We woke early and I took the boys for a walk, during which expressed an intense interest in meeting the horses who were also staying at the same RV park.
We loaded up and Rufus assumed his usual spot just behind the driver (to insure that we took no wrong turns).
We drove into the Wyoming Rockies, and the scenery began to get increasingly dramatic.
After we crossed the Continental Divide, we caught our first glimpse of the Grand Tetons.
We drove into the valley of the Snake River, the views continued to be jaw dropping.
We also started to see buffalo along the road. The boys expressed intense interest in these, and we promised to see if we could arrange a closer inspection.
We arrived in Jackson, WY and took in the famous elk horn arch on the main square. Rufus wondered where the owners of all these sets of horns had gone.
The boys also got to inspect a stuffed buffalo.
After a walk around town, we loaded up and drove north, past Jackson Lake.
We arrived at the gates of Yellowstone, and drove path Lewis Lake, still partially frozen even in early June.
We arrived at the National Park complex at Old Faithful just in time to see the geyser erupt.
As we continued to drive through the park, we continued to see lots of wildlife. It being calving season, there were lots of buffalo calves to enjoy.
Kelly even got an up close picture of an elk cow before we exited the park and continued our drive home to Seattle.
