Saw this canyon today and many other beautiful sights. Taking a lot of pictures. Hope to see some bears soon as I brought plenty of graham crackers.

They are real bears not stumps that I told Aunt Bessie they were. I heard them growl. My they were fierce.

We are at Old Faithful tonight. Last night we stayed at Canyon. Luverne said she awakened early & saw some gal headed for the wash rooms & her bath-robe pulled tightly around her trying to look 6 directions at once. I guess she thought she’d be a juicy breakfast for a hungry bear.

Thought you might be interested in the architecture - Old Faithful Inn. Had an elegant trip through the Park. Mrs. D and I met some bears. She ran one way & the bears the other. Don’t know which was the most scared. Arrived Los Angeles this afternoon. It is a beautiful city. Received your letter at Yellowstone.

Yellowstone Park July 4
I have been seeing today, bears that look like this. I did think of sending you one by mail - parcel post - but was afraid he’d raise the old scratch.
With love, Grandpa

All is well, enjoying ourselves greatly. Bears have not eaten any of us yet all though we saw some.
Good bye, love to all

Rudy insists he saw this bear with the seat of your pants in his mouth. I think Ray helped him with a few of the details. Lunch here and on our way soon.

We are looking over this Park. Last night we saw the bears fed, heard a lecture about the bears and attended a campfire meeting. We think it is very interesting.

Bears like this are all about us. I saw 3 today all up the same tree. Am sending this chap to you. Feed him good but don’t let him nip your fingers.

Got a Cabin with “Old Faithful” in our back yard. We spent most of the day feeding the Bears. Betty took more pictures of them. I do hope they come out OK. We have spent 2 days in the Park. We will head for the Tetons tom.

I have been in Yellowstone for a week now. Our cabin is in the main geyser basin so we can see plenty of geysers. I have seen plenty of bears too, but some of them get a little too “friendly.”

This country is all that it is cracked up to be and more. It is wonderful! We have seen a mess of bears - Grizzly and Black, Moose, Buffaloes, loads of deer, elk, ducks etc. There are lots of fish in the streams too. A fellow could spend a couple of weeks here easily.

We see most everything from Grizzly Bears to Mud Geysers.

We have been having a wonderful trip thru the park. There are surely beautiful things to see here. The nights are plenty cold and the bears plenty friendly. We are starting home soon.

We landed in the Park at 5 P.M. today. Everything is going fine. The bears sure are tame in the Park.
So long Clem

Here we are where the wild bears grow & where the nights are pretty cold. Betty Lou is enjoying all she sees & will remember it for a while at least. Will spend the rest of today here & will come back through if you meet us in Butte.
