Our first morning at Yellowstone dawned cold and chilly and freezing. After camping in Utah where the temperatures were nothing if not hot we were in for quite a change. :) We discovered interesting items of information; for example, the bathhouse is a warm spot if you have the hand dryer going, and sweatshirts are more important than, well, a lot of things.
We also discovered that a smile helps everything!
Especially if you are nine months old and have (adorable) fang teeth. Footed pajamas don't hurt either.
The view from our tent was beautiful in the mist...
...and the neighbor (a solitary bison) was friendly, although too close for the comfort of some. :)
After it warmed up and we thawed out we drove to Mammoth Hot Springs. The springs might be hot, but the mountains sure look cold. We should be thankful; we didn't wake up with snow on our backs.
Mammoth was pretty interesting. It didn't really look like the pictures of it, but it was spectacular in its own way.
We took a walk to a waterfall--Yellowstone has no shortage of falls--after lunch.
