(Come to think of it, I had dinner with Tater that night in Missoula.) Where are you staying- in the park?
I really like Yellowstone- I think I drove in/out the places you mention the first time I went there, but I was just rolling through.
So I text him the other day and told him what he did @ our last sons birth broke me and the I need him to say he loves me.
We are planning a trip through Yellowstone Park in early October.
(Plus four nights back country camping, but that's a whole different thing.) The rooms (they call 'em cabins) weren't anything to write home about at either, but quite adequate (at least to our modest needs).
I liked Lake better- main building was older and had more charm, not to mention the view of the lake, which you could see from the front porch- where you were allowed to bring beers from the bar.
Sounds like fun Doug.....us some good pics to look at!
