Great trip

J&S at Firehole Falls

We sure enjoyed our trip to Yellowstone.  What fun! .  It turns out they actually opened Old Faithful Inn on the day we arrived.  We were fortunate to get Room #54. You can lie in bed in that room and watch Old Faithful erupt.  Friday evening we hiked around through some of the many of geysers on the other side of the Firehole River.  No matter how many times we've seen Old Faithful keap into the sky, we don't get tired of the sight.  It's inspiring and awesome.  Maybe that's why people come from around the world to look at it.

Saturday we took a long road trip--8 hours.  We went from Old Faithful to West Thumb, Grant Village, Lake Village, Lake Hotel, Canyon District, Yellowstone Falls, Norris Geyser Basin, Madison Junction, Firehole Falls and then back home through Lower, Midway and Upper Geyser Basins.

All-in-all, we probably saw a few hundred buffalo.  We also got lucky and observed a grizzly bear Saturday afternoon.

Sunday was a real leisure day and we lolly-gagged our way home, arriving about 4 pm.  As usual, we have way too many photos.  We will try to get some posted tomorrow.
The 7:30 am Sunday morning sun shines through Old Faithful.
