After visiting Grand Teton, the next logical step is a visit to Yellowstone. Holy cow! I didn't even get to the campground before running into a huge buffalo jam. Traffic was backed up 5 miles behind them!
Hey - wait a minute! You're on my side of the road!
This group was all females and babies, and a couple of the adults were limping. It was so sad. Either they were injured or very old.
The next day, we started out by going to see the Old Faithful area. Straight off, we went right by some elk. I guess they find it easier to travel on the roads too.
Firehole Falls was our first stop.
And then we hurried on down to Upper Geyser Basin and the Old Faithful area.
Yellowstone was the very first US National Park, named by President Ulyssus S. Grant in 1872. You can definitely see why.
While waiting for the expected eruption time of Old Faithful, I wandered around the area, looking at other geysers and pools. This is Doublet Pool.
And then I joined the other thousand or so who were waiting for the eruption. Hold on to your hat!
Thar she blows!
We then went to Biscuit Basin, where we were greeted by yet another buffalo. I hope that fisherman in the background is keeping an eye on him!
