Part 4 - Yellowstone National Park

Bears, geysers, bison, rivers - Yellowstone has always sounded like nature's Disneyland to me!




Yellowstone was everything I thought it would be - better in fact!

 


The park itself is massive and we spent a good three days exploring everything we could access to (some roads were still closed due to snow).




The thermal pools and bubbling geysers are a bit scary if you stop to think about it too much - you're standing inside a volcano basically!




We kept seeing bison prints really close to the edge of geysers, and then finally found this guy having a snooze on the hot sands - not something I would recommend!

Nope I didnt get close to this guy, thank goodness for zoom
Something that really amazes Aussies - frozen lakes! Lake Yellowstone still had ice on top - not something you see down here in Australia.


And of course we had to scramble down there and check it out.


Craziness. Jakk and I are already talking about coming back in a couple of years if we're lucky.




It was a very sad morning when we had to leave for rest of the Vintage Road Trip - heading across Idaho to Oregon...
