Yes, they do work! The rugs stay put while Mama vacuums and we don't slide on the floor. Mama is very pleased with them. She went back to the store and bought more and now vacuuming is a breeze. She does not know how well they would hold up in a washing machine, but our rugs are not machine washable so it does not matter to us. The part that sticks to the floor is supposed to come up easily. I guess we will find out if that is true when it is time to replace the rugs. BOL! They are carried in other stores other than Camping World. She saw them at Fred Meyer this week. They probably carry them all over.
Best Bully Sticks is having a good sale. They are offering 15%. The code is in our sidebar. We wish we could order. We do not have mail service here and it would cost us way too much to have them shipped to our mailing address and then forwarded on to us at a later time. We are having withdrawals as we are out. Mama found a pet store here and bought us a few bones yesterday. It is not the same though.

The Greyhound Who Is No Longer Sliding Across The Floor

The park only has animals that are native to this area. Some of the animals are in enclosures such as the bear, cats and birds that have been injured and cannot fly. The bison, elk, moose, caribou are allowed to roam freely. There is a tram that takes visitors through the area that the animals roam. The tram ride is included in the admission price and it can be taken as many times as you like for no additional charge. The tram ride takes about an hour and Mama said it was really nice. She said some of the animals were close enough to touch.

|Bison that did not want to get out of the way of the tram.|
|Mama and Baby Bison|
|Someone lost this. The park leaves these for the animals to consume.|
|The animals have a lot of area to roam.|
|Bent tree due to heavy snow according to guide.|
|Black bear - the enclosure is so much nicer than in a zoo.|
|Lots of tall trees.|
The park has a zip line, but the folks didn't do that. BOL!
The Greyhound Who Loves Being A Gypsy

|These were delivered last week.|
|I guess they expected people here without indoor plumbing.|
I really enjoyed going out at night because people lined up on the sidewalk to watch the cars go by. They squeaked a toy horn to try and get the cars to honk at us and if they did, everyone hooted and howled. It was fun! I even thought about howling, but I didn't. I love being in crowds like that. We met some kids while we were watching the cars and they petted us. We were very popular. We talked to people from Canada, California and Oregon. Last night, I couldn't wait to go out and join the crowd, but they had all gone home. I was really sad.
We took a few pictures of the cars, but we didn't get too many.
|The action is over there. That is where I should be.|
|But Mom, I want to go over there.|
|Scout enjoyed being out in the crowds too.|
|There is a surf board on the roof.|
|This one has a Teddy Bear hanging out.|
|We don't know what this is. Anyone know?|
|We then made a cobbler.|
The Greyhound Who Likes Living At The Fairgrounds

|We just need to follow the signs.|
The folks immediately headed to a section of the park called Paradise because they wanted to eat lunch at the lodge. They ate lunch in Paradise. BOL!
The arrived in time for Sunday brunch. Mama was shocked at the price. It was $25.50 a person. YIKES! Dad said they were there, so they were going to eat.
|This is the mail box at the lodge.|
|People lounging in the lodge.|
|Snow in the waterfall.|
|The trees are bent due to the amount of snow they hold up each year. They have an average of 26-30 feet of snow each year.|
Mama said they were on the lookout for animals, but only saw two chipmunks. One chipmunk ran out into the road and was killed by the car in front of them. :-( Mama was hoping to see other wildlife. She prefers to see wildlife that is alive. BOL!
They didn't walk on any trails due to not having much time. Basically, it was a 5 hour round trip. They may go back before we leave here and explore other parts of the park.
Dogs are allowed in parking lots and in the campground, but not on trails due to the wildlife. I doubt we will get to go.
