Set a new record for me. Was -34 degrees.
Went to Old Faithful Inn to see the end of The Shining.
Note the elk.
Visibility basically zero.
The Tucker leading the way.
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.
Well it didn’t start off wonderful. The Bimmer wouldn’t start so had to get everything in the scooter car. With the snow, ice and cold the scooter was almost to its limit. All this slowed us down so we were cutting it close to make the snow coach. Not quite half way there the gas light came on. Since the scooter is new to me I wasn’t sure how long it would go with the light on, but we didn’t have time to stop and get gas. I was sweating bullets when I dropped Janet off to confirm our ride. On top of all of this work was pinging me about a trip in May that had to be sorted out just then. I was a wreck by the time I took my seat on the coach.
It really was like a completely different world. I will share the pictures as any words I would add would not do them justice.
