Yellowstone National Park
We walked many of the walks seeing geysers, paint pots, cauldrons, and other hot springs. We waited with the crowd for Old Faithful to explode with water. The crowd was betting on what time it would happen. What a beautiful geyser!
We couldn't believe how much snow there was, all campgrounds closed with 5 to 10 feet of snow in them.
On the way back we saw hundreds of Elk, Mule Deer and White-tails, plus 2 additional Grizzlies.
Saw only a few new birds: Clark's Nutcracker, Red Crossbills
Harlequin Ducks and a few other other western birds.
