Caldera Tales – Day 8: Steamboat Point, Lake Butte Drive, & Sylvan Pass

September 13, 2021 All good things must come to an end... my 2021 "big adventure" and my week of avoiding my "real life" was over and it was time to pack up camp and head back to the opposite corner of Wyoming - an eight hour journey! (Wyoming is big, and Yellowstone is NOT "in… Continue reading Caldera Tales – Day 8: Steamboat Point, Lake Butte Drive, & Sylvan Pass

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. A peek of what… Continue reading Caldera Tales – Day 7: Norris Geyser Basin, Ice Lake, & Little Gibbon Falls

Caldera Tales – Day 6: Mud Volcano & Grand Canyon of Yellowstone

September 11, 2021 It rained overnight, and I strangely enough love camping in the rain (aside from packing up soggy tents). I woke well before sunrise, hoping to get out to West Thumb Geyser Basin for the sunrise. I was happy after days of record high temperatures the weather had turned more seasonal, and I… Continue reading Caldera Tales – Day 6: Mud Volcano & Grand Canyon of Yellowstone

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

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
