Wildlife and outhouses…

Early visitor This was our early visitor in the campground yesterday morning as we were enjoying our coffee.

Brown herons

Then after dinner I happened to glance up at Polecat River and saw two brown critters walking among the tall grass, assuming they were deer.  Wrong…we aren’t sure what these two guys are, but they are huge, maybe brown herons?  They were certainly graceful, out searching for their dinner.

Outhouse to be demolished

Perfectly functional outhouse is now gone, replaced by this one…

Outhouse, new

Our tax dollars at work…or waste…no pun intended.

So yesterday was chilly, windy and overcast.  We drove about 10 miles down Grassy Lake Road, where the cg is located, and found Grassy Lake, and then came back for lunch and turned the heat on.  It got colder!

We enjoyed our spot there on the Snake River, but today we are moving on, up north to the West Yellowstone area.  We hope to get in a forest service cg that has electricity, as it is time to do a little laundry and some cleaning.  That stuff goes on, no matter where we are.  Blah, blah…

Plus we want to go back into Yellowstone NP and check it out some more. 

Enjoy your Thursday.  The Griswolds are on the move!

Love all the wildlife. We see lots of fowl, fish, and other critters on the California Delta. Love it to pieces.

As for the outhouse? I see the governments found its niche. Bwahahahahaha.

Have a terrific day. Big hugs. :)

Oh, what I'd give to have weather cold enough for heat right about now!

I don't think those are herons, but what do I know? There are so many different herons!

Carry on! big hugs :)
