Today we headed off through Yellowstone and out of the south entrance. We stopped at Grand Prismatic Spring as we haven’t seen that yet. It was amazing. There were lots of colours, reds, oranges, browns, blues and lots of steam. The colours are made from different coloured bacteria called thermophiles. You are not allowed to throw anything in because it will block the geysers and spoil it for everyone else.
On our way we saw a frozen lake. We looked on the map and it was called Lewis lake. We stopped to take a photo and I threw a snowball at daddy and put one up his t-shirt.
Into the Tetons and Jackson lake
We stopped at Jackson lake for a picnic lunch. It was beautiful. I threw some stones in the lake.
We got to the hotel in Driggs which is in a new state, Idaho and it has a pool so we all went swimming. We went to a pub for dinner and I made two new friends.
First we went to a cafe and had a croissant and a milk. Then we went shopping buying Mummy’s cowboy boots for her Birthday. Before Mummy showed me her cowboy boots Eliza and I were playing with the horses and Daddy kept getting grumpy at me. I was just playing and he kept saying because (big elephants can always understand small elephants) I had too many toys out.
We went to the museum when it was the museum time and I kept wandering off. The museum is called Buffalo Bill Centre of the West. It had lots of statues for me to take pictures of. It had lots of different parts. There was a cool projector that put a picture of Bill Cody onto smoke. It had a big bear and a bison and an old car. We saw a bird of prey display and there was a red tail, a bald eagle and a saw-whet owl.
After that we went back to the cafe and bought some small toy figures. I got animals that live in Yellowstone and Eliza got cowboys and Indians. We came back to our log cabin for a picnic dinner and then went to get an ice cream. At the ice cream shop there was a seat like a saddle that I sat on and we had a big ice cream dipped in chocolate. On the way home we played with my frisbee and I ran through the sprinklers and got soaking wet.
It’s a really hot day today and I took lots of photos and we bought some postcards.
