Day 16 - May 29, 2007

This is our last day in Yellowstone. We spent most of the morning getting Lucy ready to go.

We hit the park for one last time. We decided to go by Old Faithful again and see the big show. As we were leaving the parking lot, we witnessed a big black crow committing a B&E, Auto on a motorcycle tank bag. As we watched, the crow actually opened the zipper on the tank bag and searched for food. We went by the rest of the geyser and pools that we ahd not seen. We also went by Firehole Falls.

Before we went back to Lucy, we went by the location where we had seen the Moose last night. We caught a glimpse of another Moose cow before she disappeared into the woods.

Tomorrow morning we are on our way to Glacier National Park.

Took me a minute to figure out the "B&E" from your post. Had to read the hole thing first. But then I haven't had any run-ins with the law. Least nothing more than a speeding ticket or two.

Great shots. I am enjoying reading your travelogue so much. I can't wait to take my two boys to Yellowstone in a couple of years. Hopefully a trip to the Grand Canyon will be the year following.

Thanks for letting us come along vicariously. Looking forward to the rest of the trip.

I'm sorry about that. B&E, Auto is breaking and entering of an automobile for the purpose of theft of contents. Here are a couple more photos better depivting the crime.

Well, I should have known that one. My truck was a B&E victim last summer and last week someone tried again in the same parking deck. When I reported it to the parking deck security, the lame @$$ security manager blamed it on my truck...the door handle design on the F-250's and several others Ford, GM, and Dodge products are easy to pop off and the perp can reach up into the door and trip the door lock making the anti-theft system "think" that the door was unlocked with the key and thus disarm the system and unlock the door at the same time. Fortunately this time, they weren't successful in getting in; unfortunately, last time I wasn't so lucky.

The bike in the picture of your B&E is way cool! A BMW R1200GS Adventure with the rider a member of the "Iron Butt Association". They're high mileage riders who do things meet in Alaska to have lunch, or spend their summer on a four corners ride...the four corners of the continental USA +/-Alaska.

When we went snowmobiling out there, those same birds would open the velcro flap underseat storage area and crawl in to look for food! I kept finding my seat storage open when we'd get off the machine and wondered what was up...until I caught one of them in the act.

BTW, I've really enjoyed your travelogue. Thanks!

Day 17 - May 30, 2007

We broke camp at the West Yellowstone KOA, and started making our way toward Glacier National Park. On our way out of town we spied a really cool Airstream tow vehicle. This thing ought to handle a 34 footer easily.

We drove north on US 191, and stopped to look at Big Sky, a ski rsort community about 50 miles north of West Yellowstone. It was OK, but not our style.

We continued north on US 191 to I-90 near Bozeman. We continued west on I-90 to Butte, where we made camp at the KOA, Butte. It's pretty nice, and resonable at about $25.00 for full hook-ups. We went by the visitor Information center and got some Butte information. It looked so neat, we decided to spend two nights here.

We had dinner a local restuarant called Lydia's; it was great. After dinner, we went to Wal-Mart for supplies. We took a dusk ride around uptown Butte, and looked around.

The photo with the full moon in it was taken from our campsite. The tower at sunset is one of the old mine towers above uptown Butte.

Now you can say you haven't visited Yellowstone "in a blue moon"! Or that you visited Big Sky "once in a blue moon". You get the cliché. Tonight's full moon is the second one in May making it the first blue moon since 2003.

I'm intrigued by the snow yacht. Do they drive it year round and on pavement or does it sit there 'till the next big snow?

I don't know the answer to that. I always saw it in that same spot. It does have rubber tracks, and could operate on dry pavement or dirt. Here's another angle that shows the tracks better.

Day 18 - May 31, 2007

We are still in Butte. We lounged around and got Olivia a bath.

This afternoon we toured Historic Uptown Butte. We were amazed with the number of historic biuldings (both commercial and residential) still in use in this town. Many of these buildings are architecturally significant. We have seen so many in one place. We spent several hours driving the streets of the historic district, and took over 100 pictures. I have posted a sampling of these. We would highly suggest seeing the Butte Historic Ditrict if you ever happen through here.

I think I heard that next year's International Rally was scheduled for Butte. This would be good to see.

I spent some youthful and somewhat "lost" weekends in Butte but we were more interested in the new and fresh things at the time. It is a pretty place and I appreciate your reminding me of that. Port Townsend, WA, has quite a few buildings of similar years and they have also worked to keep them in place and treasured for what they are.

Am enjoying your travellog, thanks,

Barry
