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

Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 6: Fairy Falls, Black Sand Basin, and Upper Geyser Basin

Day 6 - August 27, 2020 The day of hydrothermal madness. The day I'd see something like 25% of the world's geysers in a one square mile area, and the world's largest concentration of hot springs. 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

I'm not talking about extreme early mornings, but getting to places at 7:30am greatly increases the positive visitor experience! I packed up and headed out of Canyon Campground with a mug… Continue reading Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 4: Artist Point, Norris Geyser Basin, Artists’ Paint Pots, Monument Geyser Basin, and Firehole Lake Drive

Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 3: West Thumb Geyser Basin, Mud Volcano, and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River

Day 3 - August 24, 2020 It's Yelly-stone Day, it's Yelly-stone Day!! Seriously, I'm not an early bird, but I sprung up out of my sleeping bag at 5am, ready to get the show on the road and head into Yellowstone National Park for the first time in 29 years. Volcanos! Waterfalls! Geysers! Bubbling mud!… Continue reading Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 3: West Thumb Geyser Basin, Mud Volcano, and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River

Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 2: Fitzpatrick Wilderness Hiking

Day 2 - August 23, 2020 Because I was unable to change my camping reservations on short notice in Yellowstone, I decided to kick it around the Dubois area for a day before heading into the park. I delved into researching hikes, and learned about Whiskey Mountain (11,1547 feet) and Lake Louise that were fairly… Continue reading Of Geysers & Waterfalls – Day 2: Fitzpatrick Wilderness Hiking
