Our campsite at West YellowsStone KOA

The good news...the sun was out this morning. The bad was COLD. We were thankful for the sunshine and took off to Yellowstone.

We drove in the south entrance through plowed roads with walls of snow on both sides. Only 4 campgrounds are open and they are trying to get more open by June 2. We drove to Old Faithful and put on our winter coats and gloves to go watch her erupt. It was 34 degrees. We drove through the scenic areas and headed out the West entrance. We spent a week in Yellowstone before the wildfires of 1988. It amazing to see how much had burned.

The only wildlife we saw was buffalo and a chipmonk/squirrel.

We didn't go far. We are camped at the West Yellowstone KOA. It is a large beautiful campground and is set up for families. It has an indoor pool, bike rentals, fudge shop, ice cream espresso kiosk and great campsites with wood swings. A little pricey at $50+ a night. You pay for all the amenities. We did some cleaning as we have been walking in mud, snow and rain for the last 2 days.

Not sure of our goal for tomorrow. We are heading North and trying to stay out of the flood areas.
