We reluctantly left Grand Tetons on Thursday morning, longing for more time in the park. It’s a short drive north to the south entrance of Yellowstone and the time passed quickly as we listened to our GyPSy narrated driving tour and learned more about the history of the parks and how the Rockefellers and Roosevelt helped to preserve this amazing landscape.

Lewis Falls

Continental Divide

We crossed the Continental Divide three times on our way to the campground

Kepler Cascades

We arrived at Madison Campground, set up our tent and camp, and then went to the town of West Yellowstone for a relaxing afternoon of lunch, laundry, and grocery shopping. As we drove back into Yellowstone, it started to rain lightly, which continued for most of the evening. We were able to get dinner cooked over the campfire and even have s’mores, but it was an early night as the rain quite literally put a damper on our campfire plans.
