In the morning we packed up and headed out to Grand Teton National Park. At the gate we met a ranger from Indiana, who even told us about another ranger that is from Warsaw! Small world?! Well it gets even smaller! We started to pull away and the guy leans out of his shack and shouts, "I'm a Cardinal too! I went to Ball State! Chirp! Chirp!" Isn't it crazy. I loved it, so rock on Ball State Rock on!
We puttered through the park just checking out the scenery and taking our time to make it to the reunion. Pete fell asleep and we drove through this national park to get to Yellowstone National Park, where the reunion was to be held. We drove through Yellowstone, checked out a couple of auto loops and headed over to the cabin once it was ready for us. A few people were there before us but before the night was over pretty much everyone was there.
Phil and Pete at the lake
Pete holding Robert's hand. He had to hold someone's so he chose Robert!We left once Pete woke up in the morning and were on our way. We only stopped when completely necessary, like Pete screaming for a bathroom and we didn't have any real food left in the car. We only stopped one real place for fun Wall Drug, South Dakota. It is huge tourist trap, but way worth it. I've been before with the venture crew, but they've done even more with it now! They even added a splash pad! Pete wasn't so sure about it, but we've added it as a must for future vacations. But alas I forgot to take my camera in with me, so no pictures!
We finally did make it home the next day. Just in time to go to bed and send Phil off in the morning to a workshop for school! A great trip with wonderful people!
