Next stop is Mammoth Hot Springs. I think my sisters are getting tired of the thermal features I keep insisting to stop at.
We continue on our drive and stop at Undine Falls on Lava Creek
After the Tower-Roosevelt Junction, we stop to see the Petrified Tree. This stump is a remnant of a subtropical forest that grew here 40 to 50 million years ago. This redwood turned to stone after being smothered in volcanic ash.
Our last stop for today was at Hanging Valley to see Tower Fall.
Wildlife sightings for today - trumpet swan, herds of bison, mule deer, a black bear, a moose, a brown fox. We have seen so many bison that we now refer to them as "ho hum, another herd of bison." Just kidding, though.
