We arrived at our friends house Roger & Mary in Gillette, Wyoming  Saturday evening.   Sunday was Rogers birthday so we went to eat at a new restaurant in town that Roger happens to work there as a handy man.  Now Roger has been retired and very content, but he is very handy like Kent is and the restaurant was needing someone to be a handyman, so through an acquaintance they got Rogers name & they called him.  One of his handy jobs was to mount the cougar on the wall.  It is up over a door way and really up there.  I would liked to have seen the work in progress.  Good job Roger.

Since it had been several years since Kent & I had been to Devils Tower, we all made the trip over on Monday.  All we remembered was the tower itself,  nothing else looked familiar.  The day was nice & sunny and by mid morning it was getting pretty warm.   There are several trails you can walk but we just took the shortest that went around the base of the tower, but even at that it took us a good
hour or more.


After saying our goodbyes on Tuesday morning we headed northwest towards Yellowstone.   It had been as many years since we had seen Yellowstone as Devils Tower.  We went into the park at the East entrance.  This must have been the area where a lot of the fires had been.  We drove for probably at least 50 miles seeing the trees burned out.   You cannot see Yellowstone in 1 day, but we only spent yesterday there.  We left out the North exit, and decided that was the prettier way to come in.  Just a few of the MANY pictures we took.

Lunch by Yellowstone Lake
And last but not least "OLD FAITHFUL"

Many more things to see in the park but we are moving on.  We are in Montana right & expect to be in Canada by Saturday.  I do not know how often I will be able to post a blog while traveling, but I will do my best.  Thanks for reading the blog, I love sharing our travels with our friends & family.
Until next time
Kent & Martha
