We left our parking spot, at the Bellagio, at 4:23 PM (Mountain Time). We spent the rest of our day driving to our next hotel. The next day we stopped at Bryce Canyon on our way to another hotel in Layton, Utah.
On June 12th we explored the area around the Morman temple on our way out of Utah. Our last stop, in Utah, was the Great Salt Lake. Before getting in, we were told that at no point in the lake does it get deeper then 13 feet. My siblings and I were also amazed that no matter how hard we tried we could not sink. We also found it a bit hard to get used to the fact that if you stopped all form of movement you would just float instead of roll over or sink like you would in a normal pool. On our way to the showers we dried a good bit and were able to see all the salt that had dried on our skin.
We arrived in Bozeman, Montanna just as the sun began to set (that is to say, around 10:30 PM, the sun sets really late in Bozeman). We introduced ourselves to our hosts, the Moore family, and then they showed us around their property.
The next day was a rest day in which we did a photo shoot of the camper my siblings and I stayed in all week. We did have the option to stay in the guest room with mom and dad but, my siblings and I had never slept in a camper before and purely enjoyed this new experience. Later that day we began a game of Monopoly – National Parks Edition.
Sunday we attended Grace Bible Church with the Moore family. We spent the afternoon running errands and enjoying the strange cloud forming above the mountains in the Moore’s backyard.
Monday was day one of exploring Yellowstone National Park.
Tuesday we chilled at the house and that evening Elyse taught us how to star tip.
Wednesday we explored another area of Yellowstone.
We spent two more days at the Moore’s house due to Dad’s seminar. We had a lot of fun there. Next stop: Powell, Wyoming.
