By the time we arrived, everyone was super tired with the look to match. So the question is "Was it worth the drive?", and my answer is
"Definitely". Just take a look at the pictures below, they are worth a thousand words.
a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs. The most famous and largest site is in Pamukkale,Turkey, which I am determine to visit someday.
Of course, no trip would be complete without a visit to the famous Old Faith Geyser. To be honest, as famous as it is, it was not impressive at all. The reason is because there are tons of other Geyser around this area that are more grand (such as Riverside Geyser). Old Faith is just that: faithful, because you can calculate the time it will start.
This beautiful pool is called " Morning Glory" and requires a bit of a hike, but totally worth it. As beautiful as it may seem, but because of pollution from garbage/coins being thrown into the pool, the water will soon loose its beautiful blue center, as it's already showing in the picture.
Although many of the natural phenomenons at Yellowstone are created by the geothermal activities, but this one is not and also equally impressive. This is their Grand Canyon. Since it was beautiful that day, we even saw a rainbow.
Yellowstone certainly have so much natural wonders, but they also offers a lot of natural wild life. Bison such as this one was seen through out the park. We also saw some elks and bears as well.
As much as this post is about the natural beauty of Yellowstone, I have got to share their specialty cuisine as well: the buffalo burger. The meat was leaner in comparison to beef, but it was still juicy. The meal here was around $10, and totally worth it, just look at that huge patty. We went to a local restaurant right outside of North gate just in case if you are wondering.
Last but not least, I leave this post with this panoramic shot of Yellowstone. This place was amazing and beautiful, probably even more so in the summer when there is less steam coming off the hot springs. If you ever consider doing a road trip, this should definitely be in your top contenders :).
