We've arrived in Yellowstone

Today we drove 638.9 miles from St. George, Utah to West Yellowstone, Montana. Our northern location is very apparent by the light sky at 10:00pm. On the way here we saw our first wildlife: buffalo, a bald eagle, horses, cows, and sheep. We have seen a dramatic change of temperature. Yesterday it was 110 degrees outside of Baker, CA. When we left Utah this morning it was 91 degrees. Right now it's 47 degrees and rainy. We've got our fingers crossed for good weather tomorrow when we explore Yellowstone National Park.

I'm sure being on the computer is the last thing you want to be doing after you both finish another 500 mile day of driving, but I would love to seem some pictures to accompany the text if you have the ability.

It sounds like you are off to a great start. I'm really envious of your bald eagle sighting.

Hey, what mountain is that in the background of your blog? I'm assuming that's Denali, is that right? Eddie

Each day we plan on posting photos, and then we are just too exhausted by the time we stop. Hopefully we'll make time to do that soon. The bald eagle was just sitting on the side of the road, something I've never seen them do before. Once we got close it flew away, so we only got some photos of that, but it was really cool! I'm not sure what mountain is in the background, I'm embarrassed to say. I just found the image online, but there was no caption, and I thought it looked perfect for the blog!

Very cool! I trust Old Faithful is still going off like clockwork. Cheers!
