Yellowstone II | Personal

We stayed a couple of nights here in Canyon Country.  It was beautiful.  They call it the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.  We hiked the North rim and down the Red Rock trail for a closer view.  Later in the day we drove over to Mud Volcano which was crazy cool.  The whole park amazed me really.  So many things can kill you.  There were thermal features all over the place and things I’ve never seen.  After Canyon country we made our way to Geyser country via Lake country.  In Lake Country we found this little hidden spot that was fun to get to.  We explored West Thumb basin and then ended our day with a hike to Lone Star Geyser.  It was about a 3 hour hike roundtrip and really cool to see a geyser in the middle of nowhere!!

This was crazy just on the side of the road – Sulphur Caldron

Lots of bison in the park and sometimes they like to stop traffic.

We found this little hidden spot called Sand Point.  We had to walk through a very buggy forest and traverse these logs in water to get there though.

Stopped and checked out West Thumb basin which included Geysers in Yellowstone lake!  This is not a normal lake!

I think this was my favorite geyser because it was in the middle of nowhere, took some effort to get too and I like the cone geysers.
