Hovis at the Continental Divide :)

2 photos in this post. Traveling from West Thumb to Old Faithful takes you over the Continental Divide not once but twice! Yes, the Continental Divide actually loops up and back down again in a few short miles. Stopping at the western one by Isa Lake we got out to look at all the lily pads.

A storm came through and although the awnings have automatic sensors we believe the wind took the one before it had a chance to retract. (We are WAY MORE vigilant now, retracting them ourselves when we think a storm is coming!) It has taken all this time for things to get sorted and a new one to... read more
