Greetings from Yellowstone National Park

We were camping in Yellowstone on June 13, 2001 when we got 12 to 14 inches of snow that night. The only place to go was to the restaurant n large meeting room where we stayed with hundreds of other people all day.You got a number when to eat n we all had the same for brunch. We taught people from around America how to play a card game called Dutch Blitz. We all had to stay put as the roads were not opened till later that day. What a day n night to remember in June camping in a freak snowstorm.

Sincerely,
Judy
