Day 141

We took advantage of being in Bozeman to steal a quick trip into Yellowstone National Park before all of the Summer Crowd arrive…

Gas-up Selfie the night before!

Looking into the Park at 12mm!

And again!

There is a new place to eat in West Yellowstone…

Once in the Park we decided to visit Old Faithful Geyser.  And immediately hit traffic.  3.8 miles in just over an hour.  I think it was some kind of construction.

So we finally turned around and headed north towards Norris.  A big crowd was pulled over for…

He was quite close to the road.  All of the asian tourists there (and there were a bunch in the Park Sunday!) were chanting it was a wolf…

I am leaning towards coyote, myself.  {!-{P

There were resting Bison near Twin Lakes?

And of course, it was raining by then.  A closeup of the birds on their backs.  Click on it a couple of times to see it larger.  BACK to return here!

Some steam pot or another…

Norris Geyser Basin in one.

Wildlife Jam.

Obsidian Cliffs.

Through the Golden Gate above Mammoth Hot Springs.

Northbound Elk in Mammoth.

All in all a nice day in Yellowstone.  A good trip overall, and The Outback has marvelous Baked Potato Soup!

Day 140

Saturday the father of my partner in crime form college got remarried in Bozeman.  We attended his first wife’s memorial service back in January of 2017.  It was a wonderful (and short!) ceremony.

Chuck and Florence are longtime friends.  She seems like a very nice lady.  I had not met her before.

A good time was had by all!  Best wishes to the happy couple!

Day 135

A sunny day and the blossoms were on the trees, and the Dailylife Wife wielding the lawnmower.  Not so many  blossoms anymore, just a couple of days later.  A two photo panorama.
