July 18th, 2012 - Yellowstone Tourist Style
We arrived at Yellowstone after hours and decided to sleep in a parking lot since we could not navigate very well in the dark. As soon as we awoke we headed to Norris Campground to snag a spot. We set up, ate some breakfast, and headed out to explore. After stopping at Mammoth Hot Springs and some other spots along the way we headed down to Old Faithful arriving just in time to watch it errupt. Then we stopped by the most breathtaking place of the day the Midway Geyser Basin which is home to the largest hot spring in the United States the Grand Prismatic Spring. The sun was beginning to set and it was time for us to make the long drive back to camp to top the night off with a hot meal and a campfire.
