9/9/16 (Friday) in West Yellowstone, MT ( Yellowstone Holiday RV Campground – $42/night, N side)
We followed the lower circle of the Grand Circle, partly to check out the best road to take to Cody on our next travel day. The conclusion is the upper half is shorter, with better roads, thus the best choice. It’s downside is there are more wildlife viewing congestion moments, but we’ll take that.
This place is HUGE, so it requires hours of driving. Ah, but it’s beauty and unique features are worth it. Here are what we saw:
Lots of Geysers:
On our way to our next stop, we spotted some Trumpeter Swans
I’ve included photos of the Falls that I took both in the late afternoon of this day and the morning of the next. We headed for Miss Journey after our visit to Artist’s Point. Unfortunately, this was also a great time for animals to come out for dinner, so our path was obstructed by heavy traffic congestion due to people stopping in/by the road for photo ops. John, good rule follower that he is, wouldn’t stop in the road and there weren’t any available pull over sites for us, so we didn’t get any pictures. It took until 6:30 to get home, almost 2 hours from when we left Artist’s Point. Boy were we tired!
