A trip to Bozeman

The drive to Bozeman was very scenic.  About twenty of the 100 miles went through the western edge of Yellowstone NP.  I did see one grizzly bear as I drove along, but he moved out of sight before I could get my camera up to take a shot.
IMG_1673 I don’t think I’ll ever tire of seeing snow capped mountains.

I did my shopping as quickly as I could since I had to leave Emma at home.  As it was, the round trip took me about seven hours.  On the way back, I decided to check out one of the forest service campgrounds in the Gallatin National Forest.

While I was driving through the Red Cliff Campground, I came upon these does in the middle of the mostly vacant campground.

There were quite a few sites and a dozen of them even had electric hookups.  I think I could have fit my rig into several of them.  The campground bordered the Gallatin River.  What a peaceful place it was.

I was able to find the kind of wine I enjoy, so I’m having a glass now as I write.  The weather was just gorgeous today.  I hope it continues tomorrow so Emma and I can give the Tower Falls area another shot.

Thanks for stopping by….talk to you later,  Judy


  1. Beautiful pics today, Judy! That is such an amazing area.

    I think I saw a comment on Rick's blog from you today about adding a permanent watermark to your photos. I have a permanent setting through Picasa. Try that if you use that program. It was easy for me to figure out....and I can't figure out anything!!! :)

  2. Oh, I so agree with you...I never get tired of snow capped mountains! You have the most awesome views. Yellowstone and surrounding areas are some of our favorite places. We MUST get back up that way soon.
    You and Emma have a nice trip to Tower Falls.
