Entering Yellowstone Park

We had breakfast with Pam and Werner before leaving Cody on Tuesday morning. We made a short visit to the Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody. This is a world class museum with all sorts of memorabilia about the plains indians and their way of life, plus Buffalo Bill Cody’s life. We didn’t have enough time to do the museum justice, as we had to check out of our park by 11:00 a.m. We filled up with diesel, LP, and supplies before heading into Yellowstone. We had lunch by the Buffalo Bill Reservoir outside of Cody. We saw another moose near Wapiti, Wyoming. Some Big horn sheep, etc. There is hardly any traffic going into the park so we made a leisurely trip.

Our first look at Yellowstone Lake was a treat. The Lake is still completely frozen over. You can see some ice receding from the shore, a few feet out into the lake. It was quite a site to see that large a water mass completely frozen over.

We arrived at Fishing Bridge Campground inside Yellowstone Park around 2:00 p.m. Again, traffic is light. We got settled into our site and watched the other rigs come in during the afternoon. We have no electricity, but we do have water. We use the house battery for lighting, plus a Coleman lantern that Allan and Cat gave us. We stay warm by using the LP gas for heat, and I cook with the LP gas. We took a walk around the campground, but we had our eyes out for bears because upon check-in, the lady told us there are bears out and in the campground. We never saw a bear, but you can bet we had our eyes peeled and stayed inside most of the time. The temperature is moderate during the day and very cold at night. We also watched a DVD movie for the evening. So we have all the comforts of home.

Tomorrow we will drive the upper loop in the park and look for wildlife.

Stay tuned. Bonnie
