Morning Trip

Today we decided to go to Yellowstone Lake.  We went through the Mammoth area to Norris Junction, then headed east towards Canyon. On the way we took the one-way Virginia Cascades road and stopped to look at the falls.

From there we went to the Canyon complex, and I bought a t-shirt at the Adventure store.  It's one of "our" stores, but focuses on outdoor sports and clothes.  Nice place.  Nothing else was open up there yet, due to the snow and late opening. The road to Tower was still closed, but we found out this afternoon that it opened at noon.

Next, we drove to Yellowstone Lake, where we drove out to Gull Point and had a picnic.  It was a bit chilly and windy, so our picnic was in the truck!

We then came back to the trailer, relaxed for the afternoon, and then grilled lemon-garlic pork sirloins for dinner.
