Trip Report - Winter 2005

Lewis and Debra Demler




This is the trip report from our annual winter pilgrimage to Yellowstone.  We have gone before in January, but this was the latest.  This trip report covers the period from Thursday, January 27, 2005 through Tuesday, February 8, 2005.

We flew into Bozeman on Thursday, January 27, 2005.  We stayed at the Best Western in Gardiner from January 27 through January 30.  We took a snowcoach from Mammoth to Old Faithful on January 30.  We stayed at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge Frontier Cabins from January 30 through February 3, returning to Mammoth, by snowcoach, on February 3.  We then got a room at the Best Western in Gardiner from February 3 to February 7.  We finished our trip at the Wingate Inn in Bozeman, staying the night of February 7.  We returned to Pennsylvania on Tuesday, February 8, 2002.

We hope you enjoy reading this Trip Report as much as we did putting it together.  Click on the small pictures if you want to see a larger image.  The videos are rather large, so be patient while they load.
