1 - As we got to Old Faithful, one of the nearby geysers decided to blow.

Another full day of great sites and pictures.

 

Back into Yellowstone for another day, but with the road in under construction we couldn’t start until they opened the road. Long waits and bad traffic made our first stop at the Old Faithful Geyser at nearly noon. And of course, it doesn’t just go off the minute you show up.  So we waited and finally got a nice show and lots of pictures.  We ate lunch at the Lodge there at the Geyser and then continued our tour of the other geysers and sulphur springs.  We got to see a few real nice waterfalls too. Finally, near then end of the day we were up north in the Mammoth Hot Springs area.  We toured to Hot Springs and got several pictures.

 

Just to let you all know, the fire we had seen burning the day before had been burning for a few days, back in the back woods area, and most of it had been controlled. Very good news. Today, we still saw some smoke but not nearly as much as the day before.

 

Today was not as good as yesterday at seeing animals.  We only saw, a pelican, a coyote, and a few elk.  Only one elk was photographed.

They are still discussing the possibility of another earthquake/volcanic activity in that park for the not so near future? Love your pics!
