Forks or Bust: Day 2

Boy, were we sore this morning! We took a morning dip in the hot pots to loosen up our muscles, then a short two hour drive to our next stop—

Just a few minutes outside of Rexburg (I'm a proud alum of BYU-Idaho, formerly known as Ricks College).

We stopped for a photo opp at the gates.
We were going to get photos of us stradling the bears on either side of the gate, but see the back end of that red truck? That was a park ranger. He nixed our plans real fast. (Party pooper.)

Because it's barely spring and it was late warming up, there weren't a lot of bears around, but we saw a few. Here are Nichole (left) and Sarah (right) being crazy people, hanging out the windows trying to tempt the bears to eat them.

About mid-way through the Bear World drive, we found some old friends getting ready for brunch. . .

As we left the park, we saw Mercy.

Oops! Wrong book.
