As we made our way deeper into the park heading towards Cabin Lodge and Cabins within the Canyon Village, we made several stops to admire the Yellowstone Lake and some of the scenic points along the way. We knew that where we were going to be staying was close to the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and the Lower Yellowstone Falls but we hadn't realised or anticipated the scale of this place. Its massive and the drive through took far longer than we had expected, which meant it was quite late, (7ish) by the time we arrived at check in. Once all the paperwork was done and check in complete, we emerged from the lodge into total darkness. It was quite a task to locate our cabin which was another considerable drive and we felt very accomplished indeed by the time we found it, and got all the bags in from the car and settled in. We were initially surprised that the room had no TV, no Wifi..........."eek does this mean we have to talk to each other?" but then we relaxed and felt a kind of giddy pleasure at being totally offline and unreachable. The lack of TV wasn't an issue, we both wanted to eat and sleep, so after a quick and easy make do meal in our room, i took a super long soak in the huge bath,while Suzy (my cousin) repacked her case and generally re-organised our stuff ready for an early start the next day.
