Living just 90 miles away, we get to Yellowstone fairly often. It’s a privilege to live so close to such a wonder. And when I go to Yellowstone, I usually want to cover a lot of ground because there is so much to see.
But last visit, we just got about 15 miles into the park and stopped at Madison Junction, where the Firehole River joins the Gibbon River to form the Madison, to watch the day’s last few hours. It was the most peaceful visit to Yellowstone we can remember.
