We woke up early two Sundays ago to start the drive north to Yellowstone. On the way up we decided to take I-25 to Casper and then US-20 all the way into the park through Thermopolis and Cody. We had lunch at the Thermopolis Cafe, which was a nice little home cooking place. We also stopped near Cody to check out the Buffalo Bill Dam. From there it was on to Yellowstone, which we entered through the East Entrance station.
Once inside, we continued the drive along US-20 toward our destination for the night, the Old Faithful Inn. We stopped along the way at the Lake Butte Overlook, Mary Bay, a hike along the Storm Point Trail, and some wildlife spottings around the Fishing Bridge Junction and the West Thumb Geyser Basin. Eventually me made it to the inn, though it was a little later than I was expecting it to be. The park had already captivated us and we had only just begun. Fortunately we were able to catch an eruption of Old Faithful just after sunset, before having dinner at the Old Faithful Inn Dining Room. From there it was off to get some sleep for an early morning again the next day.
