2015 Summer Road Trip – Western Leg

This was the leg we all were waiting for, Yellowstone.  Erin had planned this over a year in advance and it was really cool!  We entered from the NE from Billings through Red Lodge Montana.  We then dropped down into the Lamar Valley and ended up for the first 3 days in North Yellowstone at Tower / Roosevelt Cabins.  The cabins were roomy with 3 beds and a wood stove.  We didn’t end up needing the stove as it was very warm.

The road was narrow and speed limits were slow, which was worth it due to the amazing views
