Geysers, Grizzlies, and Grandeur -- Yellowstone National Park August 30 - September 5




Geysers, Grizzlies, and Grandeur --
Yellowstone National Park

August 30 – September 5, 2013

Join FROG in the splendor of Yellowstone National Park. Resting in the cone of an ancient volcano, Yellowstone is like no other place on earth. Ringed by spectacular mountains and featuring the largest Alpine lake on earth, it astounds at every turn. From gurgling and erupting geysers to bubbling “paint pots”; from placid lakes to roaring waterfalls thundering into deep chasms; from broad, expansive valleys to towering pinnacles, the landscape defies description.

Bison and elk graze at nearly every turn, sometimes strolling along the roads throughout the park and creating traffic jams. The more elusive grizzly and black bears, wolves, coyotes, and other predators might reward you with a sighting. The beautiful lodges welcome you to gracious dining.

You really have to experience Yellowstone to believe it. As part of your Yellowstone experience, you’ll enjoy
  • Six nights of full-hookup camping at Lion's Head Resort, just outside of West Yellowstone, MT and about ten minutes from the West Entrance to Yellowstone National Park
  • Welcome dinner /orientation
  • Labor Day holiday cookout
  • Two hot breakfasts
  • One continental breakfast
  • Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center
  • IMAX Theater introduction to Yellowstone
  • Wild West Rodeo
  • Farewell dinner and show
  • Time to sightsee on your own and enjoy the spectacular beauty of the area
  • A life time of memories and friendships.
Join us at Yellowstone National Park as part of our Wild West Roundup that includes Colorado Springs, Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and the Black Hills.

Wish we could join you on this leg of your rallies, but Oakman and I had already made reservations at Yellowstone Grizzley RV Park (about 5 minutes away from your RV park) for the period 28 Aug thru 7 Sep. Hopefully we'll see you around a geyser or hot spring.

Hey FROG Bob, how are you guys doing? Having lots of fun, I'm sure. Oakman Bob and I have been going out everyday hiking and running around Yellowstone. We had a great time at our Chuckwagon dinner. We are so tired at night we fall asleep in our recliners. We have had a few campfires where we really miss all you good people. Hope to hook up soon.

We're having a great time enjoying group meals and campfires, exploring Yellowstone, and more. Just about everyone has been to the IMAX to use the Yellowstone film as an orientation, and many have been to the Grizzly and Wolf Center in town, both on tickets included in the rally package. We also attended the finals of the West Yellowstone Rodeo on Saturday night.

There have been lots of wildlife sightings throughout the park, including a bear that charged the Frensleys as they were watching three rangers try to get it away from the Roosevelt Lodge and Stables. The rangers told them that it was OK to stand behind them as they turned the bear around, but the bear had other thoughts and turned back and charged. The rangers told the family to run as the rangers fired paintballs at the bear and chased it off. Everyone is find, but they are all more than willing to scratch "be chased by a bear" off of their to-do lists.

Eight of the ladies went horseback riding today (Monday) and had a great time. Some of us will be having dinner at Old Faithful Lodge tomorrow, and we have a group dinner and show on Wednesday night in Island Park, ID.

Fortunately, as you know, the fire southwest of West Yellowstone was quickly contained and didn't pose a threat to the town or the park.

As Willy Wonka says, "We have so much time, and so little to do. No, wait. Reverse that."

We'll be posting on both the Tetons and Yellowstone now that we have internet service availalbe.
