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.

... geysers but humoured my fascination. We continued our drive to Canyon where we had a snack while our suite (get us!) was made ready. The suite was lovely in brand new lodge buildings. We dropped our stuff & headed out for an afternoon drive to the Lamer Valley, which was warm & different scenery again. We saw lots of buffalo, antelope & a fox!

On announcing his find to the other amateur osprey hunters he briefly became a ...
... where we saw a couple of herds of buffalo. I also saw a vulture gobbling a kill alongside the highway. Peg saw a bald eagle flying overhead. We passed the northern shore of Yellowstone Lake. This lake is so large it can create its own weather system. Saw several boiling cauldrons of what are called mud pots but did not stop with the camper.
We needed to get to camp to get our city water inlet fixed. As I told you yesterday I broke not only ...
... Unfortunately, most of the trees were carted off by tourists long ago and there is one half tree, surrounded by fencing, left to see.
We waited for an hour to get lunch at Roosevelt Lodge and should have just stuck with our traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich lunch staple. It was expensive, the service was poor, the wait for food once we were seated was unbearably long, and the food was meh.
We found one last waterfall, Tower ...
Currently in rhe town of west yellowstone to get a bite to eat and a good signal. After OF we went back to the prismatic pool and hiked south of it up a steep hill. Wow. We hit some nice waterfalls and will be heading back to camp soon. Saw an elk bull and cow right alongside the road and the usual paparazzi. Tonight we might got for a late night hike back to Norris basin for milkyway photos, headlamps and bear spray in hand. Ok, buffalo burger just ...
