We began our Fall quarter with a RoadTrek camping trip to Yellowstone
In the past we have spent nights in hotels in the park;
this was our first time
Local friends Phil and Joan accompanied us in their own RoadTrek.

On our second hike we encountered a
digging a den.
He kept a wary eye on us as we walked by at a safe distance.
