Oh, driving into the park first thing in the morning when it's still a little chilly out and the sun is coming out to greet you, it's just beautiful. Josh and I both agree that morning was the best part of the trip, just taking in the beauty God created for us.
Our first stop was along this beautiful, fly fishing only, river. It was so peaceful.
We saw our first wildlife in the park, a few elk.
We stopped at another beautiful river. It was so pretty.
The water was so crystal clear.
There is literally steam coming out of it.
We went clear up the border of Montana to the Mammoth Hot Springs. They weren't too impressive at first. I thought they were dead.
It looked like the surface of the moon and the sky was so blue. (blogger doesn't do these pictures justice)
Then, around the corner is the first hint of a thermal pool, finally something!
Josh and Rosie didn't want to fight with the big group of people ahead of us all over the mountain so I went to explore the Canary Spring while they waited for me...for like an hour!
I passed the tour group as the ranger was talking about the different rocks and got to the top of a spring. I was so beautiful up there.
I met back up with Josh and Rosie and we finished walking through the springs, although the Canary Springs were the most impressive and active.
