Yellowstone Trip: Day 8

We decided to take a day and drive to Grand Teton National Park -when you pay to enter Yellowstone, this includes entry to Grand Teton - a little over an hour away from Old Faithful.  Grand Teton is a mountain range in the Rockies.  It's quite beautiful.

Perhpas this is where we will see our grizzly bear?  No such luck. We only saw a trailer explaining how to use bear spray (which we have a can of) and what to do and not to do in case of an encounter.

We did see 2 sand hill cranes though.  They are quite pretty and noisy too!

We did see this beautiful little church.  It was completely made of wood - inside as well.  There was a sign that said it was illegal to light a candle in the church.  This beautiful little Catholic Church was built in memory of those lost in the 9/11 attacks.  What a nice gesture...

For lunch we had the most disgusting nachos I've ever tasted!  It was a bowl type dish.  At the bottom were nachos.  On top, piled a mile high was chicken, then on top of that was tomatoes and onions. On top of that was cheese.  They were so gross that Remi ended up getting sick from them! Yuck!

Once we got back to Yellowstone, we decided to go see the Grand Prismatic.  It's in a basin near Old Faithful.  Wow!  It is quite beautiful!  The colours are just breathtaking! Tomorrow, we will try to get to the path where you can actually see it from above.  It's supposedly even better from there.

When we got back to our cabin, Remi went to bed and Sophie and I went to explore.  We took some great shots of us jumping off a bench in front of Old Faithful.

All in all, a very nice day.
