Yellowstone National Park is the world’s first national park and one of the largest with over 2 million acres and we enjoyed a lot of those acres yesterday. We spent almost ten hours exploring different areas of the park from the beauty of Yellowstone Lake to the magnificent falls and geysers. We seen osprey, eagles, bison, elk, bear, deer, coyote and several small animals. We seen fisherman fishing for cutthroat trout (Eric you would have loved it). Judy had to swerve to keep from hitting a deer that jumped in front of us. Even though there were a lot of people around we never seemed like we were crowded and I am glad we are here now because this weekend is free to all comers, and will probably be very crowded. Tomorrow we are heading to Old Faithful and hopefully we will see the last of the animals that have avoided us, Moose and wolves.
