One of the most naturally beautiful places I have ever seen in my life. Within the first five minutes of being in the park, we saw a string of cars lined up on the side of the road. Coming to realize that this meant photo opportunities of wildlife and nature.

The first set of geysers we thought was Old Faithful.
More from the first set of geysers.
Kory, Timmy, and my adventure hat waiting for Old Faithful. We were approached by a couple wondering when the geyser would blow and we kind of shook our heads like there’s a schedule for the event (pshhh). Come to know, we were being jerks and an elderly couple couple approached us wondering if the spaces next to us were available. We never got their names, but “George” and “Barbara” informed us about the window when the geyser was expected to erupt.
AND THERE SHE BLOWS!!!
Coincidentally, we ended up at one of the three lodges around Old Faithful, in the same deli, as George and Barbara. We spent about another hour with the elderly couple over some deli food and ice cream. They shared their stories, knowledge, and experiences that they have gathered throughout the years of traveling the world. Before we went our separate ways, we told them we were driving a big yellow Penske truck. On our way out of the parking lot, we saw a black convertible Mustang with, you guessed it, George and Barbara!
