    Today, drove 9 hours from Ouray, CO to Pinedale, WY. Spending the night at a airbnb and tomorrow going to visit and do the whole of Teton National Park.

    The drive today was uneventful. But 191 from Vernal, UT was pretty scenic.

    Alright. I was down in Telluride for a Jazz fest and I was hauling 2 women with me. And I punched a hole in my gas tank in my 1951 Chevy. We limped back to town and I parked out in front of a house so I could repair the tank. The women were invited inside and the old guy was a retired Welsh miner. Sometimes you meet some of the best people out there.

    Today I did the whole of Grand Teton National Park. It was truly an experience. Then it was time to get into Yellow Stone and drive to our hotel in Gardiner, MT.

    Yellowstone is about 138 square miles. Driving from the south to the north, a distance of only about 150 miles took me over 4 hours. The speed limit is 45 and worse when traffic confront of you meets wildlife. Then it becomes almost a standstill with people stepping out to take pictures.

    People have been warned time and again not to get very close to the wild animals. But all the animals we saw, people got to arms length with the animals to take selfies or have friends or family take their pictures. Luckily I did not see any animal attacks.


    On my way to hotel, I stopped watch Old Faithful erupt. It was quite an experience. I mean, we all have watched it on YouTube or other shows so many times that I was not surprised when it erupted. But it was just the feeling of being there that made it feel different. The anticipation was fun as people started the wave and that entertained the crowd and turned into cheers when the geyser started erupting.


    People getting too close to the animals. And basically cornering them, which easily can put them in a state of defence since they have no escape route. So, they may easily charge at the tourists. But no animal charged at tourists even thought they were too close to them.

    Yeah, some people do not listen much. Today, the sanekind of thing happened. It was a bison.

    Appeared on the side of the road and normal reaction of everyone is to come to a complete stop and take out their cameras to take pictures. Then the bison majestically walked infront of my car and went to a guy on his bike. The bison really got very close to the guy, we thought it may hit him. But then walked away and walked confront of me for what seemed like 5 minutes and by then I had a long line of cars behind me.



    The bison walked confront of me for about 5 minutes before getting off the road. By then there was atleast 20ncars behind me. And when I passed the bison, the cars far behind me had to stop next to it to take pictures. Traffic was crazy as the people on the opposite lane too were stopping.

    Yellowstone...

    Roosevelt Arch at the north entrance

    The best stop after watching Old Faithful. You need to come here.


    There was this group of men and women all dressed in white. They would just walk up and stand together and be meditating or praying. It was quite an attraction as everybody seem to get a picture of them.
