Trip Report Through Yellowstone to the OTO dude ranch

Jump to last reply

A few months ago I applied for and was accepted for a Passport in Time project.
I left home very early on Saturday 8/10/13. I drove US 20 through eastern Oregon through Ontario. I got over the Snake River into Idaho about noon Mountain time.
I took I-84, I-86 and I-15 to get to my motel in Idaho Falls.
I got another early start and took a little detour through Rigby to see the town where television was invented.
I stopped at the DQ in West Yellowstone for some lunch before heading into Yellowstone.
I did the research for some Earth Caches which is a type of geocache allowed in National Parks. I hung around the Old Faithful visitor center until time for the 5:12 eruption of Old Faithful. I also gathered the information I needed for a virtual geocache which was at a cemetery in Yellowstone south of Mammoth Hot Springs. There were at least 20 elk on the yards in Mammoth.
From Mammoth I went down the 5 miles to Gardiner, MT. I had a late dinner at Subway.
As I was driving across the bridge over the Yellowstone River, there was an elk in my lane coming toward me. I stopped and she walked past me in the southbound lane.
Monday morning I showed up to meet the other PIT volunteers at the Ranger Station.
After our briefing, we all drove out to the OTO which is about 2 miles up Cedar Creek from the highway. The OTO was founded by Dick Randle as the first licensed dude ranch in Montana. During the week, we put on many squares of cedar shingles on the main lodge. All in all it was a great week except the time that it rained and the lightning was nearby. To be continued...
