Keystone to Yellowstone

Wednesday, May 11 — Day 19: Keystone, South Dakota to Yellowstone National Park, which is mostly in Wyoming with a little bit in Montana and Idaho (continuing on the Passage Across America)

Even though it was still snowing, we went back to Mt. Rushmore in hopes that visibility may be better. This first picture is at the entrance to the park. If you look at the trees in this morning’s photo versus the photo taken yesterday evening at the same location, you’ll get a sense of just how hard it was snowing.


Visibility was better. There was still cloud cover and most of the time the faces were completely obscured, but as the clouds moved, you could occasionally catch a glimpse.


We got back on the highway and went to Devil’ Tower National Monument in Wyoming, where visibility was similar to Mt. Rushmore. Sometimes we could get a hazy glimpse of it, but most of the time it was obscured by clouds.


We spent the night in a cute little log cabin in Buffalo, Wyoming
