Thank you so much for sharing your experience and pictures.  I too am going to take that trip to Yellow Stone in my future, so your thoughts and experience is very illuminating for me as well.  Some of those pictures are breathtaking.  Big smile

My TV is of similar engine configuration to yours, so I would like to hear how the hills and mountains were.  What kind of gas milage are you getting?  How many miles and hours are you driving before you bunk down for the night?  Thanks for the information and enjoy your trip.  Star

I really had no problems on the Interstates, on some of the smaller roads we just slowed down a bit, but we got up the hills. I'm getting about 10MPG.  On the days we want to make some ground we generally travel about 450-500 miles/day. That allows time for a couple of stops.

We made it to Yellowstone's Edge RV Park, just north of Gardiner. MT and the North entrance to Yellowstone.
 Just a couple of new pictures today.

Livingston Roundup on the Fourth of July with fireworks. A really great rodeo experience. What a way to see and feel America!

Great photos! Is the oil spill bearing down on you? We were there in October 2009 and the river was nowhere near as high.

The oil spill is North of the park by about 100 miles. The Yellowstone River travels north, so the park is safe.

This as some awesome place. Saw 3 grizzlies, and a black bear today.
