Half way up the Pass we stopped at a look-off area and loved the views but more so, the antics of the little chipmunks.
We were getting closer to Mammoth Hot Springs which was our only chance of camping in the Park. Being a long weekend we knew we had next to no chance of getting a camp spot. The traffic by this stage was ridiculous. It was very hot by end of day so our only choice was to ride to Gardiner, not far outside the Park.
