I gave myself a lie in this morning. Lying in isn't so easy when you're sleeping on a mat in a tent, but getting up at 7am was progress on 4.45am!
I looked through my photos of Geyser country, yesterday, and there were a few problems with them becuase of the setting I had left the camera on. Yesterday I saw some pretty incredible sights and so I was determined to take an hour or two this morning to re-photograph the geysers and hot springs.
I spent the afternoon at Yellowstone Lake (I'm staying in Grant Village in Lake Country) and I took a short hike to a lake overlook this evening to watch the sunset. The hike took me a mile or two from the road through flower filled meadows. I had my hand on my pepper spray, not because of the cayotes howling at the setting sun, but because this just seemed like the place you'd find a bear roaming around.
You deserve to know what I'm surviving on out here in the wilder. Well my diet these days consists of; soup, bread, sweetcorn, rice or chlli. Thrilling variety there, I think not, but it's keeping me going.
