Yellowstone National Park… That is where we are going today. As good as the pictures turned out, it is even more spectacular when seen with your own eyes. We started at the North Entrance and passed through Roosevelt Arch.
It is nearly an impossible task to just pick a few photos, I took over 300 today.
There are many geysers to stop and see such as The Clepsydra Geyser.
But of course the most famous of all geysers is Old Faithful.
As we were watching Old Faithful erupt, 4 Chinook Helicopters flew overhead and landed just out of our sight, but I had heard on CNN that President Barack Obama and his family will be visiting Yellowstone Park in 3 days, and I can only imagine that these helicopters are bringing in whatever is required to keep the President safe during his visit. I am glad that we won’t be here at the same time, not that I wouldn’t like to see him, but I really think it is going to be a nightmare of security checks and traffic to get anywhere near Old Faithful or anywhere in this vicinity.
The Excelsior Geyser Crater, although it is currently not an active geyser, is still something to see, the colours are beautiful.
But the Grand Prismatic Spring was probably the most beautiful of all the springs that we saw today.
The Opal Pool was pretty neat also.
We crossed over the Continental Divide, then descended to the shores of Yellowstone Lake.
We visited The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, again the scenery is beautiful. If you have never been to Yellowstone Park, put it on your list of places to visit.
Just as we were leaving the Park and heading to our hotel, a Pronghorn Antelope came along to say goodbye to us.

We will be visiting Yellowstone again tomorrow, so stay tuned for more photos.
