The Inn was quiet at 5:30 am… Quite peaceful from the hussle and bustle of the years of tourists coming and going. The oldest National Park and the original classic Park Inn…
I wrote Post Cards and sat and obsorbed.. Dylan was up and it was time to hit the Breakfast Buffet for another feedathon. We took our time walking among the hot pools of water…. Boiling hot… All so beautiful……. Luring and deadly….. life……
I was pedaling north to Madison at 1:00 then west to West Yellowstone… The Bison could care less about me or the cars… There were newly born baby bisons…. Nursing……
Soon the rain returned and I cruised along the Madison River into West Yellowstone.
State eight as I entered Montana…. WoW…… I needed to pick up a replacement for my Mountain Hardware jacket. The zipper was broken and is an important part of my gear.. Clint from UPS and Ben from Freeheel and Wheel helped me receive my jacket… Lots of coordination to pick up a box. Unfortunately I ordered the wrong size andour needed to sent it back. Made it to the post office as they were closing for the night… Another distraction that is just part of the game… Dylan and Marty rode into town with great stories of their ride from McGeyser….
It was the start of Memorial Day weekend and the town was packed full… We ate first dinner at the Pizza Joint as the storm clouds built.. Then to McDonald’s for second dinner as the rain storm blew by. It finally cleared and we headed north at 9:30 pm and made it to Bakers Hole Campground. It was full so we tented by a bear storage bin as the rain fell…..
