Old Faithful

Norris Geyser Basin
Mammoth Hot Springs

Lower Yellowstone Falls

You guessed it - a bison
We just got back from Yellowstone earlier in the week.  Fantastic scenery.  I was thinking that Old Faithful must be one of the most photographed objects in the world, especially now that everyone carries a camera or cell phone.  In 1958, probably only dad had a camera and he could afford to take only one shot and hope it came out.  I probably took a hundred.  Anyway, the top photo is my contribution to the millions of photographs of Old Faithful out there.  Of course there are bubbling pools, steam vents, and hot springs (roughly half of the worlds visible geothermal features are here).  There are waterfalls but the mountains aren't that spectacular.  We spent a couple of days and saw a lot.  The one thing we didn't see that much of relative to my expectations was wildlife.  Anyway, here is a picture of a bison just to round things out.
