Blog for the day (Saturday, 21 July 2012):
Writing this a day late. We got a lift from the campsite to somewhere else, I got to check where, because we were not allowed to cycle on certain roads as a group or something like that. The ride was most amazing with the scenery just blowing me away. The roads were in good condition and the drivers in the main, pretty darn good. Old Faithful was very touristy, but only to be expected. I stayed for a few hours checking out the other hot springs and geysers. Fantastic and a must if your ever there. Such a fantastic day, lovely weather and hardly no headwind. I do wish the chinks, or is it the japs, would cover their mouths when they cough and not do it in my face! I may have more respect for them and name them better. As it was, I told them to cover their ** mouths! Lol. They also walk around blowing snot out their noses, not into tissues or hanky's, no wonder their country is filthy and always the first to start major global flu’s. I had a pulled pork sarnie there too, but no where near as good as the one in Williamsburg all those months ago. Also have no idea what side of the continental divide I am on. Help.

We are staying in West Yellowstone and in Montana now, very nice little town. Again, very touristy, but hey, its still nice. The area is a bubbling mass of hot springs, mud pools and geyesrs and could blow at any moment. Such a joy to cycle through instead of driving and hanging out the window trying take snaps. I saw another buffalo at the entrance to Old Faithful, but am not sure if it was a pantomime version, a beaver or something like it, and some young elk. A good days riding

Sorry, lots of pics:
