|And I thought I would include a picture of the grizzly that I saw the other day south of Indian Creek.|
|Judy at her Farewell Reception in West Yellowstone|
The crowds came to bid Judy a farewell at her reception yesterday. I didn't cry once (at least not on the outside). It was a wonderful gathering put on by the company. There are so many who are going to miss her.
I headed to Lake via Craig Pass after the reception. The road south of Canyon has been re-opened for the weekend even though the pullout has been washed away and a large crack has appeared. It will be closed for repairs on Monday and will be closed for a few days. I decided to go to Lake using the south route since the road could be closed at any time if the condition of the road gets worse.
I managed to see a grizzly by Fountain Paint Pots. Josh told me today that when he passed by there earlier in the day there were actually five grizzlies there but I only managed to see the one. I also had to hit the brakes by Pumice Point when a rascally pine marten dashed across the road and further on a coyote made its way over the road.
This morning Aaron came out of the side door from our dorms to find a fox with a squirrel in its mouth. Later I watched a pine marten scurrying around by the loading dock. Wildlife abounds.
And on my final day at the Adventure Store it has been snowing. At this point all I can do is laugh. And eat the cookies that Ranger Chris brought me.
