Yellowstone in the snow and rain.

5 photos in this post. Although we did change our plans and decide to stay on the eastern side of Yellowstone for an extra day, thus pushing all our other campsite bookings forward one day, we decided to head into Yellowstone today and explore the area from Fishing Bridge all the way up to Mammoth Springs. Having read an RV article sharing the realities of driving through Yellowstone with a big rig, the... read more

Brrr….. it’s cold here!

However there were still a couple sights we wanted to see so on our way back we stopped at Big Bend to take some photos, hopping off one shuttle and getting back on the next one.
