The drive over to Yellowstone was long. I'd never seen such straight and long roads, that just seemed to go on forever.
The journey was 9 hours and during that time, we saw some questionable places, like:
As the hours of the journey went by, the scenery started getting more varied. As we were driving into the mountains, we reached an altitude of 7,000 feet.
We finally arrived at Yellowstone! Hello Yogi and Booboo!
And to be authentic, we stayed in a log cabin.
Seeing as there was no WI-Fi, TV or anything, exploring the area was the only option.
The geysers in Yellowstone were fascinating, "Old Faithful" in particular. It erupted like clock work.
Here is a video (not my own) of Old Faithful, and shows how high it erupts.
There are also loads of other geysers surrounding Yellowstone.
We then went for a walk around the forest, which was pretty!
During our walk, we saw a Chipmunk, which we called Jeff (shout out to my dog Jeff, I miss him!).
On our way back home, we drove past some huge Bison, who didn't seem to have any road sense.
Later on in the day, we explored the more scenic parts of Yellowstone.
The next day
The next day, we headed to another National Park, Grand Teton National Park.
The mountains there were astonishing, even though Yellowstone and Grand Teton were right next to each other, they could not be anymore different.
