We get a lot of out of town visitors that are completely enamored of the West, our scenery and lifestyle. Yesterday, I took my mother and sister to Yellowstone and we did the northern loop.
Started off with the beautiful drive through Paradise Valley. In Gardiner, we stopped at the Yellowstone Forever store to pick up a map, find out conditions in the park and pick up a souvenir.
Our destination was the Canyon and Falls. We took the Tower road and went over Dunraven pass. There was snow tipping the mountains but roads were clear – an absolutely stunning drive with the blue sky! The Falls and Canyon did not disappoint and it was so nice to enjoy it with just a few fall visitors instead of the tourist crowds of summer.
Next we headed back up towards Mammoth Springs. That is such an interesting geological site and we enjoyed learned about it as we walked while checking our guide book.
Next, we went up Sage Lodge where we enjoyed a great happy hour menu, drinks and more beautiful views.
All in all, a great tourist day, good for visitors and locals alike!
