Where I stayed
We looked for a campground in West Yellowstone but everything was full so ended up driving back west to something a little further out where we snagged the last site. Looked like lots of people were in the same situation.
It was Christabel's turn to make dinner and she had chosen to make French toast and crumbled sausage. We’d found some fresh gluten free bread at Whole Foods so I was able to eat with everyone.
By the time we’d parked in our site we were all a little cross; it was 10pm and we were all tired and hungry. Bel and I started getting her ingredients out when Charlotte asked if she could help. Bel said yes so I ducked out of the way. Charlotte and Bel mad wonderful French toast together, consulting each other over various steps. This is really what makes our trips so great, the time together and the bonds that form.
We knew that we wouldn’t have lots of time in Yellowstone but thought that if we could leave by 5pm we’d get into the reunion in time. NOT!!! Why didn’t I think this thru? 1st of all when we get into National Parks Christabel loves to get her Junior Ranger designation and it was no different here. Getting this badge takes time so we spent several hours doing this and Charlotte joined her.
We did see Old Faithful erupt several times and sat on the veranda at the lodge people watching and geyser watching while girls finished badge projects. When they were finished and had taken the Junior Ranger Oath we got back to the RV for a picnic lunch. We wanted to do a walk but then couldn’t find the spot called Morning glory Pool. I looked at maps and decided that Mammoth Falls would be interesting and since it is at the north exit, the exit we needed to take it seemed like a good choice.
If you have never been to Mammoth Falls in Yellowstone it is a must do
Elias made our dinner on the road of potato soup with Rosemary, his creation. I’d never had potato soup with rosemary sprigs in it and it was surprisingly good!
