day 6: it was a rainy day so we decided to do a road trip toward Old Faithful. The rain was pretty heavy until we arrived Old Faithful. We found a good stop in the cafeteria and watched the eruption twice. It was quite impressive, in particular, how predictable it is, every 90 min, +/- 10 min, that is why it is old Old Faithful, the most famous gayser.
we were back to Canyon area in the afternoon, the rain has stopped, so Tony and I did some hiking
a surprising arco iris
day 7: toward Old Faithful and stopping at each sight points.
first: Artist painpots
then passed by Gibbons fall
then we stopped for a little water play on firehole canyon drive
next was Ojo Caliente by the fountain flat drive
next was the famous Grand Primastic Spring
the view was not complete so Tony and I decided to explore more. We found an off-trail by Fairy Falls Trailhead that could give us a better view, so we left Sofia and my parents in the car and we went
after climbing up for 20 min, we saw this!!! Spectacular!!!
we also stopped by Biscuit basin and black sand basin before arriving at Old Faithful, almost 6pm. We witnessed again the eruption, had dinner and called it a productive day
day 8: it was our 6th day in the park, we’ve seen and done almost everything, so we looked at the map and circled those sights that we missed and there we went.
we did 2 hrs hiking to see Lone Star geyser.
it also has a predictable eruption time, every 3 hours. We didn’t plan for that but it started to erupt few minutes after we arrived. So lucky!
on our way back to the lodge, we stopped by lake hotel general store for its ice cream again. soooo delicious!!!
