Museum of the Rockies, Bozeman, Mt 2015

Wow, what a great museum to see.  I thought that all we would see would be dinosaurs, but we saw guns, cars, planes, Indian artifacts, a planetarium, and lots of dinosaurs.  The price to visit the museum was $14.75 for seniors, but I believe we got our money's worth.  We saw a lot of different types of dinosaurs that we had never heard of.  All of the bones came from somewhere in Montana.  Every room just got even better.  Even got to see clusters of dinosaur eggs.  Some of those dinosaurs sure had long legs.

Tinsley House, Bozeman, mt

The Tinsley House is part of the Museum of the Rockies.  Pretty interesting to tour.  They had some ladies inside the house explaining how the family lived.  One of the ladies was cooking biscuits, one was dying wool using yellow flowers, and another was spinning wool.  There were two blacksmiths out in the blacksmith shop working on hangers.  Really neat.

Teton National Park, July 2015

We just love our time at Teton National Park.  We were there first two weeks in July.  There was not as much snow on top of the mountains as there was last year, however, they are still beautiful to see.  We were able to see foxes just about every day as they were at the beginning of our campground.  We plan on going back in about 2 weeks.  Gary had a great time fishing on the river, he ended up catching and releasing over a 100 fish while we were there.  His only competition was the people who brought their kids down to the river and tried to teach them to skip rocks on the water or see which one could pick up the largest rock and throw it into the river.  We also had a lot of rain during our visit this year.  Mornings were beautiful, but it rained almost every night.  The mountains were usually covered by the clouds this year.

Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center 2015

This is one of my favorite places to visit when we are in West Yellowstone.  I can watch the grizzlies all day long.  This year, we went to the center 2 days.  The best time to take photos of the bears is in the afternoon.  Our tickets cost $10.75 each for seniors and tickets are good for 2 days.  Besides watching bears and wolves, the center has great movies.  If you are ever in the area, be sure to go to the center.
