No question, Yellowstone is a special place. Did you stay in a hotel, or the airport campground?

We stayed at "Al's Westward Ho" motel (see pic in post 1), nice rooms right outside the west entrance to Yellowstone, rates were very reasonable. We reserve our camping experience just for Osh these days.

Default ArrrV-6

Is this the ArrrrV-6 that is painted up in USAF paint scheme? I saw your plane in Cody! My wife and I just flew from Idaho to NY with a “Blue Angles” blue with yellow wingtips RV-7. We did a quick fuel stop, ate breakfast at the restaurant, then continued eastbound. We also got pictures in Yellowstone, and Mt Rushmore. Awesome trip!

My wife and I just passed through here the other day too! We were eastbound from Idaho, and flew into the park at 11,500, circled Old Faithful, just north is Grand Prismatic Spring, then to Yellowstone Falls. Then we followed I-20 though the pass into KCOD. Easy-peasy. I felt there were safe places to land in the case of an emergency the whole time.. the roads and I-20. 11,500 was high enough to feel safe, and low enough to see it all. You can locate the landmarks on google earth, then mark them onto your foreflight.. another highlight was Mt Rushmore. They recommend 7700 feet or above (2000 above the park) and there was a unicom frequency to self announce that ATC provided while we orbited.
