How I spent my summer vacation.

I figured it was time to catch up the Blog. We had an exciting summer at Yellowstone National Park. We got seasonal jobs at Lionshead RV Resort near the West entrance to the park. We were just 7 miles from one of the world's most amazing and picturesque locations. We arrived at Lionshead on May 22. A week later on Memorial weekend we got 9 inches of snow. Our first camping guests were Tim and Sally Tutak, our good friends from forever. They arrived in their motorhome and stayed a few days. We had a couple of opportunities to travel into the Park. We saw lots of bison, some elk, bear and a coyote who was foraging (successfully) for his lunch.

We went to the Wolf and Grizzly Discovery Center in West Yellowstone, Montana. Very informative. We learned a lot about what happens when "stupid" humans do things such as leaving garbage accessible to bears, then they become accustomed to people food and then have to be destroyed or removed to a center such as this -- if there is room for them.
