From Glacier to Yellowstone

This is going to be mostly pictures.  When we left Glacier it was starting to rain.  The sky was breathtakingly beautiful.  We just don't get big sky pictures in northern California so I had a hard time picking what pictures to put in blog.  I hope you don't get bored looking at pictures of clouds and roads going off in the distance.  I should mention here that we don't travel on interstate highways if we can help it.  We drive mostly state highways and scenic roads.  That's why it took us three days to drive 400 miles, we are taking our time and counting the flowers, as my cousin use to say.

A note about next picture.  These Antelope were grazing in a farmers field under the watering system.  I had to zoom in to get them.  They started to leave when I stopped Ghost Girl but they turned around for their picture.

There are still quite a few wildflowers blooming.

Stopped here for lunch because as you will see in the next picture, 
there was water and it was time for me to get my feet wet and Rose wanted to go for a walk.

Rose hips.

Asters with butterfly.

Sometimes you see the darndest(is that a word?) things.  Driving past a little lake I saw these birds so pulled over to take their picture.  This one was very far away(hard to hold camera steady while zoomed out all the way), not sure what this was but the next ones are clearly seen.

White pelicans, go figure, way out in Montana. 

Many of the roads just follow along old indian trails like this one, right along the contour of the land.
And just so you don't forget what the speed limit is.  You just got to love the way Montana's think.

Another lunch stopping spot.

We traveled many miles along the Gallatin River where trout fishing is popular.

We're right where we wanted to be at this time, on the door step on Yellowstone.  Tomorrow we will rent another car and spend the day sightseeing.  Old Faithful here we come.  We are staying in the Yellowstone Grizzly RV park in West Yellowstone for two nights with a very strong AT&T cell signal so that means wifi is working great.  It doesn't take much to make me a happy camper.

See you in a few days.  Thanks for reading.

Evie, Joy and Rose
