We got a later start than intended on our second day visiting Yellowstone because Ollie had an early morning seizure and then fell back asleep for a few hours and we wanted to give him time to fully recover.  

Late morning, we headed to meet the Davids at the Mammoth Hot Springs area of the park and we were even later than we'd imagined because we ran into another herd of bison slowly meandering along.  
 Creed and I called them the Buffalo Parade and were thoroughly entertained, but Larry's Southern Californian Road Rage was surfacing.
 All I could do was giggle and take a picture of how annoyed he was while gently reminding him that we were there to see wild life.

 Palette Springs and the Minerva Terrace were worth the drive
 It was chilly so I forced Creed to wear a warm hat, but don't worry folks, he still wore his Davy Crockett hat in the car.
 He happily hiked up for a view from the top with me while everyone else entertained the babies.

 We stopped at the mudpots on the way home and Creed  liked them so much, we ended up going back the next day.
 We saw a bear, and a wolf from afar while we were in the Mammoth Hot Springs area, but when we got back to West Yellowstone we spent some time at the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center to see them a little bit closer.  Ollie was fascinated and kept saying, "Doggie! Doggie" and pointing to all the bears.

 Creed turned into a Wild Thing while we were there and almost moved in.
