Wyoming Explored: National Historic Trails Interpretive Center

You have died from dysentery. I've always been obsessed with the Oregon Trail, growing up in Wyoming and spending hours of my elementary school years playing on the game on those gigantic floppy discs.

Caldera Tales – Day 7: Norris Geyser Basin, Ice Lake, & Little Gibbon Falls

September 12, 2021 Sadly my last full day in Yellowstone was here. To make up for the sunrise dud the day before at West Thumb, I was greeted with a spectacular sunrise as I made my way from my campsite at Canyon towards Norris Geyser Basin in the early morning hours.

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
