July 31, we drove to Mammoth Hot Springs, the north entrance at Gardiner, MT. The west and north entrances to Yellowstone are actually in Montana so you cross the Wyoming state border to enter the park. The Roosevelt Lodge is half way around the Grande Loop Road. The road was closed beyond the Lodge so we had to return thru Mammoth on US-89.
