Bear Canyon Campground
Wednesday morning we awoke at about 6:15 AM and decided that we would start getting ourselves ready to move on down the road. We heard the neighbors start up their rig about 7:15 so knew that we could continue with the outside chores without bothering anyone. We pulled out of Yogi Bear Jellystone RV Park at 7:40 am headed for Bear Canyon Campground in Bozeman, Montana. According to Tom Tom, it was a 216 mile drive across I-90. It was a very cloudy day with us getting only spits of rain all the way. The road was very good and we had no delays. We stopped in Butte, Montana at the Flying J for diesel, propane (which we had not gotten since last March) and a late breakfast. We were able to get diesel for $4.169 lowest we have seen in a very long time. Propane was $2.999 which seems awful to me.
We arrived at Bear Canyon at about 12:30 pm and were assigned to space 27 on the back row but overlooking a beauiful area; fields, mountains and trees.
We have even seen deer out there grazing. We are very happy with the campground. It began to rain and was very cloudy and windy so the rest of the afternoon was spent inside just resting. We also checked out some of the brochures for Yellowstone NP as we want to visit there on Thursday.
Will do a posting on that next.
