Yellowstone National Park, WY

Campsite

Boris at our campsite overlooking Cody, WY on the way into Yellowstone.

We spent three days exploring Yellowstone National Park.  It was a bit of a shock to go from the peace and tranquility of Ten Sleep Canyon to the tourist crazy Yellowstone, but it was worth it to see this beautiful place.  We spent our days visiting geothermal areas, hiking, viewing wildlife, and driving around this massive park.  We also took a detour up to Montana for a night in the Gallatin National Forest.

Mmmm, sulfur.  While the features were cool to look at, they were a bit stinky.
