In just the first day, we had big success in terms of wildlife sightings. Watch the video to get a peek through the eyes of the first-time Yellowstone visitors- the students of Plant Functional Ecology.

After uneventful flights (fortunately) we spent a couple of hours in Bozeman stocking up on supplies and groceries and headed to Jardine (a gold mining town outside of Gardiner) and the Sunny Slope/Bear Lair Lodge/ Cub's Cache . After picking our sleeping quarters a group of the crew got spaghetti and sauce with cheesy garlic bread going for dinner. A much needed quick meal after a long day of travel. Tomorrow we will head out at 6AM to look for wildlife and then head into Gardiner Basin to get oriented and begin science. Stay tuned as we gear up for a great 2 weeks.
