#711 Yellowstone or Bust!

After 1,500 miles in one week, we've arrived in Yellowstone National Park!

Along our route, we visited two Frank Lloyd Wright buildings, two libraries, two art museums, and many hospitable friends.  We saw a handful of tumbleweeds and too-many-to-count hawks, antelope, bison, elk, and mule deer.  (Our trip photos are here.)

My favorite part of the drive was the Wind River Canyon in Wyoming - a scenic canyon made from tectonic plate shifting not carved by the Wind River.

We are now at home in our Yellowstone housing at Mammoth Hot Springs.

This morning, we awoke to more snow and a few bison wandering around the neighborhood.  After Missouri's non-existent winter, we're enjoying the Yellowstone winter and all that comes with that.

Tomorrow, it is back to work for us as we begin volunteering at the Heritage and Research Center in Gardiner.

Yours in transitioning from one cool library (at Crystal Bridges) to another,
Mary Jo
