Trip Report - Winter 2003

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 16, 2003 through Tuesday, January 27, 2003.

We flew into Bozeman on Thursday, January 16, 2003.  We stayed at the Best Western in Gardiner from January 16 through January 20.  We took a snowcoach from Mammoth to Old Faithful on January 20.  We stayed at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge Frontier Cabins from January 20 through January 25, returning to Mammoth, by snowcoach, on January 25.  We then got a room at the Best Western in Gardiner from January 25 to January 27.  We finished our trip at the Wingate Inn in Bozeman, staying the night of January 27.  We returned to Pennsylvania on Tuesday, January 28, 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.
