Being so close to Yellowstone had it’s advantages. We could hope on over there after about a thirty minute drive and get in free thanks to mom and dad’s Golden Passport which provides for free entry for life. Between our trips over there and the cabin the kids found time to entertain themselves with wooly worms that we foundThese characters were plenty fuzzy and plenty hungry! I don’t know how they survived some of the cold mornings that actually had some frost but they did! When we weren’t entertaining worms we were walking in one wonderful area after the next and I never get tired of that! Stopping for lunch found us in some beautiful country and I had to take a picture or two of what we were seeing No visit to Yellowstone would be complete without going to see Old Faithful While I’ve seen it before and seen many eruptions that are on the clock pretty accurate I don’t think I’ve seen any two eruptions that are the same. We found a good seat and watched as Old Faithful sputtered before the big eruption We knew the time was coming when the nearby Beehive geyser erupted and then Old Faithful started to get serious Nothing matches the thrill of the big eruption and though this time the eruption was relatively short it was still spectacular to behold ! I find the punctuality of this geyser to be simply amazing I captured the last of the eruption on video
After viewing Old Faithful we thought we’d go check out the Old Faithful Lodge.. It’s world famous and had a lot of people there. It took me some time to get a shot of the spectacular staircase with nobody around . They still have the old style bus at the lodge. It felt like a glance back in time to witness these vehicles Can you imagine throwing your luggage in this thing and spending some time around here I’m not sure I can imagine the cost of such a thing. I like the old park seal on the side of the bus I think Gabby enjoyed exploring the outside of these places as much as the inside and I have to admit the outside was rather spectacular
The week has been full of filling out papers for things that need to be done for Ghana and with working with the kids on their first week of school. I have to admit it’s been full enough where I’m ready for a long weekend…how about you?
