We got up early again, && were super ready to go white water river rafting. We got there at 8:20 in the morning and were ready to set sail at 9:00. Before we went out, we got our safety training and hung out until the rest of our boat got there.
&& here’s Jason!! Our newest Canadian friend.
&& then finally entered the park!! (note the sign)
We explored the park for 4 1/2 hours before hitting Old Faithful. I took so many cool pictures is was really hard to pick which ones to put up. One cool/disgusting thing about the Hotsprings & Geysers is that you can smell them before you see them. They have this distinct
STRONG smell of rotten eggs but worse. The steam that comes out of the ground makes the area so hot/smelly that you can 100% smell a spring before you even know its there.
&& then we saw Old Faithful.
After Old Faithful, we only had one more stop before we headed out of the park.
Sad that we didn’t see any animals, Katie pretended to be a bear to make me & bri smile 🙂
As we were leaving we finally saw an animal!!!
We left the park out of the east exit. We had to drive through this part of the park and it was really sad to see. 100’s of millions of trees on several mountains were d
estroyed by a forest fire. It was unbelievable how much destruction there was. 😦
After leaving that part of the park we got to see another beautiful sunset.
