Today was geyser and thermal feature day. There are several different areas in Yellowstone - amazing how different they are.
Driving south towards the "Old Faithful" area - we happened upon a elk. Cool to see them up close.
When you travel most of the way across the country, you just have to see "Old Faithful" - luckily, we arrived just 10 minutes before the predicted next eruption. Neat to have seen it - but several of the other geysers were actually more interesting.
Love, love, loved the springs and pools.
Crossed paths with some more bison - this time a bit too close!
We waited about 2 hours to see the "Grand Geyser" - well worth the wait - it was spectacular! Plus, we were allowed to be very close to this one (we were a long way from Old Faithful).
The Old Faithful Village was lovely - look at that beautiful blue sky!!
More thermal pools - we saw what seems like millions of them!
Took a hike along a beautiful stream...
More thermal pools....
And more bison on the way to our next room in the park - this time at Grant Village.
View of the Yellowstone Lake....
And this deer was grazing as we approached our room.
