West Yellowstone, MT just outside Yellowstone National Park

I am sorry to hear that my absence has alarmed my most stalwart readers. We have been deep within Yellowstone National Park for the past two nights, and I am afraid that wi-fi is not included in our campsite package.

We entered Montana moments ago and are currently at a pizza internet cafe. This will be a quick post, as I am paying by the minute for internet connectivity. Accordingly, please excuse any deficit in tight writing or well-crafted wit.

We spent this afternoon on horseback in parts of the park guides tell us are seen by less than 2% of visitors. My trusty mount, Buddy, safely took me alongside a steep cliff with a breathtaking view.

Prior to hitting the trail, we descended over 350 steps deep into the "Grand Canyon of Yellowstone" where an ever-present rainbow presides over a steep waterfall..

The park is teeming with bison and wildlife, although a moose sighting still eludes us.

We have seen dozens of vibrantly colored guysers, and have twice witnessed Old Faithful's blast.We will return to the park for one more night and will head to Jackson, WY and onward into Idaho tomorrow, where I hope to post further updates, stats and pictures!

It approacing prime time for creature viewing so I am off in search of moose.

Looks like everyone is happy! I'm glad you are all having a great time. My parents love that part of the country. Hope to go one day myself. Be safe. Celeste
