7/27/19 – Saturday
We’d reserved 2 condos through WorldMark for our family gathering at Yellowstone this year. John was on the Internet the instant we were permitted to reserve our week -13 months before our arrival date. We’d wanted a 3 bedroom but those were already reserved. We put ourselves on a waiting list for that 3 bedroom, but no one ever canceled. I’m mentioning all this so you have a clue how difficult it can be to get reservations for a famous National Park stay. The best thing about our WorldMark condos for Yellowstone is that they are in the town West Yellowstone which is right at one of the borders of this park. Our 1 bedroom started on Saturday and the 2 bedroom for Justin and his family started on Sunday. So after driving 8 hours, stopping in Missoula for lunch and fuel at Costco, then more fuel at Ennis, we arrived and got settled in time for dinner. We asked when we checked in for suggestions for a good place to eat quickly, but not actually a fast food place. She recommended “Firehole BBQ”. Because the town is so small, we easily walked to our restaurant. I absolutely loved it. It was super fast. We perused the menu as we stood in the short line, then were handed our food and paid for it. Wonderful brisket for me (½ lb) with a side of coleslaw and a pulled pork sandwich with a side of beans for John. We kept half for another day. Great prices (for the area) and great food. I highly recommend them.
