No Bears! - 10/08/2008






Today we went to Yellowstone…the drive was mighty scenic we stopped for lots of photo opportunities, At the various Geysers we took a number of hikes to points of interest.. the overwhelming aroma was of Sulphur ( Rotten eggs & Burnt rubber ).


At one point we left the car to visit a specific geyser & walked straight past a mighty Bison Warming himself by the roadside.

Further along we stopped at an overlook & witnessed a herd of Bison on the plains taking mud baths & fighting , Mothers were leading their young & teaching them.

Ian took a strenuous hike to view the water falls in Yellowstone’s own version of the grand canyon, When he reappeared we thought he might need CPR!

Sadly we were unable to find any bears. We did see Elk, Chipmunks , Canada geese, Mule Deer & of course the Bison.

We are spending the night in Gardiner near mammoth springs & are currently in diner style Chinese scoffing noodles.

Our Search for the elusive bear will continue tomorrow.
