Yellowstone Day Three
Can’t believe it’s already Yellowstone Day Three! It is always exciting to see Bison. Today there is Bison in the fields and even one that wandered along the road. That was a treat in itself to see a Bison so close and not trying to view one while driving by. Traffic is at a stand still until a Park Ranger came to make sure there weren’t any people foolish enough to get out of their cars and scratch these ears!
Grand Prismatic Spring
Yesterday we walked along the trails of the Grand Prismatic Spring and Turquoise Pool. Because this is one of the most spectacular sites to visit we took a different route to view it. Today we took a hike on a hill above the basin that gives us a fantastic view of the colors. Our granddaughter was so excited about this, as this is what she talked about most of the trip. The colors were just incredible and you could see more of the spring because it was warmer outside which created less steam coming up from the hot water.
Along the Firehole River
The spring run-off is in full swing in Yellowstone, and the rapids and falls on the Firehole River are breathtaking. We took several breaks along the river to take in the sights. According to the staff, this year has more rain than normal, so every river we either drove by or stopped at was overflowing and moving swiftly.
Mamma Moose and Baby
A must-see for our daughter was to see a moose, and today is her lucky day. Up close we could see a Mama Moose and her baby. On the way back to Henry’s Lake from Yellowstone we spotted the two of them and had just enough space to pull over to watch them. Oh what a joy it was to see and everyone was very excited because we could get some good moose pictures to remember our Yellowstone visit.
Back at Base Camp: Henry’s Lake
Another full day at Yellowstone,! We are ready to kick back and re-join Jeff back at our base camp at Henry’s Lake State Park across the border in Idaho. Jeff was not able to make today’s trip because he is recovering from falling off the ladder while trying to wash the RV’s front window in May.
