Yellowstone Park Hotel
Travel Blogs from West Yellowstone
-Stopped at Dolce for fresh donuts. YUMMY.
-Not sure if there is a more beautiful stretch of road than between Jackson and the Lower Loop of Yellowstone.
-Lunch at Old Faithful (one of the few food stops still open in the park).
-Ooh'd and Aah'd at the geyser.
-Alex was NOT feeling well, so we headed out to West …
... for the eruption. It was amazing to watch. We went to other smaller geysers and mud volcanoes...the sulphur smell was a bit strong in areas. We followed Maddison river for awhile and also seen lake Yellowstone ...huge lake ...can follow it right around. We also viewed a great waterfall. We completed the lower loop of the park. Lots of people fly fishing in the river beds...and on the banks. We did get to see any bear today..they are up the mountains collecting ...
... are still very impressive. And, because you're standing RIGHT NEXT TO THEM, these geysers are WAY more exciting! We were lucky enough to see 4 of them erupt as we were walking. The best one we saw is called "Aurum." A couple of small ones sprayed us with (cool) water and bellowed steam in our faces. I'll put in today's quote of the day here because it sums up all of this perfectly. Said with awe by Serena as we ...
... which it was meant to blow and we got there about 20 mins before it did, and that was spectacular, you could be much closer to it and it was supposedly the tallest of the 'predictable' geyser shooting water up to about 200 feet and it went on for ages.

Junior suite with king and hide-a-bed. Room had a fridge, microwave, and Vizio HDTV. TV was in front of the King, and strangely could not be turned to face the couch at all. Pool was VERY warm. Pancake machine at breakfast was a big hit with the kids (and better than the usual waffle machines, IMO). WALLS ARE PAPER THIN. We could hear our neighbors not making any attempt to be quiet. Could hear their TV in the middle of the night, and were woken up by their alarm in the morning. Friendly staff, though I overheard them making the same recommendations for meals to the people that checked in after me, though I had asked specific questions.
