Day 24 West Yellowstone, MT - Laurel, MT 234 miles

  Left the motel and temperature was 39* at 7:30 this morning. Well we ended up going into Yellowstone again and hit construction in the park twice. It took us 6 hours to go 116 miles. Of course the max speed in the park is 45 MPH. BUT.....did we see some sites. It was colder so the geysers were really smokin'. We see elk, bears and thousands of buffalo. When we see the bears they were pretty close to the road and a bunch of cars stopped to look and I am thinking, HEY!!! we are on a motorcycle folks. We I guess it wasn't "folks" that I called them but it is close.
  We went out the Northeast Gate across Rt. 212 which is also Bear Tooth Scenic Byway. We thought the Going-to-the-Sun Highway was awesome. This highway has some scenery that you wouldn't believe unless you see it. It is also a motorcycle riders dream. The switch backs and curves are wicked and so is the scenery.
   So after 9 hours on the road we are here in Laurel, MT at the Best Western Yellowstone Crossing. Time for a shower and some supper. :^)
  Albert & Susie
Here is a short video of Bear Tooth Scenic Highway:

    That's funny and it sure is nice in Montana. Utah was nice last year too. Seems everyone in the Provo area has a mountain in their back yard.:^)
