When we got to the Spring, we unfortunately realised that you can't really see it if you're standing at the same level as it. You could sort of see the colourful edges, and the steam was actually coloured like the different sections. We saw some people on a hilltop nearby looking down, but we didn't have time to get up there and look ourselves. It was still amazing though! Our final stop of the day was to another geothermal area called the Fountain Pots, with some more geysers, pools and awesome geothermal landscape. After that we went to camp, and my friend on the bus lent me her spare tent, so I got to camp for the first time! We made veggie burgers for dinner, and started up the campfire early.
Then someone found out there were bison grazing by the river right next to camp, so we made our way down there to check them out. They were so cool! There were loads of adults and even some little calves sleeping next to the river. Luckily they were a safe distance away but we could still get a good view of them! We watched them for a while, before heading back to the campfire
Then to finish she got everyone to sing 'Home on the Range'. I didn't know the words, so just listened to everyone. My excuse is I'm not American. That night I had a fabulous sleep in my tent. I was so warm and toasty, it was a complete contrast to the Grand Tetons! But in the morning we found out a bear had been through camp that night. Pretty cool, right? I think it's awesome, Mum doesn't agree though....
