July 22-26: Our Week at Yellowstone National Park

First of all, I appreciate your patience as I wrote this post.  I know it's over two weeks since Chrissa last posted.
We had a great time in Yellowstone National Park!  We hiked, took many pictures (that's part of the reason that you had to wait so long for this post), waded across mountain streams, breathed fresh mountain air, ate picnic lunches in the park, and, most of all, gasped at astonishing views.
Sunday, July 21, we drove 300 miles and stayed at a Holiday Inn. 
The next day, Monday, we drove through Grand Teton National Park on our way (the mountains at the top of the picture); and gladly arrived in Yellowstone.
Tuesday Chrissa and I enjoyed the park.  We hiked to Wrath Falls (1&2); gobbled up lunch (well, at lest Chrissa did) by a river (3); saw Mammoth Hot Springs (4&5); stopped by Gibben Falls (6,7&8); and lastly briefly glanced at Sheepeater cliff (9&10).
On Wednesday, we witnessed many interesting things, including a bison walking right in front of our car!  We also saw beautiful Tower Falls.
Thursday obviously not the only day we saw waterfalls and rivers, but that's the main thing that we looked at.  Inspiration Point was not very inspiring, because the part where you saw the beautiful view had fallen off in a earthquake.
Our last day in the Park, Friday, we spent our time around Old Faithful area.  (From top to bottom, left to right): A waterfall (I don't remember the name); Celestine Pool; Clepsydra Geyser, Silex Spring, Old Faithful; and Old Faithful Lodge (where we had lunch).
That was our amazing week at Yellowstone National Park.
