Sunday we both tried to totally exhaust ourselves—Michael working on his “thumb” project and me in the flower beds pulling weeds. Today we decided to take a drive—that way we wouldn’t be caught working! Over the Beartooth Highway we went—340 miles total—from home to Red Lodge, Montana then up over the 11,000 feet Beartooth Pass, into Cooke City and back home via Yellowstone Park and Livingston, Montana. It was a glorious day!
Traffic outside Yellowstone was light—and lighter than usual inside the Park—it is early in the season but there were several buffalo and bear jams as we traveled along. We shared the driving and Emmi kept an eye out for critters—we saw two bear, loads of buffalo, antelope, sheep and elk.
Michael took these bear photos:
We stopped in Silver Gate for Wilcoxson’s ice cream milkshakes before heading into the Park—YUM!
We are so fortunate to call Yellowstone Park our backyard!
