Day 11-12-13: Yellowstone national park

Hi everyone

Okay so from Zion we went to Ogden, which was a pretty long drive. We arrived there around seven in the evening. From Zion we wanted to go to Yellowstone which was a too long drive. That’s why we had to do it in two parts and stop in Ogden. It was a cute city with still a lot of typical shops. Unfortunately we couldn’t walk around there during the day because the next day we had the drive towards Yellowstone which was pretty long as well.

Day eleven we left Ogden to pursue our drive to Yellowstone. We arrived there in the afternoon and it was freezing!! We were all so cold haha! We checked in and went to our room. I stayed there to chill a bit and my mom and dad went on a little drive to the park to go and get a map. When they got back we decided to do two tours. We were there for three nights, so we could do one tomorrow and the other one the day after. Later we went for dinner and when we got back, we watched some tv and went to bed.

The next day we got up and left for the park. Because it was so cold and we weren’t prepared for that at all, we had as much on as we possibly could! It looked really funny!! The first tour was a pretty long one, we left at around eleven in the morning and got back at around eight in the evening. With just one stop to eat and a few were we had to get out and check out the geysers. These were really pretty!! They had such pretty colors, we even saw one bursting out! Before it exploded, we had to wait for about twenty minutes. It was pretty cool, but I expected more from it. After that we went back to the hotel. 

Day thirteen we left the hotel for the second tour. The weather was a lot better, but still very cold. Luckily the sun was shining! This tour was a lot higher in the park, so we had to drive a bit further. Although this one was higher and further from us, we were done a lot earlier. Again we left at eleven and we got back around five. This tour was mainly just driving through the pretty landscapes. When we got back to the hotel we were all pretty tired so we just stayed there and relaxed. 

In the park we also saw a lot of wildlife, which I wasn't expecting at all! There were bisons, coyote's, elks, wolfs, bears... Unfortunately we only saw the first three. I really wanted to see a bear, but that didn't happen. Probably because they mostly come out in the evening. 

The next day we had to leave yellowstone and continue our journey towards Jackson. This is almost the end of our trip, but we still have a few shopping days left in Salt Lake city!
