Today I Went to the Top of the World and Saw a Few Things on the Way

Today we drove over the top of the world - literally - or at least that's what the sign said. The map referred to it as Beartooth Pass or Route 212 from Yellowstone to Billings Montana. Judge for yourself from the pictures below if it lived up to its name. I know that the only plants growing were about an inch tall and there was still 5 feet of snow in some places. Even though it added 2 hours to our drive, the view was breathtaking (after I got over hyperventilating from the height).

We also spent time in Grand Teton National Park.......

Jenny Lake

The Tetons

and Yellowstone National Park......

Old Faithful

Upper and Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River


Yes that is a bear!!!!

In addition to this bison, we also had one so close to the car, Jon could have rolled down his window and touched it. We also saw a wolf, deer and elk. Wil said he saw more animals this trip than he had on all his other trips to Yellowstone combined.

It was an awe-inspiring day!!
