More Yellowstone And A Lazy Day

Tuesday morning, all of the smoke in the sky made the sun look different.

We started out a little later arriving at Yellowstone about 10.  We were still able to get through the gate pretty quickly.

We headed toward the Old Faithful Geyser Basin to see some of the places we had not been to yet.  We first took the Firehole Canyon Drive.

We drove through the canyon following Firehole River until we came to Firehole Falls.  We stopped for awhile watching the falls

 and the river from the other direction.

 We headed over the Black Sand Geyser Basin walking along the boardwalk there to see the geysers and pools.

We spied another elk while we were at the basin.

We continued on past the Old Faithful Inn stopping at the Kepler Cascades.

This was the view right below us on the viewing platform.  That's the river in the middle.

We continued on a little further crossing the Continental Divide.  It was so smokey, everything was hazy.

We decided to turn around and head home.  On our way, we saw more elk.  We couldn't resist these pictures of these beautiful animals in the wild.

 This morning, the wind was blowing so hard that the little lake we are staying by looked like an ocean with all the whitecaps on the water.  It was in the fifties all morning and we decided it was just a good day to stay home.  The highest temperature here was 64 and with the wind blowing from the north, it really felt cold.  Tomorrow, it should be warmer, we're not sure what we will be doing next.
