We set up out tents and ate dinner, then some guys wanted to go see an elk that was nearby. I tagged along and when we were crossing a small creek I must've landed on my right leg funny because the next thing I know, its broken. Just my luck. Everything turned out alright, I got a piggyback ride out of the woods, into the back of the SUV and driven down the mountain. An ambulance met us at a gas station and they took it from there. I spent the next 5 days at a hospital in Livingston, MT--which is a nearby town. Let me tell you, their hospital is fabulous. It has enough beds for about 20 patients, and each person has their own room. I had a view of the mountains from my hospital bed and wild animals, like moose, tend to come onto hospital property.
I guess it was a beautiful place to break my leg, plus the surgeon was amazingly skilled at fixing broken tibia/fibulas since they seem to see a lot of them.
I plan to go back for a visit when I have the money. I never officially got to see Yellowstone, just the parts I could see from the campsite.
