Travel Journal – September 11, 2007
On our second day in Yellowstone — we counted the day we got to the campground as the first day because we got there so early — we headed south towards Old Faithful. Along the way, we came across a couple of big ol’ ravens. They certainly are a lot bigger than a common crow!
This hot little blue pool is called Firehole Spring. It is on the Firehole Lake Drive, a loop road north of Old Faithful. It erupts nearly constantly with bubbles of hot gas rising through the water causing a violent boiling like action.
The obligatory visit to Old Faithful…
… with a lot of other people — most of them taking pictures!
We spent a couple of hours in the Old Faithful area and then drove down to West Thumb and walked the loop through the West Thumb Geyser Basin.
