... Rafting Company's raft and ride package)
Hotel: Cowboy Cabins (still awesome!)
Helpful hint: Book ahead for HB & raft (they do allow cancellations). AM ride was warm but not uncomfortable and allowed time to go eat before rafting. PM warm/hot and water felt great. You will get wet.

I can never tire of watching Old Faithful - might have to stop bu again tomorrow. This entire geyser basin is filled with hot springs, mud pots, geysers ...
