Road Trip Part 3: Pictograph Cave and Little Bighorn

 Hello Yellowstone National Park! Although it was a little out of our way we both decided that we couldn't be this close and not take the opportunity to gawk at this beautiful preserve.

 Immediately following entry into the park we were greeted by wildlife!

We stopped off along a couple of roads and made a quick trip to Mammoth Hot Springs before it got too dark...not to mention rainy.

What a view! We definitely want to make plans to come back equipped with more appropriate weather gear.

Now it's back on the road heading to Billings Montana! We found a directory of sights and attractions to see and decided that first thing the next morning we would venture to the Pictograph Cave State Park.

We were both pleasantly amused at this little guy enjoying an early morning breakfast right along the walking path that lead to the caves.

 What a view!

Ben and I both agreed that this place was an unexpected and ethereal gem.

It was so interesting to learn about the pictures and meanings and how different markings show at different times in the year due to mineral changes.

This was the view looking out from the caves.

Thistles and yellow wildflowers

Leading the way!

Say cheese Ben!

On the way back to our truck, this little guy poked his head out to check us out!

 Words will never express how powerful an experience it was for both Ben and me. 

We both felt very moved by this monument and the equal representation of both sides of this battle were respectfully included at this site.

This was definitely hollowed and sacred ground.
