Yesterday was a day of travel and site-seeing. We left our motel after a big breakfast at a restaurant and started to make the 110 mile or so journey to Gardiner. This is a slow drive since it's coming through the Grand Teton National Park, John Rockefeller Parkway, and Yellowstone National Park. So traffic moves slowly and we're stopping. We stopped at that visitor center at Colter Bay and this was the first time many of the boys bought souvenirs, so leader Jeff (our banker) had a busy hour handling transactions. We then headed on up the parkway toward Yellowstone when it wasn't long before we saw the first herd of bison. That made quite an impression - and within a minute so an antelope. Later on we saw a few more bison, and look forward to seeing more great wildlife as we explore Yellowstone over the next few days.
After leaving, we headed through the northern section of the park (which includes the geyser basin) to our motel home for the next four nights in Gardiner, MT where we walked to dinner through the small town along the Yellowstone River where we enjoyed great pizza at the K-Bar - a Gardiner landmark since 1953.
