It was cold again this morning but pleasant. I woke up with a sore throat and a headache so we didn’t get much hiking done today. Instead we drove to Jackson, WY (2 hour drive from Old Faithful) and did some shopping as well as getting gas. It was 50 cents cheaper there than in the park. After lunch we drove to Jenny Lake and the loop road. On the way back to Old Faithful we stopped often to take pictures. We got back around 6pm.
What I Learned Today:
- The National Elk Refuge is outside of Jackson.
- Elk shed their antlers each season.
- The Indian Arts Museum at Colter Bay was exceptional.
- Ulysses S. Grant was the president who made Yellowstone a national park. I thought it was Roosevelt but he was only 14 at the time.
