On through Yellowstone
The best and worst part of the trip was going over the range of mountains. We got up to about 8800 feet elevation, doing the hairpin turns all the way up. The views were beautiful, but I'll have to admit to some trepidation near the top until we got down the other side.
As we rounded one curve, it was fun to see a bison walking down the opposite lane of the road...with a bus and about 6 or 7 cars trailing behind.
The other impressive thing...it's so clean. Everyone is very respectful of the site, and you don't see a speck of litter.
Feel free to click on any of the pics to enlarge. The geyser is a bit blurred, but you'll get the idea.
We've taken a break in Boise for a bit so Carl can mow the yard and take care of a few chores, but I'll be back. That's it for now!
