Yellowstone I




The road from Montana into Yellowstone.  On the far right of
this picture is the devil's slide.



This is Gardiner, MT, a small town that rest at the northern entrance
to the park.  Kristin and I went white water rafting here last year.



Right when we entered the park at Mammoth, we saw a bunch of
female elk.  Here are two scurrying away with a couple of classic cars.



These elk commandeered a picnic area in Mammoth.

We found a great little picnic spot between Mammoth and Roosevelt

Storm was brewing, it wound up rolling in right as we
were taking an ice cream break



We saw this black bear cub from about 5 feet away
