Barbecue at Fort Jax RV Park

Today, Fort Jax RV Park held a barbecue for those of us spending the summer with them. The barbecue was hosted by Marley, who ate more dog biscuits than anyone else.

Fellow IMAXers were there, including the popcorn girl...

the ticket meister...

the star t-shirt folder...

and the Day-Shift Duo.

Pedra wants everyone to know that, given the chance, she could eat more dog biscuits than Marley.
Chatfield agrees that Pedra could.

The Secret Garden at The Playmill Theatre, West Yellowstone

Tonight (okay, it was really 2 months ago or so) we ventured out to The Playmill Theatre to see this year's production of the musical adaptation of The Secret Garden, a novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

The Playmill Theatre, in its 46th season (that's older than Marlon even!), presented three different Broadway shows this summer: Footloose, Guys and Dolls & The Secret Garden.

The main character of young orphan Annie Lennox was portrayed by Eliza Merrill. She did a fantastic job.

After the show, the cast gathers outside for picture-taking opportunities.

This actress with the big smile looks mysteriously like a Yellowstone IMAX employee...
The Playmill Theatre features a very memorable intermission.

A visit to The Playmill Theatre will definitely be worth your time and money. But you'll have to wait until the 2010 season as the last performance was September 5th.

And no, this is NOT a paid advertisement.

Yellowstone Park with Doug's Parents

Yesterday, Bob and Jean arrived in town and watched the Yellowstone IMAX Movie.

Today, we showed them around Yellowstone.

Norris Geyser Basin is the home of this beautiful blue pool.

A non-painted buffalo grazed near the road.

It was a very windy day at Lower Falls.
A bird has made its nest atop these rocks in the middle of the canyon.
Here's an eerie-looking hole in the volcanic landscape of Yellowstone.

Sulphur Cauldron smells like...sulphur.
Yellowstone Lake is the largest lake at this altitude in the world.
The Kepler Cascades roar along.
The crowd gathers for the next showing of Old Faithful.
These elk wonder: What's Old Faithful?
The HHR makes a great tourmobile.

Midnight at Old Faithful

Ever wonder if Old Faithful erupts in the dark of night? We wondered and we went to see.

It was pretty chilly at midnight.

Marlon couldn't quite make out Old Faithful's eruption.

When driving in Yellowstone, always be aware at Buffalo Crossings.

We happened upon this elk grazing by moonlight.

He acted like Marlon was just another elk and kept on eating.

4th of July Parade & Fireworks, West Yellowstone, Montana

4th of July brings a parade and fireworks even to the small town of West Yellowstone, Montana.

Enjoy the pictures!

Delfino and Candice enjoy the parade.

Wildlife was sighted, as well as one of the snowcoaches used for Yellowstone tours in the dead of winter.

The IMAX Theatre offers movie and carriage ride combo tickets during the height of the summer season.

Locals showed off some of their collectible automobiles in this year's parade.

Here's a unique parade float.

We even saw a scooter-riding clown.

Motorcyclists showed their bikes...

all kinds of them...

The town's Painted Buffaloes will be auctioned off on August 29, as the two-year long Buffalo Roam ends.

The IMAX Theatre Gift Shop had a demonstration of Ne' Qwa Art. In Ne' Qwa, glass ornaments are painted from the inside of the glass.

Don't forget the fireworks!

Watch some of the show below.
