We made it in to our campsite, still raining, though it let up enough to set up tents, put a pavilion over the picnic table and heat up our chili for the baked potatoes. Ellie was tired and grumpy at this point and the temperature was dropping. I decided to sleep with Ellie in the back of the car. She did ok, but I didn't sleep well at all. I was worried all night about her getting cold and suffocating under our blankets. The next day it was still rainy, so we decided to pack up and spend the rest of the day in Yellowstone and then drive to Driggs and spend the night there. We got to see more of Yellowstone and even finally saw some wildlife. We stopped and had dinner in Jackson and enjoyed the beautiful view of the Tetons on the way in. Of course, the day we drove home was absolutely beautiful. We stopped in Lava Hot Springs for a dip in the hot springs. Ellie had a blast. Overall the trip was pretty exhausting and not a total success, but I'm still glad we went and we still had fun. At least we made some great first camping memories!
