The Great American Vacation Series (Post #2)


Okay so all seven of us are stuffed into my grandpa's SUV. By the way, thanks grandpa for being so awesome and letting us all ride in your car!  And we're traveling through Yellowstone!

Side note here: Yellowstone has some vastly different parts to it. It has forests, geysers, and a bunch of other neat things (of course, some of which you will get to see)

Anyways here are a few pictures:

This is some of the beautiful scenery that we viewed. A lot of the area of Yellowstone is like this. Isn't it gorgeous?

This is the first "steam" pool that we saw. It is basically a pool with sulfuric water in it. This one was bubbling and you can tell that is hot from the steam.

This is another one that we saw. I think it is so amazing that you can go from lush green grass to steaming crystal clear pools of water. This particular pool fascinated me because you could see straight to the bottom of it. Also, my dad has polarized sun glasses and when you put those on you could really see how deep they are. If you don't have polarized glasses on the pools only look about three inches deep but when you put on the glasses you come to realize that they are, in reality, several feet deep.

This is another view of the same pool.

This is the area where some of the books were. Here is part of the run off of one. I know you aren't supposed to do this but I actually felt the water and the amazing thing is that even though we were just a couple of feet from one of the steaming pools the water was cool (almost cold).

Anyway, that is just a few of my pictures. School has started up again so I am sure to post something about what I am doing but you can at least enjoy these few pictures. TTFN!
