DAY FOUR YELLOWSTONE ROOSEVELT ENTRANCE

TIME FLIES WHEN YOU’RE HAVIN FUN

Yes , I am 2 days behind but dang I am havin fun.  The drive to GARDINER was uneventful but we did take a quick detour through BUTTE…the town is know for is mining copper, mostly but also some lead.Elk walking the streets of GARDINER Mt. Each evening…pretty cool….

 

Backside of Roosevelt entrance due to sun shining on the front.. but I do have the front…

See told you I had it…lol

Bison herd settling down for the nigh along the fire hole river.

The Hamilton group was the original concession for all of Yellowstone for quite awhile.

Eagle eating along the river…I have never seen this before and couldn’t believe how big he was.

Dragon’s mouth fumerole…stinky too.

The back side of the Original INN AT OLD FAITHFUL…..note  the widows walk along the top when the park was in the about the 40’s they would allow visitors that were staying at the Inn to go up to the top and they had a dump off the to the left and bears came there to eat at night and they would shine lights on the dump so the visitors could see the bears this was later discontinued due the fact that it was actually harmful to allow the bears to root in the garbage.  Now the Inn is too fragile and no one but employees are allowed up there for mostly repairs.

Resting near the Inn.

Grand PRISMATIC POOL. Swiped this off the internet because you can only see it like this from the air.. you can walk all around it but you can’t appreciate the color because you can’t get up high enough to look down on it.. also no drones allowed in the park

CASTLE GYSER going off in the distance. We are waiting for Old Faithful…

And it begins…but I didn’t get a good photo of it all the way up due to it being on the video and its too big to post here this 40’s poster will have to do… sorry

Another one of my favorites is this poster of the Yellow bus….they were there a long time ago and they brought them back a few years ago but like so many things COVID caused them seriious problems due to only a few on the bus due to social distancing…so it only ran a few times and they are not sure if or when they will start them again. ….so sad…

Raven’s are everywhere and I just love them but I won’t bore you with how many photos of them I have taken…

.This is the most impressive place… and the color dazzles the eyes… I think because it is not as big as the GRAND CANYON that it is actually more impressive because you can appreciate the size and the color better.

The Lower falls of the canyon and if you look close you can see that you can walk right out to the edge to look over ….my favorite place….when I was about 9 or 10 my folks took us here and we were actually able to watch them dynamite the area to build the ledge out to the edge… my dad had a two way radio in the car and we had to turn it off as it was a possible problem for them with the dynamite. So many memories.

Ok Yall isn’t arm chair travel fun..

Thanks for stoppin by…old traveling shoes…aka kath
