On our last night in Yellowstone we stayed in the town of Gardiner. Our room had a small kitchen and a patio area in the back facing the Yellowstone River. We slept with the windows open and all night we could hear the Yellowstone River running. I will never forget that.
Gardiner, itself is a pleasant little town right outside the north entrance to Yellowstone Park. You can see the Roosevelt Arch from Gardiners's downtown.

We have a few more days here and an overnight in Helena, to make the trip distances manageable, for it to ...
... of them, maybe thousands as far as you could see. This must have been the sight early explorers encountered as they crossed America.
We saw Elk, including a huge one that had massive antlers that were a few feet long. Rangers were trying to control people to stop them getting too close. This was also the case when we came across a bear with two bear cubs that had stopped for a nap under a tree, escaping the heat. The rangers were keeping people ...
... A favourite tale was set in the American Wild West. It had a double page illustration of the buffalo hunt; an Indian brave and painted pony as one at full stretch, bow drawn, all muscle and sinew, nostrils flared, foam and flint and skill and courage. I remembered that painting in all its graphic heroic splendour as we rode into South Western Alberta on our way to a place called Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump a World Heritage ...
