We get up early and I get this photo of the sunrise from our campground.
The fog is just lifting when we go by Buffalo Bill Reservoir.
We enter Yellowstone Park through the East Entrance and not too far into the park I see my first bear in Yellowstone!
We continue on through the park by the Yellowstone River.
We make a stop to see Old Faithful and time it perfect.
We leave Old Faithful with plans for our next stop to be a picnic lunch, but we somehow loose John and Nancy in all the traffic. We stop at Excelsior Geyser Falls, mistake, we are trapped by all the traffic. We luck out by the time we get to the parking area to get a spot beside a tour bus.
We continue on and luck into seeing a meadow with a herd of buffalo.
And here is my up close and personal shot:
We cross the Continental Divide again.
And go by Yellowstone Lake. We see all the devastation from the forest fire.
We finally catch up and find John and Nancy and have our picnic lunch on the Madison River.
Others are enjoying the river by fly fishing.
We have to go through some yucky major road construction, but the sights are well worth it. The fall colors are starting as we head on into Idaho Falls.
When we finally find the right campground – Snake River RV Campground – it is quite nice. We go out to a nice dinner to end another great day.
