Not the best place to stay, but it was more reasonable than what was available in Cody. The room and it's accommodations were very run down. I'll have to get a better definition of what "full" means when they advertise a full buffet breakfast. The little window air conditioner couldn't cool the whole room, not to mention the garbage dumpster sat right underneath it. If your in to rustic, then this place is for you.

... herd of bison grazing, several sightings of elk and bald eagles. A bull bison can weigh a ton. Bison carry brucellosis and if they stray out of the park, ranchers tend to shoot them. Once there were 70m bison and within 20 years with an open season on them the number was down to 24. The largest herd is here in Yellowstone now with 4500. Called at lots of other hot spots. Had lunch at Mammoth Hot Springs - lots of elk grazing on the lawns. ...
Oscar was fantastic - keeping an eye on unexpected eruptions in the distance as well as some that there are no predictions for. If he raced off, we followed at a slower pace. Our favourites were: Grotto Geyser, which looks like a troll, with water bubbling out of the nose and ears; 'Giant', which took us by surprise and was big; and Riverside, which comes out sideways across Firehole River. This erupted in early evening and had a rainbow ...
... what you do if you can’t get a spot – I guess drive out the park). I won’t bore you with the details of everything we saw, but in simple terms there are a lot of bubbling pools (mainly water, but some mud pools too) and erupting geysers. One kid we heard was complaining that they had seen “so many hot steamy things already”, and although I can agree there were a lot, we never got bored of seeing them as they are all different and you ...
... don’t have bear spray you will be killed by a bear" or words to that effect, so instead we drove back to the tent and showered.
There is an auditorium here which when I had first heard about when I was at home I assumed they would have outdoor plays on or films or something but unfortunately the rather more sensible reality was that it was an indoor room where the rangers talk about the park. We opted not to do this on all 3 nights which sort ...
... had to retreat to the tent early but tonight we remedied this by buying firewood and kindling to make a fire. It took us a while somehow but eventually we had a fire that wasn’t roaring but somewhere in between roaring and match. We waited till it went out before going to the tent to watch OITB around 9ish. I wasn’t making the same mistake tonight as last so I wore two pairs of socks, a t-shirt, a hoodie and because I have no light trousers – a sarong. ...
