Yellowstone Day 6- August 31st

September 17, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Headed out of Gardiner, through Mammoth on our way to the HUGE town of Silver Gate, MT.

A nice group of pronghorn along the road; several waterfalls that didn't photograph well; the classic petrified tree - locked behind a fence to keep people from looting it; Tower Falls and the the lower end of the 'Grand Canyon of Yellowstone' with the Yellowstone River; lunch at Roosevelt Lodge; then Silver Gate & Cooke City.

We went back into the park and got stuck in a bison jam. We did a short hike up to Trout Lake and saw some cutthroat trout! Great mountain views, then back down. On our way out of the park we saw a red fox marking his territory - apparently the entire park is his.

Out motel -Grizzly Lodge - had a bonfire and I took some pictures of the rising full moon (maybe it was the blue moon night.) Someone was throwing logs on the fire, which made for some cool spark trails.
