Caldera Tales – Day 1: Trout Lake, Lost Creek Falls, Petrified Tree, & the Lamar Valley

"Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean." - John Muir September 6, 2021... the day had arrived to head back to one of my favorite places ever, Yellowstone National Park.

Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Days 7 & 8: Midway Geyser Basin, Jenny Lake, Hidden Falls, Colter’s Bay, and Granite Creek Falls

Day 7 - August 28, 2020 Sad, the final morning in Yellowstone. Hindsight is always something that can come into play, and looking back I would've done this day much differently and spent the night off in the national forest near the Hoback Canyon, but alas... hindsight is 20/20. It still wasn't a bad day,… Continue reading Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Days 7 & 8: Midway Geyser Basin, Jenny Lake, Hidden Falls, Colter’s Bay, and Granite Creek Falls

In other words, the geyser chase was about to get serious! It got stormy overnight, and I was awaken… Continue reading Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 6: Fairy Falls, Black Sand Basin, and Upper Geyser Basin

Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 5: Mammoth Hot Springs, Undine Falls, Biscuit Basin, Mystic Falls, and Lower Geyser Basin

Day 5 - August 26, 2020 Early mornings in Yellowstone are special. The cool temperatures create a steam-filled landscape that just puts me in the most special mood. I'm not a morning person at all, but I became a morning person in Yellowstone. Today would have me driving from Madison up to Mammoth Hot Springs… Continue reading Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 5: Mammoth Hot Springs, Undine Falls, Biscuit Basin, Mystic Falls, and Lower Geyser Basin
