We finally made it. Every RV'ers dream. It's as pretty as everyone imagines. We stayed in the Fishing Bridge because it was the only campground at the time with full hookups. We were too new to know the best areas were outside in the wilderness with no hookups. If we go again we would stay in the Mammouth Campground where the wildlife roams thru the campground in the evening and at night. There are many of our friends that have better pictures than us on their personal web sites but this will give you the flavor of what it is like.
Look for the Elk in the grass.
The first picture was disappointing to us to still see the fire damage after 10 years.

We stopped in to see the Inn at Old Faithful. It had rooms with shared baths in the old section. Nice restaurant and bars.

One of the greatest thrills we had was riding both the North & South loops on the Harley. It was so cool in the AM that we had leathers on and by 10 in the AM we were in jeans and t shirts.
A funny story was that we always knew when we were in a high tourist area when we would see a lot of Japanese. At one of the stops there was a large group of Japanese tourists taking pictures of the scenery, buffalo's, etc. When we pulled up on the Harley in full leathers ,including chaps, one of the American speaking tourist came over and pointed to the crowd and asked could they take pictures of us and the bike with all the leathers on. Of course they could. We laughed after they left, thinking they came all the way to Yellowstone to take pictures of Americans riding Harleys. We were as popular as the wildlife.

Who says RV'ers can"t dress up? Normally when you travel you carry very little dress up clothes because most campgrounds never have any functions that make them useful.
Susie always liked to be ready for any social gatherings on the road such as plays, nice restaurants, etc so I had to have at least one set of presentable duds. There was a nice restaurant at the lodge in Yellowstone that gave us the opportunity to justify hauling around the dress clothes.

This is the Hot Mineral Springs at Mammoth. They are a lot prettier than this picture.

Tower Falls
We walked to the bottom to see the view. It was worth it.
This is only a few of the areas to see. You can easily spend a couple of weeks exploring.

We really enjoyed the lodge restaurant. It had been a while since we had enjoyed a nice restaurant.

Living in the motorhome was new to us and we were reallly enjoying the change of life style. After that night we decided we should do both, eating out at a nice restaurant at least once a month.

While visiting Yellowstone we discovered there were two loops. The north and south. We decided to do them both on the Harley.

Riding in the early morning with leather on was like being in a movie. By 10 o'clock it was hot and we had to shed the leather. The advantage of riding the bike was that you could smell the change in locations as you rode thru the park.

Mineral pools were different than we had ever seen.
