The thought of another day of aimlessly driving through Yellowstone looking for bears was not exciting for any of us. Luckily, Aaron had planned our adventures for the day. The kids and I made a pact to not complain EVEN ONCE the whole day.
We saw LOTS and LOTS of stinky geysers. We walked through one steamy section where I actually felt like I was eating fried eggs! It was gross, but I didn't complain!
We looked at some BACTERIA MATS that made me feel like vomiting. Some previous Yellowstone visitors had ignored the signs that read, "Do not write on bacteria mats." I found one section of bacteria that said, "Joan!" I showed my mom and she pointed out that it actually read, "Juan!" Close enough!
Lucky for us, we got to see about 1,000 more bison. No bears, but lots and lots of bison. We were all sick of bison, but we DIDN'T COMPLAIN!! Our positive attitudes about spending yet another day in beautiful Yellowstone really paid off. It ended up being a very enjoyable day. Plus, we went back to the cabin and ate a 1/2 gallon of ice cream to congratulate ourselves for our great behavior. :)
