From Red Mountain campground, we headed into Bozeman. We took a dip into the Bozeman Hotsprings. which were very comercialized but wonderful. Ate lunch at the Deli at Four Corners and then gave Ben's Great Aunt Lina a call to see if we could come and visit. She is 94 years old and had no idea who Ben was but was happy to have us come and visit. We showed up at her house and she still did not remember Ben, yet proceeded to call everyone in the family to come and see us. She even took us for a spin to see her brother at his adult care facility. This was quite a ride.
Headed out for Bozeman to visit Ben's family. We peddaled up our first big pass called Norris Pass. We saw on the map that there were some hotsprings to be had. Unfortunately the Norris Hotsprings do not open until 4 o'clock in the afternoon. As we vowed not to do any backtracking we were unable to enjoy a soak. The road out to Red Mountain campgrpound was narrow and scary at time but we survived.

On Sunday we decided to take a little drive with Sam and Norma into Teton NAtional Park and Yellowstone since it was pouring down raine. The roads were really great in Teton or at least passable. Yet, once we crossed into Yellowstone the shoulder disappeared. This is a pic of us waiting in the snow for Old Faithful to do its thang.
