Montana - yellowstone part 1

We headed out bright and early Monday morning for Yellowstone. Well, as bright and early as 8 adults and 1 teenager can do.

We arrived in West Yellowstone, where we'd return to spend the night, then headed into the Park. Just about immediately, Chris spotted this on the side of the road.

Lets look at little closer...

And across the road was their nest. Now, there were no stopping signs along the road (which we obeyed, it was an eagle nesting area and protected) so this is from the car....

We drove on in, saw the elk (see previous post) and drove along looking for an available place to eat lunch.

Luckily we found this:

Next up....Old Faithful and about 300 geyers....
