The steps are somewhere under this layer of ice. Good thing we aren’t carrying heavy equipment….
Well this is where we need to get into for the Lake Lodge, so that isn’t going to happen today.
Headed home after four days. This is Lake Hotel.
Stopped to stretch my legs at this spot. A lot of ducks and a few swans.
On the way over to Lake in an area still closed to the public we rounded a corner and a grizzly bear was in the road. it ran up the hill and into the woods before I could get a picture. He is behind the trees in this picture, but you can see his tracks going into the woods.
The snow drift looks like ocean waves.
Working in hotels with no power can be a little off putting at times.
I feel the urge to run across the frozen lake to the island in the middle.
The lake is still frozen.
The snow pack is taller than me.
Going out to do setup work in the park. Can’t go through the park without 4WD so we have a convoy of three vans and two cars going up and down. Going into Yellowstone from West Yellowstone. Will be staying in the park until Thursday with a goal of getting Old Faithful Inn, Old Faithful Lodge, Snow Lodge, Lake Hotel and Lake Lodge setup.
Fist time I have seen snow being cut up with a lumberjack saw.
Odd seeing Snow Lodge with no people.
My very own grumpy cat.
The sun is trying to come out.
Well I have had a buffalo jam in a lot of places, but this is a first on the hill headed to the house. Interesting navigating by them in scooter car.
Up for a game of cat and mouse?
