Yellowstone is an adventure

This big fellow owned the road. Just ask him!

During our trip across country we were fortunate enough to stop for a couple of days in Yellowstone National Park. What an adventure it was for Sher and me as this was the first trip for both of us. We stayed at the only campground with hookups for RV’s.

Our adventure began before we got to the campground. As we were driving on a

Dragon's Mouth geothermal pool.

road overlooking the Yellowstone Lake we saw traffic stopped. Thinking it might be an accident as the road was narrow with a guardrail on one side and a sheer rock cliff on the other. Well, then we saw the huge bison calmly walking down the road in the middle of the oncoming lane.

Our journey within the park took us to Hayden Valley, where we saw other bison. Here we also saw the Dragon’s Mouth and the Mud Volcano. The scenery was magnificent.

Our second day took us to West Thumb of the Yellowstone Lake. There were the famous wood boardwalks leading around the geothermal pools and geysers.

 

Since I got my undergraduate degree in geology Sher had to put up with my going ape over the geologist’s dream that is Yellowstone.

Steam from the geysers give an almost creepy feel to the scene.
