We explored and enjoyed Yellowstone National Park for two days in a row, thanks to some gorgeous weather!
I have hundreds of photos, but I won't post quite that many :)
Enjoy seeing Yellowstone NP through our eyes!
Here is Day One:
|What a difference a day makes! Yesterday was the Blizzard of Cinco de Mayo!|
The welcoming committees...bison and elk! They would prove to be faithful companions during our time in the park.
|The first bison herd we spotted!|
|Their neighbors: the elk|
First stop is Old Faithful, of course :)
|The next prediction is accurate +/- 10 minutes.|
|We had about 45 minutes to wait, so the kids got busy on their junior ranger workbooks while we explored the visitor center.|
Time to head out for the show :)
|Right on schedule!|
After we saw Old Faithful erupt, we hiked the Geyser Trail on Geyser Hill. We saw some really pretty springs, tiny geysers, and a lot of really stinky holes :)
|Stay on the boardwalk!|
|Lions Head Geyser erupted right after we passed by!|
While exploring more trails around the park,
we found one of our favorite things:
boiling mud pits!
More wildlife greet us:
|A gorgeous Mountain Bluebird! (Sorry it's blurry, still getting used to|
our new camera.)
|Yes... a male grizzly bear!|
(He's in the middle of the picture.)

Good night Yellowstone...we'll see you in the morning!
