Yellowstone

Old Faithful Geyser

Our Wyoming trip was short. Too short to get a real feel for both Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.  We knew that going in, and planned, at best, a one day-trip into Yellowstone with our main focus on Grand Teton.  But you just cannot travel all that way (for two of us for the first time) and not at least drive up and see Yellowstone.

So, if you are going to Yellowstone, in the afternoon, for a single, day-trip, it seems reasonable, that you would make its most famous of all sights—Old Faithful Geyser—the main destination.

The drive into the park was pretty impressive. The road follows the Lewis River much of the way up to Yellowstone Lake, and there are spectacular deep gorges and canyons. It was mid-day sun and I was driving, so we only captured those images in our minds.

Timing is everything. We rolled into the parking lot for the Old Faithful Lodge and as we walked out toward the geysers, Old Faithful Errupted.

After watching this spectacular site, we walked the boardwalk around with many small geysers and hot springs. I was carried only the G12 point and shoot, but was able to capture some interesting abstract images of the mineral springs and a couple small geysers.

My next trip to Yellowstone will be in the Fall, and though we will concentrate on the plentiful wildlife that abounds there, we are bound to see some of nature’s wonderful landscape also.
