... geyser (the Old Faithful Snow Lodge). Although we found our hotel a bit 'for the masses' and the food in the various cafes across the Park pretty average we loved the Park and Old Faithful was pretty impressive - it erupts every 90 minutes (give or take mins).

One last stop in Yellowstone: the geyser basin at the West Thumb of Yellowstone Lake. Paul and I stopped here four years ago and I remember really enjoying it; it still makes me smile. It’s ...
