Our first stop in the park was Grand Prismatic Spring. Look it up some time. The view from the air is much more impressive. From the ground, it is a colorful, steamy pot of boiling water. One of the largest in the world, this feature was one of my favorites in the park.
We then traveled to Storm Point for a glorious hike. We witnessed a Hoary Marmot sunning himself (or herself) on a pile of rocks. We searched the beach for beautifully shaped wood. We looked for bears but didn’t see any. Anita and Jonathan claim the heard a wild turkey but I’m not convinced.
The view was stunning. The wind blowing off the lake was powerful. It was obvious why Storm Point is a favorite among the staff in the park. Not a soul was there while we were on our hike.
