We pulled out of Grant Village in Yellowstone early this morning in hopes of more animals sightings on our way out the west entrance of the park. A couple cow elk, a bunch of bison, and several pronghorn were the total for the day – the pronghorn were in rangeland along the Madison River well outside of the park.
Most of the day was spent in rolling hills with a stream, creek, brook, or river in the bottom of the valley. While the waterways changed names throughout the day, the presence of water was a constant that BJ commented about. Lots of dories with fly fishermen, especially the first 90 miles or so.
We did join the freeway crowd for a couple hours this morning, but even that wasn’t busy. In fact, the busiest section of road was US200 with a lot of what appears to be Flathead Lake and Glacier NP departures.
Two spaces down is a 16’ Scamp that pulled in about 15 minutes before us. They’re from Oregon and took their Scamp to Alaska last year.
Tomorrow, we’ll pick up one or two people at the Kalispell airport. We’re expecting Spencer for several days, and Carleta may stay overnight if she can’t get a flight back out to Seattle.
