We rose early in Beaver, Utah to get on the road for the final half of our 1,000-mile drive to Yellowstone National Park.
During our refueling stop in Idaho, I found that The Beast averaged nine miles per gallon of gasoline. It was somewhat better than expected. The Winnebago has a 55-gallon gasoline tank and runs on a Ford Triton V-10 engine.
Fortunately for us, gasoline was cheaper outside of California. We paid $2.95/gallon in Idaho.
Before arriving in West Yellowstone in Montana, we did make a stop at Yellowstone Bear World in Rexford, Idaho. Yellowstone Bear World is an attraction whose goal is to recreate the Yellowstone National Park experience in seeing bears and other wildlife up close in your car of the days before the government stopped allowing park visitors to feed the bears.
People drive through Yellowstone Bear World to see the bears, wolves, deer, moose and other animals. There is also a petting zoo. One of the most popular attractions is the feeding of bear cubs by the visitors to the attraction. There are also rides for the kids and a big gift shop.
After our visit to Yellowstone Bear World, we headed off to our campground in West Yellowstone.
