We did, however, go into West Yellowstone, Montana for dinner and some window-shopping at many stores (all catering to tourists' money).
Today, Day 7, had us up early to go into Yellowstone National Park to have breakfast in the dining room of the Old Faithful Inn. We got there a half hour before the dining room opened at 6:30 a.m. I am told that Disneyland's Bear Country Jamboree is patterned after the Old Faithful Inn.
The food was great!
After breakfast, we headed out of Yellowstone, but before we did, we stopped at two Sinclair gas stations in search for some plush Dinos. Unfortunately, none of them had any. So, while on the road, we made sure to stop at Sinclair stations along the route so see if any of them had any. Unfortunately, none did (we have another day to check more).
We ended up staying the night at the KOA Kampground in Richfield, Utah. We will be heading out early in the morning with a drive-through Zion National Park on the agenda.
Before leaving Wyoming, we drove through Grand Tetons National Park (it is only 29 miles south of Yellowstone).
