Wild West 2015: Yellowstone (Day 1)

by | Oct 26, 2015 | Travel, USA Travel

We arrived at the West Yellowstone park entrance around 4:30pm where entry was quick and painless with our airport-purchased pass. It doesn’t take long for Yellowstone to welcome you – 20 minutes from the west gate we saw our first bison!

Hello Mr. Buffalo
Little did we know how many we would see on this trip!

A little further down the road we saw a herd of elk too.

A small one-way road led us to a panoramic view of Firehole Falls and river bend.

And not long after we saw our first hot springs and geysers too at Fountain Paint Pot…

We were losing light quickly at this point, so after a quick shot of the sunset from Biscuit Basin, we headed to the lodge to settle in for the evening.
