Third Day

Early the morning of our third day in Yellowstone, we headed towards the North entrance. The first place we stopped was Norris Geyser Basin. I was anxious to see the Steamboat Geyser.

After watching this geyser for awhile, I noticed a sign that pointed down a trail that said it would take you to the museum without having to climb all the steps. That’s where we were headed, so why not? My husband was waiting for us there. I honestly thought it would be a good idea. Wow, was I wrong. No, I didn’t have to climb any steps, but I sure had to walk a lot farther than if I had just climbed up those steps. That hike was much longer than I had anticipated.

Next, we drove to Mammoth Hot Springs. On our drive up the canyon to see the Undine Falls, we also saw elk along side the road. I think if I had put my hand out the window I could have touched him.

Before leaving the park, we stopped along the roadway in town to see some mule deer.

We completed the day by going to a barbeque and great entertainment by the Bridger Creek Boys at the park in Gardiner Montana.
