The first 3 weeks

So, i have been here for just about 3 weeks. So far so good. Work is going pretty well, but the masses have not descended quite yet. I sure it just a matter of time before the tourons arrive.
On the drive up I hit rain most of the time and it seems to have stayed with me here. I haven't really had many sun filled days but plenty of cold, rainy, and some snowy days. Everyone keeps telling me it will get worm here but I really don;t believe them!I stopped by Badlands Natl park on the drive up. I wanted to go to Mt Rushmore but it
was raining and I was trying to outrun a major snowstorm coming in.
I have been in Yellowstone 8 times so far and have seen NO wolves or bears. I am a little pissed about that but at least I have the whole summer to see them. I have seen a few new animals. Ofcourse there are the regulars like bison, elk, and deer.
Here in SW Montana we have traffic jams like other places
Just another friday afternoon in the park. We also have a town Bison in West yellowstone. He was a couple of houses down munching on the grass the other night.
And since it is Yellowstone I did go to Old Faithful. Not real impressive. Maybe if I go back on a day with sun it will be better.
I did see an otter--kinda looks like a gator if your used to being in Florida!

I'm glad you're doing this! (:

I think we camped at a parking lot type campground in West Yellowstone. I remember a lot of tourist shops and that there was also a rodeo going on that night.

Looking forward to hearing more of your adventures!

Well, it sounds like you're going to have an interesting summer. I'm sure you'll see wolves and see them every day at work! Quit your bitchin'!

Are there moose there? And yeah, the otter could pass for a gator cruising by...
