The standard fare is $24. We rode for free. The train ride was mildly interesting but our time with Bill and Rena was enormously enjoyable. One more perk of volunteering... meeting nice people! After our train ride we were starving so we had lunch at Ruby House, right across the street from the train station. The decor was interesting, lots of red and velvet.

Saturday we hung out at our campsite. Did lots of exercise and I went grocery shopping solo. I love grocery shopping. It's just a fun outing. Saturday evening we joined our fellow volunteers at the campfire. We have a nice community fire pit within our "volunteer village." Folks frequently gather there in the evening. Again, just a pleasant gathering. A few marshmallows were cooked, we yakked then it rained so we all headed for our campers.

So the Tower.
|First glimpse of tower, way behind Duane|
There were climbers on the rock.
I'm not at risk of joining them.
Oh yeah, we saw a gigantic bear climbing the tower too!
|Ha Ha...just seeing if you're paying attention!|
While driving through the park we encountered more of our precious little friends, the Prairie Dogs. Come on, they're just way too cute. Debbie took a picture or two or fifty!
The drive to and from the tower was around an identified scenic loop. On the way home we stopped at Aladdin, WY. Population 15!
There's one store...
filled with the most incredible display of junk you might ever see.
That's why everyone stops.
We got home safely, ate light and chilled. Another wonderful day!
