My first time to Yellowstone was an adventure! The fields and farms we passed en route to Yellowstone were the most amazing color of gold! We entered on the Western side. It was a girls trip and we did the whole Western loop in 24 hours. We stayed in the Park at a very eco friendly hotel called Canyon Park. I stuck a picture of the cute bear soap from the room! It was new and nice. Alot is closed this time of the year. The whole park closes next week!
We stopped in Ashlan Idaho for a root beer float at Frostys drive-in on the way . We think it has been featured on Diners,Drive-in and Dives.
Then on toward the Park! We saw bison first! Then elk . It was a great grandfather and 5 ladies. No one was pulled over looking at them. I’ve never seen anything that big. The grandfather( I assume) hid so it was hard to see him or get a picture. I think his horns were the size of a small WV. We saw a lot more elk but nothing compared to that first group we saw! When we were leaving we did see a male elk bugling and chasing 2 female!
We came upon 8 or so cars pulled over next. and it was a mama and baby grizzly! They were amazing to watch. They were right next to the road!
We were on the way to see Old Faithful and had to get there on time. It erupts every 90 minutes. There are MANY geysers in the Park but this one is the most predictable.
I highly recommend going to Yellowstone. But go when the tour buses aren’t around. This was a great time! It is a wonderful National Park and makes me proud of America! 🇺🇸
