Yellowstone Vacation -- Day 5

We drove back an hour to The Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. 

It is a the battlefield where a major battle was fought on June 25th between the Lakota, Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians against the United States Army The tribes were fighting to preserve their traditional way of life and the US was fighting for westward expansion.  We saw the hill where Custer had his last stand. 

I did not like walking around the monument because of this is considered Rattlesnake Territory.

 If you know anything about me you know I am deathly afraid of snakes and most animals.  The Native Americans had a really neat memorial across the way from the hill of Custer’s last stand.  

Next back in the car for another hour to Bighorn Canyon and the Yellowtail Dam. Lodge Grass Montana.   We found this little dam however we did not find the dam we were looking for, we were very disappointed.  

Back on the road we went for four more hours to Yellowstone!  

Yeah!  We made it here!  Uggggh!  It’s raining!  .
