Since we were only 20 minutes from Yellowstone for the past 10 days, we have since moved onto Bozeman, MT. we decided to do A Day Trip in Yellowstone National Park. We got up early Tuesday morning in the hopes of beating the crowds, and getting some good light. Our first stop was the midway geyser basin. This is where the Grand prismatic is, and I was hoping to get some shots of it.
It was a chilly morning, right around 40 degrees, and as we approached the thermal area, we could see the steam coming from all the different vents. Pretty interesting sight. People always think the Native Americans must have been confused by this area, because they assume they didn’t understand. I think it was just the opposite. I think the white explorers found this area, and were scared to death because they couldn’t comprehend what was happening.
We stopped in the fountain paint pot area first. There are several hot pools here, and small geysers. Since it was cold it was really steamy, which was a fun way to see it.
Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, MT
We are currently boondocking about 15 minutes from West Yellowstone. We wanted to stay here again, so we could visit the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, MT.
We went to the Grizzly and Wolf center a couple years ago, and really enjoyed it. Obviously I would rather see animals in their natural habitat, but I also understand the role places like this have in the world. Educating the public on bear activity, bear safety, and the lives they lead is top priority at the center. The bears, and wolves who live at the discovery center, are there for various reasons. The bears were either orphaned because their mom got in trouble, or they are bears that repeatedly got in trouble themselves. They would no doubt have been put down, if places like this didn’t take them in.

Traveling full time has made me more aware of the need for comfort, especially on travel days. So I was excited to have the opportunity to try out the Comfy and Stylish Travel Clothing from prAna.
I like clothing that gives me comfort for long hours of driving, and is also perfect for stopping for lunch.
