Our Wish List after today's ride through Yellowstone
1) We wish we could take our kids here to see it all. 2) Since we can't take all of our kids we wish we could take all of our grandkids here ... and might 3) We wish there were enough words in the English, Spanish, Greek, Latin (you get the point) language to describe what we saw. 4). We wish Robin would have charged the camera the night before like she usually does. 5) We wish Robin wasn't afraid to look over the edge because we would have a lot more rockin pictures (get it ... Rockin ... the Rockies). 6) We wish the camera could actually capture the real things we saw. 7) We wish David would slow down so when we see a herd of wild moose(s) (?) we could actually get the shot on film (we saw 10 ... a heard of them). 8) We wish David could turn the Harley around faster so we could go back and take the picture of the moose before they get into the woods ... he can't and didn't, so no picture. Take our word for it ... 10 MOOSE! 9). We wish we would have saw a bear, but a big buck; 10 MOOSE; a buffalo, the buffalo's brother, the buffalo's full herd; a antelope; and a partridge in a pear tree. (Okay, one of those we didn't see!). 10). We wish when we got to Cooke City and found a bike rally (see picture) that they would have cleaner streets. There is so much Montana dust the Harley even asked for rain (21 full days with no rain!!). 11). We wish anyone who doesn't believe that there is a God would take a day pass (we would pay for it) through Yellowstone. If you still don't believe there is a God we would introduce you to a bear. Then you would believe, really quickly. What a great day going from Jackson through Teton and Yellowstone and then showing up at Cooke Montana and finding 400 bikers to welcome us. What a parade .... just for us. We are going through Beartooth Pass tomorrow. It is only open 4 1/2 months a year (it snowed on it two days ago). It takes up to 11,000 feet. We are at 7800 now. Muskegon is about 650 feet. Do a google map search on Beartooth Pass. Robin will not be the same when (if) we get down, oops, I mean through it (I don't want to use the word "down" when Robin is reading this).
