The packing list

January 13, 2016


Megan's sock collection

How many wool socks is too many?

Warm socks and boots – check!
Long underwear – check!
Hats and gloves – check!
Excitement building – check!

Packing our boots and every scrap of cold weather gear we can muster. Reviewing travel plans and itineraries. Checking the weather….rechecking the weather…. Rechecking the weather. Excitement and nerves escalate as we anticipate bison, elk, wolves, geysers, and snow, beautiful snow!

By the look of today’s webcam at Old Faithful and the latest weather report, we should be greeted with all the magic and splendor that nature and Yellowstone have to offer. We have a 40% chance of snow to look forward to upon our arrival tomorrow with highs in the lower 20’s — not too bad, really… Just slightly chillier than our recent North Carolina mornings.

We’ll hit the airport bright and early tomorrow with a big day of travel ahead of us. So, stay tuned, blog readers, there’s much more to come!

    Hello from Penny Road Elementary! We are Mrs. LeRoy’s fifth grade students. We would like to know how much snow is on the ground. We would also like to know how the large herbivores like elk and bison find enough food to eat. Stay warm!
    P.S. Caillou says hi to Megan, Melissa, and Megan F.!!

      We can report that there is no snow in Raleigh or Atlanta. Our flights are currently being redirected to many airports across the US. We will try to report snowfall totals in Chicago, Salt Lake City, and Denver as we pass through, before we arrive (hopefully) to Bozeman.
