In the woods, near Yellowstone NP…

Polecat River at L entering Snake River

What a view!  This is the Snake River, and we are camping right on it.  For free!  That itty bitty river up there on the L is the Polecat River, flowing into the Snake River.

This view shows the river a little better.  I wish y’all could hear it!  Of course I would cut down those two dead trees if I owned this spot, but they didn’t ask me.

This is a dispersed campground (free), and there are four sites in this little spot.  That is the good news; the bad news is that it will be closed as of today so that the small outhouse can be replaced by a larger one.  The ranger emptying trash yesterday said that we might be able to stay, seeing as how we are self contained and don’t need the outhouse, but I know for sure the three tents sharing this spot with us are gonna have to go.  Poor things.

It’s beautiful and sooo peaceful.  We can’t leave for Yellowstone (which is what we want to do for the day) until we find out if we have to leave or not.  We want to stay here for a few days, and go canoeing.  Pretty please, let us stay, ranger man!

The perils of traveling.

We’ll manage.  We’re flexible.

Did I mention that life is good?

It really looks lovely there! Hope you get to stay a bit longer, but if not there are sure to be greener pastures ahead.

Just caught up on today's and yesterday's post and am so enjoying the pictures! I'm not sure I'd want an antler arch in my yard either!

I sure hope you get to stay at the campground, you'd have it all to yourself and wouldn't that be grand?

Fingers crossed for you!

It's a beautiful spot indeed. I've a feeling that you'll be staying right there, since you're self contained and all.

Have a terrific day and enjoy every minute. Life is very good. Big hug. :)

Oh, Mister Ranger, Sir! I couldn't help but hear Yogi's voice when I read your sincere entreaty!

The view is stunning! I can almost hear the river running past!

big hugs :)
