We moved on from Butte to Livingston which was close to the Northern Gate into Yellowstone Park.
Arrived at Osen’s RV Park and got set up.
While we were eating we noticed that there were 5 chicks on the ground and the mother trying to feed them all!!
Livingston was chosen as it was close (in American terms) to the North entrance to Yellowstone National Park.
After looking at the maps it looked like we would have to make at least 3 visits in order to cover it all.
So we set off on visit one. Even getting there was interesting with the Yellowstone River running alongside the road all the way and numerous trout fishing areas.
And then we were in the Park. I think this is the most magnificent place we have been, but you, the viewer, will have to decide for yourself.
We had a day’s rest and then did the bigger loop to see Old Faithful.
A hot spring called Beryl. Temperature is between 188.5F (87C) and 192F (89C) so don’t take a bath!!
At this point we turned towards Livingston and thought the Jordan curse of seeing no wildlife had hit again and then out of the corner of my eye as we passed a picnic area………
So we returned to the campsite after a meal in a cowboy grill in Gardiner just outside the Park.
For our third visit we decided to go along the Lamar valley where we were told we had the best chance of seeing bear.
And that was the end of our visits to Yellowstone, still no bear, but lots of other animals and seeing Bison was a treat.
Then we moved on to Billings so I could see the Battle of Liitle Bighorn National Monument.
