Yellowstone & Montana - Day 15 & 16

Drive home!

We left early Saturday morning and stopped in West Yellowstone for breakfast at the Running Bear Pancake House. Greg loves him some blueberry pancakes.

On our way through Idaho, we saw a sign next to the freeway for a huge Army surplus store, so we decided to stop and take a peek. Imagine how excited I'd be if you replaced the words "huge Army surplus store" with "huge scrapbook store," and that's how excited my dad was. Okay, maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but he was excited. I have to admit, I was a little bit too. They had some interesting stuff in there - used cross country skis/boots/poles, old snowshoes, used canteen covers, excess medical supplies, used sleds, ammo containers, etc.

We stopped the night in Cedar City since we planned to make a detour at Bryce Canyon the next morning. Last time we were in Bryce Canyon, it was the middle of winter and there were very few people at the park. It was much more crowded this time around, though not like Yellowstone. Spent a few hours at Bryce Canyon before continuing our drive back. After passing through Page, we stopped at Horseshoe Bend just south of it. It was quite scenic and pretty easy to get to.

It's so nice to be home, though the vacation was fun. I was getting pretty antsy in the car the closer we got to home. And we missed the kitties. They are person cats.

  1. You drove through page and didn't stop at Antelope Canyon? I'm disappointed.

    You know there is an army surplus store in the valley right? I just want to make sure...since you didn't know that Costco has had self checkout for eons.

    What's a person cat? A cat that you treat like a person because you're a creepy cat lady?
