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.

Further up the road we stopped at Pebble creek to look for mountain goats. Someone a few days ago told us they could be seen on the cliffs above this campsite.

We decided to eat lunch here and it was a great meal. From Cody we drove to Yellowstone for day two. Our goal was to enjoy the Canyon Village area and it did not disappoint. We saw more wildlife than during our first trip here. There ...
... walking through the remains of the end of civilization. We walked along boardwalks trying to wrap our brains around why we think it is so beautiful when its really so catastrophic. The kids were in awe as well but with a different understanding and knowledge base. They loved giggling at the smell of boiled eggs and the belching and spewing pools. We all shook our heads at the tourists who choose to not only walk on an active volcano but also disobey ...
... all the way up to Red Lodge Montana and come through the Beartooth Pass. We missed the turn and we were glad we did because the drive through the mountains was spectacular. It was after noon when we entered Yellowstone. We traveled through the Lamar Valley and very soon saw bison and in the far distance we saw a grizzly with binoculars. Also a black bear, a badger, and a prairie dog. We drove to Mammoth ...
