Tepee Sleeping

Sleep in a tepee? How can I resist?

Yellowstone Under Canvas, right outside of Yellowstone National Park is where I couldn't resist staying.  To stay in a tepee was cheaper than a hotel, and not only was I trying to conserve money, but I was looking for a new and fun experience.  The accommodations come in a variety of sizes and bathing options including tipis for up to four guests and safari tents with beds.

I just got the regular tepee, it had three cots (all of which had 3 sleeping bags and a pillow on it), a chair, a table, a lantern and bear spray.

Unfortunately my friend didn't get in until the next day, so I stayed alone.  At first I was a little nervous.  As much as I love the outdoors, I am also a scardy cat when it comes to bugs...and bears.  I wasn't counting on being nervous of bears.  It was also a bit chilly.

I didn't sleep too well because I am not used to falling asleep on my back, confined to a bag/cot and thinking about bears.

But it was fun and I am glad I got to try it. I would definitely do it again if I had a man (or a friend) with me...someone with more experience in outdoorsy stuff.
