Yellowstone
Today I left for Yellowstone bright and early. After I got to the park I decided to go exploring for the first few hours because the campsite was not ready yet. I stopped at West Thumb and got my first taste of the amazing geysers and hot springs that are abundant here. The water of the hot springs was so clear and blue, absolutely beautiful.
Next I decided to just go ahead and get Old Faithful over with. It was definitely worth seeing. I was out looking at a couple other ones near it but managed to get back quick enough so catch a couple good pics.
After Old Faithful I went back to the campground and set up camp. It started to rain pretty heavy while I was taking a nap and continued for the rest of the evening and into the night. Time to call it a day.

Cheers,
Josh

Lesson of the day: Clothes do NOT make for a very good pillow.
