I thought for sure my late booking of Yellowstone cabins meant crappy room. OMG we had the cutest cabin with out own sink, shower and toilet. I lucked out because I had know idea how hard it is to rent. See below for a picture of the cutest cabin, bear proof too.
We sat back from old faithful instead of on the benches up close. Not only did it get a spectacular view of the geyser but I caught a rainbow in the mist.
Below is my favorite geyser, Morning Glory. So clear and colorful. Unfortunately humans have been throwing items into the geyser and the brilliant colors are fading. They try to clean it out regularly but really people, how about we just do the right thing for a change huh? I’d like my great great grandkids to visit this sometime in the future.
Unfortunately we have been driving so much from place to place we haven’t got to ride except for 1 day around old faithful. There were a ton of smaller geysers to be seen in that area and it was an easy bike ride.
We camped out the following night and I was so afraid of bears I packed just about everything in the bear box. My night time wish was to see no bears on this leg of our trip and thankfully it worked.
We did take a hike around the mud volcanos and other geysers.
I was rightfully reprimanded for being too close to the realife dangerous bisson/buffalo. Apparently they can move pretty fast so my 15 feet away was just stupid. Good picture though. Not one of my smartest moves and I don’t suggest you get this close, EVER!
We kept driving north and stopped at the water falls. Feeling the surge of energy was exhilarating and frightening all at the same time.
I watched countless times as park visitors walking over barriers stepping close to wild animals intentionally, doing this was extremely dangerous. Including when I stopped to take the biasson picture instead of walking quickly away. Again not my smartest move on this trip.
Please remember even though these animals look calm they are wild and can cause major if not fatal harm to you and your children. Respect their instinct to protect and kill anything they think may cause them danger.
When my boys were little we would go to the zoo nature trail. My favorite answer when they asked if the animals would bite was always if it has teeth, it bites.
Stay safe enjoy the animals from a distance.
