Due to the stand-off situation in the White house over the health care issues, the government shutdown of all non-essential services out here in America has affected our travel plans.
We intended to travel through Yellowstone National Park amongst others. All national parks and monuments have been closed and barricaded off, no visitors are allowed through.
We think the situation will be a lengthy one so back to the maps to work a favourable route south avoiding parks and the weather.
We are really disappointed to have not had the chance to explore more of Yellowstone and other great parks but at least we did get in on Sunday to see some of it including old faithful.
