I took a lot of photos with my iPad this time so I could share some of the awesomeness with you.
Upper Geyser Basin has more than 150 geysers in one square mile. We saw geysers everywhere. Some were pools, some were muddy, some just steam vents.
We saw some amazing scenery and Yellowstone Lake was amazing. The West Thumb of the lake was full of geysers and pools as well. Even geyser cones in the water!
It feeds Tower Creek which then feeds into the Yellowstone River.
We actually drove through the park in one day so we saw a lot fast. Except for the time we were stuck in a kong line of traffic because of road work. A flag an had vehicles stopped so only one lane could get through at a time. Strangely, every day on this trip we've encountered road work and flag men. It was always about the time I was hoping for a potty break.
Some were very long waits.
Oh, your pictures are absolutely STUNNING!! I have never been to Yellowstone (my husband has) and I want to take a trip out west with the kids someday soon. It's just so beautiful! Have fun on the rest of your journeys! --Lisa
Thanks for your comments, Lisa. Yes, we had a great time. We saw so much for the amount of time we were there. We even saw a variety of wildlife, including elk, bison, rabbits, badgers, and a number of birds of different species. Even an eagle!
