Now for a switch of gears.
We started this trip in the North West of the park which is relatively quiet and fauna rich to the geothermal area with geysers and hot springs. We started by exploring the area of Norris which is just north of Old Faithful. Once we passed the small museum, it looked like we walking (safely on the boardwalk) on another planet, with craters, fumeroles (wholes in the earth ...

My travel book suggested it was a good seldom used hike as most of the people that visit the park don't stray more than a 100 feet from the car....perfect. We headed out on it about 9:30 and the light illuminated the opposite wall perfect. Homer especially liked the solitude, thick forest on one side and cliffs and view on ...
