From Rapid City and Mt. Rushmore, we headed west along the I 90 and the weather was rather gloomy. We spent a night at one of the Billings' WalMarts, then a night in Livingston and drove from there into Yellowstone National Park. 

Unfortunately, the weather got worse as we got close to Yellowstone. Almost our whole time there it was wet...from light drizzle to heavy rain...and quite chilly! There was even lots of snow all over the mountains, but thankfully, not on the roads. The weather really spoiled our visit to this marvelous park, so we didn't go all the way to Old Faithful and we only did the northern loop.

We saw a few animals but nothing like I'm sure we would have seen if the weather hadn't shorten our visit.  Also, sadly, most of the few photos that I did take of a few elk, some bison and some scenery, accidentaly got deleted. Oh well.

The next couple of weeks were rather quiet and unexciting, so there's not much to say.
