We arrived in Yellowstone late and were greeted with a campsite completely covered in snow. You would think since it was close to July it would be melted; however, at 8,300 ft we learned that is to be expected. Tiredly, we set up camp and went to sleep so we would have the energy to try to see as much as possible the following day.
We woke up early and started our Yellowstone Journey. The park is extensive and diverse. We were a little disappointed that Theo was unable to partake in many of the activities, since he was not allowed 100 ft outside of the parking lots, which also impeded what we were able to do, and for how long.
Considering this was our first time in Yellowstone we found it to be a good starting point to become familiar with the park. We look forward to returning.
Our favorite spots were the bright orange bacteria mats along with all the wildlife throughout the park.
