Leaving Yellowstone I got an 8:15 start, and after filling the tank with gas, I headed to Artists Paint Pots, which is about 5 miles South of the Canyon Lodge. On my way up the road to the overlook, I started to see some wildlife.
Below, you’ll find some pictures and a video of Elk, grazing along the side of the road.
Viewing overlooks on the way out of the park
As I was riding out of the park, there were a number of scenic overlooks, all of which seem to be more breathtaking than the one before. So, I’ve put together a compilation of some of the most beautiful viewing points.
MAMOTH HOT SPRINGS
As I was at the very Northern end of Yellowstone, I came upon the last significant geological item in the park. The area called Mammoth Hot Springs has served as barracks for the military when they were in charge of Yellowstone in the 1870 – 1900 timespan. Also in this part of the park is another geyser type geological features.
The water flows from the ground at a temperature of about 160 degrees, and slowly flows over the rocks, forming interesting formations, and simply looking interesting.
Enjoy the hot springs
Friday I’ll be heading to Bannack State Park, a Ghost town about 150 miles from Bozeman. We’ll be riding in Leila’s truck, so I’ll be off the bike.
Addios, for now
