The boiling water was SO blue. It's hard to tell since it was an overcast day.
Rabbit ears. :)
After this we went to see Old Faithful. Something everyone has heard about since childhood, and something I've always wanted to see.
We got there right before it erupted. It goes off about every 90 minutes or so.
There were a lot of people there.
All the clouds in the sky kinda took away from it, but it was still so neat to see.
It erupts for 2-5 minutes, depending on how much pressure has built up.
Our lasted about 3 minutes.
The ones I love.
Next we went to Geyser Basin. Another interesting place on this earth.
See that little dot? Guess what it is...
There was some great driftwood out there. Some people took pictures of their families in it...
That's going to be a great shot!
Next we went to see the Paint Pots. They bubble and boil and are very muddy.
Kinda hard to catch the bubbling action with a still camera. lol
We left here and headed toward the Montana State Line and guess what we saw!
Bison and their babies.
More dangerous, unpredictable, and aggressive than bears people get too close to these all the time and get injured. Just a few weeks ago a woman got tossed 15 feet into the air when one came after her when she got too close to try to get some video. The camera was still on and caught the whole thing. If I were her I think I would have kept that video to myself. It kinda tells people how DUMB you were, right?
This one kept looking at Ken and Ken stayed WAY back. lol Simon too.
We made it to Montana! Crossing a state line in a truck is not as much fun as doing it on the trikes, but still, this makes our 9th state! Hard to believe! Thanks for the ride Dad! We appreciate it!
