|Cougar Creek in Gallatin Natl Forest|
Needless to say we will be spending a lot of time on weekends in Yellowstone and the Grand Teton National Parks (which is on the south side of Yellowstone). If the parks get too crowded we'll have plenty of hiking in the National Forest, too. We took a walk on Friday and here is a picture to get an idea of the scenery.

|The Grand geyser|
One highlight was when we were lucky enough to see the Grand geyser, which only goes off every 12-14 hours, without sitting and waiting for hours. Same for the Beehive geyser, pure luck. Oddly enough, we didn't see Old Faithful because we weren't in that area when it went off. No problem., we have all summer to see it.

Here are a couple more pictures and a video (the only way to give justice) of the bubbling mud pot at Artists Paintpots.
