Sister and I returned a couple of days ago from our trip. It was great. lots of rain but that didn't stop us. Saw lots of elk and bison , some with babies. also big horns, herds of deer pronghorns and a big grizzly as well as several moose.We did't make it to Lamar Valley due to a big storm when we were on our way so we didn't see any wolves. Rivers were running very fast and full, so waterfalls were especially beautiful, but several meadows were flooded and some smaller in-park roads were closed.

Brunch at Lake hotel was very good as were the lunches we ate at OF Inn. We also enjoyed the pizza and salad at the marina at Jackson Lake.


We stayed 2nights each in cabins at West Yellowstone and Gardner, and Motel 6 in Jackson. Enjoyed all three towns and what they offered. Planned our itinerary to focus on the park areas around those towns. Instead of staying in Cody we opted to stay in
valley west of town. Good decision. It was a great trip with my best friend.


All in all, a wonderful trip with my best friend.
