Day 19 June 28
This was one freakin’ spectacular day!!!! Why? Because Yellowstone is so freakin’ gigantic and so freakin’ amazing!!!
I drove through Yellowstone 30 years ago, on my way from Calgary to Atlanta (weird…yes…just was where I was and where I got a car to drive to). I only saw a tiny fraction of the park back then, and it was so long ago that I barely remember it. So, this was really just like my first time there.
We spent all day driving the loop road, 156 miles total, and stopping at different spots to hike around and see the sights. It was a non-stop feast for the eyes and senses.
The weather was pretty fickle, and we experienced everything from sun, to rain, to hail (yes, it hailed on us again!). The weather was constantly changing throughout the day. But it worked out great. It’d be pouring rain, and we’d wait in the RV for 5-10 minutes until it stopped raining. Then the sun would come out, and we’d go have a look around. And then it’d start raining (or hailing) again. Couldn’t have asked for more perfect timing!
I’m assuming that, due to the weather, a lot of people probably stayed home this weekend. And that was good for us, as it cut way down on the number of tourists in the park. Again, impeccable timing!
