Yellowstone Canyon, Cascade Lake, and Mammoth Hot Springs

Oct 13th 2009 — Yellowstone — 9:03 am

Our second day we drove over the the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone and walked over to Inspiration Point on the north rim. The road was closed and we had the place all to ourselves.

We also did a 5 mile out and back to Cascade Lake, where we saw a couple of mellow looking bison hanging out under a tree.

In the evening we ended up checking out the geothermal features at Mammoth Hot Springs. I hadn’t been there all summer and it was interesting to see how the area changed.

  4. Fun Fact: The animals of Yellowstone National Park are surprisingly good photographers.

    Val, I do want to check out that Ken Burns series. I have heard good things.
