I had a nearly sleepless night. I guess I missed the noise of trains.
We awoke to 36 sunny degrees. After thumping the tires,
We headed out at 8, top off with gas and pass the National Elk Rufuge. They were not at home. We saw bald eagles and a few nests. We entered Grand Teton National Park. We saw pronghorns here in the sage brush flats. We made photos of the Tetons reflected in Jenny Lake. The Snake River is dammed to make a huge, beautiful lake. SO awesome, words fail to describe and the eyes can not comprehend. We were not planning to do this park, but we are SO glad we did.
We leave Teton and enter Yellowstone National Park. The elevation increases. We cross the Continental Divide at 7988 ft and 8391 ft and 8262 feet. We pass large, frozen Lewis Lake
We drove on to the Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone, Montana. I hope it doesn't live up to its name, but there are signs up about bear activity in the area. This is a cute town that hasn't opened for the season yet. We walked a few blocks to eat at the Timberline Cafe [I finally got a cinnamon bun for breakfast tomorrow]. Then on to Mcdonald's for ice cream and FREE WIFI. We are here for three nights. They have a wifi system that gives 2 hours of wifi for two persons every 10 hours. NOW who thought that up? We have booked tours for the next two days into Yellowstone. They are 8 hours each and travel over 100 miles each day. What a place.
We came across three other Great Alaskan Holiday RVs today. That is the company that rents the RVs to us to get them to Anchorage. One is here tonight. We only did 140 miles today, but we made many stops. It was 74 degrees here, the same as home,[ according to Frank he had our lawn mowed]. I am WAY over dressed!
By the way, we had to remove the water hose from theirs tonight because THERE IS A FREEZE WARNING. If the bears don't get us we might freeze to death.
What an awesome God who created such a wondrous planet!
