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 …
... craziest thing I've ever seen. We sat in the hot (sometimes really hot) bath while the sun set over the mountains in pinks and blues. Truly perfection. The kids loved it. There were people there but not as many as during the day. Everyone found their little pockets or personal hot tubs and enjoyed. A must if you go to Yellowstone. Some people go early in the morning but we think sunset is ...
... was up a hill that overlooks the town. The site we were given was crazy! They had us pull into the sites right up near a fence that was on the edge of very steep hill. When Stan came to a stop, from inside the coach, it looked like we were going to go over the edge! High on a hill, our windshield became a picture window that overlooked the little town of Gardiner and the mountains. Perfect! This would be our home for three nights.
Today we started off by picking up a gourmet packed lunch from Subway for a picnic later in the day. Traffic was heavy entering the park but not too bad as we drove toward Mammoth Springs in the north. Saw a lot of wild life from the car. We saw a bison hitch hiking. We only stopped long enough for a up close pic. Bison and coyote's like to stop traffic while they take there time crossing roads. This was our ...
... to drink. Into Yellowstone we troop – 5 minutes into it we see 3 elk eating not far from the side of the road, another 5 minutes we see a massive bull bison and then onto Old Faithful the Geyser. This erupts every 90 minutes, give or take a few minutes. Very impressive. Old Faithfull Inn is on the edge of the geyser and is a wonderful, huge building completed in 1904 and consists of 4 floors. Inside everything is all ...
