Anna Goes to Yellowstone

Staying overnight next to Old Faithful gave us a long afternoon and the following morning to tour the area. We saw Old Faithful erupt 5 times, often with only a few other people present. We hiked around the other geysers and hot springs in the afternoon. The next morning Gary and Pauline took a longer hike to see some geysers and hot springs they had not yet visited while Richard and Anna tried their hand at cross-country skiing.

Our extended stay at Old Faithful gave Anna time to earn the Winter version of the Junior Ranger patch.

After lunch on the third day we boarded the snow coach for the 51 mile trip back to Mammoth, followed by a drive home in a snow storm.
