“Where are you guys planning on spending the night?” the Yellowstone park ranger asked.

We figured on reaching one of the southern campgrounds. But the ranger had other ideas.

“That area is full of bears who are just waking up from their winter sleep. They’re VERY HUNGRY at this time of year,” he stressed.

“Follow me (his ranger car) and you can camp behind the station. I’ll open the toilets for you, and you should be fine.”

What a service!
