BBQ and Arch Festival

Found a BBQ place in Emigrant. The owner was from Georgia. They had really good food. Loved this sign.

Had some fun at a local festival at Arch Park, when I wasn’t on a work call about phones and data being down at an RV park.

Had a quick rain shower when we were in the local market and got to see this cool rainbow when we walked out.

Out to hike the Beaver Ponds

A view of the Mammoth Hot Springs

The wild flowers are lovely.

A view towards Gardiner.

A view towards Mammoth.

In the home stretch of the hike.

And then we found the elk. Had to navigate around them carefully.

This is a close view of Mammoth Hot Springs. You can compare this to the first picture of the same area just from a higher point.

While we were out hiking the boys were resting up for a night of torture the humans.

Heading out to the Bear Tooth Highway

Starting things off right with a Bison jam. One baby in the road.

Do you see the big nest near the center of the picture? It was an Osprey’s nest and one was in it.

Just a little Yellowstone Lama Drama…

This was a beautiful spot with the lake and mountains.

This was an amazing vista.

Can you spot the person on the bicycle in the center of the picture. They were some hard core people. They were going from about 6,000 feet to a little over 10,000 feet. Total distance is 63.5 miles. David I think this one may one up the Indy Hilly Hundred.

The views continue to be amazing.

The background is some amazing it looks fake.

A fair amount of snow left for it to be July 14th.

We found the Bear’s Tooth, can you?

Train car road side eatery. The food was really good.

Few turkeys crossing the street. Nice to see them obeying traffic laws and using the crosswalk.

A good view of how the highway twits around the mountain.

A lot of snow left here. I don’t think it is all going to melt before it starts snowing again.

It looked like a cable car line was here. Maybe this is a ski spot in the winter?

Maybe it is a ski spot now?

What I was thinking were ground hogs are really yellow bellied marmots. Can you see the one left of the hole?

Just a few bison on the return trip.

The babies are starting to grow up.

Hey, how’s it going?

This guy was hanging out near the house.

4th of July in Mammoth, Wyoming

The parade will a little different and smaller.

While the city didn’t do fireworks the people did. Not just your Roman Candles that you buy on the side of the road. One person down the road from us bought over $5000 dollars worth of fireworks. The show was as good as any I have seen. Just odd looking at them on the horizon and not above me.
