Yellowstone, Day 1 – there’s way too much to share in just one post…….

We spent two full 12 hour + days touring through Yellowstone. There is just so much to see there! A wildfire was burning south of Old Faithful so that portion of the road was closed. Thankfully, we were able to get to Old Faithful but we had to do some back-tracking to get to other areas in the lower loop of the park.

While we were slightly disappointed over not seeing any bear or moose, we were blessed by seeing a variety of other wildlife! The weather was fantastic with mostly sunny days with temperatures in the mid to high seventies. One day was a bit overcast with some slight sprinkles but soon the sun popped out again.

The first day we spent in the lower loop, concentrating on getting to Old Faithful. We were a bit surprised to find the Old Faithful Inn closed due to Covid but we only had about an hours wait to catch Old Faithful at work. Hopefully, you’ll enjoy the following photos which are (kind of) sequential


As we were walking to our car, we passed quite an unusual scene. A huge raven was sitting on the back of a parked motorcycle, pecking away at the backpack. There were wrappers on the ground around the bike and the bird was working hard to get to the rest of the goodies. I took a video and I think you’ll get a kick out of it….we can only imagine what the rider thought when he returned to his bike!!

From Old Faithful we headed north again on the lower loop and around to the west then south, ending at Grant’s Village before heading for home. Everywhere you go throughout the park, you are reminded that you are sitting on top of a super volcano. Below are some of the sights and animals that we saw along the way.

Happy Trails!
