Mallard’s Rest from Scenic 89

Mallard’s Rest from Scenic 89

Originally uploaded by miss_distance

Campground (below in this shot) is where I spent the night… right on the Yellowstone River. I drove down to Chico Resort Hot Spring around 7PM, and paid $6.50 to soak my bones for an hour or so in the wonderful warm open-air mineral hotspring pool (!), watching the storm-clouds swirling and gusting above me. As I left, the misting rain turned to hail and then horizontal snow, but I made it back to Mallard’s Rest and was still warm from the hotspring when I curled up to go to bed, rocked to sleep by gusting wind.
