Our ‘Old Faithful’ RV from El Monte Survives Yellowstone24/06/2013
On the last night in Yellowstone, the temps dropped to 24f or -4 degrees Celsius and our picnic table the next morning had a veneer of hoarfrost coating it, but our faithful RV heater kicked in at around 4am so we survived the coldest night so far out of the four below-freezing campsites we stayed at in Yellowstone National Park. We spotted elk, bison, black bear (fairly well hidden) bald eagles, osprey, Canada geese, buffel head ducks, ground squirrels, chipmunks, but alas no wolves or grizzlies! Oh we also caught some huge cutthroat trout and even a big lake trout too (dinner tonight). Yellowstone was established by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Ulysses S. Grant on March 1, 1872 and widely held to be the first national park in the world.
