at no charge...but since it was July, we didn't actually start a fire. No restaurant on the place, but several close by in Ennis and with a kitchen in our cabin, we shopped at the local grocery store and grilled out.
We really loved this place and we can see why several of the guests we met have come back for many years.
