Kayaking, fly fisherman, waders, swimmers, all are testing the currents of the Yellowstone as it flows north
We saw a bighorn in the middle of the road on a bridge and stopped as it trotted up the hill next to Bob’s window. This made Bob’s day, perhaps his year!
Old faithful has been faithful for at least 135 years. This is my third time. Perhaps a thousand folks watching waiting applauding then driving away to the next adventure.
I’ve seen old faithful three times. I sat and waited wondering if the geyser would let us down finally and we could say we were there when the old geyser was unfaithful. And I wondered who had come to this spot long before me without the price of admission to sit and wonder at the moment. Or who discovered it for the first time. Kiowa, Blackfeet, Cayuse, Shoshone, and other tribes traveled these same Yellowstone trails. They visited geysers, conducted ceremonies, hunted, gathered plants and minerals, as well as obsidian, which they used to field dress bison.
