MELLOW YELLOWSTONE-Part I
When it got too cold to remain outdoors--temp headed for 37 degrees!--we retired to the RV, rearranged stuff and made our beds. It was cozy but the mortorhome accommodated 4 sleepers with careful maneuvering inside. One person snored lightly and one had a screamer nightmare.
The next day dawned sunny and windless and my early-bird sister and I took off for West Yellowstone 14 miles away to get coffee and internet, leaving the two late sleepers to awaken at a more leisurely pace.
Our first wildlife sighting was a lone bull grazing next to Madison River, creating a perfect reflection in the still, awakening dawn.
Ahhh--finally snagged McDonald's coffee and internet. McDonald's internet served about half of the town but did not offer a senior discount. Sharon checked in with her RV Park Manager pro tempore, Veronica (or just "V"), for her daily update of RV park shenanigans. Happily, there was little to report and we went in search of open shops and better coffee.
After having our fill of designer coffee, we went back into the park to join the late sleepers and begin our exploration of Yellowstone NP.
