Our next stop was Mammoth Hot Springs. There is a large visitor center and hotel and is a hub of tourist activity. Waiting in line to pick up our junior ranger booklets, I was reminded that we were indeed in cowboy country!
You can’t really see it in the pictures, but there is water trickling down all of these rocks.
I loved the puffy clouds that day!
This guy was waiting for us to drop crumbs from our picnic lunch by the river.
The boxed lunch came with a sandwich, bag of chips, cookie, drink, apple, and piece of candy. They also packaged the condiments, lettuce and tomatoes separately, which was nice.
It was nice to eat right by the water, but D and I received tons of mosquito bites! The kids somehow managed to escape.
