After our wonderful pancakes in SD we got back on the road and headed for Yellowstone. From this point on in the trip none of us has ever visited any of our destinations. The park was everything we imagined. It was so beautiful. We spent about 10 hrs checking out the sites. This was the view from our campsite. So beautiful. However, we thought it was cold in SD. That night it got down to 35 degrees. Seriously. Crazy, isn't it? I slept in my sleeping bag, with an additional blanket inside and I wore sweat pants, socks, a T-shirt, a sweatshirt and my coat and I was still cold. Part of the problem was that our tent is so big that the heat the five of us generate just doesn't get trapped. BURR. Before we called it a night Ryan got a touch of altitude sickness. He had the chills and was nauseous. But, the following morning he was back to normal. After Yellowstone we headed south to the Grand Tetons.
