Day 39... Got up early which has been the trend for this stretch. It has also been easy to get up on time because dad wakes us up around 5:45 which is generous because he usually jumps out of his tent between 4:45 and 5:00. I made breakfast, we had oatmeal and bananas tea and coffee a la annie and went back to yellowstone to finish the drive. Saw more thermal features but the sulpher smell was a little harder to stomach this early in the morning. We saw another buffalo, beautiful waterfalls and the yellow stones for which the park was named for. Then it was back on the road for a 7Hr drive through amazing mountains which were the big horn mts. (Which was the range that the battle of little big horn was fought at) the drive was as beautiful as being in the park making it easier to put the hours of driving in. We made it to mt rushmore area around 11pm, set up camp and mom called and told us about a meteor shower best viewed in the north central usa... Right where we are, Thanks mom! We were right on time for the peak and stayed up for a few hours to watch the beautiful light show. Then to bed to get up early once again :-)
