Yellowstone Rest Day

Today Mary and I toured Yellowstone looking at geysers, fumorals and mud pots. Many people were creating traffic jams while taking pictures of very lazy bison. I'll let Mary work her magic and publish a few of the pictures we took.

The rear bike tire has been replaced. I'm looking forward to riding again tomorrow when I cross the continental divide for the second and third time on this trip. I think I cross it twice more. Several people have asked when we will arrive in Des Moines and, Pella Iowa and in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I should have a good timeline in place by next Monday. Before I can give an answer, I need a few days of steady riding on the plains without any mountain passes, summits or the 7% grades that were neither a summit or a pass. Out of 16 days bicycling, all but three have had a challenging climb at the beginning, middle or end or some combination of all three.
