Yellowstone National Park Drive Thru

We only had a few hours to do a drive thru of Yellowstone National Park.   We stopped a few times, but not nearly enough.   But I saw enough to know that I’d like to return again when I have more time to explore. 


It seems like we just keep seeing bigger and better things every new day.


Remnants from a forest fire.  This covered a lot of acres.

Traffic Jam  Shortly after we entered the park we ran across a traffic jam.  It seems that a herd of bison were crossing the roadway… and at their own  s l o w  pace.

After leaving Teton Naional Park we drove the longest 45 mile drive I ever did.  Much of the road is under construction and we were on gravel and dirt for what seemed like hours. 


We’re off on an early start Saturday heading towards home.  


Total miles logged so far:  Just over 2,000

WOW! Thank you so much for taking the time to post this trip. I don't travel well and I have never taking a trip just for the sake of traveling. (and most likely never will) So getting to read about this trip and been the highlight of my day since you have been on the road. I hope your blessed to take (and post about) a thousand more trips.

PS wasn't even a little bit scary to have such a HUGE wild animal that close while you were on a bike?
