Geysers, Hot Springs & Landscape // Yellowstone National Park, WY
My wife Erin and I set our out-of-office replies, packed our car and headed to Yellowstone back in late July. We made our first stop at a campground in Montana, then arrived in West Yellowstone the following day. After getting a map and making a game plan we spent the next three days in the park. The first night was extremely cold with temperatures in the low 30's/high 20's and even expected snow! The following nights warmed up quite a bit and were a bit more comfortable for tent sleeping. Our fist full day in the park we hit the north loop which took us by the Norris Geyser Basin, Mammoth Hot Springs, and beautiful views filled with clouds and rolling hills. Our second day we hit the south loop which brought us to waterfalls, the shores of Lake Yellowstone and of course Old Faithful! Our third day we had breakfast in town and spent the rest of the day exploring the Upper and Lower Geyser Basins. Erin got to see her buffalo, I got to take LOTS of pictures, and we had a great time exploring together. My dream would be to go back and see the park in all its fall or winter glory!
