|Beautiful sunny day, perfect for going into the park. We went into the west entrance and headed south around the Grand Loop. So much to see in this stretch. The Lower and upper Geyser Basins, Paint and Mud Pots, and of course Old Faithful. Some wildlife was out and about. We packed a picnic lunch and found a shady picnic grove to enjoy it. Dick found a small pine seedling that he knows has great potential for the future. Hard to believe we spent the day in a large active volcano!
