  • Day10

    Yellowstone I

    July 11, 2017 in the United States

    Day nine: This night we slept in our car because there was a huge thunderstorm. But we slept well and hey the car was cleaned again. In the morning we went into the forest where we watched the work of the rangers to look up the grown species of plants. After an hour we went back to our car driving in the direction of Yellowstone. The landscape changed so quickly. Suddenly there were nothing than died plants and the whole landscape turned dry. It was a very beautiful view. When we arrived at Cody right in front of the national park we visited a gun store. It was very impressive 'cause in Germany we don't have public stores like that. Afterwards we wanted to visit the Old Trail Town. But it seems nothing special to us so we didn't want to pay entry for that.
    In the Yellowstone we was looking for a campground. On the road we saw about four bisons 🐂 next to the road and the Yellowstone Lake 🏞 Because all campgrounds are full we found some kind Mexican that allowed us to park behind their vehicle on their camping pit. The next camping night for free (actually the third) 🙈
    We met a few people who are moving from Oregon to Texas and combine that with a roadtrip. So they travel with a truck with their belongings in it. Pretty cool!
    At the end of the day we watched an interesting presentation about the animals which live in the park.

    Transition Day

    September 1, 2017 in the United States

    Today we drove east across Yellowstone to settle into our new campground, Bridge Bay. It's actually a huge campground, some 450 sites, but each loop is separated and it feels quiet (and private since we are on the furthest loop). The campground sits right across from the lake and has a huge marina where you can take tours or rent boats.

    In the evening we took a driving tour around the northwest part of the lake. We saw the famous Lake Hotel (in yellow) and the Lake Lodge (interior shown with log beams). Any of these hotels would be awesome to stay at!Read more
