We mostly recovered from yesterday's trip to the Grand Tetons. Went out to dinner with Phil and Doris to the Oregon Short Line Railroad. Phil & I had prime rib. The prime rib was just OK, but the horse radish had character.
This was a 7 hour, 144 picture day.
First we went back to Firehole Canyon Drive because it is so pretty. We saw tourists demonstrating their ability to read and follow simple instructions.
And a deer modeling her(?) cool necklace
On to Gibbon Falls where this cute young couple asked me to take their picture.
Next was Artist Paintpots. It was a hike.
The Artist Paintpot was what looked like a big pool of bubbling clay. A still photo doesn't do it justice, but I think you can see some spouts and bubbles.
There were many other Geothermal phenomenon in the area, but not that different from what we saw at Old Faithful.
On to Virginia Cascade. Perhaps the most remarkable sight here is how hard they worked to put that road in.
We had lunch at Canyon and then went to all the overlooks.
Tree de jour.
On the way home we saw some deer with big horns resting (posing) in a meadow.
Where's my new 12x zoom, 5 MP camera?
After supper, Phil & Doris invited us over for snacks and a viewing of the Quartzsite 2004 Red Hat Tea. It was hilarious. The guys showed off their lastest toys.
