Tour of Yellowstone Park, An 11 Hour Tour

These photos are only from my camera, will add cell phone photos eventually, also will dig out the names of the water falls, etc.  Not that it matters, we just enjoyed the experience and learned so much, just a lot to keep straight.  We are so lucky to be here, the tour was a God send, our motor home would have not be allowed in many areas, no parking, crazy crowded.  Paul was happy to observe instead of drive.  It is good.

Our guide, John, at the Lower Terrace of the Mammoth Hot Spring
The Chocolate Pot, a mud pot that is not on any maps, the heat turns the chemicals this color

This geyser erupts  continously

Old Faithful Lodge Lobby, what a grand old hotel
Old Faithful, erupts silently

Now the best part of Yellowstone Park, and the hardest to photograph and describe.  Massive in scale, amazing colors and texture, above is the upper falls of the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.  Below is the beginning of the Artist area

The Lower Falls

The bottom photos of the artist canyon don't even look real! Would love to see that.

It is so much better in person, and it was a cloudy day.. can't see how deep it is either, very very
