|The new yard of the two RV Gypsies - Fairmont RV Park, Anaconda, Montana in Silver Bow County Near Fairmont Hot Springs. The campground had free Wi-Fi and full-hook-ups, but NO TV. This was just a short stop for the two RV Gypsies on the way to Yellowstone National Park. Karen spent the time at Fairmont Hot Springs getting a manicure and pedicure with foot wrap.

|Fairmont Hot Springs Resort is a full service, year-round hot springs resort located between Butte and Anaconda, just 3 miles south of Interstate 90 and half way between Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park. There is a large outdoor pool and a smaller indoor pool. When the two RV Gypsies were there, the outdoor pool and slide were closed for maintenance, but re-opened the day the two RV Gypsies left. Karen did enjoy the indoor pool, but it lacked that atmosphere of real hot springs like she found in Liard and Chena. This was more of a swim in a warm swimming pool then a real hot springs experience. However, Karen did enjoy a nice manicure and pedicure while there.
