6-27-2010 Yellowstone - Day 1

We arrived about 9 a.m.


and saw lots and lots of dead trees (forest fires)...


Lake Yellowstone is stunning
and we finally saw some buffalo...
they were as thick as the mosquitos and everywhere!!!


Our first stop was to see the Old Faithful geyser...
I've never seen a geyser before so this was quite a thrill!


The Grand Prismatic Pool was my favorite site at Yellowstone!


(a close-up of the GPP from the boardwalk...a bit scary!!!)


K-4 #7 ... our lodging for 4 nights...
no internet (hence, no posts for a week and a half!)...
no phones or cell phone coverage...
no television...
and some had no running water!
(Fortunately, ours DID have running water!)
