Yellowstone

As we worked our way up to Montana, we spent the day seeing Yellowstone. When we looked at the map we mistakenly thought we could hit all the high points in one day. It helps to look at the scale on the map! We hit 2 out of the 10 top thing to see.
One of those was Lake Lewis. No, it is not a scene from the Titanic, it is just still really cold. The lake was still frozen! We were frozen too since I packed for 100 degree Arizona weather.
Old Faithful
We lucked out and arrived about 15 minutes before Old Faithful erupted. She erupts approximately every 80 minutes. That would have been a long wait with the monkeys. "Eruptions can shoot 3,700 to 8,400 US gallons of boiling water to a height of 106 to 185 feet lasting from 1.5 to 5 minutes. The average height of an eruption is 145 feet.The highest recorded eruption was 185 feet high."- Wikipedia
We were all pretty impressed by it's height and the quantity of water that pours out. Very Cool.
As we were driving through we saw a few herd of buffalo! This is a shot from the car. They were so close.
Then we came upon this mama and baby that were literally walking on the other side of the street. It was really neat to see how massive they are up close.

We still have so much of Yellowstone to explore, but I think we will come back in August some time when it is a little warmer and we can spend a few days instead of a few hours. It was really too much beauty to try to take in one day.
