Last Days in Yellowstone

The great thing about a long trip with no phone or Internet access is discovering that, collectively, our four teenagers can recite almost every great Monty Python line in full Brit accent. That and realizing that the human brain can actually complete an entire train of thought when it isn't constantly interrupted. By the end of our trip the car was so rank we attracted wildlife with no effort at all! Thanks to the animals that showed up: Black bears, Bull elk, moose, a family of otters, another grizzly and cubs, prairie dogs, a beaver, and the other two-thousand-three-hundred-and-forty-two bison we'd missed earlier. Thanks also to Richard and Jim for the tips that took us to Boiling River, where a thermal spring spills into the Gardner river and you can settle into the clear, rushing water at whatever spot the temperature feels perfect.
