After leaving Grand Teton, we headed north to see the famous Yellowstone. I visited the park when I was in high school and wasn’t as impressed with it as it seems everyone else is. Mr Chiots had never been, so we decided to drive through.
It’s a huge park and you have to drive many miles to see everything. It’s also quite busy and it can be difficult to find parking at the pull-outs. Since I’m not a huge fan of crowds, Yellowstone is not my favorite park. It’s interesting nonetheless to see all the weird stuff that is found within it’s borders from geysers, hot springs, boiling mud and so many other things.
Luckily we arrived at the Old Faithful stop about a half hour before it went off, so we didn’t have to wait a long time to see it.
As we drove through the easter part of the park the sun was setting so all the wildlife was out and about. We spotted many bison and a few elk. Since we didn’t want to stay in the park, we drove out of the park to stay in Shoshone National Forest on the outskirts of Yellowstone.
As we were driving we spotted a sign that said “Camp at your own risk – grizzly bear area”. That didn’t stop us, we camped at Eagle Creek Campground. Unfortunately we didn’t see the camp at your risk sign again the next morning when it was bright enough to take a photo, just this bear sign.
Check my Flickr Photostream for more photos of each part of the trip, I’ll be uploading them as I have time.
Have you ever visited Yellowstone National Park?
