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.

Vanmorgen op tijd opgestaan zodat we vroeg het park in konden gaan. We hebben voor het eerst van ons leven een ontbijt bij Mc Donalds gehaald (die tegenover ons motel zat), vooral vanwege het snel op pad kunnen gaan.\
Als eerste zijn we gestopt bij de Lower Geyser Basin, al prachtig om te zien. Vervolgens naar Old Faithful gereden wat …
... we noticed that it said check in was back in town, some five miles away. So we returned to town, to then drive back up the dusty gravel track to the cabin. The car had changed colour when we finally parked up, no longer black, now a dusty brown!

Well, now I just cancelled his only means to get back home, thinking I was doing someone a favor. Long story short, I lent him my phone and he was able to convince American Express to uncancel his card. Shortly after the eruption (right on time) we hustled back to the car to beat the traffic back to ...
Thursday, we started out around 8:30. We were camping a mile from the north entrance to Yellowstone. We were in Montana, but most of Yellowstone is in Wyoming.
What at a great way to start the morning. I was up early, as usual, sitting at the picnic table with my coffee and Suduko puzzle. It was about 5:30 am. Something made me look up from my puzzle. Standing about 6 feet away from me was a momma mule deer. She stood there quietly and stared ...
Determined to make a huge driving tour loop through Yellowstone, we got an early start and hit the park hard. At our first stop, we strolled along a short boardwalk path through Norris Geyser Basin, the park's hottest, most acidic hydrothermal area. Essentially bubbling geysers and steaming hot springs filled a barren wasteland basin, looking quite other worldly. We continued on our grand loop toward Mammoth Hot Springs. There we stopped to catch a glimpse, among the crowds ...
