Caldera Tales – Day 4: Biscuit Basin, Mystic Falls, Black Sand Basin, & Upper Geyser Basin

September 9, 2021 I feel like I have to begin the blog for this day with a huge confession... I did not watch Old Faithful erupt on this trip. Whew, now that my confession is off my chest... It is geyser basin day! Chasing all the geysers, all day long! Naturally, I got an early… Continue reading Caldera Tales – Day 4: Biscuit Basin, Mystic Falls, Black Sand Basin, & Upper Geyser Basin
