It was time to leave Jackson Hole and journey to Yellowstone, so we said goodbye to Poot and Kim, Sally and Boudreaux…
It came up a quick storm right before we left, then the clouds cleared out as we went along.
Our destination for the afternoon was the Elephant Head Lodge outside the East Entrance of Yellowstone so we took the loop towards the right past Fishing Bridge. The road follows Yellowstone Lake and there are several nice pullouts where you can stop and have a picnic – which we did.
I was quite surprised as I sat eating my sandwich, when a little gray bird landed on my shoe!
Our next excitement was a buffalo jam in the meadow area by the lake.
There were lots of bulls fighting, some bulls chasing cows, some calves nursing mamas in the middle of the road…
That’s all for now.. next up, we arrive at Elephant Head Lodge for the night in the Wapiti Valley.
