Sept. 5, Day 4 – Yellowstone

The traffic in Yellowstone was often bumper to bumper, so we decided to go up north to Mammoth Hot Springs and then proceed to Boseman, MT so that the next day wouldn’t be such a long tirp. We hadn’t been to Mammoth on our previous trip to Yellowstone in 1963. (WOW, many moons ago!!) It is a wonder. Miles of immense white, marble like cliffs, many of which are dripping and being re-sculpted by acidic water, and being recolored by acidophilic, heat resistant bacteria.

We then follow the pretty Yellowstone River through the lovely valley it has created, mostly unspoiled by civilization. Boseman seems like a nice little western college town (MT State U). We enjoy a change of cuisine at Ferraro’s, an excellent Italian restaurant. Yummy veal and salad.
