Opening of Yellowstone: East and Northeast GateMay 192017
The East Gate of Yellowstone opened May 5 and the Northeast Gate opened May 12. This past Sunday we took a drive through the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway, 15 miles north of Cody, and then through Cooke City to Silver Gate and the NE entrance. Our first stop was a picnic lunch along the Soda Butte Creek. Then on through Lamar Valley to Tower Junction and then to Mammoth. The day showed us so many sights and animals. A day in the Park is always a day to remember.
