Day 5. South Yellowstone to Montana

Today was dedicated to checking out Yellowstone. We headed north and of course stopped at Old Faithful. My favorite is the Lodge that is built from local logs. We hiked around the geysers for an hour of so before getting back on the road.

Buffalo chillin in the sun.

Along the way we managed to see quite a large number of bison, elk, some deer, and one bear. The bear was at quite a distance, but its easy to find them… A group of rangers are nearby to ensure no one does something that will get someone hurt. Along the way we found three sets of bear-rangers in the park.

Nice bear track

We exited on the northwest corner in Montana and about 30 minutes up the road we are free-camping at Carbella Recreation Site. Fajitas for dinner and some huckleberry scones for desert (Cooked in the dutch oven).
