Yellowstone: Waterfalls, Sulphur, and the Grand Canyon

What does one do at 7am in Yellowstone in the snow?
1) Walk up and down steep hills to waterfalls

Our very first stop. The short steep hike warmed us up.


2) Bundle up and get as close to the boiling sulphur pots as possible

The Artist Paint Pots: warm enough to melt the snow. Too bad the colors didn’t show.


3) Search an open visitor center to obtain WARM coffee. This was nontrivial.
4) Stare at the Bison, white heron, (far away) bear, elk, etc populating the park.
5) Be amazed.

I terrified Katrina with this pose.
