Our destination was Fishing Bridge campground which is pretty much in the middle of the park. It was our base for the next four days of sightseeing and photography. This is the bridge but you can't fish off of it any more. The numbers of people fishing reduced the cutthroat trout population sufficiently enough to call a halt to the activity but the name stuck.
On the other side of the bridge is the sign for the Yellowstone River, the longest undammed river in the lower 48 states.
After squeezing our camper into a narrow slot and setting up camp, we headed over to see Yellowstone Hotel. It is a magnificent hotel and by far the most elegant in the park.
Enjoying the view. The hotel, originally built in 1891, and renovated with grand style in 1903, had fallen into disrepair by the 1970's. In 1981 was restored to its original beauty and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The bridge and the river are my Watery Wednesday contributions. The view from the hotel windows is Lake Yellowstone so I guess that counts too. For more beautiful watery posts, check here.
