I went scooting on a whim yesterday, intending to visit Old Faithful. As usual, whims come a little late in the day. I try to not drive after dark because of poor dim vision. Scoot does not have serious driving lights as I (or anyone) would require in unlighted twisty windy mountain roads wet from rain. Fortunately I made it back just a whisper short of total darkness, well after sundown. Safely.
As usual for Yellowstone, I was rained on. Storm clouds gather and dissipate throughout the mountains before your eyes. Sometimes they shower on you.
Also, a missed turn resulted in a 140 mile round trip ride turning into a 222 mile ride, chewing up my calculated margin for getting home before dark. But I did so by minutes.
I did stop a few times to restore circulation to my butt and legs, to put on/off rain gear, and yes, to your amazement, take a pic or two. The pics may be viewed in the gallery below. Click on any picture to view as a slide show.
The unfortunate thing is that my camera screwed up 29 of my pics, making them useless. Not operator error! Some of my best pics! First time ole reliable has done that to me. By definition those were my best shots!
