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.

... they said it is cheaper there than in Yellowstone. We were so looking forward to eating in. You get tired of eating out all the time. We are staying in a cabin for four nights to rest, recoup, eat better food and take in Big Sky and Yellowstone. The drive in certainly draws you right night. Hypnotizing and different at every turn.

He seamed appropriately bear paranoid. Bearanoid if you will. I saw a coyote on the hill by our campsite. We later claimed that hill to get to a creek. There was a very large spinal cord on the creek bank so we decided ...
... I guess coffee is important to these camper/ranger people. Tonight were supposed to stay in a cabin and if it's the ones we passed on the way in, I will probably get attacked by a bear tonight when he knocks down the paper thin walls. I hope there's a bathroom at least. We also got to see the "Grand Canyon of Yellowstone" which was amazing and the pictures don't do it justice. Today were going to see Old ...

October 1st is the start of a new year in Washington, unless there is no budget. And today, there is no budget, so all non-essential services are shut down.
Bill and I hitch up the van and leave the Grizzly Bear campground and West Yellowstone behind. It was definitely the nicest camp site of the trip and the town was just what you would expect for a wild west town. We say goodbye and I'm a ...
