We got to ride one more time in the snow coach on the way out of the park. Took a quick stop at Kepler’s Cascade where waaaaay back in the day, some dude lost his horse and was stuck out there for a little over 30 days in the snow! He somehow survived by staying warm near the thermal features of the area. Can you even imagine surviving for a month without modern gear?? The dude didn’t even have pockets in his pants! Pockets hadn’t been invented yet!??!! Insane!
So we knew we were going to drive out to Jackson Hole to do some skiing between Christmas and New Years, but we decided to schedule a last minute stay in Yellowstone National Park.
Apparently people book their holidays at Yellowstone out a year before, well, not us! I think we booked about a month ago. And it's not just ensuring there’s availability at the Snow Lodge either, you have to book space in a vintage Bombardier snow coach since the roads are closed to normal traffic once the snow starts falling.
