Another spectacular day in the west!

We started out at Cabellas, again, the third on our trip. Then we continued to the Moss Mansion – one of the rare ones that can be found in the West. As we swept through town, people on four wheelers drove to town on their ATVs as if they were motorcycles. Apparently that is not a problem here.

Highway 212 leads to Yellowstone National Park on a curvy, steep, switchback better known as Beartooth Loop. And it is awe inspiring!

Snow lingers atop the tall mountains and I couldn’t resist the urge to play in the remnants I could reach. I mean, who gets to play in snow in August in the USA?

Just outside of Yellowstone we saw two moose – a male and female – and another cow inside. Wolves called down from the peak above LeMar Valley, but we didn’t wait past dusk. Buffalo grazed lazily on the roadside and a large herd blocked us on the Grand Loop. But this time it wasn’t scary.

Funny how much difference a paved two lane road and several witnesses will make.

My cell phone reception here is hit and miss – though more miss than hit. So if you don’t hear from me until late, it’s because I am out of range.
