The overnight low was in the high 30’s, but we had enough blankets, sleeping bags and clothing to keep warm. We packed up our campsite since we had another reservation in a different part of the park the next day. After eating our oatmeal, fruit and granola bars, we drove to Gibbon Falls. It was nice to be pretty close to the waterfall without hiking!
Our next stop was Lower Geyser Basin, along Firehole Lake Drive, which we could see off to the distance during our drive.
Next on the itinerary was Midway Geyser Basin. Before the trip, I downloaded a Yellowstone app on my phone. We listened to a brief overview of the sights we were going to see along the way. I thought it was well worth $3. (There are much more extensive and expensive audio tours available for rent, but given our kids’ short attention span, the app was the way to go for us).
I was really excited to see the Grand Prismatic Spring.
The light blue steam was so cool, especially in contrast to the orange basin.
Up next: Old Faithful!
