To Grant Village, Yellowstone

2 09 2013

After a leisurely morning, we’ve packed up and left Flagg Ranch.  It’s only about a 30 minute drive into Yellowstone and to Grant Village RV Campground which will be home-base for the next 3 nights.  By the time we arrive at Grant Village, it’s raining hard and the campsites and roadways are full of water.  We’re in sites I-297 and I-299, tight but beautiful sites with views out over a small inlet on Yellowstone Lake.  Just as in Flagg, the campsites are set in densely forested areas, with barely enough height and width to maneuver RVs.  This is huge campground, around 400 sites organized around several loops.  The only sites that have lakeside access are on the right side of the I loop – we lucked out!

After getting set up, we take the short drive (about 30 minutes) up to Old Faithful just in time for the 3:50 eruption.  Even in the steady falling rain, a fairly large crowd gathers in the area around the famous geyser.    We wander through the Visitor Center, check out the old Yellowstone Inn and then head back to Grant Village.  Tomorrow we’re planning a grand park circuit going all the way to the north entrance at Mammoth.
