We left the hotel at 11:15 AM; it was 61 degrees and smoky. We got gas, ice and breakfast and headed south. When we travel, if we can’t find a local cafe to get breakfast, we will go to McDonald’s. It is a pet peeve of mine to get an Egg McMuffin like this one. Is it really that hard to get the ham, cheese, egg and muffin centered?
On our drive down to Yellowstone, we saw this eagle. Majestic!
We drove to Yellowstone National Park. It obviously was pretty busy as the line to get in was 1/2 to 3/4 mile long.
We saw on the park map a 6 mile dirt road, so we took it. It was a nice drive but we had hoped to see some wildlife.
Back on the main road we did see some bison and some beautiful scenery.
After leaving the park, we drove through the Big Horn mountains on our way to Sheridan.
Along the way, we were stopped for road construction. You can’t really see from this photo, but just past where we were stopped, half of the road was gone.
We stayed the night in Sheridan at the Best Western. Tommy walked across the road to a food truck and brought hot dogs and brats.
4414 miles driven.
