Ever since I read Geographic Magazine articles and saw TV docos on Yellowstone, I have always dreamed of visiting it one day. I was excited when we left Cody for the Northern Entrance to the park.
We had a rest stop here at Dead Indian Bluff. I took this shot waiting outside the restroom. It must be the " loo with the best view."
just had to add that.
The Mammoth Hot Springs are terraces of calcium carbonate filled with boiling water, which......
overflows making a spectacular, steaming landscape.
It is on his blog here.
On this same day a hiker in the back blocks was attacked and killed by a grizzly bear, which had a cub.
After lunch we drove on to the Lower Falls in the Yellowstone River Canyon. It was awe inspiring.
(Eat your heart out Betsy and George)
We drove on to the Upper Falls and .......
the Gibbon Falls before leaving the park through the western gate and going to our hotel at West Yellowstone. The next day we would return to see more exotic scenery in this part of the world where the ecosystem hasn't altered much since it was discovered.
