Since we went to bed so early last night, we were up and out of the campground in Deadwood at 7 am. John was in a hurry, so I didn't even have a chance to get dressed before we got on the road. The beauty of having an RV is that I can travel down the road drinking my first cup of coffee in my robe and pajamas.

... It was beautiful, and also totally freezing! Back to the car! On the way back we were enveloped by blowing sulfuric steam which, while totally stinky, was warming and nice. But what’s that? People are FISHING in the Firehole River – named that because the spring and other thermal features overflow into it! I guess that’s safe? We continued our drive through the park to see Artists Paintpots, where there were many different colored mudpots (Alex’s ...
... angular limestone walls, and as I mentioned, several herds of bison, roaming the green pastures along the riverbank. We must have seen 400 of these animals, and immense they are. And when they want to stand around in the road, you don't argue with them. You wait patiently until they move on.
We saw the results of the numerous forest fires that have burned through Yellowstone Park. The trees are dead, some charred ...

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.
