Heading Home: 2nd Stop – Yellowstone & Old Faithful

Thursday. 29 June 2011:  We continued our trip heading to Yellowstone National Park.  On this part of the trip we were able to see a little wild life along the way.  The first sign of wild life was a sign warning of ATV crossing.  I guess ATV’s can be described as a type of wild life!  Actually we did see some deer, antelope, bison and coyotes some pictures to prove it.  On our way there we got high enough in elevation that there was still snow on the ground.  Ty got out to throw a few snowballs.  In one of the pictures it looks like it is actually snowing.  Really though, that is just bugs on the windshield.  We crossed the Continental Divide and eventually arrived at the site of Old Faithful.  We sat there for over an hour before she finally erupted.  While we waited for her to erupt we watch her and mud pots close by blowing off their steam.
