Well we made it to Yellowstone ok. We really didn't have to worry about the weather at all. But we did see alot of snow on the way.
We called into a Visitor Centre at Ashton to enquire about the roads up to the park. The ladies informed us that even though it had been snowing up there the way we were going was fine. We were entering from the west side.
They did tell us however of a little detour on the way that took us to Mesa Falls - very worthwhile!
|they held up the traffic for a couple of miles!|
|It certainly lived up to it's name|
The Park has these all over, some smell really bad of sulphur - I avoided those ones :)
This is a lake near some thermal pools, it may not look like it but that is ice on top:
|It Was a freezing cold day, it snowed on and off!|
|This fellow didn't mind the cold - he went for a swim!|
While we were there we came across a Photo Studio that takes old time photo's of you with stuffed animals, so we decided to do that:
|Dave got to hold a Gun!|
|It was great fun!|
We are constantly amazed by this country's beauty and how quickly the landscape changes.
Today we drove to Billings on our way to Rapid City to see Mt Rushmore. Here is some scenery that we witnessed today:
That's all for now,
