MOR Explore Yellowstone!

There’s a new children’s exhibit at the Museum of the Rockies. We took a trip over the hill to check out Explore Yellowstone. Big H and Mogie met us there; unfortunately Mogie was having a bit of back pain and had to wait in the truck, but we had a great time with Big H. Mogie did join us for lunch and was regaled with tales by the boys.

The new exhibit is a mini replica of Yellowstone complete with Old Faithful, Mammoth Terraces and the Fishing Bridge. There is a campsite where the boys played in a tent and wore backpacks. They loved fishing from the bridge (and throwing the cutthroat tout back while disposing of the invasive lake trout.)
