Day Thirty Six: West Yellowstone

We woke a bit on the later side, and headed up the hill a bit with our chairs to find an area with a view of the lake to enjoy our coffee. It was a lovely start to our morning. We packed up our site, and then headed into the town of West Yellowstone to a new campground where we could shower and do a bit of laundry. It was only 5 minutes from the entrance of the National Park, so it made our plans for going to the Park early in the morning the following day much more manageable. We joke about the KOA’s being the Walmart’s of campgrounds, but sometimes it is nice to know what you’re going to get! We did arrived at our new home for the day, did some laundry, and then headed downtown to check out the area! The town was special, my favorite store was an Indian shop, and of course I started crying reading the bison masacre history. We got an appetizer and beer at a pub called the Slipper Otter. Our beers were delicious! However we wouldn’t go back to that pub, it wasn’t anything special.

After visiting the town, we headed back to camp to hang out, read, and soak up the hot tub! We met some lovely new friends from St.Louis and had a great time talking with them. Afterwards we showered and just had some simple vegetable Amy’s soup for dinner. My picture taking is lagging, and I apologize, however I’m sure we will have plenty to share on tomorrow’s adventure! Early wake up call and planned McDonald’s breakfast. Don’t judge us.
