When in Wyoming I spent two days in Yellowstone National Park. What an amazing few million acres of land!

The famous Old Faithful geyser.

My friend and I quickly realized that Yellowstone is not so heavy on hiking, but more driving from site to site. We managed to complete a few 3-miles hikes and were satisfied with that after our big 20-mile loop from the previous day.

A beautiful geyser basin. This photo is unedited, so yes, it really looks like that.

There are microbes that thrive in the boiling water and cause these beautiful patterns near the geyser basins.

The Grand Canyon of Yellowstone was my favorite site of the two days. Absolutely stunning.

As the passenger in the car I was able to let my eyes rest on this view for miles and miles … and miles.

There were a ton of places to camp – we even got lucky enough to be walking distance from bathrooms! Oh, the things you get excited about while camping

Mammoth hot springs was unlike anything I’ve ever seen. It felt as if I had landed on another planet!
