Roadtrip: July 2017
Finally got a nice daylight view of the Snake River Canyon, then back over the Perrine Memorial Bridge and on our way to Yellowstone.
So-so lunch stop at Idaho Falls, but at least it was cooler than Boise, so we didn't cook outside in the heat. The falls were very wide and not very tall, but somehow that just made them more unique. Then we got detoured right outside of West Yellowstone by road construction, fortunately our only notable detour of the trip.
The detour around the other three sides of Hebgen Lake actually worked out, got to see the fishing lodge that Erik's parents are planning to visit, and it was some lovely country. I think we ended up a solid two hours late, but not a big deal considering the rest of the day was planned to be bumming around inside the national park. We dropped Ty off at the cabin after a minor SNAFU, and then ran off to Old Faithful.
The park rangers say it's not the biggest or most spectacular geyser in the park, and I have to agree-- you see Old Faithful because it's so famous. Still an experience, but honestly the Grand Prismatic Spring blew us away (while the mosquitoes tried to carry us away, bite by bite...).
