Once we checked in, we took a short tour of some of the geothermal activity in one part of the park. Tomorrow, we'll do a more complete tour of the park ad see among other attractions, Old Faithful.
Today brought us to Yellowstone National Park. The highlight of today's journey without a doubt was viewing the Grand Tetons. So majestic, like nothing I could imagine. Our 1st stop was for a float trip down the Snake River, a 1076 mile long river from Yellowstone to meet up with the Columbia River in Oregon. There was no white water but was still thrilling. We saw numerous eagles and moose. We were very disappointed at first because the cloud cover was socked in and could not see the magnificent Grand Tetons. By the time we exited the river and visited the Park Visitor Center, the clouds lifted and there they were in all their splendor. The pics I have do not do them justice. On the way to Yellowstone, we stopped at Jenny Lake at the base of the Grand Tetons. How picturesque! On the way to Yellowstone, we saw a mama bblak bear and her 2 cubs along side the road. An added bonus once we go t to our lodging, a huge (and I mean HUGE) bull elk was munching on the grass in front of a neighboring lodge. We also we able to spot a grey wolf and another elk along side the road in one of the fields during the travels.
