Another beautiful day!

Hi there everyone, We have had a couple more lovely days in Yellowstone. Yesterday we drove all the way down to Old Faithful and got there 5 minutes before it went off! Saw lots of other amazing thermal features in the area. It really makes you wonder about the stability of the ground you are standing on. But it was quite a long drive from the north entrance. Today we returned to the Lamar River valley for some fishing and bison watching. Still working on photos. Love you all. Wendy Okay lots of photos again So Above are pics from the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River. Look at the color on the canyon sides! These are photos of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone River and Uncle Tom's Trail to an overlook by the falls. Michael made that hike without me. As you see on the sign it is 328 steps at 8000 feet above sea level! The first pic is Old Faithful followed by other thermal features in the area. The colorful photo with green and gold shows the thermophilic bacteria that live in the hot water, the gold bacteria live in the hotter water and others that live in cooler water make the green color. And there I am standing in the middle of the Biscuit Basin area. And one last one of a bison who was rolling in the soda near one of the feature just off the Firehole River.
