Yesterday we left Mountaindale at 9:21am and headed north on I-25. We arrived at Jellystone Yogi Bear Camp around 12:30.
We paid our bill and got set up. Jesse’s first task was to get the dish all called in to get local channels so he could watch the Raven’s football game.
We have no phone service here and the WiFi is not much better, but he got it done just in time to see the kick off.
After the game the three of us got in the car and went for a drive. We saw a few elk in a field and I took a few pictures.
We didn’t stay out very long and returned home. I heated some dinner and we watch TV until going to bed.

Today we got our showers and decided to take a ride to town and walk around the shops.
We passed the Stanley Hotel where the movie “The Shining” was made with Jack Nicholson.
We took Bella with us and Jesse carried her most of the time in her sling.
(I didn’t take a picture today.)
We walked the shops and saw a guy make a pumpkin with hand blown glass, it was really interesting.
We stopped for lunch at Baba’s Drive-in, we both had a 1/4 pound hot dog that really hit the spot.
Then we decided to take a ride on Old Fall River Road. It’s a one way dirt road to Alpine Visitors Center. It was a really pretty drive.
It took us about 1 ½ hours to get to the top of the 11 mile dirt road. Above the tree lines.
After walking around up there we decided to ride to Grand Lake. We just rode through the town, promising to return, then headed back home.
We had been in the car for about 4 1/2 hours and I was ready to be home.
We snacked on cheese, crackers and grapes for dinner and just relaxed.
