Yellowstone: Firehole Falls and Old Faithful

On the morning of September 20, from our lodging in West Yellowstone, we drove down the west side of the lower loop, on our way to see Old Faithful geyser. On the way, though, we took a side trip through Firehole Canyon.

  1. Wow, that last shot must have been a real experience up close. I like the steam that evaporates throughout the landscapes. And Firehole Falls are breathtaking. I hope you will post some of that camcorder footage on your blog. Would love to see it.

  5. Oh wow, all the pictures are stunning from the falls to the geyser spewing and looking like an iceberg on land. Really good pictures! I agree with Mersad - I'd love to watch the footage of Firehole Falls if that's possible. If not, it's perfectly understandable. Have a great weekend!

  8. Thanks for the memories. We traveled the same route when we stayed in West Yellowstone. Unfortunately it was fairly smoky when we visited Firehole Canyon. Of course, I fondly remember Old Faithful and the people we met there as well.

  10. Hi Linda! Those steam vents are amazing! I went to Yellowstone as a girl, and I don't remember seeing so many of them. And that sky...so BLUE! I'm sure the air out there is a bit thinner and clearer, but that is just spectacular.
    Loved the timed shots of Old Faithful! How can this amazing eruption keep happening year after year? Our earth is so fascinating, isn't it? What a great trip you had, and you are not even done yet!
    Love coming along for the ride,
    Ceil

  14. It was only a few years ago that I first glimpsed Old Faithful and it was far more exciting than I'd imagined it would be.

  15. Linda, what glorious photos!!! Great minds think alike, or so they say. :) I just made a new blog post before I came here, and you and I both had our minds on waterfalls. How cool is that? That first photo is exactly the type of atmosphere I love and could spend a long time enjoying and meditating. Beautiful, Linda!
