We spent two nights at Yellowstone. I will try to cramp the highlights of Yellowstone in one entry although we had the equivalent of two days there.
We saw parts of it passing through on our way to the Tetons and going to our hotel the following day. Then we explored a full day driving to Mammoth Hot Springs and doing the circle of the higher part of the figure eight.
When I called the hotel if they had a street address I was told that Canyon Lodge won’t be picked up by a GPS and besides there’s only one road throughout the park so one can’t get lost which is true.
I was glad that they assigned as at the newer Dunraven Lodge. Among the accommodations we had, this was my favorite even though it was a drive to go to the Canyon Village where all the facilities/services are. It made it very quiet.
From Mammoth we went through the Dunraven Pass which was just as scary as the drive to/from St. Mary’s Lake in Glacier. Good thing we were there early in the season that I had the road to myself once again and can drive at the middle of the road when I was supposed to be on the outer lane.
I guess I need to do a second part to Yellowstone. The National Park is way too big and offers so many things that one entry is not sufficient.
The next day we went to Mammoth Hot Springs . . . (to be continued)
