Yellowstone is truly a world unto itself. It’s difficult to describe the variety of natural wonders that abound in such a relatively small area. There have been many volcanic eruptions in this area leaving a landscape that still boils and bubbles with the aftermath. There are over 300 geysers and over 10,000 thermal features in the park -- the largest concentration of such features on earth! And only two days drive from where I live! On our first day we attempted to see them all! (Well, at least that’s what it felt like.) We drove and hiked to a number of geysers, mud pots, hot springs and steam vents. The most famous, of course was Old Faithful. This geyser shoots an average of 130 feet in the air for two to five minutes. Although it is not the tallest, it is one of the most predictable.
Welcome to our travel blog, a place where David and I mix our love of photography and writing. We are all travelers on this little blue planet spinning around our blazing sun in a vast universe. Travel is not just a destination, but a journey. A journey that is full ups and downs, surprises and disappointments -- it is life. We hope that you will travel with us.
