Merry Christmas (in Yellowstone)

August the 25th, 1988, I was with a group in Cody, Wyoming at the Rider Rally while Yellowstone burned. Some of the guys went to ride Beartooth Pass while Brian and Wayne went to see Old Faithful. The got trapped there for the night when a backfire got out of control and closed the road. They slept on the hotel lobby floor and ate outrageously priced sandwichs while staff told them of the Christmas in Yellowstone tradition.

So Merry Christmas, Yellowstone Park people.

BTW, I had my quarterly doctor's appointment today. Based on all the factors, he tells my I have an 81% chance of NOT having a heart attack in the next ten years. I hope he is more accurate than the weatherman:-)
