October 3, 2008 Lions, Tigers and Bears
We have finally made it to Yellowstone National Park and spent the day driving approximately 50 miles of it. We stopped to look at the Thermal Gardens which are vents in the earth crust. The are filled with boiling water in beautiful shades of blue and green. You can see into the vents in many of these and feel their extreme heat. We also got to see Old Faithful. The park is full of geothermal activity and at times it seems a little spooky as you really never know when this large underground hotspot may decide to blow. We saw 3 coyotes , many buffalo and several elk but no Grizzley bears yet. We are returning tomorrow for more but for tonight we are staying in a cabin in a little town just outside of the west gate in Idaho.
