After setting off from Cody we drove the 60 odd miles to the Northeast park entrance. The scenery en-route was so good, when I said to Karen "Only 10 miles to the park" she replied "Wow, I thought we were already in it". I will let the photos speak for themselves with comments where appropriate.
|This guy and his daughter were picking up litter. His Mum, Dad and friends from the local snowmobile club were further up the road. This is typically American. Why can't we do this ?|
|A ridge where the Indians were chased over by the US Cavalry during the winter. It was in vain.|
|These guys were eating out of kids hands. Chipmunks are just so cute.|

We set of from the Lodge on the Lake and in the hut opposite us was an old Bentley that had been bought over from the UK with about 40 others to tour the USA and Canada. The poor chap put 4 gallons of diesel in it before realising his mistake. His excuse is that the fuel pump lines are black for petrol and green for diesel, the opposite to the UK. I could not criticise with my track record.
|Been there, done that !|

We drove slowly South towards an adjacent National Park, The Grand Teton. On the way there we saw these.
The Grand Teton is basically just a spectacular mountain range. Whilst there I looked over Wallace and found another broken spoke. Having already replaced 4 I now have no spares and we have 400 miles to rode before we can get some more. Fingers crossed !
After a quick loop of this park we headed back into Yellowstone and took these.
Then it was on to Old Faithful, the geyser.
