Jul 21, 2016 - Yellowstone N.P.

Our final day in the park took us to Old Faithful. We stopped at the Fountain Paint Pots on the way. Old Faithful erupted right on time just after we got there! Glad we waited until today as the road construction was limited to the parking area and not the road in. We did the walk to Castle Geyser and the Upper Geyser Basin. Saw some more active geysers and colourful steaming vents. Water temperature was around 155°F. We continued the loop to West Thumb and Yellowstone Lake, Mud Volcano, Canyon Village and back to Norris and Madison. Saw...

Our second day into the park was again a warm one. There was a constant breeze though that kept us from getting too hot. The Mammoth Hot springs are just that...amazing.

Still lots of wind when we got back to Henry's Lake.

The drive from Jellystone RV Park near Missoula was good and we arrived in Henrys Lake State Park. The temperature when we started was 19 degrees C. and and on arrival it was 30C. It is windy but warm. The park is quite open but has a beautiful view of the lake and surrounding mountains.

Then we were right next to 2 cabins and those folks thought nothing of walking right through our site, right past our door, rather than going a few feet around. No sense of any type of camping protocol. But the lake was pretty and the area is touted as one of...
