Ah, there it is. A little closer, yet still miles away and one or two crossings of the meandering Belle Fourche River.
The picture is of me at the beginning of the 1.3 mile trail around the base. It was definitely worth seeing.
Another picture of the Yellowstone River, below, but I was really going for the weathered roots of this tree.
Then it was on to Old Faithful and a wait to see it in action.
Our biggest surprise in this park came after seeing Old Faithful...
...and making a trip to the restrooms like everyone else. I came out after waiting in line to find Bud talking to his cousin Carolyn and her husband Dennis.
You just don't expect to see people from your hometown amidst all the hundreds of others in the park! Especially when you didn't even know they were in the area.
We did have some nice views of the Grand Tetons on the drive from Yellowstone to Jackson.
Why Wyoming? Because it is a beautiful state with many natural wonders to enjoy.
