In any case, we got there and saw the Tetons in the fading sun and arrived at camp around 930 pm. There was lots of people in the park, lots of traffic, and few areas that were not far from the feeling of being in line for a ride at an amusement park. The traffic was bad due to road construction and wild animals that take up the lane or lens of dumb photographers from cars. Many motorist just parked their cars in the road and got out to photograph what ever they saw. We waited over 2 hours to go a few miles or so due to this.

What a road!
Yellowstone Lake and a reflection of calm waters. I hiked around to this point and fished there... no fish.

Old Faithful and all of us who came.
Yellowstone National Park had lots of fishing places, but none were really open for fishing along the lake and Yellowstone River. Many on the book they give you show that fishing is allowed, but when you get there signs are all over the place saying you cannot fish. Puzzling and frustrating for I planned on some trout for dinner, lunch, etc. I would love to go back there again, maybe with four or five days to spend there and with less people / traffic. But for now, I think all of us had fun, even if it did sleet, snow, rain, and storm most of the days we were there.
