Yellowstone

THURSDAY

At one of the pullouts as we were viewing the beauty of the hot springs, we met a couple who hit a deer with their Ford 1500 pick up truck.😳 They patched their truck up with some duct tape and kept right on rolling (after they reported it, of course.) Poor deer.πŸ¦ŒπŸ˜”

We saw a spectacular waterfall today.

We also saw several bison in the fields and along side of the road. There were several warning signs to keep a safe distance from the wildlife, but some people just have to get THAT photo…smh. Cars were abruptly hitting their brakes and stopping on the road to get a better look. Some foolish folks were running across the roads trying to get closer, SMH…

There is snow here and there along side of the road and its about 40 degrees. Brrrrr! Cold!! Rain on and off all day today.

Some Shenanigans or as Craig’s dad Pete would say, “foolishness!” πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Craig is a phenomenal whistler…He was whistling “Moon River.” It sounded so pretty, I attempted to record him. 🀭🀫Busted! πŸ˜πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

Great day at Mammoth hot springs; beautiful and dangerous springs. It sure would have been nice to bask in one…but not these, the water is boiling.

Breathaking landscapes.

It was a LONG but excellent day at Mammoth Park and Hot Springs.

Craig. My hunny. Look at that cool walk.😁

It’s late, I’m sleepy. I’m lying in bed listening to the rain play a rhythm on the roof. It’s very soothing. Good night.

Friday

It rained ALL night long. We woke up to this.😳 SNOW FALLING!Our original plans were to head south through Yellowstone, visit Old Faithful, and Jackson Hole, WY however, they were thwarted by snow. Beginning at Old Faithful Geyser chains were required. Well, we have no chains for our RV nor do we want to drive it in snow anyway.

After a cup of coffee, filling our fuel and propane tanks, filling our water bottles, and dumping our waste tank we said farewell to Yellowstone about 11:30.We have to have our Kangen water! πŸ’§

We headed East on Highway 20, Idaho Falls bound. Craig will have to see Old Faithful on another trip.

Sidebar: 1) We both noticed that Oregon, Washington, Montana, Wyoming and Idaho are VERY CLEAN. We saw NO litter along the highways or towns. That really stood out to both of us.

Sidebar: 2) The though of getting a small dog to travel with us briefly crossed our minds…but after seeing pet owners have to make extra stops and getting up early in the cold and rain to walk their beloved pooches we agreed; NO dog πŸ•for us.😁Stopping in Idaho Falls for lunch… I think potatoes are on the menu…πŸ₯”πŸ˜

Hopefully I’ll have better reception and my posts will upload daily.
